I Fuckin' Love You Guys....

Home is where the heart is - and where the furniture aint...

We are all moved in to our new house....exciting times!
The move went pretty well - we spent several days before the "move day" packing up and getting ready, and we'd hired movers to do all the heavy lifting on the day, so there weren't too many surprises. Although it absolutely pissed down with rain on the day, and the moving guys & I got pretty drenched....and the washing machine doesn't fit in the cupboard it is supposed to go in....but other than that - it's all good.
We are really enjoying the new place....Yoyo just loves it - she was pretty much restricted to the lounge room in the old place, but now she has free run of most of the house, and she scurries around from one room to the next like a mad cockroach...
We couldn't afford a new house and new furniture, so the place looks a bit empty at the moment. I've lectured my lovely wife on my opinion that we should definitely not just buy some cheap stuff that we can afford right now, just to fill up the house - I'd rather sit on cushions and have dinner on the floor until we can afford to get something nice. I think that when you buy that $350 dining room set, just to have something, you have a tendency to not go out and replace it with something nice - it's no longer a priority. So three years down the track, you're eating dinner on a 3-year old dining set that was a piece of crap to begin with...
We did splash out on a really nice outdoor furniture set - a huge kwila table with 8 chairs, and cushions, and a box to store the cushions in and a drinks cart....we plan on entertaining in the backyard a bit...of course, for our first day in the new place we had to sit on the floor in the loungeroom eating our dinner and watching all of our lovely new outdoor furniture get soaked in the rain...oh well - priorities, eh?
Hope you are well!

Who would have thought we'd be getting our summer storms and humidity during Autumn? Congratulations on the new house, and remember you can always bring the outdoor furniture indoors if you're so inclined (rather than being horizontally reclined on the hardwood floor!)
