The good news is that we are blissfully happy, back where we love to be, with glorious weather and since 1st September, less tourists and more beach space. Marv! The extra time gives us more pause for thought as we figure out how the space will best work for us. It also gives us a chance to propel ourselves even closer to middle age as we spend our weekends comparing toilets and kitchen taps.
It doesn't seem to matter that the walls are peeling or that we're eating from enamel camping plates. Our neighbours have started saying hello and we had an official housewarming over the weekend and showed off our little project with pride. It feels like home. And that feels good.
