new house

moving house again. finally moving in a house we hope to call home for a few months … i have lots of ideas and plans for this year but right now it is time for me (for us) to settle a bit, breathe deeply, recover from the short but exhausting time in the (toxic) banana house.

first evening in the new house … i felt somehow lost here. strange. such a big house. the living room and kitchen area is as big as the entire banana house. after having lived in one room or a tent most of the last 8 months now it seemed to be too much house for the two of us.

next morning, as usual, everything became better. we unpacked our boxes, arranged mondenkind’s room first, and after having cleaned the kitchen and filled it with all our delicious stuff i started to enjoy our new home.

-maybe it is a house to grow in. lots of open space for lots of interesting things to evolve.

– we have a lot of cupboards and wardrobe to store our bits and bobs. and there is a seperate room for the mondenkind … where she can have all her stuff on the floor. and lots of empty space for me.
-we have many many many windows to let the sun in. and the house is situated two gardens higher than the banana house which gives us much more sun and light and warmth now in wintertime.
– we have amazing views: la gomera, the sea, the sky, the mountains – wow!
– we have a roof terrace! very sunny & very private … after having works and lots of working people in and around my house for weeks now, a bit of privacy to just lay down in the sun, naked, is such a delight!

yay, i love this place and i am full of gratitude!
