I remember the pleasure and excitement all those years ago when we moved into our first flat. Begging, borrowing and almost stealing the furniture needed to furnish it. 2nd hand this, 5th hand that.
16 properties later, both here and abroad, the excitement hasn’t diminished.
The difference now is there’s a bit more cash floating around and that most things can now be sourced flat packed.
The first of many deliveries arrived today that will be transported to the new pad in Portugal.
We are still excited at the prospect of setting up home again even though we have less teeth, have to sit down to put our socks on and need a refreshing cup of tea and a gingernut every 1/2 hour or so.
