Now moved in
I moved in on Thursday 27-June-13 and was greeted by the builder with a bunch of lovely lilies and a bottle of champagne (did I pay him too much I wonder?!).
The house is delightful but there's a lot of work to do in settling in and there's a few things the builder needs to finish off but nothing urgent.
There's only been two really challenging things happen - my new bed won't go up the stairs no matter which way we tried so at the moment I am sleeping on the mattress which is the essence of a good bed I think and my chest of drawers didn't make it up the stairs either - may be i can dismantle them a bit further and see if they will go. At the moment they are in the sitting room which is a bit of a nuisance but it is not a huge priority at the moment.
My friend Sue (who lives in Tenby) came, along with her friend Tony, to take me out to lunch on the Friday - that was lovely and gave me something different to look forward to. We went to the Navigation just below the Stoke Bruerne top lock which I enjoyed.
For the time being I seem to be going up and down the stairs most of the day!
