Thanks for the replies! Yes I am a bit of a lurker :-P Can never have too much knowledge and understanding through other people's experience - I'm a listener and a bit of a sponge.
She has settled in so well already - I can't believe it's only been a week and she isn't crying (she only has a little sook when she wakes up or wants us to let her in from outside, but she seems very relaxed compared to her littermate which a friend has adopted, he cries whenever he is by himself and isn't eating as well - but I am sure it'll just take him a few more days and he will be good)
I have been penning her overnight but have been doing loads of reading on crate training and that is starting tonight, so I'll start the swap from one to the other (she adapted to the pen really well, did NOT like the laundry) so I think the downsize to the crate from the pen will be good (she has the habit of waking up, going to the toilet, THEN crying to be let out thinking it's playtime - so I want to stop that as quickly as I can. She is only restricted overnight (11pm - 7am) with a 2:45am outside toilet break (the things you do in the middle of winter hey?) but she is using the pen as a toilet so it is definitely too large.
Chewing - Yes, she wants to test out everything she can get her prickly little teeth into - We have puppy teeth proofed the yard as much as we can and what is left we won't cry about if she decides it's next.
