Does the title give away why I have been so quiet lately? :-)
Yup, we finally moved on Friday 11th March. It seemed to take forever to finalise our move. The Sunday before we moved, I read an email from the solicitor who took over when mine went on holiday who asked if we wanted to move on 11th. We jumped at it. Of course, we then had to confirm a removal firm, exchange and pack up most of the house in 4 days - such fun.
I AM NEVER MOVING AGAIN - unless I am rich and someone else is packing the house up for me!!!!!
The removal men came at 8am and left the new house at 5.45pm. It went on forever.
The new house remains as Grotville. It was dirty and uckky when we moved in - the ex owner even left all her dog poo in the back garden - still to be cleaned up as she also filled up ALL the wheelie bins (there are 3) so I have no where to put it. We FINALLY get a bin emptied tomorrow so then I shall be in the garden as soon as possible trying to put it right.
Both Mums and my Dad helped massively with packing up the old house. Indeed I couldn't have done it with out them. Then more importantly my parents have REALLY helped with settling us into the new house -I think we wore H's Mum out!!!
On the Sat morning friends came up from down South and spent 2/3 days cleaning and decorating. We managed to clean the kitchen - the house fridge stopped working on the Sun morning, and I found out tonight that both ovens don't work. My fridge is locked in the garage (Dad has the key!) and I am feeling very frustrated.
Anyway onto nicer things, what will be our new bedroom has had the built in wardrobes removed, the carpet ripped up and the wallpaper stripped. Then My Dad and D have started putting up lining paper and the paint should be painted tomorrow. So exciting.
More importantly (to me) is that D redecorated what will be my craft room. I love it.
I still can't understand why H didn't want it in the new bedroom....................
Now once I have painted the ceiling with the glitter paint I can start unpacking all my bits.
