We are in!

Sitting at the computer in the study..

I am still pinching myself - when I wake up , when I eat at the table, when I cook in my new kitchen and when I tuck my babies in at night....

We are finally here... After a huge weekend of moving, I am still unpacking and finding things but on the whole, we have basically everything moved and unpacked..
A huge thankyou to my ever helpful mumma for spending the weekend with us and most of all making my butlers the pantry and kitchen the most organised spaces ever!! Thanks for the depths of our hearts mummy - I can assure you we will not be going anywhere in a hurry - no more moving!!

The builders are still banging away outside and will be for some time but I am at peace...
The verandah deck has three sides on it and the boys will be back just after Christmas to start building the actual verandah... And then paint time..

The garage is complete - roller doors being installed Thursday..

I still have not started Christmas shopping, etc but I am strangely at peace... I cant even bring myself to go to the supermarket yet, I just want to be here, breathing it in, sorting, fluffing, placing bunches of flowers and being together....

Be warned Christmas guests - we may not have any food Christmas day but we will have a completed deck, an amazing view and sunshine to enjoy!

Thankyou so much for all the well wishes for the move... It was as painless as it possibly could have have been..

I hope you all have an incredibly Merry Christmas - enjoying good food & company...

Take care - Melissa xxx
