On the move!!


Hooray!! We have finally got the keys to our new flat and moved the first load of boxes down this weekend. We've got both our flats for the whole of May so we'll take down our furniture gradually and then properly move at the end of the month.

Everything was as nice as we had remembered - Daniel is excited because he has got a nice big kitchen to 'create' in and I'm happy because there are huge wardrobes and lots of cupboards - we're easily pleased! Plus a bath to soak in after a long day!

I think I needed an estate agent's wide angle camera in order to fit the rooms into the photo, but you get the general idea!




Daniel's parents are here to visit for the week, so it was nice to show them the new flat. We also spent a very wet, cold afternoon watching the Chalmers Cortège which is the graduation parade for students from Chalmers University. It was pouring with rain all afternoon and all the students looked a bit miserable marching round in the rain!

Please don't send the rain this way - we've had a couple of beautiful, if somewhat cool spring days.

How exciting to be moving into a new flat and into a new town. I hope you settle in really quickly and enjoy Gothenburg. It sounds like May will be hectic, but it will be worth it. Your new place looks lovely!

Oh your new flat looks wonderful. A fresh new beginning sounds like so much fun.

I sent you a little present and it is on it's way. Mail is so slow...hopefully you will have it by June.lol

Take care,
Connie

Your new flat looks lovely - and it's often the simple pleasures that are the best!
