Okay, so we have finally moved into our rental property whilst we await our next building adventure. I'm far from on top of things. I think it will take a couple of weeks to settle in. This weekend is full of social events so I can't see us regaining any sort of control until after then.
At the moment it feels like we are kind of on holidays...not everything is accessible...kind of like living out of a suitcase. Kind of. Samuel has asked to go home but I'm hoping he is slowly accepting this as home (before we uproot him again).
I like the area and feel safe here. I had some misgivings about whether I would. I like the smaller space to clean and I love the coziness of our lounge room. I also love the fact that Samuel is sleeping in his converted cot/bed and only hops into our bed early in the morning. I love the sunshine streaming through the kitchen in the morning. I think this house will be fun in Summer.
But I've also been spoilt in the past and am missing luxuries like my gas heater, an indoor parking space (the car is freezing in the mornings and I'm dreading the heat in coming months), my large laundry and a clothesline I can actually reach (I've already contacted the landlord), my ducted vacuum as well as my pantry and bench space...but it's also forcing me to be neater (sort of).
So for now I'm just trying to steer the ship and keep it from sinking. Most things are under control. It's just the clothes that keep multiplying...both needing to be washed and needing to be ironed. For me, the laundry/ironing room is like the control room of the ship. If I can get them under some semblance of order, then I'll feel a lot calmer.
Thank you to all those who have continued to check into the blog, despite my lack of blogging over the past week! I'll be back soon but in the meantime, don't forget to enter the Telstra T-Hub 2 giveaway :)
Which luxury could you not live without?
