sweet home

There's big stuff going on chez Kuka & Boy which has had us up and down kept us a very busy pair of bees.

Now that the stuff is really happening (it was uncertain for a while there) I can tell you that all this busy is because we bought a house!!

It's such a relief to have the real estate and bank stuff organised - now we just need to wait.
And pack.

We still don't have a concrete date for when we can get the keys - originally the seller wanted 45 days, then when we came to exchanging contracts they wanted 21.
We figured this was perhaps a little tight, especially considering how long the pre-contract bank stuff had taken, so went for 30 days.
We were hoping to get the keys on the Thurday before the June long weekend, but have now been advised that the seller isn't in a position to be out before the following Thursday, and since that is a really bad week for me (way to much worky stuff going on) we've asked for another week but haven't heard anything back.

In any case, we should be moved in with in the next month!

For now we have boxes all over the place.
I've been packing my crafty stuff very carefully, and taking time to catalogue everything on Ravelry as I go.
Of course, that's also partly because I'd rather be organising the stash than sorting all the clothes under the bed in the spare room...

There's always tomorrow for that, right ;)



  1. Oooh, so grown up and exciting! Warmest wishes (but cold champagne of course) to you and Boy.

    As a veteran of many moves, the catalouging is an excellent idea.

  2. Yay! It's out in the open! So exciting for you two. And with more space, you won't know what to do with yourselves!

  3. Oh Congratulations! How exciting for you!

  4. Congratulations and champers all round!! - The joys of home ownership are many (not least of which is never having landlords!!) Great Idea to catalogue!

  5. Congratulations and good luck for a smooth move!!!

  6. Congratulations on your new house. It's exciting & fun settling into a new home especially the decorating. I have moved 12 times in the last 27 years!

  7. Congratulations, how exciting!! Good luck with all your plans and ideas!!!

  8. Finally I get around to reading your blog! Sorry I haven't visited sooner- it's great! Congrats on the new house. It's bloody nerve-wracking, isn't it, but so exciting when you actually get the keys!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
