It’s a cold frosty autumn morning, and the house still smells faintly of toast….you know that sort of dark morning, lights on the kitchen….warm toast smells….yeah that.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been on here due to moving house, having no internet connection, and then discovering that our laptop is well and truly dead. I am banned from the computer during the evenings as my husband is now officially addiction to World of Warcraft, so I’ve been filling my evenings with attempting to catch up on my reading and of course a healthy dose of mindless telly.
But it’s one of those mornings when Judah is easily fascinated with crawling around the house and rolling around on his back so I’m stealing a few moments on here just to say hello and let everyone know that we are settling into our new home beautifully. It is turning out to be even more of a blessing than I imagined. I love the kitchen, I love the space, I love our new carpets, I love the new rug for the conservatory, I love the family room vibe, the words and music coffee shop table, and the feeling of it all being like one big room where we can be in separate areas but still connected. I love the view of the cloud from our bedrooms, and I love having a separate fridge for just drinks! Most of all, I love the fact that this is it…it’s our home…we’re arrived. Sure life is still life, and it’s not the salvation to all our problems and challenges, but for the first time in a long time, I’m looking forward to the weekends….of just being home together as a family…the physical house is not the only reason for this…but it makes it that much sweeter.
