cartographer and I are just back from poking around the new place and wandering around the rooms making little sighs and saying "this is so cool" a lot, largely because, well, it IS very cool. The place is easily twice the size of the flat we currently live in and theres a hedgehog living in the back garden (in addition to the fox and stork who apparantly frequent the back garden). The sofas are big and comfy and of the variety that you just sink into, the back garden is epic in size and the apple tree is just big enough for someone to do serious damage to themselves in an alcohol fuelled bout of tree climbing bravado. There is also what I assume is an elderberry tree the size of the moon down the back. We start moving tomorrow, I'll be taking a fibbers break for a few hours later in the evening and by saturday I hope to have all the essentials moved in so folks can come visit and we can make tea. We've also agreed that we're going to have a housewarming and BBQ at some point during the summer since theres actually space for more than five people in the house at one time.
On the way home we stopped to look in the river and mistook three ducks for two badgers, hilarity ensued.
