A New Place

We’re moving back to Suffolk next week (aaaahhh, still so much to pack)!

Last weekend we went to visit our new house, in our new sleepy riverside town, to see how the renovations have been coming along. I’ve not even moved in and I’m in love with it - hope I’m not jinxing it by saying that. All of the renovations that had to take place before we moved in have been done to such a high standard, it made me forget it’s a rental!

I can’t wait to get in there and start taking photos, and making things in my shed studio in the garden (!!! dream come true alert)

speaking of dreams come true, there are ROSEBUSHES:

An Emotional Week

Eesh, this week, you guys! What an emotional rollercoaster.I moved. Part of me feels like the last 4 years in Cambridge never happened; I'm back in the same place, with the same amount of money in the bank, doing the same old thing. But I know in reality a lot has changed for the better, and we are doing this so that we can save to buy a house. I've painted the bathroom pink, and a black chalkboard wall in the kitchen. We've put all our books on the shelves and made is as homely as we could in the 4 days that we have been here, before having to go back to work. This would normally be enough anxiety for my poor little brain for one week, but my sister had her baby, too! I'm an Auntie! I've never really come in contact with babies that much before, so to hold one so fresh out the oven was pretty nerve wracking. I know that might sound weird to some people, but this mothering instinct that most people around me seem to have does not come naturally to me AT ALL. Little Rupert; he's such a little cutie-pea, sooo tiny. Little squeaky sounds. WE'RE ALL GROWN UP! It's pretty scary.

I'll take pictures of our new environment as soon as its looking a little less like a clothes & books bomb went off. For now, these are a couple of snaps from the past week...
