We Have Keys!

P collected the keys on Friday and has spent the past couple of days ferrying boxes and small items of furniture up to the house.  Thank goodness it is only around the corner from here.

I have been very frustrated being confined to the sofa here but as I am no longer in pain and the wound doesn't appear to have been bleeding  I asked him to drive me up there to take a look around.

I took a few photos to remind myself of room sizes and configuration etc so thought you may like to see some.  Excuse the mess. 










(That is a waterproof TV on the wall at the end of the bath 😶)

  2. Wow, that is something else. Looks like it was well worth the wait and the price. I presume it is a converted church. The windows are gorgeous, so is the bathroom!!

    When's the first sleep there?

    1. Yes, it used to be a Chapel. I love the windows too!
      Hoping to be in on Thursday if the local man with a van can squeeze us in.

  3. It's really lovely JayCee. You and Lord Peregrine have given yourselves a really marvellous Christmas present. I applaud the fact that you avoided the parsimonious route and instead pushed the boat out to purchase a very special property in which to see out your days. Glad to hear that your leg is healing nicely.

    1. Thank you YP. We may have left our pension savings pot pretty empty now, but I shall just enjoy my new home and not worry about it. Recent health worries have made me rethink my priories. Live for now!

  4. What a lovely house - and so unusual. Can't wait to see it once you've sorted everything out and furnished it to your taste. The windows are so special and will look spectacular when the sun shines through them. Will you need to watch your head when you stand up in the bath?
    Good to know your leg is healing, but do take care.

    1. Thank you CG.
      This may sound strange but I haven't had a bath in years. Not that I am unhygienic but I always prefer a shower. I certainly can't imagine lying in the bath and watching TV!

    1. I hopped around there for too long this morning. Now resting to ease the throbbing leg!

  7. Absolutely fantastic JayCee - you will be so happy there I'm sure. Had no idea you had found such an awesome historic property, those windows, wow! Super big kitchen. What fun it will be to decorate. Plus your very own bell tower (is there a working bell?), now that's a first, nobody I now has one of those! Giving directions to your location for visitors will be easy lol!!!!
    Good luck with the move, and hope your leg improves quickly - just take care and don't try to overdo things!

    Happy Christmas, and I just know the New Year will be a special one in your lovely new home.

    1. Thank you Mary for your lovely comments.
      Yes there is a bell but it has been securely fixed into position and cannot be rung, for safety reasons. Don't want it falling on our heads!

  8. Oh what a pretty house. I just love it! Congratulations!

  9. Congratulations! On two fronts...the wonderful new home and a healing leg. Try not to be tempted to overdo things with the leg--we often tend to overestimate our ability to get around (without consequences) when it comes to the healing process.

    Thanks for the photos. You have some grand rooms, unique features, and great light. Love that front entryway and the beautiful door. So happy for you and P. Best of luck with the rest of the move. Take care.

  11. What a wonderful new home for you. Your very own stained glass - just amazing.
    Enjoy.

  20. It's beautiful. Is there an upstairs? I guess that if there is you couldn't easily get there with your sore leg! There looks like a very small window in the roof at the front.....are there bigger ones on the other side?

    1. Hi Frances. Yes there are rooms upstairs. They all have large Velux windows so plenty of light. The two rooms beneath the bell tower also have little porthole windows in the side!

  25. Stunning! That bathroom almost makes me wish we're not replacing our bath with a walk-in shower once we find a builder who can do decent tiling.
