So, today is the day I’ve been waiting for since we moved, moving-in day! All of our stuff arrived at our abode at around 9pm this morning and there have been men in and out of the house all day bringing stuff in. It’s quite a shock to the system having all of your belongings back, you get used to living with just a couple of items – life’s so much easier with less stuff. I came home to find all of my clothing dumped upon my bed with excess furniture tossed around my room. It took me 3 hours to clear it off my bed and form a path to my bed which didn’t involve jumping over a keyboard, climbing onto a chest of draws or trying to avoid the searing pain of standing on hangers.

After not having enough furniture in our house for over a month we are now confronted with the rather odd issue of having far too much. All of the stuff that we’ve rented isn’t being taken until Friday so now we have double everything. For example, In my room today I have; two beds, four bed site cabinets and two sets of draws. Although this is really fun as you can choose which piece to sit on, it is starting to prove quite challenging when attempting to move from room to room. The kitchen is also a major hazard area as where are boxes of stuff being unpacked, dishwashers going off left right and centre whilst double the usual amount of cooking implements litter the surfaces.

It has come to my attention that some of the oddest things have been packed, why on earth would we ever need two recorders?! nobody in this family plays the recorder, let alone two and I don’t plan on starting a recorder choir anytime soon. The even more baffling issue is which individual decided that it would be a good idea to take the mini accordion?! Not mine I can assure you of that. I’ve already had to endure listening to the sound of Hamish wander the house singing along to it at the top of his voice. It wasn’t pleasant. But this does mean that we could start a family recorder and accordion band…
