Into #thedarlingden

November 19, 2012

Last week was the final move into the new place. I can understand why they say that moving is one of the most stressful times. I’ve been a mess of emotions. Our internet is taking longer to set up, thanks to poor service from Telstra. We rang up 10 days in advance as my Father and I both need the internet, and were assured it would be ready to go by the time we moved in. Except, they forgot to put through the order for the modem. So, fingers crossed we shall have it by weeks end. We had to go out and buy a wifi dongle.

My place is slowly coming more and more together. I still have 2 more walls to paint, but one needs to wait until after we’ve finished the renovations to my kitchen. I have learnt that I have SO MUCH stuff, and have been trying to cull some things. I’m a sentimental hoarder, if it has a strong memory attached to it, I don’t want to get rid of it.

The animals have settled in well, in fact, I think they all like this place better! They certainly don’t seem to miss the countless stairs of the old place and they’ve been enjoying exploring the backyard. I’ve found myself in the backyard often, while this house doesn’t have a pool, we seem to have an abundance of bird life. Cockatoos, Rainbow lorikeets and kookaburras are just a few of what i’ve spotted!

I can’t wait to get back online properly and fill you all in on everything & get back to regular posting. Until then, thank you for your patience! 😀

    Congratulations on making it through the move in one piece. Moving is really stressful. It’s great to see that the animals are doing well in the new place too.

  • Ok, firstly, finally got the hang of this Disqus thing, so now I know how to comment properly! I can imagine it’s been so stressful moving. I recently had to go through my childhood belongings and all my stuff from Uni which had sat untouched for over 10 years! It was the hardest thing! I’m like you, in that the things that had sentimental value (and were usually the old, tatty things) were just so difficult to part with. I threw out old clothes that had so many stories and some of my Sindy doll stuff which nearly killed me. It’s a really hard thing to do.

  • Yay! It has been crazy with the move. I’ve managed to throw some things out, but I’ve just not been able to part with so much stuff. It is SUPER hard to do. xox

  • The animals are LOVING the new place!!
