Well we did it! We finally moved in! I have been dreaming of this house for over two years and now I have it! Of course now I have it, I don’t know what to do with it or where to start!
By the time we got the keys on Friday it was dark and any merriment was soon replaced with overwhelming exhaustion. We spent the first night with the bed downstairs listening to all the new creaks and cracks and the scurry of what may be a hundred mice! Needless to say sleep did not come. However, as the sun crept up over the hill our sprits returned and after a long day’s work, it’s starting to feel a bit more like home.
The last two weeks have been exhausting, and we swear we never want to move house again! Fraught with problem solving, organizing and trying to orchestrate banks, currency converters, insurance companies, garages, solicitors, estate agents, removals and storage has been a bit of a nightmare. Still it’s done now and as we sit on our new terrace in the sunshine I can feel it all wash away. Now the fun begins. Kitchen re-model, pigsty conversion, electrics, boilers, water, heating, painting, tiling, and an olive grove to tend. This house will keep us busy for a long time to come!
