New Beginnings

Not sure if anyone is still reading this blog after all this time, but here goes ....
I finally completed on my new home on August 1st and then had the frustration of waiting to get my furniture out of storage, which didn't happen until the 13th.  I then spent a few days unpacking essentials (well the things I could find, anyway!) and actually moved in on Sunday 18th.
Here are some pics, taken on completion day.

Study which will be the music
room eventually

Living room, looking out to the garden

Dining room


Master bedroom

En-suite shower room

Bathroom (the bath is behind the door!)

Smallest bedroom - the 'sleepover room'!

Hobbies room
I've managed to sort the living room, kitchen, dining room and master bedroom so that they look presentable and give me somewhere to relax.  The study and the other two bedrooms are piled high with boxes that still have to be opened and sorted.  I still have a lot of Ced's things which I have to decide whether to keep, scrap or sell - it'll be a long job so I'm aiming to get it done within the next year and then I'll redecorate and sort out the music and hobbies rooms.
I have the internet again at long last so I'll be round to visit all our blogs over the next few days. I don't have the TV sorted yet (problems with the aerial) so it'll give the chance to write some more posts and catch up with my news. 
Hope you're all well.
