It always seems like the end of the day, week, month, year, is always so far away when you're looking forward to something. And then it flies past without you even noticing. Well, I'm certainly hoping that's the case with the month of June... because we're moving into our new house at the end of the month!
Things are certainly flying along now. Here's a little timeline:
8th June - brother continuing painting interior, hopefully finished later this week
11th June - solar hot water service installed
23rd June - carpets steam cleaned
24th June - can start moving some stuff in
29th June - Oscar the painter comes to finish off the painting my brother couldn't do (skirting boards, architraves, doors)
3rd July - start of weekend, begin seriously moving everything in, and clean up current house
8th July - current lease expires, hand keys back to real estate agent!
Such an exciting time! Now we've (ok, I've) got to start cleaning our current house, and throwing out a year's worth of collected junk. I'll have to be ruthless, because we're moving into a house smaller than our current one, so there's considerably less space.
Over the weekend we spent up big! First we went to IKEA <3 and bought curtains, cushions for our new couch, a shower curtain ($4, sweet!), a wooden chopping board and food containers (perfect size for leftovers, 3 for $3!). The cushions are too cute - however I'm worried that being cream, they'll get very dirty, very quickly! In that case, I can blame Jarrod, because he denied me my bright red cushions.
We also ordered our new couch, identical to this one here except we ordered a 3 seater (LINK). Just a cheapy Fantastic couch, but it's a 1000% improvement on our current couch, which is actually a futon.
Everything is slowly coming together!
