We’ve been cleaning and tidying up our house,┬ápreparing for photos to be taken of it (we’re moving soon). After we’d done all the tidying up the agent called to postpone; given the rainy weather he thought it would be better to wait until a sunny day to show the house off at its best.

Today I’m grateful for our lovely bright, clean house. It’s funny how you live with things being messy, or cobwebs in the corners of the windows outside, or things that need patching up, and then when you go to move you get it all looking nice for someone else. So I am glad that we’ve taken a moment to actually appreciate how pleasing it is to live in a house when everything is just as it should be.
