Week 32: not yet…but the small things I love
We’re not quite done. I know, it seems so long. It has been. But we have had some good stuff happen. We now have a working fridge. Yay! No more “not working so well” mini-fridge. We have curtains on two of the rooms and at least privacy sheers on the front of the house. Barney is adapting to living here (even if the people coming to work on the house freak him out a lot). The bathroom we use is amazing, the living room comfortable, we just got our alarm system put in (feeling safer already) and I’m almost completely unpacked. Unfortunately, the dishwasher has been found to be blown and our washing machine decided to take a walk the first time I used it, so I still wash dishes by hand (not a big deal) and have been going to the old house to do laundry (boo), though I get to bring it back to a dryer which is amazing (soft towels for the first time in 12-1/2 years). Luckily, after writing this draft, they fixed the washing machine so I’ll be able to do it all here. They are still working on the exterior. And the front and back gardens are a mess.
I decided to take pics of my favourite things for now. I’ll post, finally, when I take the video of everything done (probably before the back garden is finished but that’s okay). And I’ll post where we purchased everything in case something strikes your fancy.
So, here they are…my favourite things:
