New House

Good morning all. 

Well what a difference a few days make with no meds...lots of energy to stay awake all day and considerably better nights sleep! Swollen ankles, headaches and aches and pains all gone too...I feel like a new woman :)

Yesterday was glorious here so I took some time out from cleaning up behind contractors and painting chairs to walk around our new garden and take a few photos. Here is a taster of what we've bought...these were all taken on my phone as my camera is still away being repaired. 

The house from the ground and from above and some of the many garden features.

Views around us...the track being our road into the property.

Some of the many flowers popping up everywhere...hubby was desperate to start "hacking" things down but luckily I managed to persuade him otherwise and we can now enjoy everything as it comes into bloom.

My kitchen is coming together and the painting is ongoing throughout the house so things are beginning to progress in the right direction. I'm feeling much more positive now that my get up and go has caught up with me again!


  1. O WOW, I am jealous.

    Can you invite me for a holydaytime?

    Lovely to hear that you are feeling better - medications affect some people differently, but sometimes they must be taken anyway. It's nice to hear you feel a little freedom from the side effects!
