We were very blessed to find a suitable house to stay in while our home is being repaired,
especially seeing as we had such short notice for moving out!
This little cottage is fully furnished and we are allowed our dogs,
it's perfect for us.
We brought our bedding from home (some was provided)
because you get used to your own bedding and we wanted the children
to feel like it was at home.
Annie and Reuben are sharing which is a real novelty for them
and I think it has helped them to sleep better.
I'm glad that I had thought about what we needed to bring
and also that I had made an effort to make the practical items bright and cheerful,
it definitely makes it feel more like our place,
but even so little Annie-Rose is still missing her "real home"!!
The only thing that we completely forgot to bring was facecloths,
so on the first day I popped into an opshop and brought a lovely towel,
cut it into eight and went to my friend's and zig zag around the edges!
But if that's the only thing we forgot, we did pretty good.
I have loved finding homes for our things and making it work for us.
The kitchen is tiny so we moved the microwave (which we barely use)
to the bedroom and gave us more bench space.
All our spices and herbs live in the bread bin.
Kitchen window sill looking lovely!
We sold the caravan and had to empty that last week too,
I think there were five quilts in that, which have come here as well.
Spring flowers, the pom pom jars
and the handkerchief bag. The coloured tins hold headache pills in one
and sticking plasters in another.
The laundry had NO storage, but a quick trip to the Eco Store
and behold some wee shelves for the dog food and laundry products.
There's even a wee bed so Chrissy can some and stay the night.
I don't want to go home!! Home is looking manky as at the moment,
hopefully in a few weeks, it will look better and we will be happy to go back there.
