I have just spent half an hour trying to upload some photos to my blog, without success. I think this may have something to do with the fact that it is so long since I posted, that I have forgotten how to do it!
As the photos were only of various parts of the house looking very bare and others beginning to fill up with large packing boxes, I don't think you have missed much.
I don't have a completion date yet for the sale of my house and the purchase of my flat, but hate leaving things till the last minute and am determined to be prepared.
After the suddenness and speed with which this moving business began back in April, and frequent letters and phone calls from house agents and solicitors, the past two or three weeks have been very quiet so I hope they are all busily moving things along. The recent heatwave was probably a blessing in disguise as it made me stop doing anything for a few days (I love summer but am useless when it is very hot) so I hibernated and had a break from sorting, packing and gardening, all of which has steadily been going on for weeks. I did get the back lawn cut yesterday and have packed two more boxes today.
I feel I am 'on schedule' so that when I do get the green light, there will be no need to panic. I can't wait to get moved in, unpack all my toys (fabric, threads, books, craft stuff, etc.) and play!
I didn't get the first flat I hoped for but was lucky enough to find another just round the corner in a similar set up. It has a second bedroom too which is a bonus and is quite a bit cheaper. Very handy for Tesco's which is tastefully hidden behind lovely trees, and close to the rest of the town. I shall get quite a bit more walking in when I move - no need for lifts to the shops and I might even lose a bit of weight!
I shall return with pictures, hopefully, when I have rediscovered my computer skills.
A Short Sojourn in New Zealand part 2 - On the weekend Bev shouted me a painting workshop - Poppies. I have never done anything like this before so it was a bit of a different experience. Ever...
