Chimney pots against a stormy sky, taken just before this spell of glorious weather we are currently enjoying.

I haven't seen wild cowslips for many years, but on our hill climb I saw loads and loads.

Alex's new car, what a beauty 


We'll be moving into the main bedroom soon, and here is the view (between the houses) that I'll be able to see as I sit in bed drinking my early morning cuppa.

Domestic bliss 

Ironing in the conservatory, overlooking the garden, on a sunny day, watched by Cassie. 
I am one happy bunny.


Sunlight shining through the bathroom window, casting its lovely shadow on the window surround

Unfortunately delphiniums dont last very long when cut

Chief tea-maker gave me a new mug for my birthday, and guess what! In computer speak where one counts in hexadecimals, I am really only 40! 

What a nice surprise


Poor Cassie really wants to be getting outside and exploring in the garden, not long now.

The first of my worktables has been erected in the conservatory, just need a bag of potting compost now, and I can get sowing.

Do you remember a couple of months ago I was altering/making curtains for the new house? Well here is one of them in their new position in the snug.

Butterfly and dragonflies 


Elephants on the lounge windowsill - yes, I know there is an ethical thing about ebony and ivory, but these have been in his family for generations, and they are beautifully crafted.

It has rained rather a lot since we arrived here, almost every day, in fact, which means we have hardly had the opportunity to set foot in the garden. Here is just a quick view through the kitchen window. 


Rog's office, with the space-saver staircase to the loft. He wont allow me to photograph it once its in use, so this is probably the only view of it you will see.

That would read John Wales Removals if the side door were closed, and they come highly recommended.
Just about to load up all our worldly possessions.


I'm back, and its catch-up time, so I'll be doing two posts a day until I get up-to-date

Just the one shot of the old house before we left, the front room.
