Well... while there are heaps of jobs still to do around this new home of ours, most of them are ones that involve having Stew and Steve build sheds and the like.
My efforts have been concentrated on getting the inside of the house sorted.
I've finally got most things done, with just the sewing room to go!
That is my job today. I hope to have it finished by the end of the day. Fingers crossed I will find the few 'missing' things in that room too.
We have a garden waste 'bin' arriving today. It will be somewhere to put all the grass clippings and so on. Everything is slowly coming together. It won't be long now before we will be truly settled in. *smiles*
We are supposed to have wet weather for the rest of the week, so if it's raining at 8 am this morning, I will be driving the kids to school...
*sigh*... that means getting dressed early!
Shame I can't just jump in the car in me pj's! But knowing my luck and Murphy's Law, I'd get a flat tyre and end up on the side of the road in me pj's!
Nah, not a good idea. Clothes. I will wear 'em.
OOOOh! I just remembered... the bedside drawer for the spare bedroom is being delivered today too.
10.22 am: I did end up taking the kids to school. Hopefully Griffin has a better day today. He's really struggling to adjust, he always has been like that.
He doesn't take big changes too well. I can remember when he went to Kindy, he used to cry and vomit EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. For 2 years! And he did the same at school till he was 5 and a half.
I HAD LOST ME MARBLES .....
ABOVE: I am making some progress. I have got most of the stuff that doesn't belong in there out... it's piled up in the hallway waiting to be put away.
Our garden waste bag has arrived, they put it in exactly the same place the previous owners had it.
The bedside drawer will be here within the hour... so the day is going great.
ABOVE: How's that for a perfect match to the bed! I'm very happy with it. Now I need to find or make a little 'doilie' for it, and get a bedside lamp.
Right, back to the sewing room...
11.18 am: And I'm taking a break from the sewing room. It's quite daunting looking at 13 boxes waiting to be unpacked!
I will have to drag them all out into the hallway, and just do one box at a time, sorting out where everything will go slowly. It's awesome that there's a double wardrobe to put stuff in as well as the shelving.
But OH man, I'm already tired.
ABOVE: EVERY freakin' time I turn around, I run into a dog! So, I got mad and yelled at them. Poor girls. They took themselves off to their bed in the garage!
ABOVE: Well, it's 2.15 pm and the room has all it's furniture in it. I was surprised I managed to fit in my BIG Horn Cutting Table in there too.
ABOVE: Now to unpack the boxes! But I'm taking another break. It was bloody hard getting that table in there I can tell ya.
ABOVE: The 'business end' of the room.
Ha ha! I lay down on the couch at 4 pm and fell asleep till 6! So no more work done on the sewing room today.
I will continue with it tomorrow.
Winding down... watching some TV. Then bedtime a bit later.
