It's been a while since I've posted a House Update, but I can assure you things are just wonderful!
We have settled in very nicely and the house is as amazing as we had hoped for! We still can't actually believe, after so many years we are finally living in our dream home!
Of course, there is still lots to be done - we have no mirrors, door stops or landscaping, but these will come. At the moment we are just breathing in the newness, exploring every corner, and appreciating what we now have.
My house smells so new. I don't know how to describe what "new" smells like, but it just does!
Everything is so fresh and uncluttered, and we have so many built in cupboards!! We have yet to even unpack everything we have in storage, as we have been taking our time and just enjoying the moment. I think once the kids are back at school, I can focus on getting everything in order.
The kids love having their own rooms. The transition from five of us sleeping in one room to the kids having their own space was really easy. I was concerned that Miss T (aged 7) wouldn't settle, because she was only 3 when we moved to the farm and before that, she shared a room with her big brother!
But I shouldn't have worried! She loves her pretty room and her new bed!
In fact, everyone loves everything!
