Saturday we drove out to my friend L, that had been kind enough to let us use part of her basement to store some stuff. I think that we brought about 50 boxes out there as well as a lot of furniture also. Finally we had some space to begin to unpack. We are totally exhausted! This truely has been the weekend from hell when it comes to moves. It has been the worst move ever of all the moves we have made (and we have made quite some). This move has been about some serious downscaling. We moved from our big house in the south of 400 square meters to 70 square meters. Another problem was also that this place already came furnished. Luckily we have been able to squeeze most of his stuff down into his basement storage room.
But in the midst of all of this there has been some sunshine. We got our bed (even if C seriously doubted that we would even have space to lay it down so that we would be able to sleep in it) and I love it! We have missed our bed a lot. We also got our car (Grace as we have named her). I got kind of nostalgic when I saw our car. So nostalgic that I had to dry away a tear. C said he was very proud to have a wife that even shed a tear out of happiness when seeing the car.
Well, despite that this has been the weekend from hell it is now over and we have survived. We have got our stuff and we have taken care of the dreaded move and container. Now we can actually take a deep sigh of relief. We have actually managed to get some order out of all the boxes and stuff. I never thought we would come this far in just one weekend. I did not take any pictures of this place when it looked the worst but C did. I will show you later on. Have some before and after pics.
Our plan for the moment is to stay here for about a year anyway (we need time to recover from this move first) before we even start looking around for our place.
Today I also got to meet my brother and his wife and daughter for the first time. I had not seen my brother for over one year and this was the first time I met both J and little A. It was great meeting them and little A was so adorable and cute. We had a nice family dinner at my parents place. Now I am just dead tired and my bed just seems like heaven. So for now I bid you all good night.
