The last month; hard slog (too many late nights to mention) and the pleasure of seeing a house begin to become a home. Unpacking is sometimes tedious, sometimes joyous, occasionally sad (one smashed pot). I carried every book we own up two flights of stairs!
There is much more we hope to do in the next few months and other things we would like to do if we stay long enough, but we do now have a comfortable home. As we did not significantly change the decor of our last home over the last 15 years or so, I am enjoying the sense of evolution in creating a new space for our possessions that reflects the people we have become but also nods at where we have come from.
