Once again our youngest has flown the nest and we spent last Saturday helping her and her partner move into their first place together.

They have moved into a delightful little thatched cottage in the beautiful village of Bloxham which is just outside Banbury.  They are about 40 minutes away from us, near to Oxford and not too far from the Cotswolds so I can see that we will be visiting them with some regularity.

As soon as she told me the name of the cottage they were going to view "Unicorn Cottage” in Unicorn Street I just knew that she would move into it.  Mind you after seeing it I can see why they would fall in love with it.
 The little window in the lounge that looks into the kitchen.
The teeny tiny kitchen set to the side of the lounge.
The main bedroom under the beamed roof.

The tiny little courtyard garden.

Such a little sweetheart of a cottage.
Check out the tiny little window under the thatch.

I had a little wander across the road and came across this little lane

Sadly it was just to wet to do much exploring and I was not dressed in my exploration outfit but will take a good look down there next time we visit.

Fianlly after  unpacking the cars with all her worldly goods, - well not quite all her worldly goods as she will be coming back to pick up the clothes that needed washing (thank you mum) , CD’s, DVD’s and various items that she missed with her first swoop over the next few weeks, we set off dinner at one of the local pubs and they treated us to a lovely three course meal.  Thank you.

Anyway now it is just hubby and I again the plan is to move the office into her room as it is much lighter and will be better for me to create in, move the spare bedroom into the office and then start the decorating.... no rest for the wicked. Hubby can’t wait as I hand him his brushes and set the pasting table up.


  1. What a sweet little cottage.How happy must she be.It just looks beautiful.x

  2. how could ANYBODY not move into Unicorn cottage!

    At Bruce's stables there's a little white pony called Nerys who Jo took on for retirement after her 30 odd years working in a riding school. She has a long flowing mane and tail and the cheekiest face ever seen (a 35 year old mare in a yard with 7 handsome gentlemen who all flirt with her) and I call her the Little Unicorn!

  3. Hope the will be very happy in their beautiful new home. What wonderful names!
