I has a home nao

I read an amusing blog post somewhere on the interwebs this morning and as I was reading the comments I was mildly amused to see this.

I always have a little chuckle when I see people commenting that they are the first commenter because they are invariably the second or third.  It's almost like there is an unwritten law.  As soon as you find yourself typing the words 'I'm the first commenter' the Universe will ensure that someone has beaten you to the punch.  Kind of like Murphys law.

Anyhoo...great news;  I moved into my new apartment yesterday.  I have to wait till the weekend to get my washing machine in and there are a couple of carloads of smallish crap that I have to take over from where I am now but otherwise its done.  I have so many boxes and crates of crap to unpack.  I think I will be unpacking for at least a month.  But I'll get through it and I'm determined to find space for everything.  My most awesome friends from the Central Coast came up and helped me to lift ALL the things yesterday and  I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends. I will assuredly be inviting them for a bang up dinner as soon as I am unpacked and settled.

I had a lovely long hot shower before going to bed last night and I have to say it felt SO good.  It was almost orgasmic it was so good.  lol.

Sadly there is no phone line into my apartment so I'm going to be offline for the next couple of weeks while I try to get that sorted out.  Anyone who needs to contact me should call or txt me if they have my number or otherwise email me at

I'll be back as soon as I can.  In the meantime, have fun and keep smiling. :oD

Dont Panic...

Just a quick update today.

A lot has been happening in the last few weeks.  I had a sudden unexpected change to certain living arrangements and had to look for a place to live at the same time as having to move some more of my stuff into storage which meant obtaining a larger storage space than the one that I already had.  That was a particularly busy weekend. I had forgotten just how much stuff I had. O.o

I have been frantically looking at rentals and have to say that in the year and a half since I had my last rental, prices have gone way way up and quality has come way way down.  Due to owning huge furniture I had to be a wee bit picky about what I could take so its been a bit frustrating to find that most of the places on the market wouldn't fit my couch let alone the rest of my stuff.  

I finally found a half house that is both big enough (more or less) and that I can afford (just) and have arranged to sign the lease on the 12th of June.  I cant wait.  Everything I own has been in a paid storage facility for a  year and a half and I'm pretty certain that unpacking is going to feel a little bit like Christmas as I've forgotten half of what I have in the multitude of boxes.  I have had an overwhelming urge to nest in the last couple of months and knowing that I'm three days away from actually being able to begin nesting is a  heady feeling.

I have had to put a hold on all the crafting for a little bit while I get things sorted and hope that I'll manage to unpack fairly quickly once I get everything into my new place.  I want to have an update ready for the web store by the end of June so will be trying to organise a photo shoot with my lovely volunteer models.  In amongst all of this I will be having my birthday which will most likely slip past quietly without me having time to even notice.  ;o)

I've never considered birthdays to be a very big deal, but I would like to point out that this year is the big one.  I'll be 42.  Which anyone out there who has read Douglas Adams will know; is the answer.  So I'm thinking I need to buy a teeshirt with the words 'mostly harmless' and the number 42 on it.  If you've never read any Douglas Adams, you will have no idea what I'm talking about and should completely disregard this paragraph ;o)

Anyhoo, I'm off to get more sorting/packing/organising done. Until next time...dont forget to keep your towel handy.
