love shack...baby love shack!! (2)

so this morning, at 9 0'clock, the lease was signed with both our names on it!! we now have the keys and no time to go admire our new home...
Anyway, we have also been packing the infinite number of things of all kind that I have managed to accumulate. I am being careful to use "I" as chris' stuff took about 5 minutes and one suitcase to pack... while I'm still going and going and going.... i like it though and my only regret is not having time to look at every thing and tell chris the related story and ask him if he remembers when we took that photo or went to this cafe etc etc..... i hope we can do that when we unpack... and again, you'll notice the use of "i" as I am probably the only one hoping....
It is all highly exciting although the week end might be a bit loco!! we have booked a van for tomorrow and so we can move all our stuff and also find a fridge and maybe a bit of furniture if anything nice comes our direction... on sunday, we'll have to get on our hands and knees, and as Cinderella probably did it better than us, clean and scrub and dust and wash and wipe.....
The going away inspection will be next friday and i hope i get all my money back, normally, I should...
I think we'll try to spend our very first night, sleeping on piled up blankets and sleeping bags, in the new place tomorrow night!! i don't really care about comfort, I'm just way too excited and all my clothes are packed up anyway!!
So that's what is going on right now... we're both really really excited and i hope it is as good the second time as it was when we visited it for a whole five minutes...
I can't wait to hang the thong shower curtain on a real steel bar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loooove shack... baaaaby luuuve shack!!!!!!!!


so during all those weeks of silence, we were actually kept very busy... working (a total of 60 hours for me last week) and looking for a new love shack...
We applied for one on saturday, as quick as lightnening and we got the good news today... we'll be moving in on next saturday!!!
the place is really nice, it is much bigger than where we are now... it has a balcony for a future barbie..., new paint, new carpet (not green), a new kitchen and bathroom (with colors similar to papa's bathroom: nice almond green and white...) it looks like it will be sunny, and it will be very quiet...
anyway, we are very very happy and super excited, especially about the coming-up housewarming partay!!!
obviously, the only thing is that it will look BIG and EMPTY for a while but slowly, we'll find nice furniture to cover up the floor and walls, and in the mean time, we can admire the cleam mould-free walls...!!!!!!!!!
except some photos of the new nest soon!!!!!!!
