It has been a week and a day since we moved into this house.
The ground still remain covered in snow.
Makes me wonder... do we have grass?!
Coming up with a name for our home was not an easy task
we came up with a long list of names from various languages
but none actually works;
the name may sound good to us
but we had to keep in mind the locals may have a problem pronouncing it
Bad enough they to have to deal with our less than common names
(wait till they see my full name!!)
Some names had been shortlisted -
Elsa's "One Tree Hill" (for the lone Scots Pine in the middle of the field)
Mr D's "SevenOaks" (for reason known only to him)
and my choice was "MiddleMarch" (for obvious reason... like, we moved in mid-March, duh!)
In the end,
we settled on OAKENSHIELD
being ardent admirers of all things Tolkien
we felt this name suited us well

Aaah... moving is such hard work.
I shall now proceed to slumber...
