We have moved

There I said it. It is done. Did the suspense kill you?

We have finally done it. We have spread our wings and flown the in-laws coop.

We are living it up at Phillips. Our own little semi-detached unit heaven.

It was all very exciting until we entered the front door, trailer load of "stuff" in tow and found the previous tenant hadn't cleaned. In fact I would hazard a guess the previous tenant hadn't cleaned anything in a good 6 months.

Not to worry. The last week (though quiet on the blog) has been filled with wall washing and oven scrubbing and tears over how much dirt and muck their is to clean. But joy and triumph and great accomplishment after each room is completed.

I am horribly high on cleaning products, but found that sugar water was clearly sent straight from Heaven when it comes to wall washing.

I shall be finished I suppose by tomorrow. Then life ( and the blog) will return to normal and I suppose I shall continue to story of like to love.

Just for you Collette. I know how you swoon over Kyle's gallantry ;)
