I’m not sure if I have any more words of wisdom about moving into a new house than about moving out. The whole thing is just hard work.
The new house has gone from looking like it’s a storage facility to looking like it’s been hit by a hurricane. And that’s definitely an improvement! (See photo below.)
But it’s not all bad. (See photo below.)
I’m not allowed to appear at the churches to which I’ve been assigned until the 1st of September, so this morning I went to the local Anglican church. The churchwardens, R and B were very friendly and introduced me to a number of people and then I found myself part of the parish announcements.
The area is quite attractive and the people are very friendly. Twice over the last few days we’ve had shop assistants approach us and ask if they could help! I’m also finding that people are asking about my American accent and that it’s helping to start conversations.
I’m still on dial-up, though, and won’t get broadband sorted for probably another two weeks or so.
