We have a HAUS!

It's cooler than I remembered. There's more storage than I knew about. There's more furniture in there than I remembered, too, although some of it is going away. The kitchen is less awful than I remembered. The garden's still a disaster, but perhaps somebody'll come in to fix it up, or maybe we will.

I packed up mass market paperback books, CDs and DVDs until I ran out of boxes last night (didn't take long, as we don't have very many boxes, and man, we have too many DVDs again), and got a fair bit of my office (which isn't very complicated) packed up. The former of those got brought into Cork and the latter, well, didn't. We emptied out the boxes and I ran around taking pictures and then we came home again.

This afternoon I'll probably go to Argos and order one or two futons, an entertainment stand of some sort, and maybe some bookshelves. Because we're not going to have enough. Then I'll come home, and, because I'm a real party animal, I'll probably unpack all of our landlord's dishes and pack our dishes into the boxes the landlord's dishes are currently in.

I need to:

- switch the phone/internet to the new haus
- pack
--> living room books
--> various other living room crap (need more boxes)
--> kitchen:
-----> wash all dishes
-----> clear table
-----> remove our dishes to table
-----> scrub cupboards
-----> remove landlord's dishes to cupboards from boxes
-----> pack as many of our dishes as we have box space for
- call current landlord & tell her we're outta here
- write a proposal
- do revisions

...no problem. :p

As my son is becoming a gardener I'd volunteer him to help - though the commute may be a bit much for him. Still if you want a design at least, give me a shout.

... Well, that's the first 30-minutes of your day taken. What're you gonna do with the rest of it? (joke) :)

Yay for you! The outside looke interesting. I think the backyard view is going to be awesome. Is this the one with the hole in the garden wall?

Well, it does in fact have a hole in the garden wall, so yes, but it's not the one (either house or hole) I'd referred to before, no. :)

Ooh, you have a design on your cooker. Very cool.

Lovely house
The garden isn't. Still, the cat would love it.
