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!

  1. Sounds like a very busy time, so no wonder you didn't manage to get to the Bruanston Rally.

    "The Pratt With The Hat" can be seen here:-

    Pity about the bed - looks like it will be a case of knocking joints apart, or through a window, in smaller pieces, as previously suggested.

    I passed over the bridge at Stoke B on Sunday evening, but in a hurry to get back, as I had a passenger, who had to get back to Maidstone.
