Ipswich

Moved!
Thanks to my sister for lots of hoovering, dusting and unpacking and Brother in law who did all the the fixing and connecting things, our son sorted stuff, visited his dad and fetched us food and our youngest and her bloke helped with shifting bits and got me connected. I couldn't have done it without them.

I made tea and coffee!

The estate agents gave me 2 boxes of chocolates so Col could have some in hospital - a kind thought.
The three young removal boys were lovely and so was the carpet fitter who worked part of Saturday and Sunday to get the 3 carpets done.

I have no idea how the gas boiler works but never mind - we have heat and hot water.

The house is too small for my craft stuff, and there are 1000 books that will have to stay in boxes and the shed and garage are piled high.Other than that everything is fine!

The cat is puzzled

I'm knackered

 Back when I'm sorted

  10. A relief to hear that the move went smoothly and you have a roof over your head (and not a tent in the garden!) What a lovely gesture by the estate agents.

    Try not to work flat out to make everything shipshape, but I'm sure you will anyway.

  23. So glad that all went well! The cat will cope & hopefully the worst problem you have will be working out where to shelve all your books.

    ReplyDelete

  26. You ar quite amazing!
    How you found time to blog yesterday beats me!
    As many others have posted, take all the time you need to settle. Try to give yourself space to just be, unless the relief of finally moving has you itching to nest build.
    More importantly hope Col is coping with the chemo and that you have time to visit him today. At least you are nearer the hospital now. Sue.

  27. Congratulations and HURRAH! You'll get settled in little by little. Having moved house (too) many times, I can promise you'll find places for your craft supplies and at least some of those books. Eventually. For now? Heat and hot water are good!

  33. Wonderful! So pleased it went smoothly in the end. Have a good rest and I'm looking forward to hearing more about your new home. Love to Col. X

  34. Wonderful. That's what family, friends and good workers are for. I can imagine how absolutely knackered you are, well done for managing the logistical side of things while Col is incapacitated, he must be feeling so frustrated that he is not there to help and be involved, although in the run up to this move he worked so hard.

    I wish you lots of happy times in your new little home. xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yee ha! I hope you, Col and the cat will be very happy in your new homw.xx How wonderful to have such help on what is always a very stressful day.

  40. Amazed that you posted an update on your move. Wonderful family/worker help always goes better with tea/coffee. I expect you are going to really like being able to pop up to the hospital to see Colin and go back again on the same day without a long journey. Enjoy your new home and hugs to your little cat.

  57. I spotted your blog on The Blessed Hearth blog. I like your map of Suffolk. I remember Ipswich. One of my favorite places to shop in, beside Felixstowe, where we lived after we were married. Both of us were US Air Force, serving at RAF Bentwaters and Woodbridge, 76-78. I'll add you to my list of blogs to read.
