Well, it's been a while since I've written here, so thought I'd send an update. The house is working out really well; much better than we'd hoped!
Mum and Paul visited last week, they had a nice couple of days travelling up near Loch Lomond, then came back to us and helped out in the garden - the pots are looking great now, and it's really spurred us on to do more out there (when we get time!)
The menagerie are settling in well, we think we'll let Ebony out soon - but she'll have to pluck up courage to come downstairs first!
Notice the new sidebar 'recent music' thing on the right - a funky addition from last.fm...
