[ moving week ]

I CALL it moving week because it's incredible how everyday seems to require something to be done prior to us moving in this coming Saturday....

deliveries...


our new fridge {before we switch the handles around}...


our new stove being assembled...


gas cylinder delivery for our stove...


... and making sure our water and electricity is on. It's been a hot few days and unfortunately our patch of grass in the garden is showing it ~ we're trying to water like crazy! Luckily there are many gardeners in our neighbourhood who ride around on their bikes with their rakes who pop in through the back gate to help water, cut the grass, rake up fallen blossoms and keep things tidy. Ours is named Abid.

I thought I'd share what our living room/ dining room space looks like {it's one room} so you can see what I'm working with...


I've never lived in an all-tiled space but it's the norm here {unless the owner has installed laminate over the tile like we have in our apartment}. I love the marble stairs...


most likely our tv wall?...


As you can see it's not a large room, but at least it's one rectangular space which should make fitting in our big dining room table fairly easy. Rooms always look deceiving without furniture ~ we'll see how we manage to fit everything in without looking cramped. I'm still trying to envision the furniture layout. Hopefully I'll have a good idea of where I want things to go without driving the movers crazy.

Anyway, that's where we're at for now. AC downstairs needs repairing {it's been 44C/111F this week so that's a priority!} but that should be done on Sunday. At least it's functioning upstairs so we can sleep on Saturday night. :) We'll be without tv/internet for a couple of days but hopefully we'll be up and running quickly!

Wow! Lisa!
The rollercoaster analogy was pretty much apropo!
Lot's of work ahead, but I am confident that you will have it looking amazing in no time!
Your new appliances are fabulous!

Exciting! I can't wait to see how you transform the space!! You always pull together the most wonderful spaces. :-) I love the visual of the gardeners on bicycles with their rakes. :-)

And yes...the A/C must get fixed 111 is not in the slightest bit cool!! ;-)

The place looks nice and spacious and knowing you soon and will be cozy and warm a place to call home. Have a great weekend! Stay cool!

Congratulations on your move, it can be a very busy and stressful time. I like the stainless steel fridge. Oh my goodness it is really hot there, which may not be a total surprise but still that must be hard especially without the air conditioning working properly. I am sure that the transition will be complete soon.
