We're In...

 but out most of the time because the weather has been absolutely spectacular over the past couple of weeks. Two bank holiday weekends in a row with super weather are something to behold! So we've been having a bbq here and there, going for walks and exploring our new town and surrounding villages. There are some lovely walks to go on, especially near the river and canal.

Leon took his first couple of steps without holding on to anything this weekend. : )

 The house move itself went fairly well. We had a few problems on the day though, the van we hired broke down. Thankfully our friends had a relative with a pick-up truck we could borrow, so all was well in the end.  Thank you Simon and Emma, you  saved the day! Most of the unpacking is done, it's just my craft area that needs sorting now. I'll be back soon with some more pics (i forgot to take my camera when we went for a walk into town). There's a beautiful little green grocers shop in the town centre. I'm so happy we moved here, I feel like I'm on holiday at the moment.

See you soon!


  1. Soooo nice ! What a great place to live! I live on a lake so I feel like I'm on vacay all the time too!!!It's a great thing for kids! By the way, what are crisps? I might be going to France next year...maybe we could meet somewhere! Wouldn't that be cool?
    You really should get an IPod,so when you forget your camera,you can always snap's so small!

  2. I'd love an IPod, my phone and camera are very outdated now. An IPod would probably take better photos than my camera! lol

    Crisps are what you would call chips/potato snacks/corn snacks. But chips in the UK are like chunky french fries.

    That would be amazing if we could meet someday! :)

  3. Beautiful pictures! I would love to live near a lake...

    And congrats to Leon!!! =)

  4. sounds great, the weather has been so good, we know it won't last so it's great to make the most of it i say!

  5. Well done to Leon, there'll be no stopping him now and you'll need eyes in the back of your head. I've never been to Boroughbridge, it looks lovely though. Glad the move went ok, and that the breaking down of the van didn't cause any problems.

  6. Can't wait to see your new home! I can't believe the movers van broke down.

  7. Aaw - it looks lovely, there! so pretty! :) I hope the settling in is going well! There's nothing like a new place to call home, I think. :)

  8. I've left an award for you on my blog. You're not under any obligation to accept it if you don't wish to, but I just wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your blog.

  9. Wow, these photos are so gorgeous, no wonder you've been spending more time out than in :) Looks like you've moved to a pretty fabulous new place.

  10. Can't wait to see the house! Your boys are gorgeous!!!
