Well, Gentle Reader, I have moved. I have taken up residence with the AB in a tiny little second floor flat in an old Victorian on an island. We are moving along swiftly, having already put together the furniture, unpacked, and disposed of most of the boxes. I have a functioning office, which is good as I am running behind on my Etiquette & Espionage copy edits. Part of that office is a new standing desk! Have you any idea how hard nice looking, inexpensive, standing desks are to find? I ended up with a “bar” which works perfectly!
The first things to get unpacked? My shoes. Yes, before my computer. Priorities, priorities.
There are still kinks in the Relocation Operation and I’m still terribly busy running around finding curtains and such, but essentially I’ve moved. It was a bit of a saga with us negotiating which objects and clothing to purge.
I sat in the AB’s bed and pronounced judgement on shirts. The AB sat on my bed and pronounced judgement on dresses. All told I disposed of 8 paper bags of clothing, six pairs of shoes (the AB wanted me to get rid of more but I put my foot down – pun intended), and two boxes of kitchen stuff. It’s liberating.
Give me another couple weeks, please, and I will get back to more standard blogging then.
