We've finally got all our stuff moved to the new place and are ready to hand the keys over to our ex-landlady. And stuff...wow, do we have too much of it. We are going to have to do some serious triage before moving back to France. This place is significantly smaller than the other, despite having one more bedroom, and there is hardly any storage space. Makes for lots of headaches as we try to figure out where things should go. We bought ten cheap shelving units from Ikea and still have to put in more shelves, buy a hutch for our dishes, and buy/make worktables.
We'll get there, though, and in time, I hope, to be able to relax into the holidays in this new home.
