Thank you everyone! Alas I wasn’t allowed to take Philip :))

I am utterly exhausted but the removal men and my parents have been amazing.

I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight in my Setting Plaster room 😍

I am exhausted 😂

I’ve unpacked approx 1.5 rooms. That’s pretty much two days’ solid work.

I have far too much crap and it’s compounded by the seasons changing since I moved out, plus being completely different clothes sizes in summer 2022, summer 2021 and summer 2020. I have sacks and sacks of stuff that’s either out of season or too big.

Plus I’m having to unpack boxes labelled for rooms that no longer exist, so some “dining room” stuff is for the kitchen, some is for the living room etc. Then there was the huge hallway cupboard which no longer exists :panic:

However I do have a bed, a shower and broadband so I’ll get there. And my table fits perfectly in the kitchen.

Your bedroom looks so lovely and calming! I really love the setting plaster in there, it looks so good.

Moving and unpacking is really no joke, it's really good that you can take the time to sort through stuff though. Honestly, I still have boxes from the US that I need to sort through :uhh:

Hurrah for the kitchen table fitting!

Your house looks gorgeous nine, and don’t worry about unpacking, we moved here is the december and I don’t think we were fully unpacked till early Feb, you need to find where things “fit”

Ah thank you! I already have as I moved in yesterday. It’s so nice having my bedroom back.

Back down to earth with a bump now. I have spent the morning so far sorting out aggressive debt repayments (it's all at 0% so I am preserving some savings and paying the debts off before the 0% period ends).

Next step is making sure the kitchen is in the right state to be painted on Monday. Oh, and more unpacking/decluttering (and work).

You're an amateur Jude - I still have a couple of boxes lurking from a January move :)) Unpacking is the biggest ballache.

Hope the finishing touches all go well Nine, and that you finally get some time to enjoy it!

Do they have to take the doors off to paint them, Nine? This is probably a silly question :))

Not long to go now! Please show us a picture of the kitchen when it’s completely done :nosy:

They should. Only my front door was painted though (the rest are wood [indoors] or aluminium [outdoors]). My moronic decorator did not take off my front door to paint it, or indeed open her eyes. It’s fixed now though.
