... Well done to all who guessed correctly!
Yep, not only did Stew get a new job, he gets a new location too.
Not new to us though. We have lived there before. So, we know the place.
It's somewhere I never really wanted to live in again... but needs must. A job somewhere is better than no job. Agreed?
Yep. Thought you would.
So. Where are we going?
Stew starts in July, so he will be commuting until we can sell up here. That can't happen until Steve and Bex move out of here though. So not too sure how long it will take for them to find a flat/unit/house of their own.
Hoping it doesn't take too long... but the housing situation in Auckland is abysmal, so it might take a while.
I'm sure it will all sort itself out though. It has to.
The next few weeks will be spent DE-CLUTTERING and taking stuff down to storage in Hamilton. It will keep me VERY BUSY as you can imagine.
I'm even going to pack up 90% of my sewing room, and only keep out the one project I've got on the go right now, the sampler quilt. (Ha!, that's if I get time to do any more sewing till we move).
I am going out today with Bex, to the mall. She has a few things to do and I want to source packaging material. Wrap. Boxes. Bla bla bla.
OMG The lists I've got on the go is insane.
Best thing? I'm too busy to eat rubbish, and I'm getting heaps more exercise!
I got some lovely photos last night of the bubs:
ABOVE: Stew with the boys... and Coco. She sneaked up, even when told not to. She's a bit naughty like that.
ABOVE: He's a good sized baby now, easily as big as Steve was at the same age. Bex is doing an amazing job feeding him. Actually, she could feed 3 babies easily! *smiles*
Right, better go. Got so much to do!
Dropped first load off at the Hospice Shop, it was lovely to catch up with the ladies there.
Bought heaps of cardboard boxes and packaging tape, posted a parcel to the USA, got me latest blood test done (ikkkk) and am finally home again.
We have an estate agent coming around next Wednesday night to appraise our home before we put it on the market, bearing in mind that won't happen till S & B move out.
I will now have lunch, then start packing stuff into boxes.
OH and Kelly is due here soon, she's taking Brylee to the 5SOS concert tonight.
I'm never going to hear the end of 5SOS! (Five Seconds of Summer, boy band... kill me now).
So, lack of sleep and exhaustion caught up with me... and I fell asleep on my lounge chair! lol
NOW I will get my A into G and start packing up my sewing room!
Kelly and Rena arrived too... and I went to sleep! Whoops.
KNACKERED! I worked for a solid 3 hours packing up my sewing room. I forget how many boxes it took but it's done. Expect for a small amount I am keeping out to work on in my spare time.
It's time to relax and just look at lists, real estate in Hamilton and so on.
End of Day: a very busy day I must say. Which I like. Sadly I've got a cold and sore throat, so really feeling blah.
Hopefully I feel a bit better tomorrow, as there is heaps to do!
