No More Sleeps

Today we became the proud owners of our new home.


It has been a long process, with contracts exchanging back in November, but finally the day has come.

Unfortunately, it was not good timing for GDITC at Nundle, so I had to cancel the weekend........next year.

We took the first few boxes over this afternoon and Mick will have many more loads.  At least it is only a few kilometres each way this time, not a 56km round trip, like last time. He has taken the next two weeks off work. The removalists are coming next Monday to move the big stuff and we have to be completely moved before Easter.

It was funny seeing the new house empty for the first time.  

I'm just a tad excited about this...


Let's see what is behind those doors... which can be closed to hide what lays beyond....


The "Ta Da" moment:


A blank canvas.  It will never look like this again.


It is huge, at 6m x 4m, with great light and a door onto a side verandah......and all mine.  I've never had my own sewing room before.


I've no idea where I'm going to put things, but I will have fun figuring it all out.  I reckon all my bits and pieces will fill it up.

Things will probably be a bit chaotic around here for the next little while, so I will be back when life calms down a bit and I have things sorted enough for me to have a play in my new space.

Hi Janice - oh wow I'm so excited for you... new home and fabulous new sewing room - and what a size it is! You'll probably set things up then re-arrange a few times before you hit on a layout that really works for you!

How exciting, a new home and a sewing room just for you!! I'm sure you will have fun getting it just how you like it, and the rest of your home too, of course. Then there is the garden- oh dear, there's work ahead! But you won't mind because it's all yours, and it's all brand new.
