CONTAINER No# ONE ARRIVES.....

TODAY:

- First container arrives!
- Kids to school (back to normal)
- UNPACKING... what more can I say?

UNPACKING..... UNPACKING.... UNPACKING... UNPACKING !!!

Hopefully I can get my internet connection up and running today sometime... then I can use my own computer and post some photos! How neat will THAT be? I have missed posting photos!

I still can't get the smile off me dial..... I am hoping like hell we can sleep in our new home tonight! Time will tell.....

PHEW!!! The 1st container arrived today... we were at the house waiting... it took about 2 hours to get everything out, then we and the mover guys started undoing boxes, assembling furniture, beds etc.... it was bedlam! My FEET are killing me! And me back...

I took photos..... but the internet connection at our new house is down... so I can't use my computer... hence... NO PHOTOS YET. sooooo sorry!

Someone asked me why we didn't get all three containers today? Well we could only do one a day... they are huge! And there is no point unloading anymore than you can sort out in one day!

I am back at my Aunt's house at the moment, just had dinner, then I'm going back to continue sorting out todays lot. Tomorrow I am on my own as Stew has to return to work... so it will a longer, harder day tomorrow.

We are not sleeping at the new house tonight, it's just not possible! There is still too much to sort out.... I'm hoping tomorrow night we will.

End of Day: I"M THRILLED WITH OUR NEW HOME... IT MAY BE SMALLER, BUT IT'S GORGEOUS! Time to go back....

NSV: Bloody hell am I ever getting a good workout! Burning calories... yeah baby! nite nite.

  5. My fingers are crossed for you :-) Why are the containers arriving 3 days apart? Didn't they all leave at the same time?
