Working full time doesn't leave a lot of time for unpacking but very, very slowly things are starting to find homes. I figure we intend to be in this house until we are carried out so we really have all the time in the world to make it perfect. I'm going to try to enjoy the journey rather than stress that isn't all immediately spot on.
My aim is to put away one box of stuff a day which means it is a little less daunting. Surfer Boy also seems to have set himself a target each day and yesterday's task was to build me a shelf in the kitchen - I didn't want brackets over the tiles so we decided on a box. When I got home last night it was made, painted, and installed. Perfect, now my coffee mugs have a home.
