So we are between homes, mostly in the the new one but a lot of our stuff is here in Mamma's where we also come everynight for a chat and and a
wee go on the net (we haven't got an address yet!!! so no phone, therefore no internet....)
It has been quite the nightmare move to be honest. The estate agent, the developer, the architects, the builders - no one seems to know what they are doing (and in most cases, they are darn right uninterested in helping us sort it all out - not the builders, they're lovely). We moved into a house that wasn't finished on Monday last and a list of 40 snags, which were just the ones to start with :( Not the happy day we were hoping for to say the least. The builders and contractors only left on Wednesday dinner time and there are still things to be done and of course the all important address to find out - really it's like the blind leading the blind. To put it into perspective, I haven't even taken photos of the work we have done and the colour I have managed to get on the wall, the new bed, the carpet and the floor Andy laid - I just haven't been feeling myself at all. So I got this photo taken today for this blog just so you get an idea of the house.
Four people have completed but we are the only ones living in our house, everyone else just has too much to do to and are getting people in to lay floors and then they come and do a little painting in the evening etc. Therefore we have the noise of the builders all day and utter silence, deafening silence at night - it's a little different to what we're used to; I think if Maggie and her cuteness wasn't there we would be running for the hills ;)
Tomorrow is my first day there alone as Andrew goes back to work and in a way I am looking forward to it, but mostly I'm a little nervous (I am such a little girl!) . At least I have loads of paint in the house and can keep myself very busy indeed.
I have some 'before' shots of the rooms but I'm not going to put any up until I have some sort of 'after' to go with them, which is almost ready to be done for the living room and master bedroom.
I miss you all terribly and want to sit for a couple of days and catch up with all your stories but I just can't so I'll have a quick glance around and maybe get enough time to leave a message - major hugs and I dearly hope we get ourselves on the net soon and I can be part of the gang again :)
