100 days left..

Someone posted on Facebook the other day that it was 100 days left til Christmas. Well, I'm working on something using these four colours. Can you guess what it is?

Music fun from YouTube

I came over this video that a friend of mine had linked to on Facebook this morning, to three girls in a car, making an overview of parts of the music history from the past 70++ years. I thought it was hilarious, so I went to YouTube to see if they had any more fun videos. 

The first video is the music history one.

And the second one is Bohemian carsody - I actually saw this one last year, I think. 

Have a wonderful Friday!

Need of an update..

I really need to update my list of Moomin mugs.. After our trip to Finland this summer (oh, wait, I haven't blogged about that yet, have I..?) my collection grew with a couple of mugs - I didn't really see just how many I had until we were packing and unpacking. I might slightly agree with hubby that we (ahem.. I) have quite a few of them.. 

I'm thinking about keeping the list in the original post - or making a new one on a separate page (like I did with the  swaps and SALs that I've participated in). What would be easiest to update, give the best overview - and not make it look too much like I'm hoarding..?

The chaos of early August..

It's been close to four weeks since our move, and even though we're not done unpacking and getting things organised (under the stairs seem to be a good place to put boxes unable to be unpacked until things are set ut) it's a liveable situation, and things are going pretty good.

A and I are out walking almost every day, unless it's extremely heavy rain. Which has happened a couple of times now. We still go out every day, we need to pick up P from kindergarten anyway, but we'll still stay indoor until that time if the rain is too heavy..

Looking back, I think a lot of things have come together and are working out pretty good here. I remembered that I had a couple of photos on my phone from those moving days.

P's old room.
The complete chaos that was P's old room the days before the moving van came. Everything we packed ended up in his room until we were done. (Luckily, he was not at home at that time. He got to spend some days with hubby's parents instead.)

The last sunset...
On Sunday, our last day in the apartment, the sun graciously showed us a lovely sunset. At the time it felt very strange to suddenly say goodbye to our home for the past five years - and build a new one in a place we barely knew..

Sack upon sack in our new bedroom..
So far, things are working out pretty good. We've had some bad mornings (hubby ended up coming late for work, P didn't want to go to kindergarten, etc) but things are adjusting and we are getting to know the area, the neighbours and feeling more and more at home in our house. It helps when our things find their spot - and I can't wait for the day when our pictures are up on the walls, and the last box is flattened and put away!

We talked about moving a few months ago, after buying the house, and agreed that this would be the last time we moved - until the kids have finished school (unless something extreme comes up). I think we both liked that idea.
