New home item

What would I chose for #myhousethismonth 's prompt of 'new home item' .

 After all, most things in the barn are pretty new, this whole house is new to us, and we have an awful lot of gorgeous house-y Christmas gifts now too. I decided to take it very literally, and share the newest things, arrived the day before!

Playing along with My House This Month

If you are familiar with this hashtag on instagram you'll know every month a new photo prompt challenge is set and people share house/design/item photos. If you aren't familiar and you are on instagram - do have a look, its great fun, there is a prize and there are A LOT of gorgeous insta accounts to discover this way too.

I'm turning mine into blog posts too, 

so  the first one was -New Year goals?

That would be these two, we have some fitness levels to achieve this year. I've got to say I am so excited at having these two to ride. Buuuuuuut the current levels of rain, crazy gale force winds and 90,000 tonnes of mud, are making it hard to get a good start. I just keep chanting - spring is coming, spring is coming.  Because it is right? even if its far far far away right now...
