Radar


Morning My Seriously Neglected Friends!

We're in! Done. Moved. Almost Un-packed. Sorted. There were times on Sunday and Monday when it seemed un-ending, and the packing up, car and van loads were never going to stop. But, we won. And the sun was shining too. :) Result. Thanks for all your lovely comments, support and e-mails too.

I had a lovely moment on Tuesday. Very Understanding Hubby is a fan of making one mahoosive pile of boxes, in one room, keeping all the other rooms clear. I will admit, when I'm packing, I do like to see the pile growing in one place. It makes me feel like I'm getting there. But when I'm un-packing at the other end, I find one massive chunk of boxes more than a little intimidating. This time, so I don't get bullied by boxes, they're stacked up in the garage, and I can just go in and get them when I need to.

Sweet Cheeks has been enjoying playing in the garage. It's a novelty for him being able to get in there by himself and being allowed to. On Tuesday, he was exploring. There must have been about twenty, clear plastic tubs still stacked up. Out of all the tubs, he found the only one which had choklit in. I'm telling you, that boy has a radar. He is soooooooo, my son!

Hi Faye, lovely to hear you've moved in - last time I moved was into this house (over 10 yrs ago) and I don't think we'll be moving again. Toooo much stuff!!!!

Sorry I've not been over for ages, a combination of blogs dropping off my reading list; lack of time myself (no excuse I know!) and thinking that you've probably got enough to deal with without my inane meanderings in your comment box as well!

Sounds like you've got a well trained child there!

Sarah

Oh and almost forgot - love the card! Perfectly Clean and Simple and perfect.

So glad to hear you are in and starting to get settled. That's what we did last time, stacked most of them in the garage - it helped so much! Doodlepants was pretty small when we last moved and I remember how we kept him busy and let him "help" - I kept giving him sheets of stickers to "decorate" all the boxes - there were lots to do, so it works for big chunks of time, lol!

As if Sweet Cheeks can sniff out the chocolate - what a smart boy!!

Such a pretty card too - gee girl, don't know how you manage to keep posted in the middle of moving time!
Hugs,
Shanna :)
