I prepared a blog post a few days ago about how I feel about it all but it's on the other computer - which isn't yet connected - so today, I'm just going to post the pictorial evidence of our long-awaited moving on!
|Our old living room looking a bit barer|
|The boys with Dave - what would we have done without him? The best, most cheerful help we could have asked for!|
|Bye bye number 27 - don't worry, Darwin, you're coming with us.|
|Here we are with the first van load of things.|
|Part of the ruin in the garden - oh what plans we have for this!|
|The shepherd bringing his sheep across our land - better than a lawnmower!|
|First signs of spring as the rain stops momentarily....|
|The ruin in all its 'glory'......|
|And the views beyond.|
|Ignoring the electricity tower, which we can't do anything about, this is a nice view of the house from the ruin.|
|Mateo's mattress arrives|
|And is delivered into his room. |
Mateo's room is the lowest part of the house. Look at the thickness of the walls!
|Darwin exploring his territory - the view from Ruy's window.|
|The sun didn't shine all day, but it did come out when we had finished unloading the van. |
Best time for a beer - cheers Dave, you deserve it!
|Wednesday evening, time for swingball!|
|My kitchen - Wednesday evening.|
|Still a lot ot do...|
|But showing potential.|
|Thursday morning! Wake up Ruy - lots to do!|
|Can't believe I got my sofas in after all....|
|The lounge - Thursday morning. Fire and candles lit.|
|Thursday afternoon, kitchen taking shape...|
|The weather has been unkind this week but by Sunday, we HAD to barbecue!|
|And by Sunday, I HAD to bake a cake. A carrot cake, and rather nice it was too. |
Can you see my natural style is 'clutter'...
|Saturday, one week on...stunning sky looking east.|
|The Den - a favourite spot where a great deal of playing has already taken place.|
Ruy's room is on the left.
|Ruy's room looking a bit more lived in - taken today, Saturday.|
|Romy needs some shelves...still some unpacking to do.|
|And yes, my beautiful bed went in and seems more comfortable than ever before! It was handmade for me so I didn't really want to have to part with it, or keep it in storage forever!|
|And FR is totally happy with his new red wheelbarrow.|
|We're all happy.|
We are no longer moving on.
We have arrived.
