getting settled

Slowly getting settled in over here and getting used to waking up at 5am (ouch!) and driving an hour to work. We are loving our new house so much so the early mornings and long drive are totally worth it :)
At 4am today I was woken by the sound of howling in the distance at which point I grabbed for my phone and quickly googled wolves in the area and sure enough there have been plenty of wolf sighting nearby!

Oh, November. The worst month of the year. Every year when the clocks go back it takes me at least a month to get back into the swing of things and this year it's worse than ever. November this time has floored me! I'm in bed by 9.30 at the latest which I hate as I'm a bit of a night owl and especially because with the house move I need energy but so far I have not mustered up any therefore moving has been super slow!
We officially move in this weekend although we are still without a dishwasher, cooker and internet so neither of us are keen to move until those 3 essentials are sorted, but I'm well aware than we need to get our arse's in gear before the snow starts to fall (thankfully it's late this year)
I'm slightly sad to be saying goodbye to out little basement bunker after 3 really happy (and cheap) years although I will not miss the snow half way up the windows! Instead we have a wonderful view(see above pics) over the treetops (which seems to change every single time I look out of the window!)
The other pic is our 5 window living room (another great thing after living in the basement bunker!) which really needs a lick of paint and that hideous light removing but apart from that we are good to go :)
