Phoebe went for a little evening walk on 2 April 2017 and this is it she really has nailed it this time. Excuse the huge vest – they’re too big for her. This was the day it was really warm and sunny though and it was just before her bedtime so that’s why she looks like a scruff.
We’ve been in our new house for two weeks already and even though we had to wait 10 months we can now start to call this place home.
We’ve gone from a little 2-bed terrace – Lucky Number 7 to a 1930’s 3-bed semi – Lucky Number 17. And it couldn’t be more perfect. Our lovely family home right by the seaside.
We moved everything ourselves and it was pretty stress free. Starting on the Thursday and finishing it off on the Friday morning and we got the keys at about 3pm on the Friday. It all seemed to work out really well.
I was in charge of bubble wrapping all my lovely pictures and artwork and looking after Phoebe and Charlie. POG did the rest.
Our first morning was eventful with a power cut – which on a freezing cold day in an all electric house wasn’t too fun but it gave us an excuse for very early morning cuddles under the duvet with Phoebe.
It still feels a little bit like we’re on holiday but I’m sure in the next few weeks, as Christmas gets closer, and we can start making it our own, this feeling will fade. It’s a completely new area so we’re having to get used to where everything is and what shops we have on our doorstep. Birchington is a lovely little village though and I’m sure we’re going to make some very happy memories here.
We also have some major decorating to do – which is something I’m mega excited about. I already have so many ideas in my head thanks to Pinterest and my own creativity. I’ll be documenting and blogging about Lucky Number 17 as our adventure begins so enjoy reading.
