And we're in!

Bob arrived with his camper van just after 9 o'clock he did two trips for us and then had to go to work but he worked really hard. This was good as Steve was struggling a bit, the first trip was ok but he really struggled with the second one.

Bob was very complimentary about our new home, despite Steve complaining about it!

We have a bay window overlooking the garden  which is lovely, it's nicely planted and well kept.

We've unpacked about 75% of our boxes, I'll unpack a couple more boxes once Steve's gone to bed and the rest I'll do in the morning before he gets up.

I know I shall change things around as I get used to living in a smaller area although it's a lot bigger than the boat.

I'll post some pics tomorrow or the day after.

Many congratulations x

YAY! You're finally in your own place on dry land again!
Get an early night, hopefully this is the start of a more relaxed life style, so you may as well start tonight!
Beano will probably be tired too, so take advantage of that, and try to get a decent night's sleep, both yours and Steve's tiredness might help you with that! If you've got any Lavender essential oil, rub just a couple of drops into the soles of your feet, it works wonders!
Enjoy your first breakfast in your new abode tomorrow! X

Having moved lots of times |I know the upheaval but having followed the "will we , won@t we" it is good to see you have finally arrived. Take care and keep safe. Pat Allen

Rambler said...

Yippeeeee!!!! So glad that Bob remembered and that he got quite a lot done in the time he had. You're in - unpacking and sorting out can be done at your own pace now. Wishing you a much more peaceful and social lifestyle from now on. Looking forward to the photos and hoping you can continue your blog. I reckon you will have plenty of topics from now on - dog walks, finding routes to the shops, doctors, summer in the garden, etc. as well as your regular cooking recipes. Happy days!
