we have arrived...

Good morning everyone, how are you all...well we have arrived at our new house and wow are we exhausted...I don't have a card to show you today just a little chat and some pictures of the house...everything went fine on Monday except I smashed a mirror and stood on a piece of glass while I was trying to sweep it up, not a great disaster but really sore and loads of blood for a teeny sliver of glass too, well that will teach me to walk around in bare feet

this is a photo of our new bathroom, just look at that gorgeous bath, lush isn't it...I cant wait to paint over that blue though...I must tell you what happened on Tuesday, Phil went to work and I needed food so my lovely Dad went to the supermarket with me, I waved him off as I went into the house...now I should explain at this time, we have a front door, a porch then another locked inner door...I got into the first door fine then the key went into the lock of the second one and refused to turn...no matter how hard I tried it just wouldn't budge, so I text Phil three times, then rang him twice, nothing...my Dad was off out when he dropped me off and never ever answers his mobile so no joy there, our Daughter was off out with her other half 55 miles away...so I sat and sat and sat and waited in the porch, sitting on those freezing cold tiles for 3 hours until Phil got home, we ended up having to smash the security glass in the second door to get in...so more glass for me to step on lol...turned out the door opened fine from the inside, locks but doesn't open from the outside...go figure??????

this is my new craft room, the view is lovely all green and restful...you can see from the second photo of my craft room below why I don't have a card ready cant you. these boxes are just about half there's more....'groan' where to start but start I will...

well that's me for today, I'm starting my craft room, making at least one card then off out to buy paint with my Dad...oooohhhhh we do love a good shop together don't we...whatever your up to today watch out for flying glass

Mina, what a lovely new home, certainly looks well cared for and I can't wait to see how you organise it. Hope the foot feels better soon, stepped on glass myself recently and was really painful. Hugs, Amanda x

Jak Heath said...

well pet, my Mam always said don't sit on the cold concrete as you'll get piles, so you proved the theory you got piles too but as least yours are in boxes on your new craft room floor.

Your bathroom looks stunning Mina. Can't wait to see the rest of your house and your craftroom once you've settled everything into place. Enjoy your shopping. hugs Sharon x

Mad Moose said...

oh mina, the house looks great - but please mind where you step! I stood on a piece of glass once that had been walked into the house and was in the carpet - cream too - can't tell you how much it hurt and getting the blood stain out! oh nightmare! You have my sympathy, I think you need to put your feet up and do some crafting.

Hi Mina, these things never go straight do they, the old owners might have told you about the lock on the front door, how frustrating, it makes you wonder how they actually got in, via the back door perhaps? I know you will have fun with that craft room, you will need lots of units, lucky you. hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx

Kellylouj said...

OOOH A lovely new home, we have started the task of looking for a new house and no joy as yet am excited tho as I will finally get a craft room!

Sue said...

Mina,your house is gorgeous.
Wierd door though.
Have a good day with your Dad.
Hugs Sue xx

Julie M said...

Lovely house, Mina - I can see how light-filled it is from the pics. There's always something that doesn't work/can't be opened, etc. when you move somewhere though, isn't there?!! You've just found it really quickly!

Irene said...

Your house looks lovely and bright and airy. Soon you will be organized and unpacked and creting will be in full force again.
No need to return this visit as I have the flu and didn't make a post this week.
Just getting round to comment on the blogs I follow...

Dotty Jo said...

Wooohooo Mina, here's wishing you and hubby loads of happiness in your new home! Sorry to hear about the glass - painful. I got locked in when my parents moved to their current home. It sounds as if you have a double lock of some sort. Have fun, Jo x

Tammy said...

Glad all is well and you are up and running! Love the pictures!

Hehe sounds like an adventure Mina :P But hopefully there won't be too many more hiccups, there's always going to be one or two when moving, so hopefully you're done with them now :P

Ow poor you, hope the foot heals soon. What a nightmare with the door - I think some new crafty goodies could help you feel better but you would need quite a few to do the trick.........!!

Lynne in NI said...

Ohh your new home looks fab, and I'm so envious of your craft room, what a lovely view! Hope your foot's OK.

Andrea said...

Hi Mina
Welcome to your new home - I can tell you love it!
I hope your foot is healing well.
Poor you, having to wait for so long for your hubby to come home - that is weird how the door only opens from the inside - well, there must be sense in it somewhere LOL!
Good luck with the sorting and painting.
Love, Andrea xx
