Well we're in at last and slept here last night. It was sooooo nice sleeping in a real bed and the bed we got off Matt and Meri is sooo much better than our old bed. I didn't want to get up this morning, I felt like I was in heaven. There is a spa bath in the main bathroom and almost all the kids had to have a bath last night, even though it was 10 at night and they knew they couldn't put the bubbles on. I took photos and will post them as soon as I figure out how to transfer them directly from the card to Tim's laptop. The container, with our stuff, cost us more than we expected so we won't have proper internet for a couple of weeks, just Tim's wireless broadband, on his laptop. The phone gets connected on Tuesday afternoon. Yesterday was practically a full day in the car, getting here at 8 in the morning to wait for the container, unpacking that and then going and picking Tim's dads car up and then the trailer and then the bed, then bringing the bed here, having lunch at some stage during that run then taking the trailer and car back, going to Aunty Lesley's for our bedding and some clothes and food, picking up dinner (Krispy Kremes, how healthy) and finally getting home at about quarter to 10. We didn't even have time to set the kids beds up, they slept on mattresses. But at least they slept in their new home, which they've been begging for since the beginning of the week, even though we hadn't signed the lease and didn't have the keys. they're busy setting up the Wii at the moment, and arguing who gets first go. But as they're dressed and had breakfast I don't mind.
