We bought a farmhouse in The Netherlands because it had a barn screaming for conversion. It will be awesome someday. However, we first have to renovate the existing house before moving on to the (attached) barn.
Well, moving to a house in the country in The Netherlands from a maisonette in South West London is quite a culture shock. One of the biggest differences is that we now have gardening to do! Never done much more than pulling ivy from our old maisonette, so a bit of a change! 😉
I have discovered I hate watering plants, but find snipping bushes quite therapeutic (no jokes!).
Gardening (and renovation work) are a killer for nail polish…
