There is a strong possibility I am going to need a wheelchair tomorrow… it is a shame my sister lives an 11 hour drive from me, I’m sure I could otherwise borrow hers until my body recovers from a 90 minute Iyengar yoga session on Monday and then moving house today. Every time I bend over I just about fall over, so we’ll see how things pan out tomorrow!
Raymond has coped remarkably well with the move, although I had forgotten exactly how indignant his meow can be when he is locked in a bedroom! He spent the day upstairs while we moved and cleaned and unpacked.
I’m going to be honest here, I hate moving. Absolutely hate it and I have been stressing about it for days, even waking up in the middle of the night, panicking and not being able to breathe. We moved again because the house we rented when we moved towns was just not to our satisfaction and we decided the day we moved in that we would leave as soon as the lease ended in six months. Such are the dangers of taking a house without being able to view it, but that was what we had to do at the time! So we looked around and found a place that suited us just perfectly and costs a lot less and we are very happy to have moved in. Within a few hours the above mess became out daybed…
A bit wrinkly, but our beautiful daybed anyway! As well as being a lovely little home, we have a view we are just loving. As you look at it, imagine the sound of birds and a river and that lovely still sound of silence to go with it.
Yes, we are going to be very happy here.
So to round off this post, my May mosaic. May feels like it has been a really long month! I’m loving the Autumnal colours of this mosaic, so much yellow and orange is quite spesh and quite unlike any other mosaic I have made over the last 17 months. I am loving it.
Included in this mosaic are some yarns I bought in Wellington and also, down the bottom there, on the right… yes, that is a rainbow set of knitpro needles there… *love them!*
And there went May! June is set to be a busy month in my little world, I’m travelling to the big city of Auckland TWICE for work, as well as settling into our new home and continuing to settle into our new city.
June is also going to be the month I start my next granny square blanket which I am MOST excited about… as you can see, the Gypsy Caravan Blanket is on our daybed, so our bedroom bed needs a blanket of its own. I’m going to do a lovely big multi-coloured higgledy-piggledy blanket and I can’t wait to get started. Being that my swift is packed and the yarn I am making it with is all in skeins, not balls, KB is in for a mega-wool-winding-weekend. I’m betting she is quite excited about that!
What has June got in store for you?
I’m off, I need to find my work clothes for the morning!
