Excuse me going AWOL!
What can I say except that the last project (BH) nearly broke me and it's taken me a while to feel like myself again. What have I learned? Running a big project alongside being a full time mum to a toddler alongside dealing with some fun medical stuff really is a bit much for me! But you know what? I don't want to dwell on it as it's in the past and there's a far more exciting reason for me coming back to document my property life again.
Can you guess?
Just a few hours ago, we had an offer accepted on a new place in our little town in Puglia!
Whoop whoop whoop!
I say a new place, it's an old apartment that needs restoring, but what a place! It's so grand! The communal entrance stairs are all in marble. The roof terrace has wonderful views of the sea, the port and the cathedral. The sense of space is just incredible: the first room you walk into is more than 5m x 5m and the ceilings throughout are 5+metres high!

It was love at first sight and I am so, so excited about the transformation to come.
And you know, like falling in love, this probably seems a bit fast and kind of crazy to everyone else as I literally only spotted this place on the internet 2 days ago, but I just knew it was something special.
(The irony is, I only came out to stay in our house here with little man as we have rented out our house in UK and it was cheaper to fly here for a week than to find accommodation in our UK hometown! Looks like it might end up costing us quite a bit instead!)
It's going to be a long process - even completing the purchase will take much longer than normal due to some special financing we're using - so I'm not sure there'll be too much to talk about over the next months, but I was keen to share with you that a new adventure is on the horizon.
Onwards and upwards dear friends - it's going to be bellissima!
