New Townhouse After One Week

We've been in our new place for over a week now. We both really like the place, and even more now that it is starting to come together. During the week, we started organizing, cleaning things up, and arranging furniture, and over the weekend I started building some of our new IKEA furniture.

After complaining, asking nicely, and finally demanding, we had a cleaning crew visit us to deal with as many of the things they could. Most important to us where the high windows and light fixtures, banisters, bathroom fixtures, etc, as many of them were unreachable and others we just wanted done because they should be. In the end it wasn't perfect, but a lot better than before, and we will just take care of anything else on our own.

We still have no internet or phone as the cable lines have not been connected to the complex. I have yet to figure out whether the builder is just delaying, or whether there are actually technical / environmental hold-ups. If you call us and we don't pick up, please leave a message. We are still able to get our messages and will phone you back.

Overall, however, we really like the new place and look forward to finishing all of the work and settling in for some comfortable and peaceful living. I have photos of the furniture we're building, and will post a few when we can. We have internet access if we drive down to a local coffee shop with our laptop, so we can still get our email and play a few Scrabulous moves...
