Moving In

Moving Day (Wednesday 10th) was filled with anticipation and frustration. Everything was tied up at our end by 9am but we didn't hear from the other party until 2pm!
Luckily we had the use of the Lodge truck and had already finished loading it up with the first load when we got the call saying we could come and collect the keys.

Dave came up to help with the move and even Esmee helped.

Of course no first home is complete without the customary being carried over the threshold!

Esmee had heaps of fun setting up her new room while i put boxes in rooms as the guys loaded and unloaded the truck with our boxes and furniture. Pam came and helped do a quick clean (the new house was very clean to start with!) as we put in the big furniture and then Henny and Angelina surprised us by showing up on Thursday morning.

All of this happened in a very quick timeframe so i may be a bit fuzzy on details. Anyway we got to cleaning and unpacking most of the essentials and enjoying ourselves.
And shifting the firewood to the great covered alcove at the side of the house - Xander got the first maintenance job and he loved it!

Pam put on lunch on the first day and my friend Karina cooked us a beautiful dinner on our first night - which we enjoyed alfresco on our deck!

Thanks for all the help! Xander was entertained for a whole day at Rebecca's which was fabulous, so thanks for that too.

Now we have the monster job of unpacking the rest of the boxes, sorting out where to put everything and then deciding things like new lounge suite, t.v, paint or wall paper, much fun!
