So, I’ve moved

I really can’t deny it anymore, because I am so well moved that I have started working again. Le sigh. I managed to get some time off between moving and working, mainly due to Beau also being at home for a few days. It was pretty much awesome to be hanging out with him.

It’s funny, because in some ways, I’ve moved to end up back in the same place. I’m back working in the same place I was at and back in the same house I was in. We’re even back in the same bedroom we were in before. There are definite changes though. For one thing, the house is now my and Beau’s house, whereas before it was my and Muggle’s house and our flat, I guess. There is still stuff we want to do around the house, eg electrician still needs to come and do a bunch of rewiring (and repair our oven), builder still needs to come and fix up the kitchen ceiling, insulation needs to be sourced and sorted, and I personally need to do some potting and planting (garlic, strawberries and orangeberries). I do think though, that when you come into our house, you feel the difference between it now, being owned and lived in by a couple versus to then, when it was owned and lived in by sisters (plus various friends and lovers). It’s nice that there is a definite difference.

I’m back at work, but this time I’m not planning to save and then stop work to go overseas. I’m planning to save and then stop work to have a baby. Being pregnant is a pretty big change and getting bigger each day, it feels like. It’s quite fun going back to the old work place. There is some new staff and many new students, but enough remember me (and fondly) that I feel really welcome. In some ways I feel sorry for the “new” staff. Who *is* this person who has come waltzing in and seems to know everyone? But then, I’m used to being that person after going away to Uni and coming back to hang out with my highschool friends. Various “new” friends have commented on the oddness of it.

Anyhoo, I guess we should probably have a house warming sometime, especially while it is so cold. It’s just, we’ve spent so much time tidying the place up, I don’t really want a large group of people coming and messing it up (I have a big hate against finding beer bottle caps tucked around the place later on). I’m sure I’ll get over it soon. Maybe when I’ve managed to get a sewing desk and tidied up the spare room. Still weeks away no doubt.
Oh yeah, and I have a new blog. It’s like the old blog, but you know, new 🙂

Point of Fashion: Comfy, Comfy work pants
Current Obsession: Being warm, did I mention I got a new duvet? So good.

    You’re pregnant? Wow, cool! And how did I miss that?

    Seems like a lot of people I know are pregnant at the moment. 🙂

    Yay for a new blog!

    I am very keen to come and see your new ‘couplefied’ house. Dom can rampage through and alert you to all the potential hazards you’ll need to baby proof 🙂 Maybe you’d be up for a visit in the holidays some time?

    Hey, your blog ate my comment!

    Oh no, it didn’t. IT just didn’t show up for a while.

    My bad.

    Orangeberries?! Jealous.
    You could always have a non-beer type flatwarming.. Like a tea party 🙂

    I am commenting on your first blog post! Woop woop.

    Are you importing the history from stonesoup over?

    Luke, I have to make sure it’s good and working.

    Debz, I definitely hope you come and visit. Already have had 3 yr olds and 11mth old over, so have some idea of things we need to fix. Luckily have over a year, right? Also, apparently I get to approve comments or something. Could be a drag.

    Adrexia, I’m not hugely pregnant, but have little baby bump now.

    Muggle, I *have* got a lot of tea cups… Apparently orangeberries aren’t great for fruiting, but when they do, they taste like orange cordial!

    Jenni, Nah, I’m going to get my own copy of the history, but don’t feel the need to share it with others.

    Giffy giffy giffy! You are back in the land of blog! 🙂
    I am excited by this 🙂
    Also excited to see your couplefied house at some point when Jas and I are both well. I’m so terrified of giving illness to pregnant or sick people at this point.
