Finally an update

Friday December 18th, 2009 | Fiona

Sorry to all those waiting for the latest instalment – we’ve been rather preoccupied the last few weeks. Norman was off for the 3 days mid-week that he usually heads south, so became a workman and instructor to Martin. I’ll start from where I left off… We spent a huge amount when we went shopping,…

Work progresses

Thursday November 26th, 2009 | Fiona

The work has been progressing, albeit at a seemingly slow pace this last week, but it does progress. The tiler had to delay by a day due to previous commitments overrunning, so we had a Monday without anyone onsite – weird but enjoyable! However, the chippy was onsite on Tuesday morning to finish some work, plus reverse the…

What a howling wind…

Sunday November 22nd, 2009 | Fiona

Well, one thing is for certain – I will not need to go to the coast to get the cobwebs blown away, we had them done here! This weather has been astonishing. Not only has it howled around the house and yard, but there have been times when it has been difficult to retain my…

So much dust!!!

Thursday November 19th, 2009 | Fiona

Well, we’ve had some fun the last couple of days. Norman came home and saw all the work that had been done in his 3 days absence… lots! It is amazing how quickly things all start to come together, especially after all the planning. They drilled the rest of the outside holes into the house…

House is a tip

Thursday November 12th, 2009 | Fiona

Well, it had to happen, but I have been amazed at how much mess builders can make… oh, they’re not exactly untidy, but with the sheets down to protect the carpets we are keeping, and all the paraphernalia they bring with them, they have rather taken over the place. Also, I have to clamber over a…

Yay – builders are here

Monday November 9th, 2009 | Fiona

Hard to believe that it’s over a week since I updated here, but at last I have scheduled time to sit down and update it… We have had a few events since my last update – we had some fun with the rain on Sunday 1st November – the word someone used on Twitter summed it…

Settling in

Saturday October 31st, 2009 | Fiona

Well, things have settled down a bit now, with a little routine starting. Although we had our friends stay for the weekend, it was a relaxing visit – apart from poorly children (and dogs!). It was great to spend some uninterrupted time with them and have them relax as much as they said they did……

Hello from Wales or Hello o Gymru (I think!)

Friday October 23rd, 2009 | Fiona

Where to start? We have now been in our new house in Wales for over a week – and what an eventful week its been… To start, I will finish off where we left – the removers were unable to fit everything into the lorry… so my worst concerns were realised. They seemed to load…

Two more sleeps

Monday October 12th, 2009 | Fiona

I cannot believe how much stuff we have… we ran out of boxes yesterday, so I am going to removers first thing this morning to collect more. As you can imagine, my concerns about the lorry not being able to hold everything have increased! At least the way they are collecting (house first, then storage) means that…

Time goes too quickly

Friday October 9th, 2009 | Fiona

It’s amazing how quickly time goes by when you have a deadline to do things… I realise I have done a lot of moves at work, even moving my own office! However, when it’s your own house, and you are moving a little further than down the road, it seems to magnify. Sadly, I ended…
