Last weekend my housemate Bec and I spent three days (took a ‘moving day’ on Friday and had the day off work, god bless the public service!) moving 1.5km down the road to our new house. Luckily we had a small tribe of burly men help with the heavy lifting.
Obviously there were plenty of Ross (from Friends) “PIVVVOOOOOTT!” jokes. Mostly from me.
After two truck loads we shouted the boys a big breakfast using the funds we made from selling our old fridge. I had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup.

I think I’ve mentioned the house is decked out with some pretty fancy light fittings, this is the one above my bed:
This is the view from my room into the hallway. I had a lot of fun arranging that bookshelf.
And this is a photo I took out the front as I was getting into my car this morning for work and the sun was shining, the birds were chirping and trees were swaying gently in the breeze:
So happy with our new place!
