Well settlement went through without a hitch today.
OURS, ALL OURS!
So why do we feel a bit flat and unexcited? Maybe because we now see how much work we have to do lifting and carrying and plonking and then lifting and carrying and plonking after driving for 15 minutes. Two of our helpers have pulled out and that is going to make a big difference to our work load. I haven't finished packing yet. Nathan hasn't even started. Plus we have to clean the new (old) house end to end - it hasn't even had a decent vacuuming. When we leave this rental property we are expected to clean it thoroughly. The place we are moving to will be in the same state this one was. Yucky.
Oh well. It will be good. We will be happy there I am pretty sure, we just have to get there yet! And the power has to be put on too. It didn't seem to be working but we only tried one light.
Nathan wants to move the computers there ASAP, despite not having cable and stuff. This means I will probably be offline by noon on Saturday our time (about midnight Friday night UK time and Friday evening in the US) until Wednesday if the cable guy comes. It isn't as if we won't be up here a lot. Maybe we can plug the laptop into the cable modem. Yeah.
I'll leave you with a tempting pic - the back gate of Tarndwarncoort
Wish me luck and I'll talk to you
