Christmas is now only a few days away and I’m nowhere nearly ready.
We’re in our new house. It had been empty for nearly three weeks and it was cold! We arrived before our furniture with just a few things to keep us going. The removal men we’re due to come on Monday but didn’t arrive until Tuesday and now we’re surrounded by boxes. I have to admit that quite a lot of them are boxes of books and I haven’t even unpacked one of them yet. There is no time to read, except for a few pages of Drood, which is promising to be interesting and at 700+ pages will keep me going well into the new year.
We expected cold weather moving from the south of England up to the north, but so far it’s been warmer here than at our old house. I don’t suppose it’ll stay like that and heavy snow is forecast for Saturday. We’re enjoying the scenery here – below is a photo taken from our kitchen window. I’m looking forward to exploring the area. When we’re more sorted I’ll take more photos and change the blog header – but for now it’s still showing part of the garden from the old house taken in the summer!
Lucy has settled quite well although she isn’t allowed out yet. For a cat who complained loudly when we drove 10 minutes to the vet’s, she was remarkably quiet during the 10 hour journey here and after a few miles she only miaowed quietly a few times. And now that our belongings are all around us she’s a lot happier.
