On this date last year, I was frantically unpacking moving boxes looking for essentials as 14 people arrived for a birthday lunch. Today just 3 of us had a quieter celebration.
That means we have been here a whole year. There's still things in boxes, there's still things to organise. But the garden is taking shape, and we are gradually settling in. I found the tablecloths last week! (Although didn't manage to put one on the table for lunch today.)
