Nearly There

We're in! It sure is lovely to be back in our own house after two years. The tenants left the house looking okay - there are a few small issues that are annoying and irritating but nothing heartbreaking (thank goodness) - but the yard looks terrible. There is so much work to be done and it will literally take me months to get it all done. BUT... we're home.
I have four boxes left to unpack (and they are full of teapots!) and my bedroom to finish sorting out and then I'm done. Not too bad considering we moved on the weekend (with the help of some very wonderful friends who we quite literally could not have doe without - thanks guys, you know who you are!), I spent several hours cleaning the other house, I've nearly finished unpacking and have already fitted in a trip to Port Red Dirt this week.
What have you been up to?

Good job! We've been in our place for over 4 months and there're still boxes everywhere!

So glad to read you are now back in your own home after time away. It must be a relief hey?

What have I been up to? Well, nothing much actually. Besides enjoying this beautiful Cairns winter weather. *hello sunshine*

LOL Chantalle. We had to do it quickly, otherwise our two 'helpers' get into it all and then we'd never have found anything!

Yes, Iris. We're back in our own house now. We rented it out while we were up in the red dirt and had to wait for their lease to finish before we could have it back.

It is a relief, Melody. Now there's just lots of gardening to do!

LOL Nomes! Were you going to come help???? Are you still heading this way in August?
