The fourth week, and the end of our first month here

Doesn't time fly when you're having fun (or unpacking and trying to turn a house into a home - which is sort-of fun).

Day 22.

I knew it wouldn't be long before the novelty of doing dishes together wore off.

Day 23.

Time to reorganise the furniture in the lounge from how the removers left it to how I want it.

Day 24.

That's more like it. We seriously need some extra storage for this room, loads of books and ornaments still boxed up (out of sight, out of mind, for the time being).

Day 25.

Sunrise from my studio

Day 26.

You can buy a personalised map centred on your home from Ordnance Survey for the sum of £16.99, always worth it if, like us, you walk a lot. Can you imagine my delight to discover that we are literally yards away from a Roman Road?

Day 27.

The utility room is actually just a very large cupboard, but I've had a chance to tidy it up and now it looks quite respectable

Day 28.

The previous owner removed all the curtain poles, so we are left with this in all the bedrooms.

Dear Joy
It's beginning to look a lot more like home now - you've been working hard! How mean of the previous owners to take the curtain poles...some people, eh?
Best wishes

Well it's all coming together beautifully. I heartily second your decision on the dishwasher!!the batten behind the curtain pole holders is really useful so I wouldn't take it down. Saves drilling more holes in your walls. You could just unscrew the existing holders and put new poles up. Check out your charity shops or Freecycle for relevant sizes.You're getting there!
