It’s been a very mixed and busy first five days. I’ve found it quite hard at times and felt quite home sick, which I didn’t actually expect (I have a heart after all) and gashed my finger on some glass (it is healing well) and had horrendous toothache which is unusual for me, I have a very good dental history – the pain has gone off at the moment, but we need to find a dentist.
There’s a lot on the plus side though. Chris has been pretty amazing, he is most definitely in his element. The place already looks and feels loads better and drier and he mended the pump yesterday, so the radiators work! Heat makes such a difference. It’s actually really warm in here now, as long as the fire keeps going. We’ve also found a couple of laundrettes (which I was over the moon about).
We have also had neighbors calling round to introduce themselves and someone is starting to sort our drive out over the next two days. It’s deep mud at the moment, Chris went down in the jeep and nearly got stuck, the tyre tracks are something else. It was really funny.
This is Chris, stalking me through kitchen window:
We also managed to get a bank account opened today (at least we think so), it was frustrating because you can’t seem to do much until you have proof of address, as in a letter to your address, but we managed to get some so we were straight down there. Not the best day for exchange rates we know, but we definitely need an account, every other service can then get sorted because we can set up direct debits.
I haven’t really been outside much since we got here. As in around the cottage, so I took the two little ones up the field this afternoon. This was one of the views:
it’s pretty beautiful. The heavens most definitely declare the glory of the Lord. (Psalm 19).
I’m currently sat on the landing, under the skylight writing this, it’s one of the only places we get 3G. Littlest one is crawling round enjoying himself, grabbing things, Chris and J have just come back in from sorting the barn so we can store some things there when they get delivered. There’s probably loads more to write but it’s pretty hard to concentrate at the mo. So it’s goodbye for now.
Lovely J, in the back garden.
