The move went very smoothly and it didn’t rain! The removal guys were great – until they put a dent in our fridge and gouged a hole in the wall when bringing the fridge in the house. Not happy about that, just one of those things I guess; other than that they were good guys, very helpful.
We have such a lot of furniture and it made me realize just how much when I saw it all packed up in the wagon – do we own all that stuff? Gotta get rid of some! When we are settled, we must have a garage sale.
We’ve been madly unpacking since we moved in just over a week ago now, and the place is starting to take shape with all our “stuff” round us. Think we’ve been trying to get it all done too quickly, as we have both been feeling physically sick with exhaustion and aching limbs. Seriously – my hubby cut his finger quite badly due to lack of concentration when he was opening one of the boxes with a knife; he is usually so careful. He slept for 4 hours the other afternoon because his body just wouldn’t work!
Our dog Poppy has been quite confused with the goings-on, but now, after a week, she seems more settled than we are! As long as she has her mom and dad and some of her favorite toys, she’s happy!
I’m sure she would be content in a tent as long as we were with her; sometimes I wish our lives were that simple!
We have a fairly large yard, which at the moment, is devoid of all plants – only grass, and although it means a lot of work, I’m glad, because I have a blank canvas to work on – I can start from scratch and have it exactly the way I want it.
A veggie patch is the first thing I want to get cracking on; love those home-grown veggies!
These guys are our first visitors – the laughing kookaburra, and I’m elated that they flew down to check us out.
As you know, one of the reasons I loved our other place so much was because of the abundance of wildlife and native birds and the colorful parrots, so being visited already by these guys has lifted my heart. The signs are good.
I haven’t walked along the beach yet so there might be more surprises in store for me – sea eagles perhaps, or even dolphins? Will get down there asap and take more pics.
So looking back to the day we moved, Friday the 13th turned out fine – no catastrophes to relate to you, and things are settling down and getting back to some kind of normality in the Taylor household.
It’s good to be back online again, I was having withdrawals after a week without the internet! Makes me wonder how we managed before it became so much a part of our lives.
