I am brimming with thoughts, gossip, stories, adventures, crafting (a little, OMG!) but most of all love!
We're in our darling new house in the west of Melbourne, and loving the area completely! I can walk easily to Yarraville village, Seddon village, and freaking Footscray (my fave!) with the best multicultural shopping strips and restaurants I've ever seen! I'm going to eat myself silly!
Hooray! It's great to finally make it to Sunday night though, beause after I left Wagga Wagga things got a little crazy. Doggie Darling and I got cabin fever big time (but we love each other again now), I got crazy overtired because I became a worry wart about the move. Our stuff *still* hasn't arrived from Sydney. I have no idea where it is, but it's in a shipping container somewhere even though the 'relocation' company initially guaranteed three days and no more of transit. During my initial discussions with them, I believe the words 'Next Day Delivery' was even mentioned.
But, it's Sunday now, and I'm sitting on our new Ikea guest room bed (we were going to buy one eventually, so at least we have something to sleep on now) and we've spent a whole lot of money but we've also got some amazing little pieces of furniture and a fantastic house with fabulous neighbours!
And I braided my hair today:
Double Yay! AND, whilst we've been watching Dexter (season 4, wtf omg etc etc etc!) I've been crocheting a bit of this scarf crossed with this scarf (who is SO gorgeous btw) for my Husbie. It's a different kind of cold here in Melbs, but not utterly as freezing as I thought it would be! I have had to get some extra singlets from the oppie and tights from 'Forges' in Footscray to prepare from that 8am commute!
As for Dexter, Husbie wanted me to tell you that when we were walking through Seddon village today, we spotted a vintage carving knife with the brand name called 'Dexter' and we thought that interesting at the time. Especially since Dexter uses a lot of knives to cut people up with. And you were totally right Oona about the 30/70 good/bad part... the twists in the last 2 episodes. OMG ick!
Talk soon, I hope!
