Our Wonderful Outside Space
We have lived in a ground floor flat for 9 years with a tiny area of stones outside the patio door as our little part of the communal garden. People could walk round to their flat this way as well as complete strangers having a walk. It had a beautiful view over our local park and was right by a stream. When it was just me and B it was lovely (though never quite enough sun for my liking).
When we had little B at the beginning of 2013 we started to think about the space we had and the idea that we would have to start looking for somewhere bigger at some point, though it always felt strange to think of moving away from our first home together.
Finally almost 2.5 years after Little B was born we were lucky enough to move in to a house, owned by family which we are allowed to make our own, however we would like too! Eek-exciting!!
Out biggest game changer in the last 3 weeks has been the garden…….
Little B has a huge space to play, he has loved to dig, watch snails, splash in the paddling pool, kick a ball, learn to play golf with daddy, run in the sprinkler and it has been so lovely to be able to have our back doors open without the worry of him ending up in a car park or the stream, which he could have reached within a few seconds at the flat!
For me and B it has been amazing to chill in the garden in the evening, eat dinner, read, chat! I feel like we’ve spoken more in the last 3 weeks than we have in a while as we had got in the routine of eating in front of the TV in the flat and we just started to zone out a bit!
We’ve got so many ideas of how to make this house our home and I already feel happy here though the current mess/disorganisation does drive us both a little mad! Can’t wait for the holidays so I can get my teeth into it a bit more!
The best bit is so many of our Ordinary Moments are going to be built here and our family can grow and make more memories and I can’t wait.
