In the Middle of Chaos, Boxes, and More, we have news!!

Yes, we have found a new home, and will move in early December. Thanks to you all who have asked about any news,  we are all so happy. We will have about 5 weeks,  from moving out to moving in, staying with a friend, and some time to rest and   maybe get out and about for some photos. I will have a huge room for my quilting and sewing, Hugh will have a big garage for his machinery, Joyce will have a room that gets the early morning sunshine, and in time there will be new plants in the garden and some vegetable beds planted. Photos will follow once we have moved in. The young family there have a transfer with the NZ Defence Force, and I am sure will leave many happy memories, and I hope they find new friends down south.

Meantime here are some   photos from my archives

Hi,Nancy...somehow, as only in Blogland, I got lost from your page...I didn't blog much last year after I lost Mr. Sweet and it's taken a year for me to get back to blogging.
Just wanted to stop and say HELLO...

Kate said...

So glad you have found a suitable new home.

Clare said...

All the best for your shift. I am still hopeful my hubby will say yes to a move as well so I can have my sewing(studio) too.

Jenny said...

So pleased you have found a new home Jean, I know it was a bit of a worry with your moving date coming up soon. It will all work out, I'm sure.

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

I am so, so happy to hear that you have found the right home to move into. It sounds perfect!!

Julie Fukuda said...

With my space getting smaller and smaller with each move, I find it so very stressful. I'm so glad you have more space to look forward to. I think I would be excited about the possibility of a new garden ... but then, I would have to bring some of my old garden with me. Thanks for the up-date.

Congratulations on finding a new house that you can make your home! I can’t imagine trying to get used to a new house!

That is wonderful news! I am so glad that you have a new place!!! I love seeing that it is springtime there with lupines, daffodils, and fairy toadstools! I do hope that you get rest soon.

Carol Mattingly said...

Oh my goodness what exciting news. You must be thrilled. I know you can't wait to set up your new room and Hugh too. Be very careful moving and don't pull any muscles. I hope the time flies so you can be in your new home. Carol

Onwards and upwards Jean and well done to have found an exciting new abode. The hard, hard work will be worth it. But about that, be sure to pace yourselves. Take care and I am so happy for you!

Visiting with you this morning during a big rainstorm. Much prefer rain to snow at this time of year. Good luck with your move, and so happy to learn you will both have a designated space for your activities.
