new digs

my new house

it's very unfamiliar, my things look quite un-at-home. We {my friends and family} have made lots of little trips this weekend, filling our cars with boxes and bits and pieces and taking them over.
My new house is only a suburb away from the old one. So we are now in Tarragindi, it's very pretty and leafy. There's a park at the end of our street and a bowls club just around the corner! 
I am discovering all of the little characteristics of our new home, such as this faux lux laminate {pictured below - you will notice it} in the handwashing room. Despite the bathroom being tiny there is a very generously sized room next to the WC with a basin in it and that's about it . I'm calling it a mudroom from here on in because I've always wanted one. I am sure it will be handy for dumping stuff in, school bags etc, so exotic!  
A removalist will come on Tuesday to bring all the big stuff and that will be our first night. 
My back hurts and I think my brain is hurting too! So much still ahead but I am looking forward to setting everything up and making it look pretty, that's the fun part, pity there's so much blah, blah blah to go through to get there.

We went to Sunnybank Hills shopping centre on the weekend. My sister Catherine organised for Liam to go to a Manga workshop at the library because that is the kind of thing he is very much into and afterwards we did a teency bit of shopping at the Asian Supermarket. We probably only make it there a couple of times a year and it's a bit of a treat because there is so much cool stuff!
I like just about everything because of the packaging, I really could spend hours looking at it all.
Mostly today I bought sweets and tea, Liam bought noodles, condiments and he loves the drinks, he got some Calpis this time.

These White Rabbit candy taste a bit like Milkos,
beautiful packaging.

These are brown sugar caramels and are divine and this little box is my favourite. 

 If you like ginger, these are the best ginger candy ever! sweet and hot! 
Once again the packaging is an equal part of the enjoyment for me.

There are about a gazillion Asian grocery shops in Sunnybank, Brisbane.
My boys love going there and nothing's too expensive, our little excursion was a sweet end to our school holidays. Today the boys are back and I am packing boxes as we have a new home to move into at the end of the week. Man it's been a stressful couple of weeks trying to find a place to rent. I know moving house is a pretty foul job but I feel like the hardest bit is over and I can just get on with it now that everything is set in place. Wish me luck!

Easter Printables

Well, I had some grand plans to make some new fabulous easter printables for you this year but I am completely and utterly not all over it... however, did you know you can still download my Easter tags from last year? They are still just as cute so if you would like and are needing something of the sort, 
hop to it!
They are free, please share the link!

p.s I keep writing "eater" instead of "Easter"... chocolate on the brain much? terrible

a sort of homecoming

no two for tuesday today... I have been giving my attention over the last couple of weeks to my impending move and it's pretty much all I can think about. My sister and her husband spent this weekend moving house too and we all helped. I am dropping in to her house early tomorrow morning before work to say goodbye for the last time. My heart will break just a little, so many happy memories, it was a big part of my life. I am taking heaps of photos back at mine before I pack everything away. I didn't want to move in at first but I have grown to love this place, it's been good to us too. I have owned 1 house and lived in about 13 since I was 21... that's a little over 15 years. It's has been good because I've travelled a lot and had some really different experiences but I'm a tad over moving now. I need to take more pictures of the little details because they are the parts that I miss the most.
