I'm alive!

{warning – looooong post!, sorry}

Hey everyone,

Just popping in to confirm that I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth!

We moved house on Friday, and up until then I have been living in a world of boxes, packing tape and bubble wrap. Then, of course, came the extensive cleaning session, where every inch of the house needed to be cleaned before we handed in the keys. It was a teeny bit stressful and a whole lot exhausting! I can safely say that I never want to see a pair of marigolds ever again!

Despite our best efforts, we were running a bit behind schedule on Thursday night, and it was all getting a ickle bit too much for me, so I must admit I had a little mini-pity party and a few tears may have been shed!. But thankfully our super wonderful friends M & H came to help up whip round the house and finish the cleaning. Thank you soo much you two! ♥ We got out before midnight and stayed at their’s for a good nights sleep. I swear I don’t even remember climbing into bed, I must have hit the pillow and konked out! (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!)

Friday morning came round fast, and the movers arrived at 8.10am, and packed two vans, working solidly until 1.20pm. Poor Miya was not impressed that she was locked in the bathroom whilst everyone else had freedom to roam in and out of the house!! How rude! What had she done to deserve this prison sentence?!

After a quick bacon sandwich and another whip round with the hoover, we said out good byes to the house that we have lived in for over 2 years. I have to admit, its a bit weird, because our friends Jer and Sar are going to be renting that house now, so it wasn’t really a goodbye for real. Its definitely going to be bizarre when we go back there and none of our stuff is there, but its full of their stuff. ♥

Miya did not enjoy the trip. She never does very well on car journeys, so as soon as we arrived, we had to do a little clean up job. Poor baby! Once again, she found herself in a prison cell, safely out of harms way. This time she didn’t do any complaining. I guess she was just relieved that she wasn’t on the way to the vets! Anything is better than being in the car in any case!

Unloading took so much longer. Probably because they guys were all tired, or maybe it just seemed longer for me because during the loading process, I was kept busy cleaning, but being pregnant meant that I wasn’t lifting any boxes out of the van, so I had the (freezing cold) job of standing outside by the vans, and directing which rooms the boxes should go into.

We were finished about 4.30ish, and as the movers drove off, we turned around to enter into OUR first house!

So Very Happy.
So very very exhausted…

But I was in auto-pilot. I started unpacking the kitchen. I am NOTHING without my food, so I knew that what ever happened, I needed to get the kitchen sorted first! Craig on the other hand….started unpacking the living room, and made the mistake (or some may say ‘sneaky decision’) of starting with the TV and the Xbox. Needless to say, he didn’t get any further than that!! HAHA!

On Friday night I was a bit concerned with how Miya would take to this new house, but she snuggled up between our legs on the bed and seemed to approve of this new place that we had bought for her to explore. ♥ yeay!

Yesterday morning, we woke up in OUR house, and got breakfast in OUR kitchen, sat on OUR sofa in OUR living room….(this really isn’t getting old for me, but I promise, i’ll stop… 😀 …soon). After a short rest, we reached for the box-cutter again to unload some more boxes.

The only problem is that we are making the garage into a craft room, and it needs a little work before i’ll get all set up. This means of course that about 90% of the boxes downstairs are for the craft room and cannot be unpacked or moved really until the garage is ready. Grr! BUT, this does mean that we will be motivated to get the craft room into action as soon as possible! Yipppppeeeeeeee! ♥ I can’t wait!

In the afternoon, we decided that we simply HAD to go buy a mobile broadband connection. We ordered the internet ages ago, but they said it wouldn’t get installed until 8th Jan!!! WHAT?!?!?! Geez! Whilst walking around town, I realised how soon it is until Christmas! Argh!! I still have LOADS of presents to buy, and haven’t even bought a single Christmas card, never mind start writing any! Whooops! But after a big squishy hug from Craigy, the panic soon melted away and reality quickly set in. Even if I dont get to write any Christmas cards, even if Craig and I don’t get any presents for each other, even if we end up eating beans on toast for Christmas dinner….we will be able to sit around a twinkling Christmas tree on Christmas morning, in OUR house! We have been saving, and saving, and saving, for SOOOO LOOOOONG, this is really a dream come true! And what better Christmas present than having your own house, ready for the start of a new adventure. These next few months will be an exciting prologue to the new chapter in our lives, when little baby Oman arrives. I simply can’t wait! ♥
