Starting to feel like home!


It’s been a little over two weeks now since we have moved and it is starting to feel like home.  Almost all our boxes are unpacked, just a few left … struggling to find the motivation!  The house feels very comfortable and really “lives” well if you know what I mean!

We bought our clothes line last weekend and hopefully that will be installed this coming weekend…I hate having to use the clothes dryer, so expensive and not always the right option!

Tonks is home, poor puppy is a little bit frazzled today.  She’s been with two other dogs for the past year or so, so being on her own is going to take a bit of getting used to.  She’ll settle eventually, I can hear her crying now…poor thing.

Well, I suppose I’d better get going and do some cleaning and more organising.  Will take some photos later and pop up here…rooms with furniture in it, who would have thought!!!! 🙂

We have a completed house!


WOW, so much has happened since we took possession of the house!

Today we have the laminate floor boards being finished, the carpet being laid and the fence being done.  Such excitement!  It’s all coming together nicely!  We  had a small hic-up yesterday with the laminate floor boards.  We originally bought our boards back in May 09 and we got the people who sold us the flooring to measure off the plans for how much we would need…mmmm, seems they miscalculated by 5 boxes worth!  And of course that flooring type and colour are no longer made!  So after a mad dash to the floor board people I’ve been able to get some boards that are similar that will be put into the pantry and hopefully we won’t see too much of a difference.  It seems that some things just have to go wrong!  (And after all of that running around, they were able to not use the boxes that I bought yesterday…hope I can get a refund!)

Family Room flooring + Emma!
