What a busy month since we moved!  I can hardly believe that we will have been here four weeks on Tuesday.  Where does the time go?  Trying to combine work with unpacking does not help as there are still lots of unopened boxes and far too many items lying around.

One of my priority jobs was organising the kitchen.  I could not contemplate being unable to find food items and utensils or continue to climb over boxes to get to cupboards. 

I've always wanted a pantry.  Whilst my new kitchen does not have one, it does have a very large cupboard which I've designated for this purpose.  I quickly filled it with bulky food items which take up so much valuable space as well as additional supplies and there is even a large space towards the bottom where I am able to stand kitchen appliances which are not used on a daily basis, such as the breadmaker,

I dream of having a beautifully stocked pantry filled with homemade produce, but for now, I'm very happy with the results.

It has been far too long since I've posted, but one reason is that we were unable to connect the camera to the computer and download these photographs.  Anyway, we've been here two weeks now and there is a lot of work to be done, especially in the garden.  The above photo shows the lawn after we spent seven hours removing enormous dandelions and before the grass was cut.

We have a large deck at the back of the house and a back garden which can only be described as 'having potiential'.   It is good to be home.
