Goodbye and Hello

Phew, today we said goodbye to our house and moved out and said Hello to our new house, approximately 8 minutes down the road - about 6 miles away to a caravan site. With Covid we were able to negotiate a 4 month deal (we weren't due here til 1 July but our existing knackered flat roof started to leak so negotiated coming early).

 

It's luxury compared to our living arrangements for the past 2 years. We aren't eating, working and sleeping in the same room, have instant hot water, heating and can shower without a bucket under the pipe! 

 

We will still be on site pretty much every day and we still have our garden to maintain so will be keeping a close eye on things...

Hope so! At least if it's wet the builder can tackle the inside....

I love that setting. The canals are one of my fave places. Lucky you.

 We do too, once it has a boat next to our garden it will be even better 😀

 

We have managed to keep the garden relatively tidy too though longer term needs landscaping etc.

We didn't when we moved here but it wasn't a necessity for us as we loved the location anyway. We were considering a boat as an alternative accommodation whilst the building work was happening so apied and got mooring for a 50 foot narrowboat but our finances haven't allowed us to purchase one yet.
