Well it's been a madly busy few weeks. As well as the removal we had an intruder break into our old home in the middle of the night a couple of nights before we moved, so that's still being dealt with by the police, and on Friday there it was Jamie's 40th birthday! So it's been chaos trying to organise and stay on top of everything.
However that's us now in the new house and it is so unbelievably nice, I feel like I'm living in a holiday cottage! We're still waiting on another couple of bookcases to arrive and when they do, that will be all of our books out of boxes onto shelves for the first time ever! Then I can fulfill my geeky dream of alphabetically arranging all of my poetry books and never lose a poetry book again!
One thing I'm loving is our Charles Rennie MacKintosh rose design glass door. I've always loved Rennie MacKintosh and Art Nouveau. I've already managed to pick up a couple of lovely framed Mackintosh prints from local charity shops.

thanks titus, jamie has far more books than I do, I reckon he should be doing a major clear-out!!!

It's great, that holiday cottage feeling. For me it's usually because stuff is packed away - so there's no disorder.

I've been collecting poetry books for years, too. Much to my delight, someone's been sticking loads of rare books on a local charity bookstall -the likes of Barry MacSweeney and Tom Pickard- so I've been dropping in on it whenever I get the chance!

nice one, dominic! I have a Barry MacSweeney collected or it might be a selected somewhere, I dip into it now and again.
