Sunday, October 28
going to a wedding, a trail of confetti, boxes so many boxes, new bedroom view, animal hats, pub break.
So finally I finished work! I had a few days to get everything in order, all the things that I hadn't been able to do for 6 months and go to a friends wedding, before I found myself on a plane flying to England.
How strange to arrive at a new house instead of the 'family home'. Walking in the door of a house that is full of mysteries but also full of familiar belongings as the furniture has already been installed. How fun that first exciting feeling, rushing around a new house, discovering new rooms, finding which bedroom is yours.
After settling in I immediately set to work. I found the cupboards full of boxes that hadn't been unpacked, a small attic through a secret door in a bedroom was crammed full of more boxes and upstairs I even discovered a sauna...packed full of towels and bedsheets. I have my work cut out for the next week.
After a few hours I had found 7 hairdryers, a mystery hockey stick and 3 cupboards full of jam. I felt quite overwhelmed at the task I had ahead of me. So I stopped and went for a pub lunch.
Will she ever empty all the boxes?
Will she ever use the sauna?
Will she ever convince her father to stop making jam?
