For weeks now, my house has not been running as per normal. I have been preoccupied with winding things down here, having to organize, de-clutter and pack, and setting up things over there, from here, as much as I can. Seriously, what would we do without the Internet??
So Them Two's schools are sorted out, the rental house is finalized, and the furniture pretty much shopped for at Ikea online. The first round of Stuff Going Over There is done. These are stuff we pretty much need as soon as we get there - bedsheets, towels, pots and pans, bowls and plates, forks and spoons, etc. And yes, of course, some yarn, to keep me sane.

According to plan and floorplan, I might just be able to acquire myself my very own craft room when we move. Yes, triple-yay!
Admittedly, it will be a box-room. By "box-room", I mean approximately 2m X 2m. But, hey, I'm not complaining.
In it will be my worktable, my supplies and materials, my boxes of yarn. And of course, I hope to squeeze in a chair... :)

And let me tell you, it is a relief that the school holidays are over, and Those Two are back at school. I have had to put on hold my Driver's Refresher Course, crucial dental appointments and exercising the usual housecleaning regime, over the week-long mid-term break.
Instead, I have had to spend an entire day at Universal Studios with family, launch into 2 blanket projects (one for each of Them Two), spend an entire day at Ikea with Them Two planning for the house in Wimbledon, attend a Hari Raya party with old buddies, star in a homemade Star Wars spoof, have a reunion lunch with my brother's ex-wife, police Maya with her revision, and deal with the dramatics of Ruhi's front tooth falling out.
