Well, even though he's still not well. ... Stew is going back to work today. edit: Scrap that, he's staying home and going to the Doctor's. Good idea I say.
And I am driving down to Hamilton too... with a load of 'fragile' boxed stuff. And some of our paintings and pictures off the walls.
Once I've put it all into the new storage unit, I will probably be going over to Chartwell Square to get a little 'something' I saw a while ago.
I promised myself I would ONLY get it when we got a new house. Hopefully it's still in the shop.
I will show you later IF I get 'it'.
Before I leave, I will take a photo of the interior of my car! It's stacked to the gunnels... it's going to take me a while to unload it all on my own, but I can do most things if I take my time.
Our bed is all wet! Stew has been sweating so much his side of the bed is WET! I know he's a hotty, but really! I hope the Doctor can give him something to get him well again. But I have a feeling it's a virus, and all they will give him is panadol! Time will tell.
Right, I'm gunna get ready to go.
11.24 am: very happy to say I got that special little something. And I've unloaded all the boxes in the storage unit in Hamilton. Now I'm in Cambridge.... met one of our new neighbours... lovely old chap named.... CHRIS😊 I wont be forgetting his name in a hurry!
2.53 pm: Home.
Stew is on antibiotics till he is better.
We now have a definite date for our move, as the people who own the Cambridge house are moving out a couple of days early.
So I'm in communication with the moving company, and it looks like we will be heading to Cambridge on the 10th of June!
That is in 22 days! WHOOP WHOOP!
We will probably need to stay in a motel for only one night, excellent!
I forgot to take a photo of my car stacked to the gunnels with boxes and pictures. Oh well... how about that special 'something' instead?
I have the PERFECT place for it in the new house... as you go down the passageway, you turn left, and at the end of that part of the passageway is where it will go.
He/she will be staring at you as you round the corner! So cute. Needs a name?
Sorry BEX, it's MINE. I know you love giraffes, but they only had one.
ABOVE: While in Cambridge this morning, I had a browse around the shops, saw this gorgeous scarf and got it. It's much colder in the Waikato, so scarves will be handy.
ABOVE: This is Mary, our estate agent here in Auckland. I gave her a 'Thank You' gift yesterday. A lovely apricot scarf, two blingy coat hooks and the little fabric box I made some time ago.
She loved it! I love giving suprise gifts to people.
After some discussion, we have decided the giraffe is a girl. LOL. Clearly we have nothing better to do right now that ponder if the giraffe is a girl or boy! *smiles*
And now she has a name: Zambi. (short for Zambesia, where giraffes live, among other places).
We have had a very nice evening. Had a lovely long chat with me Mum. She looked at our new home on the internet last night, and lucky she did because the Estate Agent pulled the ad offline today. She loves our new home, I knew she would. *smiles*
