welcome to chez de rosnay!
there’s my new house! isn’t it pretty?
we’ve really loved being there so far and are settling in nicely. its taking some time to get used to country life with so many little things being different, like the heating, the water, the no internet, the bad tv signal, the no shops nearby and did i say the no internet!!!!?
but there are many other wonderful things about living there. its very beautiful and very quiet. we really like the house and i especially like the high ceilings and the space.
the village is also very cute and has a lot of character!
we are happy. tired but happy. the moving-in (as well as dealing with all the stuff that needed to be done with the old flat) has been hard work and taken up a lot of time.
as such i haven’t even been able to blog at work because all the time i’ve spent dealing with the new house has meant that there is a lot i need to catch up at work. but its coming together…
so here, my friends, are a few photos of our new place taken with my camera phone. this is what the house looked like before a torrent of bags, boxes and furniture descended upon it…
a closer view of the house
our kitchen window. i love this little view!
two views of the main living area. the photo is taken from the top of the stairs that leads to the bedroom, which i assume was converted from the hayloft. the furnishings have been removed, of course, and so you can do a little before and after comparison when i post photos of what the place looks now.
the bedroom. nice and cosey and not quite as pokey as the picture makes it seem…
this is the study. this has changed quite a bit! hooray for the bookshelf on the left there!!
except for a very brief period i haven’t had a bookshelf for my books in 4 years! it was the best feeling to finally have a home for all my books. they loved it! each one, when i put it on the shelf, snuggled and shuffled himself into place like a bird getting comfy in a nest. they’re all so happy now 😀
and this is our little field. isn’t it cool?! 🙂
