We have been in our new home for about 3 weeks now and are beginning to settle in a little. There is still loads to do, more boxes to unpack, decisions on where to place things to make, and and urgent need for more decluttering especially in the book department! All of this has meant that I haven't been out with my 'big' camera very much. Instead I have been taking opportunistic shots with my iPhone . In particular I have been taking sunrise shots from my bedroom window
The template here comes from the Project Life app which I am enjoying playing with as I make an effort to record our first year in Salisbury. I want to document the changes in our lives. We are walking more, for example, on an every day basis rather than having to take the car to get anywhere
Although we lived in lovely country before the walks directly from the house weren't that great, with a lot of shady lanes and gloomy woods when, in winter you want any sunshine that's going. So our first Sunday walk through town was a great success
While we are loving all this it does take time to settle in and begin to feel 'at home'. What is helping is small corners of the house that give a respite from the chaos of the rest and a sense of purpose to some of my outings. I captured this on Tuesday
As you can see I am somewhat addicted to using the waterloque and brushstrokes apps at the moment!
It will take a while to feel fully at home here - after all 33 years was a long time. But I see little glimmers as I place loved pieces of furniture and other objects in their new positions and think - yes that looks right! See you all soon.
