Well, it’s been three months since we moved to Norfolk and although sometimes it feels like we’ve done nothing and need to do everything, looking at photographs I took of the house today I can see we’ve brought the place on a fair amount. There’s still loads to do and enormous work that’s about to happen with our loft conversion (think walk in dressing room, en suite and loads of light) and a new kitchen but we’re getting there slowly!
I’ve enjoyed buying bits for the house and making it feel homely and more than anything have got a real kick out of making the children’s rooms perfect. Florence now has my old little double school desk which my Grandpa liberated from the skip when he was a caretaker and Jimmy’s room is a super hero dream! Mainly it’s just little bits and bobs that we’ve done but the decorating of the two living areas has made all the difference! Here’s some pictures of how the house looks now and some photos of some of my favourite pieces.
So, we still have more to do. Our bedroom will be in the loft and then our current bedroom will become a guest room (as it has an ensuite) come music room and the little bedroom is awaiting a purpose but I’m hoping for a really good one… Fingers crossed!
I’m really pleased with the move so far and although doing up a house is both frustrating and rewarding I’m mainly enjoying it!
