Where we live now


This is our new home, not all of it of course, our apartment has the curved balcony and the double windows either side on the top floor.


The girl who loves glass and chrome houses has turned and so far is very happy living in a grade 2 listed building that was built around 1850 as a spa hotel, has been a college and is now a collection of apartments round a central atrium.  We are the windows at the top with the Juliet balcony in the middle.


We are on the edge of the town,  10 minutes walk to the shops and railway station, yet we step out of the front door and cross the road to the moors.  It couldn't be better, we have communal gardens with furniture and BBQ, underground parking behind electric gates and best of all our very own balcony off the lounge.  The views are stunning and we have taken our coffee outside most days.


Lots to do inside, which is why I'm not showing you yet but our bedroom is a haven of calm and many boxes have been unpacked.  Mr FF has set up my computer on a garden table for now, we are getting there, life seems to be returning to normal albeit in a very different way.

  2. Congratulations Jenny! I didn't realise that you had actually found somewhere to buy, I assumed you were just renting. Quick work! But where are you living? Clues please!!

  3. What a beautiful building. Quite a change from your old place, style-wise, but a happy one, judging by the sound of your post. Best of luck in your new home, Jenny, hope you'll both be very happy x
