"She's About A Mover" - Sir Douglas Quintet, 1965

Sorry for the days of silence. It's been CRAZY around here. But John and I are all moved. Can you hear the sigh of relief?

We are far from being settled, but at least all of our belongings are in just one house now!

Let me give you an idea of the recent timeline....

Saturday the 7th -- fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer were all delivered...but the dishwasher and dryer were damaged and will need to be redelivered

Tuesday the 10th -- all of the blinds were installed in our house

Wednesday the 11th -- carpeting was installed (but only starting around 11am that day), while packing was underway at the house I've been renting

Thursday the 12th -- moving day...and the dishwasher was replaced (moving-in finished at about 1:30pm, and the dishwasher arrived just after 2pm)

Friday the 13th -- dryer was replaced, and the house we moved out of was cleaned

Saturday the 14th -- first day with no appointments!

I'll resume writing when I can. But meanwhile, here's a photo of a very tired couple happily posing this afternoon in front of their first home together...


(Click on the image for a full-sized version.)

We have a livable bedroom and living room, and the kitchen only has a few boxes in it. So given that we've only been in the house a few days, we're doing all right. And can you believe that in the midst of all of this, we've had NO RAIN AT ALL...and remember THIS IS ENGLAND!!! I just can't believe our good fortune!

More as I can...and John will be posting a series of moving-out and moving-in photos on Smugmug soon, and I'll post a link here.
