I know I seem to be complaining about the cold at the moment – sorry but it is taking quite a lot to adjust to. Here is a picture taken from our front door the other morning and I am sure it was close to the minus figures in temperature, well probably not but it felt that way.
Things seem to be taking quite a bit longer than we initially anticipated but we are getting there and home is starting to feel like home again. 🙂 We are down to 483 million items on the “To Do” list – oh, and that excludes the garden.
Sadly, my stove top is not working nicely either so we are in the process of seeing if we need new switches or plates and getting prices for replacement parts – thankfully my mom is still here and looking after our dinners. The most I have cooked so far is a bacon and egg breakfast and chicken livers for lunch. 🙂
A huge thank you to my friend Cindy over at The Only Cin who gave me the most wonderful advice of scattering our kitties litter in the garden to prevent them straying and it worked beautifully! Our fur children still go walk about but don’t venture too far and come home very happy after exploring and our other cat seems to be tolerating them a little more each day too.
I had a quick walk through a couple of stores while we were out replacing our vacuum cleaner and a few other necessity items the other day and I was amazed at how much is available on the shelves. I had forgotten that there was so much to choose between and I am still looking forward to my aisle for aisle walk through in Woolies – I have been holding back until we get properly settled so that I can come straight home to the kitchen with my purchases to get creative.
I promise to get back to reading all your blogs this week. I hope I haven’t missed too much!
Have a happy week.
