our new house (sneak preview)
On a flying pick-up-the-keys-and-sign-the-contracts visit to the seaside. Fancy a sneaky look at the house through my eyes?
The fireplace in our sitting room, the one with no television, heaps of books, Radio 4, and a pile of cats.
The fireplace in the playroom. Television, Xbox, trains, chemistry sets, Warhammer games, Australian soaps, muddle.
The Bramley apple tree in the garden. Apple pie, apple jam, apple cake. And yes, I’ve already unpacked the KitchenAid. (R’s response: ‘You paid WHAT? For a food mixer? Are you insane?’)
Sedums! Walled garden! Garden blog heaven.
Toadflax! My favourite plant as a child (yes, I was an odd cookie).
A stable door in the kitchen! This is especially for my friend Pip, who writes at A Mother’s Ramblings and requested a photo. You’ll note I also said Let There Be Light and there was an awful lot of the stuff. That’s iPhone snaps for you.
The funny thing is I realised as I was writing the photos pretty much sum up what new Tales from the Seaside will be all about: gardening, writing, life as a blended family of eight (eek), and cake. Sounds good to me.
