We had our first night in our new home last night and I slept really well! It's 7.20 and I'm already up - and it's Saturday. Those who know me know I am not a morning person at the best of times and weekends are for those precious sleep ins. But not today!
There are boxes everywhere. To be expected I'm sure. Yesterday, in between bringing loads from my Dad's house and my other halves house, going to buy a new fridge because my fridge was about 3cm too tall for the fridge recess (!!), and buying an entertainment unit we walked past when looking for a fridge and decided was just what we were after, I managed to unpack six boxes of kitchen stuff. Found the plates and bowls and cutlery. Gonna be needing those! I also did that first big food shop which always seems to come to some obsenely large amount of money.
Our meow has sniffed almost every reachable square centimetre of the house and is starting to settle. She was quite paranoid until my stuff from storage came and she could smell her Mummy on them. She has been out exploring and come back in again of her own accord and we are getting a cat door put in this week.
Today's plans involve couch and bbq shopping. Tomoorow's is bookcase shopping. We are starting to feel broke already! Lots and lots of box unpacking and a couple more loads from our previous abodes.
It's going to be a busy weekend!
