The Beginning

The Beginning
Our House

Another step closer!

Things do feel that they are moving too slowly but we are nearing completion (of inside anyway!)  We have no heating but do have a hot shower so we spent most of our 2 week October break there finishing off lots of little bits and pieces and enjoying the mixed weather!

We did a bit of painting, sealed and grouted floors, put up curtain rails, installed the cooker hood and showers and even attached some door knobs!

The first few days were lovely and we got out on the bikes to explore some of the area.  We discovered Cullen House which is an old mansion which has been converted into apartments.  The grounds are open to walk through a couple of times a week.  They were beautiful with the leaves all beginning to change colour and nice and flat for the bikes! There is also a church which dates back to the 11th century within the grounds.  The boys enjoyed finding out how old the stones were and figuring out what the symbols meant! The boys also had a few circuits on the
BMX track for the first time which is just 5 minutes away from the house.  I now know where to find them when they get a bit of independence!

A trip to the Macduff Aquarium is always on our list of places to visit and Miles was even lucky enough to win a shark in a raffle!

We had our first visitors some of whom got soaked and some enjoyed the fantastic October sunshine!  Miles and Zack both enjoyed showing their friends all their favourite places, crabbing and playing in the sea.
