Our New Place - Part 2

Here are more pics of our place. This is a pic of the kitchen. Looks nice or what?!? It even has a gas stove! Unlike the silly electric stove at the old place that I don't like. You can see that it gets sunny when the sun is out. Peng, note the piggy basket on the left. Thanx for sending me that! Audrey, isn't it amusing it has got green tiles??? lol

And going out the back door to the garden, this is what you see. I love the wooden deck although it rained last couple of days and we both nearly slipped on the deck when we went out cos there was moss growing on the deck. The potted plants are ours. Just beyond the deck are stones.
And to the right of the garden or backyard, is this biggish space. I've been thinking of what to plant beside the fence... We have a squirrel that comes looking for food in the garden in the mornings. See that tree by the back fence? That's where he hides his food on the ground sometimes. Beyond the back fence is unused space cos the neighbours couldn't get a building grant to build something so we have lots of birds in the mornings when it's not cold.
Best part of the day is when it's sunny and I have breakfast at the kitchen with the birds chirping outside and watching the squirrel go about his business in the garden. If only I were a woman of leisure again... so i could spend more time in the house. But on second thought, maybe not...cos it's cold in the house. we are both usually freezing by evening cos of the high ceiling and the draft from the doors.

Oh and we met the owner of the place yesterday. He said the house was built in 1805 and that's 204 years ago!!! It's an old Georgian Mansion. There's a basement, 2 floors and an attic. The son bought this floor first, then the owner bought the basement and the daughter the first floor over the years. Now they are waiting for the attic to come on the market! sigh!
