Well, we have now been in the new house a week. I have finally managed to empty most of the boxes. I have managed to lose the ones with our pictures/photos in at the moment. I think it must be buried in the garage by mistake.
It’s lovely to have so much space after being cooped up in my little house, there’s a place for everything, and it seems we had way more ‘stuff’ than we thought we had… Evil cat joined us at the weekend (after a sabbatical at my parents) and it seems there are a lot of places to hide here as well. The walks from here are on the doorstep and beautiful, the local pub has decent wine and a good menu (been tested three times in one week – well, it’s to get to know the locals you see…) and apart from a strange elderly neighbour that wanders up and down the street with a glass of wine in his hand and a look of hopefulness that you may engage in conversation with him, it’s a perfect place for us. (Yes, I know I will probably be found out with him a couple of nights a week soon).
The pic btw is the castle that is about 3 mins walk, up a footpath by our garden…
I also have only 1.5 days work left at my current job! (tomorrow and Friday morning) And I still have about 20 items on my ‘to do before you leave’ list! Including a bloody seminar on ‘networking’ tomorrow. Another ‘wing it as you go along’ special from me!
We don’t have broadband til the weekend, so I have not been able to upload lots of pics on Flickr or Blip much, this is also the first evening that I have got near the mac.
This week I have my leaving ‘do’ (jointly with another leave’ee) on Thursday night, we have Stu’s cousin and his family coming for the weekend, then I have a week off before starting my new job (and yes, I am quietly crapping myself).
A brief blog post to update my two readers with. Rest assured that I will be a tad more interesting (hopefully) with my next blog post….
