    Talking Our container has arrived

    After a 9 week wait (I think) our stuff was finally delivered today. I can now sleep on a proper bed at last - no more air mattress for me!! OH is really pleased - he now has about 10 years supply of Marmite as well as a 3Kg jar of UK Nescafe Gold Blend. So he now has his marmite & coffee - he is set up for the day. So far it seems everything has arrived in one piece - there are a few scratches from when the stuff was packed in the UK but not enough to warrant claiming on the insurance - however we have yet to unpack a lot of the boxes. The boys are busy trying to organise their rooms and DD has yet to come home from work. The number of boxes she has is more than all of us together. Well no-one will be bored for a while!!

    Yay Bet it is great to be re-united with all your stuff. Hope it helps you feel more at home here and doesn't make you pine more for the UK and all that you know there. Will keep you all busy for a while, espeschially the kids.

    I can't wait for ours to come- it's been about 11months since we saw most of our stuff as we packed most things up before we moved into the FIL in January.

    Anyway heres to a great nights sleep in a real bed for you and Adrian

    Yay! Are you feeling a little more settled now?

    So DD finally has her books again? She was starting to go through withdrawals when I was there. Thought she'd knock over a bookstore for a good read.

    It's nearly time to pull out the Christmas decorations. Now where did those boxes go?...

    Nearly all has been unpacked now and it has been lovely to sleep in my own bed at last. DD has got her books at last so she is a happy bunny. The boys have their games and PC and are really happy. The house seems so small now - just got to find room to put it all now.
