Its final, moving month is here and the clearing and cleaning has begun. We are finally moving to the country. This is going to be the biggest transition of my life, even though its only 5km out the road it feels like 500.
I am excited for our new chapter in life of course but so nervous as I have lived in town forever. In town neighbours are people, in the country neighbours are cows and sheep. Shops are only a five-minute walk away in town, if we run out of milk it’s just a skip down the road. In the country though its like a million miles away and I wouldn’t be the very best at keeping the car stocked up in diesel haha I suppose I’ll just have to learn along with a lot of other things, I’m not just moving to country I’m back at school lol.
We have been blessed, we’ve been giving the privilege to move in to Gavin’s granny’s house. It is the nicest little cottage surrounded by green fields and trees and it even has its own little river run out the back, picture book perfect. Fairy-tale house just beautiful.
Knee deep in paint samples and wallpaper cuttings I am loving every moment. I can not wait to transform it to our home, light our first fire and relax with a glass (bottle) of wine although it’s a few weeks away yet. I thought you might be interested in joining our journey with updates on our progress, how we make a house built over two hundred years ago suitable for our modern-day family.
Laura Ashley is of course my number one hit for wallpaper, cushions and accessories, they just scream old cottage interiors. Old worldly with a modern-day twist. Lucky enough I have my own collection of bits and bobs I will be taking from our home here in town out to the country.
I did buy bits and pieces during the January sales, which I absolutely LOVE! Here is the style we have chosen for our master bedroom and living room. Now to get everything else sorted, flooring and curtains etc. I can not wait.
I’ll keep you updated with progress in a few weeks
