One Week Later…

August 19, 2011

Unbelievable, we’ve been here a week already.  Am finding it hard to work out where the time has gone.  In the time that it took the Lord God to make the earth, everything on it, and have a rest we’ve achieved the following:

Not a corner shop for miles and miles...but here's the post office

  • Unpacked 50%
  • Visited the local “retail park” x4
  • Eaten everything we’ve bought in those 4 visits
  • Had our first guests
  • Received (with thanks and praise) a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher
  • Not received anything from Ikea (thanks to me)
  • Walked into town x4 (but still not properly explored)
  • Legs waxed
  • Doctors sorted
  • Nursery visited (OMG, so cheap, so much space…it would be positively neglectful to not pack them off there asap)
  • Found new local (serves real ale and has its own bowling green at the back…bowls is so the new pool)
  • Visited chippie only twice
  • Visited London once

Next on the to-do list - make jam!!!

Not bad going.  But suddenly on top of all the things left to do (boring), and all the places yet to explore (exciting), there’s the reality of what we’ve done: moved into a massive house with only one income.  That means that the hoovering/dusting etc etc still has to be done but we can’t really justify a cleaner.  Arse.  And before either Alice or my Mum pipe up with the fact that i’m saving so much time now we’ve got a dishwasher…well…actually no real rebuttal to that…will try and start the cleaning work before i have to post a picture of the dust to shame myself into action.

Cor, moaning about the housework on my blog (as opposed to just doing it) – that’s pretty dull.  It’s a Friday night goddamit, margerita and spliff and PS3 beckon…ciao.

POX WATCH: Potentially one pox on Trilby…it starts again…joy
