Bad blogging habits

I think about updating this blog all the time, it's just usually at a bad time. While I'm busy at work or cooking dinner or in the shower, you know how it is. And then when I do have the time, at say 9pm when dinner has been cooked, eaten and cleaned up, I somehow don't have the energy for what seems like a big effort.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

Well no, of the moon, but every time I hear the word eclipse Bonnie Tyler starts singing in my head. Could be worse I suppose, I could get images of vampires...

IKEA Injuries

  Last night I braved the cold and the crowds and went to IKEA again. Happily, it was rather empty and parking was a breeze (though traffic to get out there was shocking). Bought the bed for the guest room, bedside, a few blanket boxes, storage tins and bits and pieces. Then I spent the rest of the night putting the bed together. Was surprisingly complicated and probably the most intricate IKEA piece I've dealt with so far.

Moving frustrations.

My kitchen - before I started to move in

The day was full of dramas.

I have keys :-)

And the movers have confirmed an 8am drop off tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it but I feel a little weird about it too, makes the moving thing seem more real. After being here for 3 weeks you'd think I should be used to the idea by now.

Visited the apartment tonight and dropped off some things. I've managed to accumulate quite a bit in such a short period. Doesn't help that I've bought 3 pairs of boots and a giant wine glass...quite bulky things to move. Will have to upload a pic of my wine glass, but I might leave it until I've given it to a fish friend as a new home.

Few things weren't quite as I remembered them, I don't think the furniture I've ordered will fit in our bedroom. Will ring tomorrow and attempt to change it to a tall boy instead of the low chest. Not what we wanted but I'd rather not have to climb over the bed to get to the other side of it...

A New Season

Today was the first day of winter, it's funny but there was a notable change in the temperature...was 6 degrees when I got to work this 9am. To me, that's cold. I used to consider the day to be freezing if it was less than 10 degrees when I left home at 7am in Brisbane. Things are going to get interesting.
