Home is where the heart is.

It has been one week and one day since we moved into our beloved home. 

The home we have agonised over for two and a half years. Two and a half years of collecting furniture, salvaging items and attempting to completely renovate the whole house on a budget of £5000. And we have done it!

 It really has been a labour of love and from the minute we moved our last box of possessions into the house it was home. We are settled, happy. Absolutely loving the fresh air. The rural backdrop. The retro theme. We have been doing lots of walking, playing in the garden, picking blackberries. Eating lots of home cooked food and just enjoying every second of being a family. 

Home is where the heart is

I really want to get some professional shots of the house to share with you all but right now things are so hectic here that these phone ones will have to do. I hope you get a feel for the house. 

There is still lots to do. But they are all a work in progress. 

I still want a dog, a few chickens and a veggie patch.  I might have to wait a bit longer for these though ;) 

Thanks for popping by to have a peek at our new home. We hope you like!
