Living in the Cottage

Slowly, over the last few weeks, we have been pouring "the quart" of our possessions from the house into "the pint" of the space that is the cottage.

Even putting van-loads into store, we are still struggling to find room for all our stuff and the cool emptiness of the finished cottage has given way to the busy muddle of our daily lives.

We've managed to keep one or two corners of tranquillity, but as for the rest....

The cottage is only 300 yards from the house, yet when we relax on the terrace after another packing case-filled morning, this peaceful, tree-shaded, sunny corner feels so different it's as if we've come away on holiday.
