|Looking across our field to the purple heather covered moor.|
After many stressful weeks, many moments thinking it wasn't going to happen at all and then exchange and completion happening within four days we are at last in our new home!! The problems with buying it had taken away some of the excitement and I just couldn't look forward as so many things had gone wrong. I am now pinching myself as I can't quite believe this beautiful place is ours. We have an awful lot of work to do as it has been neglected, we will take our time and work on it over the next few years, but I have totally fallen in love with it. I feel like I have been here for months not days, it really feels like home. I love the peace, the space, the big skies, it house been worth every stressful minute.
Here's a little taster of our new home. Our internet isn't great and as you can imagine I have an awful lot of unpacking to do but will be back again with some more updates.

|Orchard, fruit trees and an overgrown polytunnel|
The polytunnel and garden have been neglected and are very overgrown and full of weeds. I have no idea how to look after the grapes and kiwis but they seem to have thrived on neglect.
|I have a purple Aga!! Those tiles will have to go.|
|My first meal cooked in the Aga, chickpea casserole of course.|
