Home Sweet Home

Nestled in the rolling Surrey Hills, you will find a cottage over looking green fields and the sound of birds singing. 


Last week, Chris and I packed up our bags and said good bye to our home in Chichester and moved to Surrey. It was love at first sight when I saw the cottage and I knew it is the place I wanted to call home, after months of planning and packing we were ready for the move and it has been a wonderful place to start the new chapter of our life.



It isn't all smiles and giggles though. I have had to say good bye to Sky TV (no dish is allowed to be installed on the house), Virgin Media's cables don't reach to the area we have moved to, so this means goodbye E!, MTV, Living, Sky 1 and everything else I enjoyed wasting my time doing and 'Hello' Freeview. This also means that the super fast broadband I was used to is now very slow 'hello dial up wanna be' and the question most asked in the house is 'are you on the Internet again, I need to check *fill in the blank*'. 


But to open our bedroom curtains and see a sun rise like this every morning, I won't miss the mod cons that I seem to of grown dependent on. 



The animals have settled in and are loving the space around them. Lola is loving being able to explore and watch the birds from the windows.


I have been in the house for a week and I am head over heels in love. It is such a big change and it is one for the better, to be out in the country side where the air is fresh, wildlife all around and our family even closer. 

It is pure bliss.

  24. Good for you!! It is a big dream of mine to move to the countryside. Right now I need to stay in the city for work but I will hopefully work from home full-time by the end of the year.

    Clearly your kitty approves!
