A New Start

 
There are 4 days until my partner and I move into our first home.  We have been together almost four years and this will be the first time we have lived together.  To say I am excited is an understatement.

I picked up the key on Friday.


Right now there are lots of things to think about and lots of lists, plans and questions swimming around in my head.  Where should the furniture go?  Where are we going to install a cat door?  And a clothes line because for some reason there isn't one already?  How much will it cost to get more power outlets installed because there's only one single one in each room?  Don't forget to ring the bank tomorrow to sort out loan stuff.  Remember to look into getting the house bug sprayed to keep those spiders away.  I think we may need to buy another set of plates.  What about this and that and those things?  I can see my new few months are going to be filled with little housey type things as we get things organised, set up, installed, bought and arranged.

I'm looking forward to sharing some photos of the rooms all bare and then slowly coming together as we begin to settle in to our nest.

Woah, heaps of things to do! Exciting though. We're currently planning a kitchen reno, and that's more than enough headaches for us! xx

That sounds like a whole heap of fun to me (apart from speaking to the bank). The first thing we did was put in a clothes line, did it during the settlement period actually with the then-still owners permission, of course. There was room in an out of the way spot and this was Sydney so couldn't work out why they'd opt for the dryer every time.

Enjoy yourself.
