Six days ago we moved into this place, and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind since then. We both took some time off work to get moved in and settled-Jon had 3 1/2 days and I had just two-so we have been in full-on, serious, all-consuming house mode and I think we’ve taken some big steps towards making this place a little homier in just under a week (with some help from Jon’s parents and his brother and a lot of tools we don’t currently own). Obviously there is a lot more to do, but with going back to work tomorrow, all the rest will take some time. A lot of DIY weekends and evenings are in our future! There’s ugly wallpaper to get rid of, walls to paint, holes to fill, etc etc……I’m actually looking forward to all of it. Nothing like taking wallpaper down to make you feel ownership of a place.
It’s all good so far. Really, really good. I like it here.
