Greetings from Boxburb, Boxville, in the Kingdom of Boxlandia.

Ok, this unpacking process may take a while, not least because I have to paint some of the wardrobes before we start shoving stuff into them. Still, I'm liking our new house a lot - there's work to do, but the basics are all there. And some of the little things are good, e.g. the light switches are generally where I expect them to be, and rwrylsin and I can both be doing stuff in the kitchen and not tripping over each other too much.
The train trip to work takes only a little bit longer than at the previous place - which is pretty good considering we're almost twice as far from my workplace.
I cycled in today, and had a very good run in (19.11km, 38min30). Unfortunately, the ride home was closer to 50 minutes, and felt like hard work. I don't think I'll be riding every day just yet - at least until the mornings are a bit warmer than 5°C (Shrinkage ? I had to send out a search party ! :-o ).
Anyway, life in the new place is good, and I suspect we'll soon be on first name terms with the staff of the nearby hardware store ... and furniture stores ... and bike shop ... and electronics stores ... and outdoor store ... and possibly even the pizza place.
Current Mood: relaxed

Its a great house. I like your strange stone steps which remind me of the old house I used to rent. And all the creepers and plantage. It has character. The photos dont give much idea of room sizes though - is it roomy?

By the standards of the modern McMansions being built now, most rooms might be considered quite cosy. By sensible measures they're really quite spacious.
Downstairs I think the ceilings measured about 9 feet high, which sort of makes the rooms seem smaller until you put in furniture and realise there is loads of space left.
Upstairs you could probably just squeeze a double bed into even the smallest bedroom - although Australians call that a single. ;) There will be photos of actual rooms once we dismantle the walls of boxes.
