Mark has been made head teacher (proud wife alert!) The current headteacher is retiring at the end of this term and Mark will be taking over from then!
As part of his new job we got to move to a new house. It feels like no time since we moved into our last place, it was in fact less than a year! Regular readers of my blog will know some of the negative things we experienced since living there, but also we have some truly wonderful memories from that house. It is the first house we brought Freddie home to, Arthur started sleeping in his big boy bed here and potty trained too! I also will have lovely memories from our great garden there.
We are very excited about our new house. It’s 4 bedroom 2 (amazing) bathrooms, a big wrap around veranda and a beautiful garden!
Arthur and Freddie are settling in here beautifully, Arthur loves it and keeps proudly proclaiming “new house” with a big grin on his face!
Koopa is beside himself happy, as the house is so open we’ve decided to give up on trying to keep him outside and as I write this he’s lying by my feet next to the sofa!
I’ve shared a few pictures on Instagram, but here’s a few more! Take a peek at our new house!
These are some of my favourite bits, but there’s still lots to get sorted so I’ll share more pictures when we are fully settled in! I love that there are a few quirks in this house, it’s not new and I love that! There’s lots we can do to make it our own.
The kitchen sink might just be my favourite thing of all, the kitchen in general has a real industrial feel to it!
The house is huge and it’s definitely going to be a lot to keep on top of. Our cleaner has stopped working for us as she got pregnant and it was too much for her to do (understandably, I struggled cleaning my own house when I was pregnant let alone someone else’s!) so we are in the look out for someone new to help us out!! In the meantime I’ll tie mops to the kids feet, I’m kidding….I think!
