the new old house!

wow! has it been so long?
 so we are kind of unpacked, living from room to room at the moment.
phil is in the middle of rewiring the house and insulating all the walls and ceilings.
in the mid eighties when this house was built insulation wasn't really thought necessary.
photos of his progress still to come.
i have just only unpacked the camera so pictures are limited sorry.

we have however been making more progress outside, the poor hubby has been removing trees like a man possessed.
thirty years of neglect has left them in bad condition, and very bad placement to close to the house is starting to effect the foundations. 
as we live on a slope with a lake at the bottom i do not want to wake up one morning only to find we are swimming with the fishes! 

these pics are from november of last year, before we moved in and the house was empty.
we snuck around for a cheeky look before we had keys so the only inside photo is taken through the window and poor quality.

drive and entrance...

as you can see the gardens are a over grown mess and need a lot of work.
nothing a chainsaw cant fix!
so more pictures to come, i will try very hard this weekend to load some more of inside the old hew house, and update what we have been doing for the last six months.

merry christmas

We finally have a phone and internet line after four weeks. 
Apparently it is very hard to change the address and set up a connection for customers that have been with the same company for eight years! 

But anyway, we have kind of moved into the new old house.
Still trying to unpack some things and find homes for everything and everyone.
I haven't found the camera charger yet so no pictures to show I'm sorry. 
But will get onto that after Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and will catch up with you again after ours. 

Travel safe and be merry!

So our little house sold yesterday.

And we brought a new old house all on the same day.
So things will be very busy as there is rather a lot of packing to be done.

I guess we will be a bit m.i.a for a while.
And will try for a few progress reports, but I'm not sure who will be our new internet provider at the new old house.

 Have a great couple of weeks, and will see you again from the new old house!

school boy

Olivers first day of school was a great success.

He was very happy to be in the same class Ella was when she started. 

And he had no trouble sorting himself out somewhere to sit.
And got stuck into some serious colouring. 

Mat time and he was happy to be left on his own...

too cool for school!

"What are you still doing here crazy lady, go home!"

Our little house is going to be very quiet indeed with both munchkins at school, what is a Mummy to do?

Any thing I want!
