Today is a year to the day since we moved out of London into our new house in Hadleigh, a market town in Suffolk.
We moved in on a gloriously sunny day, with the garden overgrown with a profusion of roses.
It’s been a year of change: new schools, new jobs, new pace of life. We’ve acquired our first lawnmower, and grappled with the elderly pre-war Aga, which is rather set in its ways.
But we’ve had such a lovely year adapting to the new place, seeing more of the grandparents, picking up with old friends and starting to get to know new people.
We do miss our friends from London and Stoke Newington, but try to persuade them to come and visit us here!
Today it was sunny all over again, and I got the chance to potter round visiting the beautiful “Hidden Gardens of Hadleigh” in aid of the local church, St Mary’s, before coming back to enjoy our own (distinctly less tidy) garden with the whole family.
Here’s to many more years in Suffolk. Hopefully at some stage I may even finish unpacking all the boxes…
