Huisje, boompje, beestje*

October 18, 2009

I’ve had a busy Sunday with my camera and some of the Twitterati want to see the new house and where I’ve recently moved to. Me and the significant other have moved in together in a newly built house in Utrecht… here’s some piccies..

The house is on a newly built development that used to be on some wasteground. We’re finally glad to be finally in  as the house was delivered 16 months late..and we’ve spent the past 2 months decorating and organising kitchen, flooring etc etc.

The area in Utrecht is called the Vogelenbuurt, which translates to the Birds Neighbourhood.

Our street name is in the pic below

Our street the Mantelmeeuwhof

Our street the Mantelmeeuwhof

This translates into English as Lesser Great Black Backed Gull Court. I think the Dutch version sounds better !!!!

I’ll post some other pictures of today’s photo excursion in my next blog !!

*This translates as Little House, Little Tree and Little Animal…it’s what the Dutch say when you move in with someone…bit like the perfect white picket fence in English !
