The snow has finally gone and after weeks of cold and damp weather, the sun is shining and it is actually hot!  I'm not sure how long this weather is going to last, so we are making the most of it for now.

The trees are in bud and the maples in our new garden are just starting to go green.  Did I mention the garden?  Well, it needs a lot of work, so once we eventually finish unpacking boxes (a long job), we will have plenty to keep us occupied this summer.

We spent a busy weekend trying to make it look more like home and less like a warehouse!  We are making slow progress.

We're In

Our move did not go according to plan and it was delayed by two days, but we were finally in by Sunday 5th May.  As I went back to work on Monday, I had no time to unpack.  Spending the week walking around boxes and not being able to find anything was frustrating to say the least.

Things are slowly taking shape and the pile of boxes has now gone from the kitchen, although the pile in the dining area (above) remains, complete with treadmill, which proved too big to get down into the basement.  It looks like we may have to dismantle it first.

The kitchen will be nice once everything is in place.  The rest of the house is still in a state of upheaval, but at least we are in.  

We like the neighbourhood and hope to get outdoors and do something with the garden this coming weekend.
