One year in the Convent

Feb 2011

Last weekend marked a whole year since Tom and I moved into the Convent. In case you are curious, the building was converted from The Convent of Mercy nunnery into flats around the year 2000, but still retained many of its original features, including the beautiful stained glass windows and the adjoining chapel which can be hired out for special occasions. So far we've really enjoyed living in such a unique place and have had many fun parties in the Chapel (including a spooky Halloween - I'm already planning a special birthday idea for May!)

I realised I've taken quite a few similar photos from my window throughout the seasons, its nice to put them together and think of the happy times we have had here, hopefully with many more yet to come!
