Live-blogging the move (as per Normal)

8am - Llew unplugs the TV, stereo and Xbox.

8:02 - Llew complains about how heavy the kitchen cabinet is. That's called good quality!

8:23 - Peanuts is not happy as the beds are cleared.

8:51 - Llew starts sneezing from dust.

8:52 - Many boxes moving downstairs.

9am - With cheering from Alice we pause to look around... Still so much stuff!!!!!

9:30 - HOT. Pepsi. Cars getting loaded. Waiting to get truck.

The start of the move

T'was the night before the move,
and all through the house,
none could get past boxes,
not even a mouse.

In the half packed state,
there was nothing to do,
except to watch TV
while the pile of boxes grew.

Be bathroom was being used
for one last time.

The bedrooms were tidy,
(Well except mine).

We still had to eat
so there was still stuff around
we needed a few chairs
or sit on the ground!

Peanuts was disturbed.
Something was on a roll

and the cat from next door
was poised to take control.

2 month snapshot

The last 2 months have been busy, as usual. Here are some of the major things we did.
Marianne and Luke came to visit. Played pool and ate.

Luisa from Germany arrived for her 12 month exchange. She is feeling colder than we are!

We took her to Michael's for lunch and to see the beach.

We went to Brisbane. Went up to Mt Coot-tha.

Llew graduated from his PhD.

I had a birthday.

Nice holiday at the beach in Scarborough.

Luisa made a version of schwartzwalder kirschtorte. Sorry Robin, it wouldn't post!

Llew made a fabulous rendition of Persian food. Well, he did have the best teachers. It was almost identical!

I had my PhD accepted and Mum and Dad sent flowers and a letter to Dr G E Mann.

So, that's your bloomin lot!
