Moving in began yesterday. One of the first things I did, was to buy some flowers to make the room look more homely.
Transferring boxes over from home to the unit was slow progress as I was on my own. However, things sped up today as Alan has taken a few days off to help me carry the heavier things, put some shelves up, curtain rails etc... So grateful for his help!
My old workroom was packed with boxes and furniture ready to go.
Thank goodness for the van, it made the job much easier and faster than yesterday.
After school, Miss P was keen to help out.
That Ikea bookcases were heavy! Despite a broken nail or two and a bit of back ache, I enjoyed the moving process. Each time something left the house, it felt very satisfying.
The unit is just a few miles away from home, only a short drive down in to Shepton Mallet.
As the boxes, bags and furniture poured in to the unit, I wonder how I ever managed to stock all that at home in our sweet but small cottage!
We worked until just before 19.00 hours and then went back home to eat a much needed "cottage pie".
Tomorrow the work continues....I need to decide where some of the furniture will go. I don't have all the furniture yet, I still need to buy a sewing table, a sofa, a large vintage rug, a dresser, clothes rails and more Ikea storage units for the packing area.
I think we'll sleep well tonight!
