I thought the whole looking for a new home would be a chore. One of those jobs you don't want to do, but know you have to do. I truly thought I would have a hard time finding something that felt like home.
The little people and I have found our new home, and to receive the phone call yesterday was awesome. Another weight lifted off my shoulders. We have a view of my favourite beach on the northern beaches, and our new home is perfect for us. There is a space for me to put a little pinwheel work area. And I just ordered the table and cabinet below from Mark Tuckey.
Now we have the job of packing. There will be a box that is labeled, "shit box." In here I will place the things that I do not want to deal with at the other end. I personally do not enjoy packing, but I plan on making this fun for us. I have never used a removalist and I have always been the one to lift the fridge down and upstairs. This will be the first time I get to watch someone else do it, and not supply beer and pizza at the other end.
I am very fortunate to have great friends, and one of those friends, has given me all of her boxes for moving. With thanks I took a treat for her, (yes that is the awesome chocolate surprise in the top photograph), which Kellie from Mini Must Have, shared with me over a cup of tea. Thank you Kellie, you rock!
Today has been a really great day. It is nice to have a great day, and know that this is the beginning of my new book of my life.
Thank you for your emails and comments about my father in-law. He is still fighting. I have nothing but love for this man who holds onto his incredible amount of dignity. He showed me what a father is, and I will never forget that.
