Well, we're back in the land of the blogging!  Our internet was connected very quickly, which certainly makes a lot of things easier (namely, work!).

We have moved in to the house, albeit with just concrete under our tootsies!  The carpet has been scheduled for installation on Wednesday, and the flooring should arrive on Friday.  Having said that, Carpet Call has not returned any of our calls nor e-mails since last Tuesday, so it remains to be seen whether or not laying/delivery will, indeed, occur.  Suffice to say, we won't be call, call, calling the 'experts in the trade' ever again.  Neither will any of our friends.

Anyhoo, all that rubbish aside, we have enjoyed the first few days in the house.  I love the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry particularly.  Ha, you can tell where I spend most of my time!!!  The Great Room is also feeling more spacious WITH the furniture in, which I love.

It has been crazy busy around here, with lots of projects on the go.  Here are a couple of teasers...

Big Girl's Room

Little Girl's Room.  We started off strong, but haven't made any progress in the last five days!!!!
Without a floor, we have been unable to unpack to much, let alone style ANYTHING at all, so these photos will have to do you for a while.

Hopefully, I'll be able to share some pics later in the week.  Have a great one!!

    1. It is very frustrating, but awesome at the same time. This is home and we are more than happy to be here, even if the kids didn't have jumpers to take to school today!!!!

      Awesome progress on your house today, though!

  5. I said it before I like the wallpaper a lot. Can't wait to see it all done. And not to mention the stripy room!
    Did you have to move out from your "other place/rental" before the flooring was in? Just think it must be hard to move in and live and still have to wait to do anything because of the floor. Hope they come when promised.

    1. Thanks, Anette! Yep, for various reasons we had to move out as scheduled. The floors are down now, though, so all that drama is a (not so) distant memory. Mx

  6. Hope the experts in the trade get their act together so it's in as scheduled. Lack of communication is very frustrating. Love that wallpaper! Can't wait to see it all done.

    1. Thanks, TDM. I'm not sure in which trade they are experts - but it clearly isn't communication, ordering, stock management or sub-contractor management. Hahaha! We're getting there, hope to have some pics within the next week or so. M x
