New House :)

Hi all...

Long time no chat :) But as you may have figured out I have been busy relocating :) Yes I am typing to you from my new house in Beaumaris Melbourne Victoria :)

Its been a long few weeks... and I won't go into it too much but let me tell you a few of the events.

We left Exmouth on Saturday the 10th of October after selling all of our worldly possessions and leaving with just a few suitcases containing our clothes and a few precious memories.

We met our new landlords on Monday and obtained the keys to the house then went furniture shopping. We picked out our house load of furniture and the neccessary electricals (fridge/washing machine) and then had to camp out in the house and wait for the deliveries...

We got the fridge and washing machine delivered on Wednesday and the furniture arrived yesterday... in flat pack boxes. Everything is in a box! I could not believe that they delivered to us flat packed things like chests of drawers and breakfast bar stools!!! Everything is put together with allen keys - and nightmarish instructions that are in every language BUT English... and you need to have an engineering degree to be able to figure the jigsaw puzzle out! We tackled the kids beds first, then ours ... and then the dining setting and still have 1 dining room chair to go... 2 bar stools... and 4 sets of drawers! We had the best nights sleep last night in a long time ... could have just been that we were exhausted! We will see tonight?

Today we looked at each other and decided that we couldn't face another allen key... so we went shopping instead :) My new favourite passtime!! The shopping centre is HUGE :) 750M long and 4 stories high.

After living in an area with no shops for so long - I am in HEAVEN!!!

Anyway - just wanted to touch base with you all - say HI and that I will be getting back into the habit of posting on a regular basis once my home internet connection is up and running next week sometime.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs xxxxx
