Last Monday saw the first anniversary of us getting the keys to our new house! Hasn’t that year flown…although, at times, it also seems like we’ve always been here!

It was the Bank Holiday weekend last year that we signed and collected the keys to our new home. Excited, we opened the door to this empty house…

We were so enraptured with the place, that we started moving straight away – and never stayed another night in our old flat. We brought the mattress over with the help of a friend and kipped on the bedroom floor; allowing, the next morning, the flood of light to enter the four huge windows (that take up the entire wall of the main bedroom) and envelop us on the floor.

It took us a month to fully move everything – van and car load…after load…it seemed never ending! The piano was the hardest – and 6 wonderful friends and family helped with its nerve-racking move from a third floor attic flat into its new home. Piece by piece the house took shape…and within a matter of weeks became the home that it is today.
