We’ve finally moved in!

At last! Our bedroom is now habitable. New duvet cover from Ikea, in case you were wondering. Artwork by Sarah Carrington.

Tonight will be our first night in the new house. Since Tuesday evening we’ve been sleeping next door in our holiday cottage, while during the day we’ve been setting up the house. We felt that it was much kinder on ourselves and on the cats.

This evening, having unpacked a bit more, dealt with a mountain of boxes, and having hung a few paintings — including the two that you can see above our bed, which are by top Scottish artist, and good friend of Jane, Sarah Carrington — we went over to the cottage, collected my bag, the cats, and the digital TV receiver. What more do you need in life?!

Thanks to everyone who has sent messages of best wishes for our moving in. Well, we’re feeling them now. Now that we have moved in! Finally.
