Unpacking etc

After a weekend of unpacking and finding little odd jobs to do and errands to run we've got the kitchen finished, and the computers set up in the study.

It's bloody hard work this moving lark!

Still, at least there's no real rush.

All in good time..

Up all night

Our first night in the new house was a short one, or a long one depending on your point of view.

All of our things were delivered this morning so we decided we would move right in.

Directv were coming between 4-8pm to install the TV and we'd be set.

The guy arrived a little before 7.30pm and got to work.

He was in and out of the house, in the garage, in the loft, in the bedroom, outside, every where.

At 10pm we were getting tired and wanted to go to bed so we went to ask him how much longer he'd be.

He said he was having trouble because the house was not wired for a DVR so he needed to put all new wires in but he said it would be about another hour.

We'd waited long enough so we let him carry on instead of asking him to come back in the morning.

Any way....At 1.50am he was finally done!

I was up again at 6am for work so we didn't get much sleep but at least it's all done now.

A weekend of unpacking awaits!

Closure (Part 2)

We closed on our new house today..finally!

It seems like it took forever but it all actually went through pretty quickly considering we sold a house and bought a new one in just over 2 months.

All of our stuff is getting delivered tomorrow so we'll be able to spend the night there tomorrow night all being well.

A weekend of unpacking awaits!

Almost there..

Our closing on the new house has been pushed back until next Wednesday.

There was a small snag with the seller trying to force us into giving them a lot more money at the last minute but we're all sorted now.

I'll be glad when this whole process is over!

Hospital Tour

We went on a tour of the hospital last night so now we know where we need to go when the time comes and what is likely to happen.

The doctor assured us that we're unlikely to give birth in the car on the way to the hospital, and that I'm unlikely to faint in the delivery room.

Now I'm worried about having to deliver a baby in the car at the side of the road, then fainting when it finally happens!

All in all, it was good to see where we need to go but by the time the baby gets here I will have forgotten it all and will be relying on my wife to tell me what to do in between contractions.

Baby Registry

We went to Babies R Us today to do a baby registry for my wife's baby shower.

The best part of doing a registry is getting to play with the hand held scanner.

We were probably in there for a couple of hours scanning all of the things we'll need once the baby arrives.

I must admit it was good fun, even more than when we did the Wedding registry, probably because we got to think about using everything with the baby.

We even bought a few things but we managed to avoid getting too carried away.

Luckily the shop gave us a list of things you should have on your registry. It came in handy because I have no idea what we will need once she arrives, other than clothes, nappies and toys.
