Today I have been researching storage solutions. I have only the minimum but surprising large rooms so I need 2 display cabinets (to take all my ceramics and glassware), two bookcases and a pantry shelf. All I have been doing this week is buying things for the house and I am tired of it, but I’m also impatient so this means I have been haunting Ikea for answers to my home needs. They’ll be surprised that I haven’t visited today. Maybe tomorrow I’ll go again…
Yay, my things from the UK have finally arrived. Lots of unpacking to do, which is a bit like Christmas…you never quite know what you are going to find in each box. I have somewhere to eat and somewhere to sit, plus some plates and cutlery. Luxury! The house looks like a tip though. Packing and unpacking is messy business. And my bed sort of arrived, there was a problem with the mattress so this is night two on the blow up one, but at least now I have a little heater for my room so it is not quite so chilly.
I’m being stalked by cold weather. I left England to escape the cold but apparently it has followed me here to Adelaide. My new place is particularly chilly at the moment as it is completely empty, so I am shivering under all my new linen on the “luxury” blow up mattress. My real bed gets delivered tomorrow (Wednesday) along with all my shipped belongings. Then it is the long arduous chore of unpacking and finding a “spot” for everything.
*phew*, have made it to Adelaide and picked up the keys to my new house. It was a pretty long drive, leaving at 07:00 Victorian time and arriving 15:00 South Australian time. I stopped off at Mt Gambier, then again at Keith and Talem Bend for sketching breaks. This one is v.quick sketch of the bend in the Murray River.
