Moving Along Nicely

 


This was one of our two storage units this morning after we had removed two truck loads of our things and taken them to the house.  I say we in the broadest sense of the word ... the royal we ... as while I perch on whatever surface I can find poor Alan does all the lifting and shifting, with me offering advice over what we should be taking first ... and Alan occasionally doing as he's told 😄


Locking up after another successful trip.

My new bed arrived this morning and the guys assembled it for me.  It looks lovely in the room and is the perfect size, I'm so glad I went for the four foot option.  We went back an hour ago to check on things and I managed to stash all those white storage bags in the spaces under the bed with a little bit of room to spare.

The most exciting thing today was the delivery of the kitchen.  Currently some of it is stacked in the living room in the exact space the sofa will be sat by tomorrow night ... hopefully!!


The other units are already in place, and a bemused Suky checked them all out while Alan took Mavis for a walk along the canal, it was too warm for Suky to go, she's like me in that respect ... the hot days really take it out of her.  The kitchen will be properly fitted tomorrow and the guys have the keys ready for a 9am start.


Ginger says hi, he doesn't know it yet but his new cat-flap is in place in Alan's back door and soon he will once again have the freedom to roam and stake his claim to a whole new territory.

Back soon  😃

    1. It seems like a good mattress, but I've not been able to lie down properly since the start of May. Maybe a new mattress will help me 🤞😀

    1. Ginger is a very happy cat at the moment, I almost feel guilty moving him to somewhere else again. But I think he will love the freedom his cat flap will give him once more.

  9. Things seem to be whizzing along at a fair old pace now - it's so much fun to see ideas and plans coming together. That kitchen is going to be just lovely! Well, the while thing, in fact.
    Take care with that poor back. :-(

    1. The back is really complaining at the moment, I'm just trying to do what I can, when I can and avoid lifting whenever possible 😞

  10. It is all looking great Sue, and testament to your hard work and planning.

    Exciting to have the bed delivered - do you have a date for your "first sleep" :-)

  13. Love your bed and really, really hope it helps your back! The cushion headboard will be a great prop for sitting up in bed to read. So great to see the kitchen taking shape. You have to be so excited to see what the kitchen will look like at the end of today...especially since you need the space in the living room for the sofa. :) Coming together nicely!

    1. The bed seems comfy, so fingers crossed it helps my back. I'll know on Saturday night 😃

      I'm thrilled with the kitchen, not quite as thrilled with the current mess though, thank goodness I don't live there yet!!
