Well, evidently LJ is back online. Since I was at work today, I wanted to take the chance to update the blog so everyone would know what was going on. I’ll be out the rest of the week, and we don’t have internet access at home yet.
The Big Move is finished, with a few minor catastrophes. It bucketed down rain while we were moving, which wasn’t fun. As we were parking the rented van after the very last trip, we accidentally sideswiped a parked car. £100 to Avis, £100 off the top to the insurance company, and gods only know how high our monthly premium will go. :( But it’s all finished now. We’ve been exhausted. There are boxes piled everywhere, we don’t know where anything is, and it will take ages to get everything put away…but we’re in!!!
On the top (third) floor, there is a crawlspace for storage in each of the rooms, with a hobgoblin-sized door accessing it. Very creepy, and I immediately christened them The Troll Doors (visions of Cat’s Eye). If I was a child, I couldn’t have slept in those rooms. I don’t know that I could as an adult, actually. I joked to Phil that the Troll Doors needed locks. And then, the first night, I was awoken by a crash in the middle of the night – one of the Troll Doors had fallen completely out of the frame and crashed against a radiator!!! Note to self: buy locks today.
Well, back to work. I’ll update this as soon as we have net access again.
