Just wanted to write and say that Zsolt and I are moving soon. In preparation for this move, I’ve taken up a secondary residence in the IKEA fabric section. So far I’ve recovered the headboard for the bed, recovered the dining room chairs (we don’t have a dining room, these will be in the kitchen, but nevertheless I like to think classy), recovered two sofas with slip covers, and made four pillow slip covers. BAM!
I was contemplating sewing some drapes, but have now reached the ‘sick of sewing’ point and think we’ll just pick some up pre-made.
There are so many little things to think about: insurance, internet (about 3x more expensive than England), toilet brush, shower curtain, broom, coat hanger, packing, bubble wrap, lighting, truck rental, lease signing, bus routes, fridge stocking, etc!
And this week I’m off for two lovely days to Toronto for the Facing Cancer Together Award of Honour luncheon. Look Good Feel Better Canada is celebrating 20 years of making women feel normal (and pretty!) during treatments, and so have introduced this Award. I’m on the recipient list amongst some rather impressive people, so this should be good. 🙂
In the meanwhile, back to packing, sewing and spending of money. Yay! (Boo for the money bit. Ikea should just give me all the pretty fabrics . . . yeah, that’s a totally reasonable idea.)
