Moving House…


Moving House…

As many of you already know I have spent the last week moving house. My husband and I have moved many times so we are pretty good at it by now. We are pretty ruthless at dispensing of what we really don’t need so that it does not have to be packed and unpacked.

Why did we move? I wanted to be closer to my grandchildren. My first is expected to arrive in just a few short weeks now.

One benefit of moving is that I / we usually end up with something new. In this move I ended up with a new desk. It was a nightmare putting it together, and I am really good at such things. The reason I chose the desk I did is because it is part of the same collection as my standing desks. Now everything goes together and looks good together. Why did I get a new desk? The old one will not fit in my new office space. The room is like a loft and has low slanted ceilings. No way my old tall desk has a place in it.

Admittedly it is all a bit of a mess yet, but at least I can work now.

I also ended up with a new wireless printer. I have wanted one for a long time now. 🙂

I am really far behind on commenting on other blogs. Truth be told I have not commented on any blogs during this past week. All my energy has been invested in getting my office, and house in general, up and running again. I thank you for your patience and I most especially thank you for continuing to comment despite my absence.

    I have been wanting to try a standing desk.

    Moving can be a pain. We don't do it like we did when we were first married. Heck, we lived at our last place for about 12 years.

    You have a coffee cup with your Avatar on it! That's pretty sweet. The standing desk definitely appeals to me. I'll be moving this summer, and the two L-shaped IKEA desks my husband and I picked up when we moved down South are going to be an interesting fit when we go back to our old house, where the bedrooms are definitely smaller than where we are now…

    I hadn't heard of a standing desk before reading this, so now I'm curious. What is the advantage or benefit?

  5. Like you I have moved numerous times in my life so I understand how you feel. Hope you settle in very well and that you really enjoy being with your grandchildren.

    As you know, I hate moving. The one good thing about moving is you get to purge all the accumulated crap and start fresh. I am so excited for you as far as your new office setup. It is going to be way cool when you have it the way you want it. 🙂
