New house


Eventually, after a horrible 6 months, we got the keys to our new house! Completion date coincided with probably the busiest date of my working calendar - the launch of Architecture Week. I had to be in the Centre at 7am to be interviewed for BBC Radio Bristol, to work all that day including a private view of our Architecture Week exhibition until 8pm. Somewhere during that day Ben and I managed to sneak out for an hour to collect our keys and take a first look round our new house. It was at the same time exciting, intimidating and a massive relief.

I got horribly drunk at work and was not very helpful when Mum picked me up from work and drove me to the new house where we opened a bottle of bubbly and got even more drunk in the garden, before heading back to Clevedon where Ben's parents laughed at my tipsiness.

Saturday morning we were on the road by 7am as we had to pick up our plants from Simon and Nancy, who had been plant-sitting them, by 8am. Then the removal men were moving us into our new house at 9am.

They were done by 1pm and it was a scorching hot day. Charlie and Chris brought round some lunch for us and we ate in the lovely big garden of our new house. It was amazing. I made a promise that I would never forget the feeling of excitement and relief that I felt that first day.
