After all of the recent stress and strain preparing to move, we have finally moved in. It was very weird when we finally got the keys, it was exciting but also scary and a bit eerie; the house was so empty without any of the previous owners furniture in and with none of ours. We spent Friday afternoon cleaning the house to make it ready for moving our stuff in the following day. The rest of the evening was spent trying to pack up our flat (well what I hadn’t packed so far) and it was far from being fun.
Saturday morning was spent packing up our nice little transit we had rented with as much as we could and we got about 90% in thanks to my great packing and Sam’s excellent loading! We were in the house and unloaded by about 2pm, which left us free to head of to Sainsbury’s to stock up the cupboards (although we didn’t have a cooker so couldn’t really eat much). By the time we had done that we were so shattered that we went and got some dinner and then sat and watched TV on our little camping chairs (again, no sofa…).
Almost a week on and we now have a washing machine, cooker, sofa suite, bed, wardrobes and drawers! It’s almost a fully functional house with the only thing we are really lacking being the table and chairs. However, my parents are coming down on Sunday for the day so we will have those then!
