We have one house for Josh and Ellie. One for us. Our children have therefore, in effect, suddenly become our closest neighbours and what lovely ones they are too. I do hope they pop over for a cup of tea every now and again.
Everything is chaos, obviously. Yet there is an unmistakable stillness flowing that comes from the knowledge that we have finally arrived in the home that will be ours to love for the rest of our lives, God willing. It's been a trip to get here. Travelling then moving from one temporary dwelling to the next 8 times in the last 2.5 years has taken its toll. Now, at last, we feel like we are breathing out. One long sigh.
Enjoy the videos. Memphis.
Eloise and her friend cook up a chocolate storm in the new kitchen and demonstrate how to chop a bar in two.
The kids secretly film their late night chat with my Dad and get caught on camera themselves murdering an innocent fly.
A peak at Vonetta's new kitchen 'horta'. My, how does her garden grow!
