Boxed in and loving it!

Currently I am surrounded by boxes, with more coming and every time I tape one shut I give a little happy dance.  Although it looks chaotic, we are actually being quite systematic, and looking forward to unpacking in the new place — tomorrow!

So there’s not much to report here.  We have met with our builders for our final walk-through and expect most things to be done by the time we are unpacking.  I’ll update once we are in the new place and have internet connections once more.

I’ll catch up with you when we are moved into the laneway.  I am excited beyond description about this step of our journey.
