And we're in!

Its been  2 weeks since me and the Mr moved into our flat, the move went great, we packed everything the night before and just spent the Friday (15th)  tidying up and getting rid of the rubbish that was hidden here there and every where, so much paper and a whole load hair bands i thought I'd lost, by 10am we'd finished now was the waiting game so we sat on make shift seats and drank tea, Half an hour later the estate agents called to say that we could go and collect the keys! (Its really happening! no backing out now)... So we packed the car with the 1st load and Lee went with his dad to get the keys, It took about 4 runs to get everything to the new place, all in all it took about 3hrs. Its a tiring job moving, But I'm so glad that we're in. Our 1st night was fine i was abit worried that i wouldn't settle (in my mums house there's always noise), but i was fine, i think the celebratory drink may have helped. Saturday we got a call from Lee's Dad saying he was going to take us out and get a new kitchen (Wow) and a bed! Woo!, So off we went, picked one out and it arrived Thursday (21st) as did our sofa that we got in a sale. So Lee decided it would be a good plan to get the old kitchen out before the new one arrived. So he took the Thursday off and proceeded to rip everything out.We'd gone to B&Q on the Wednesday and picked out paint and the flooring, So we had everything ready to go. Saturday (23rd) Lee and his step dad spent the morning laying the new floor and putting in new sockets and Saturday afternoon Lee filled in holes. you may be thinking "what did you do?" i made the tea and held things when needed and tidied up when they'd finished, abit pointless really when you have to sand down the walls to make everything smooth.. hey ho. So Monday and Tuesday we sanded down the walls and prepped the room ready for painting which we did last night. Fingers crossed we'll have our kitchen up and running early next week....... 

Heres a few photos!
