Day 248 of 365: Oh Goodness *slaps forehead*

Sooo...went to update my blog tonight since I've been taking photos all week, and then I realised....

...I packed everything that would hook any camera I have up to my laptop.

Now, I just went through the "electronics box" and couldn't find the stuff, so I must've put them in another box somewhere else.

SOoooooooo.......this blog will not be updates for awhile once I'm crap at this!

Annndd....Sky said that they won't be at our place until the beginning of December to install the phone line, so no internet for quite awhile. I'm going to go crazy. But, I shall still take photos, and will just have to do this HUGE update once we get the internet up and running.

So I guess this is "see you later" for now.

I am going to miss the internet.....

Day 247 of 365: Keeps Gettin' Better...

Went to the new place tonight to do a few things (like break down the huge amount of boxes, which I shall take a photo of tomorrow).

My brother and sister in law came by tonight to hang out and see the place for a bit. They brought delicious chocolate cup cakes from Waitrose. Mmmmm....

So what did I achieve tonight?

Well, Ian and I found old Christmas decorations that the old tenant of the house had kept, but threw them out (except for the wrapping paper). Also found what is probably mouse will need to get a trap, I think. Greaaaatttt.....

Then I unpacked a box.

Jack now has a home on the kitchen counter:

Then got out the tea towels that my Dad's fiancee got for us awhile ago....

...yay, a cat! :)

After that, I tried to put up photos on our cube shelf, but realised that we have TOO many photos. So, that will be left until we're settled in.

But, Ian is painting the bedrooms. Our bedroom is going to be purple, which I think is pretty great. :) The spare/guest/dressing room is going to have a sitting area, as well as our wardrobe and chest of drawers. I'm really getting excited about the place now. I can't wait to be in and settled though. :)

Day 246 of 365: Rub a Dub Dub

As the boys put together things (like chairs, chests of drawers, shelves, etc), I stayed in the kitchen and washed all the new things that we've bought. We're such dorks that we bought plates that match the tiling in the

The only real problem I can see is the parking situation. It's a small road, and the town is unrestricted parking, so people kept parking in front of our place. We shall see what can be done.

But met our neighbor as well....just went over to let her know that Ian would be doing the drilling. She seemed nice, and has children.

Soooo......I really didn't want to leave our house tonight...but since we don't even have a bed OR set up our account for the electricity yet, we won't spend the night until next weekend and then we're there to stay.
