This was the sized truck we needed to move! Lucky that we have a big front yard, they were impressed they could park off the street!
I thought I did a good job of decluttering and re homing things we no longer needed.
But given I am still unpacking and trying to find a home for everything, I clearly did not throw enough stuff out!
My in laws like to sleep in (fair enough my FIL is still working full time) so I can only show you a few rooms, as they are still in bed! Obviously this is our bedroom, walk in robe and en suite. I have never had a walk in robe before and was impressed with how much
crap stuff I could store in there! Please note as per the pile of pictures in the corner we are yet to finish all the things on my moving in list! If I just could find a hammer I would be hanging those pictures myself (loving plaster walls v brick ones we had in Adelaide), but poor DH's shed is only 5% unpacked. I have hung things everywhere there was an existing hook, but also trying to hang my Christmas wall hangings up.
This is the lounge room, recently abandoned by our boys to eat breakfast -hence recliners still reclined and quilts in action...they are now back in there with full tummies, watching cartoons under their quilts, waiting for Pop to get up and play football!
Can you see my lovely "new" oak cabinet, full of quilts! I am very pleased with this Gumtree purchase, it was a bargain and I will be on the hunt for something similar. Because....
...this is my sewing "room", the back half of the lounge room! And as you can see still half unpacked. The reason it is half unpacked is that
a) we only installed the bookcase yesterday (it is so big DH has to secure it to the wall first) and there were books and magazines in some boxes
b) the kitchen dresser I was using to display and store sewing items on is now in the kitchen (duh!) and
c) well I have no storage!
Yes, I let DH (formally primary breadwinner, now sole breadwinner) use the previous owners custom built sewing room....as his office! Did I ever mention that DH works from home full time? Yep, well the downside of that is that he needs his own room full time. The upside is that his boss doesn't care where he lives and hence we have moved back to my home town, the town where we met : ) and where all my family still live AND which is only 3 hours from his family v an 8 hour drive from Adelaide.
I have been sewing, but its all packed away now that my in laws are visiting. But in order to do any more sewing (and find anything) I need to buy/acquire some storage system/furniture.
So there you have it, a quarter view of my new house and all the reason I haven't been blogging!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
