As you may well know we were kept waiting til 11 o'clock on Thursday 14th to even know for sure that we were moving on Friday 15th August but we wasted no time in getting our two little dogs booked into the kennels and confirming the move with our removal company [who come highly recommended...they were brilliant].
Removal day went like clockwork and here is the last snap of the sewing room that was....
Just the last couple of Ikea boxes waiting to be packed :-)
There were no emotions on leaving the home that had belonged to our family for over 66 years...I think we had been so traumatised by it all that I was just glad to lock the door.
But as we collected these keys the tears flowed.....don't think I could really believe it was really happening.
Fitting a 4 bed roomed house into a little 2 bed roomed bungalow meant that boxes were stacked high but in the last two week we have emptied most of the essentials and the rest will be emptied when we have done the building work that we have planned.
These were the treasures found in our new back garden....lots of sorting out needed but it's a south facing back garden and it's a good size so has real potential.
This will eventually be my sewing room!!! Who does this to a modern little bungalow? It's a fab sized room but we plan to remove all the Tudor style cladding and plaster it out before I use it.
So.....here's what you really came here to see [and I'm not sorry it's taken me sooooooo long to get round to showing you my work desk this week cos I've lots to show you and am soooooooo excited with our new home].
It's only temporary but this is my work desk til we get the alterations done.....and it's already been put to good use as I've had two customers needing sewing already!! ....and for the eagle eyed amongst you yes that is my new sewing machine all set up in the middle of the picture and it sews like a dream. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
There you go girls. I really hope you like my new work desk. I'm sure it will change from week to week as we get to work on the decorating and building projects but trust me when I say I won't be moving again any time soon!!!
I just need to add a huge thank you for the lovely comments left for me on Jo's blog over the last couple of weeks and for the lovely cards some of you sent us.
