First Week in the Life of the Common House

The common house is now complete. We have all been so excited about using it that this post is a little late! Mainly photos - but I think they will give the full picture.

The first actual meal was an impromptu picnic for a hungry boy. 

But our first proper communal meal happened to coincide with Halloween, so we decided to make the most of it

I think I am correct in saying that it was a combined effort from various people who all mucked in when and where they could.

The children helped to create the decorations.
Everyone else helped create the atmosphere.

And whilst the room was warm enough, we did need to check that the woodburning stove actually worked!

Some of the children had fun outside playing "What time is it Mr Wolf" under the covered walkway..

whilst others preferred the warmth of inside.
