The New House

I haven't been blogging as much as we finally moved into the new house at the end of August and it's been a whirlwind of unpacking and signing the boys up to new schools and uniform shopping.

The house is a 400-year-old character-filled joy.
It was originally 3 little cottages now all conjoined into one big house.

It needs a bit of love, such as new double glazed windows, a new shower room and the front needs a bit of TLC but with time we will get them done.
We have already designed and ordered a new kitchen, which will be fitted in the new year.

We still have a few boxes to unpack and we're on our second skip, but I thought I'd share a few snaps of the house.

The first breakfast in the new house, Jon was at work so it was just the children!
We decided to keep the room as just a dining room without a TV or sofa, and it's so nice everyone talks rather than eat mindlessly staring at the TV.
I cannot wait to get the log burner going when it gets cold enough.

The side door.

I've spotted a few gorgeous rose bushes around the garden, in the next week or so ill be getting out there and deadheading them all so they come back even nicer next year.

The younger boys didn't get into the local school due to their year groups being full, so they were given a place at a school in the next village.
I have got them on the waiting list, as I'd love for them to be able to walk to school rather than have to contend with the crazy school run traffic.

Noah started a week late due to there being a bit of a mix up with the council, but he got into the local secondary, which is literally a stone's throw away from the house and he can walk there by himself.
It has a good Ofsted, and is a small school which I think will really benefit him!

Bea's room is really coming along.

This part of the house is possibly my favourite!
I love the bookshelves and the window lets in lovely sunshine and we get to see a lovely sunset through it at the end of the day. It also still has the original shutters on it!

This weekend we are hoping to get the rest of the rubbish cleared and everything finally put away.
Then we can get into the garden and start planning that! Chickens are definitely on the hit list!
