Well of course we will be doing more unpacking and sorting today!
There is just so much to do.
ABOVE: Steve is like me, he dislikes anything being uneven! If I had a level like he has, I would do that too. *smiles*
ABOVE: It just gets more congested in here! Hopefully by Monday or Tuesday we will actually be able to use the kitchen bench!
Oh, and eat off plates. I've still not found the dinner set.
ABOVE: The garage... Something tells me my car won't be parked in there for quite some time.
ABOVE: Ummm... this is the lounge. Yep. Got heaps to do in here.
ABOVE: Steve fixing my pantry shelving.
ABOVE: Done. No more sagging and now it has 'compartments' for differing types of food items.
I think it's neat. THANKS STEVE.
This morning we are expecting our son Russell to pop in. We are giving him our green lounge suite. It's being replaced with a corner lounge suite, one that incorporates a sofa bed.
So, we will have plenty of room if we have visitors staying overnight.
Once he's been we are going to take a break from all the unpacking and go into Hamilton.
We want to view the Queen Bed we have ordered from Harvey Norman's, and if it's as good as it looked online, we will buy it.
Hopefully we will get it, and the lounge suite, delivered in the next few days.
We also have a small list of other things we want to get, so will work on that while in Hamilton too.
Catch ya later...
12.08 pm: We decided to dedicate today to getting all the kitchen boxes unpacked and put away. We have done probably 70% of it.
ABOVE: You can ALMOST see the bench tops now!
ABOVE: I think we have too many glasses! Lots will be going to the Hospice shop.
Russ and Ange called in and picked up the green lounge suite, and a few other bits 'n' bobs.
We are now taking a break for lunch.
Harvey Norman's have not assembled the bed we want yet, so we won't be looking at it today.
But we have heaps of other things to get ... so we are going out later on.
EXHAUSTED. We went out and bought a new clothes line, a heat gun to melt plastic bottles so they take up less room in the recycling bin, white thermals for Brylee so she can wear them under her white uniform shirt, I got some winter tops, an alarm clock for Griffin, a roller blind for Griffin's room and a few other little things.
Got home utterly spent. I've been on my feet all day! Both Stew and I have really aching legs from being on them all day... something we are not used to!
Stew cooked our first meal in the kitchen tonight... sausaged and spagetti/baked beans on toast. Nothing fancy tonight!
I am almost ready to take a photo of the kitchen with nothing on the benches!!!
But for now... I'm signing off and taking a break.
