It seems like only yesterday we moved, but in reality, it has been almost 7 months, the bungalow is finally starting to feel like home. Although as I said the other day we are still waiting for a shower to be fitted.
Moving can be hard, there is the packing, booking the removal company, making sure everything fits into your new home (our bedroom furniture only just did). Then once you are settled you need to get everything as you want it, which seems like it often takes forever.
At this point we are pretty much sorted inside, our pictures are up on the walls and trinkets are out around the rooms, however, the garden does need some work. While we recently got a shed a lot of the outside items we had, just weren't worth bring with us and ended up at the tip, so this spring I really want to think about getting some new items for the garden and these are just a few ideas I'm pondering.
La Hacienda Sakura Fireplace – £85
I have long fancied some sort of firepit or chiminea for the garden, though I have always been put off by the price. However, they are really coming down in cost and with this one being just 45cm in width and depth and 60cm in height; it isn't going to take up too much room either.
Bamburgh Charcoal Outdoor Wall Light – £48.75
We have a light outside the back door, which is great for when we let Sal out after dark. However, we don't have one out the front and I really think we could do with one and this beauty from Laura Ashley is perhaps one of the nicest, I have come across and when it comes to cost it doesn't break the bank.
Black Wooden Beaded Wind Chime – £9.99
I would absolutely love a wind chime we could have in the garden, we did buy one not long after we moved in, but wow it was loud and as such we have moved it inside to not disturb the neighbours. This one comes from TK Maxx and I think the fact it is wooden, may well help tone down the noise a little.
John Lewis Croft Collection Islay Garden Rocking Chair – £399
One thing we didn't bring with us from the old place was the garden furniture, it had seen better days and despite our effects in trying to resurrect it, it wasn't to be. While we will probably end up with a bistro set, I definitely love the idea of a garden rocking chair.
So that is a few ideas I am thinking over for the garden, this year, what do you think of them, do any catch your eye?
