We're in! (And slow to post).

We had the stuff that had been in storage delivered on 22nd Sept, but moved in ourselves on that Friday - moments before my brother and his family arrived for the kids birthday weekend!
Here's an idea of what they found - just a little chaos.

Clare doing the hostly thing:first guests
D'you think they had fun?first guests 1
Actually, I think they did - we took the kids to Stomp which was fantastic (though just a bit long for Ben) and then they ran about through the fountains in market square. Childhood bliss! (Alice really seemed to like her neck-warmer I'd double-knitted for her - may have a pic somewhere...).
A little detail of wool getting put away...yarn!

Anyway, things are moving on with the unpacking - here are a few pics of upstairs.

and my desk on the other side (chaos of course)my deska nd shelves

And the rest of the upstairs - going in a circle from the kitchen kitchen getting there 2

More photos to come from downstairs and outside - Clare's been sorting out her bike and tool store. Hope to get those up soon!

I had been wondering how things were going so it was great to read this post. I'm so pleased you've moved in, and it must be wonderful to have your things out of storage after so long. It's already looking warm and comfortable. Enjoy yourselves.

Chauncey's FSC Engineered Oak Flooring looking fab - Treatex is great for finishing - looks like the matt version??
Well done!
