Wednesday 10th June 2015, Caboolture.
We have now moved into our new house, well we actually moved in on Saturday, or officially Friday, so we have settled in rather well so far. We have parked the caravan in the driveway and have moved the bed mattress from the van into the house to sleep on the floor until our new bed arrives on Friday. Most other things have also been moved from the van into the house, and somebody is now saying “How did all that fit into the van”. All other appliances have been purchased and installed, well the essentials anyway, and what is now needed can wait until we can afford them. All is good at the moment and it is enjoyable having the comfort of a home again. It is taking us a bit of time to get used to the surroundings so far, such as road noise, different bird sounds, light coming in the blinds early in the morning etc. but we did get a little more sleep this morning, and I am sure things will improve with our new bed arriving on Friday. I have abandoned the moving in today and have gone to my usual day at the museum just for a break as I have been rather exhausted the past few days, old age does ‘SUCK’, and Linda said she would prefer a day without me under foot as well. It will be interesting in a couple of weeks though, as Linda is going back to Melbourne for her usual grand-kid fix and medical checks and will be leaving me on my own for nearly a whole month. I guess I will have to adapt, or pack up the van and go somewhere for company.
