Well, it's finally here. Moving day, hooray!
We went to Ikea today. Four hours later we emerged, bleary eyed and sweaty. In that time (with a 6 year old in tow) we managed to purchase only half of what we'll need to furnish our place but enough to live with for a few weeks. That was certainly a 2 person job though. Exhausted much?!
We came back to the hotel and the other two went for a swim whilst I packed our belongings BACK into the suitcases ready for tomorrow. We have until Sunday to be out of the hotel, but there's a lot of stuff to move and we haven't got a 'truck' as you know. We'll try to get it all done tomorrow.
At 8am we will meet the landlord at our apartment and Poppet and I will spend the day unpacking bits and washing dishes and pots and pans and waiting for the Ikea delivery men (must remember a tip for them, lots of stairs!). We'll crash at the hotel for one more night, enjoy the room service and buffet breakfast, and then commence our real Canadian life at last.
We also registered Poppet at school today and she can start Monday. It's so strange seeing all the kids running around in casual clothes, no uniforms here. My girl is so darn excited about school, and I'm pleased that the school seems nice and there's only 17 kids in her class.
That's all for now. I'll be signing out of the blog and probably Facebook as well (shock horror!) until we reach the other side. Fingers crossed the internet connection and cable are set up ok. Not happy waiting on modern convenience for too long.
See ya soon!
