This week is going to be a little crazy.
After a little failed communication (ringing me all friday afternoon but with one wrong number difference) with our potential removals company, the contract for the delivery of all our worldly possessions was quickly signed and paid for yesterday. The removalists arrived at our Brisbane residence where our stuff has been stored thismorning, at 7am.
So, right now all of our things, our bed, all my teas which I’ve been missing, my tea cup collection (which I had to cull and give a whole heap to my parents for them to store, sob!), Isla’s collection of Dinosaur Train Dino’s, our juicer (yes, it is that dear to my heart) and all our photos, are on a truck a d should be setting off on their way to us any minute.
The truck will arrive friday at our new place and we’ll be off! Unpacking and settling in to our new apartment, our new home, in our new city. The next stage of this new adventure.
But, before we move in and unpack, we have to have Isla’s 4th birthday! Which is tomorrow! I know every parent says it, but seriously where did those last four years go!?
My Mother-In-Law and Sister-In-Law have arrived in Melbourne from Brisbane today, to spend a few days here for Miss Fours birthday. We will be exploring the city a bit with them and heading to the Museum, like any good museum, they have some dinosaur skeletons, so Ofcourse it’s the perfect birthday great for Isla! (if your knew to our family, welcome, our daughter is obsessed with dinosaurs and I’m sure will be a genius paleontologist one day, if she ever decides to aspire to be anything other than an actual dinosaur).
Then, yes it continues! Then, on Friday, the same day we move all our stuff into our new apartment, it’s also my husbands birthday!! Two days after Isla’s. He’s essentially still 23, cause the poor guy pretty much hasn’t had a birthday to himself since Dino Girl came along. Oh and last week was our wedding anniversary and my brothers birthday, so by the time we get around to Husbands birthday, we’re bday weary, broke and have probably already celebrated him and his ‘special’ day collectively with Dino Girl. Which we will again do tomorrow night, at our new local pub.
It’s wood fires pizza special night. Your welcome Husband.
So, I’m going to make a cuppa and pull out the princess wrapping paper cause this purple and pink scooter will not wrap itself.
I’ll post photos of the Dino cake I’m making for Dino Girl later in the week, when I have a little time, maybe in May…..
