The quickest of updates

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 27 - 2012

I’m updating this from my phone, the wordpress app is woefully lacking in both usability and functionality, so a quick textual update is the best I can manage.  We’ve moved in to the new place now and the carpets came up a treat with the Rug Doctor, so a big thank you to your lovely selves for saving me about £80 in carpet cleaning fees (that’s topped up my Boots fund!).  The neighbours are an odd bunch…. the ones below us are mega keen on Country and Western – I’m a bit of a closet fan myself, so was secretly pleased that they’d at least be playing stuff I’m happy to tap my feet along to…. until they had a full-on karaoke hoedown. FFS.

The other neighbour seems to have a bit of a voracious appetite, and we’re not talking KFC.  I’m just grateful that we have a one man in, one man out situation.

Other than that, we’re settling in pretty well – although it does look like someone’s walked through the door and vomited IKEA.  Gotta start somewhere no?

We’re due to get a phoneline connected on the 9th August, blog posts will be extremely few and far between until then but as soon as I’m a bit more settled, hopefully by the end of next week – I’ll be able to use my phone’s 3G connection to power my PC’s internet and I may well be able to get some updates done then – heaven knows I’m missing the crap out of blogging.

Much love, me x

  1. I was just wondering this morning where you were! :) Completely forgot that moving takes quite a bit of time!

    Good luck with house things! I am glad that the rug doctor worked out (i’ll have to keep that in mind for the future!) I hope setting up everything at home won’t be too much of a chore!

    It’s good to hear you’re settling in well. How does Leila like her new home? Re: IKEA, I’m still surrounded by IKEA vomit. I seem to have spent the last 15 years collecting it!

  5. Hey, honey! Good to hear you’re setting in okay (or, like, mildly okay). Fingers crossed that everything keeps moving along on this side of “okay”!

    (Also, I really hope you’re not living next to someone who’s re-enacting The Secret Life of a London Callgirl (Callboy?). Late-night police raids are never any fun, or so I hear.)

  9. Oh good times. Laughed when I read your “voracious appetite, and we’re not talking KFC” statement. Hope you’re getting all settled in over there.
