The unpacking is done and what little remains are those boxes of 'extras' that will no doubt remain packed for the next few years. They will stay packed and eventually forgotten about until the next move.
This place feels like home already. Even without the pictures on the walls and the finishing touches 'finished' it feels like we belong here. My husband says he feels 'happier' here. I think we all do. The house is free standing so has more windows and more light. You can't underestimate the value of light - of views of the sky and trees and clouds and roof tops.
This is Louis and I in playroom - the sunniest and most relaxing room in the house. And even when it's looking like it does here, people always say they love this room. Louis is asleep, at the breast. Relaxed, happy and dreaming in this new old house.
