Packed and partially moved...

Yep, we're on the move.
Me, Mr & bubba Joe have packed most of our stuff & are currently sitting in our new rental in Tasmania.
Yep, Tasmania.

We haven't completed our move yet - the removalists deliver the stuff on Monday & we still have about 5% of smaller stuff left in the old flat - we'll sort that out later (one last trip home!). So I haven't said my goodbyes to Melbourne yet, I'm not quite ready for that!

But, let me just say, that moving with a 3 month old teething bub is a difficult thing.

Let me also say, that waking up & wandering out onto your new deck & seeing dolphins makes that previous said difficult thing seem suddenly worth it!

Some things I have discovered....
I have chipped every fingernail & can't find my emery board.
I didn't pack a spare set of jimmy jams & will now have to wear baby vomit jimmy jams to bed tonight.
Where is my moisturiser? My face feels like it is sucked dry.
The new bathroom is white, which is lovely, except for the fact I have almost black hair & I'm still losing it post-pregnancy, so now I have a black & white bathroom.
It's cold. Hobart is cold.
Restocking the pantry is turning out to be expensive. (you can't bring food over to Tassie because of quarantine)

A huge yacht just sailed our new place. I now feel really poor.
There are centipedes everywhere - dead centipedes. Do they come here to die? Is this place the centipedes equivalent to an elephants graveyard?
When do I get to sit down & relax? Will this ever happen again?
How long will it take me to find the perfect cafe?
How long will it take me to find the best craft supply shop?

Did you know that I miss blogging! I mentally write blog posts whilst in the shower or nursing bubba Joe but never get around to typing them up. And because I miss this the most, I'm going to try to do more.

What are you doing today? Come on, cheer me up - someone out there has got to be having a good day let alone a better week than me!!
