The PAD!

Omg what a nightmare moving house is lol. I seriously thought i would be moved and unpacked in 24 hours. Wishful thinking. I started moving mid arvo on friday, its now tuesday and i still have stuff to unpack and hang, sigh. I literally feel like i have run not 1 but 2 marathons! Yes my body is feeling quite lean =)

The parts that drove me completely nuts were:

1. Building furniture (on my own, who needs a man!?). Thanks Super Amart for my (heavy) flat packed dining table, benches and bar stools.... I now have calluses on my hands and a couple of broken nails!

2. Cutting up cardboard: I was planning on dumping my boxes in the industrial bins at the shops but I've been warned that there are actually video cameras in place to catch crooks people out! What the!?

3. Electricals: So my dad drew me not 1 but 2 circuit diagrams of how i could connect the tv to the dvd player, switcher, vcr and set top box..oh and then he left me 20 sets of cables! Seriously, 1 diagram would have been enough, they were both just as confusing as each other. The mission took about 3 or 4 attempts and a lot of obscenities over a 4 hour period lol. In the end i wanted to cry somehow combined the two diagrams together, plugged the cables in wherever there was a hole and wallah, we had a picture! Did i mention i HATE cables?

That all aside...............

I LOVE my pad! Its SOOOOOOOOOOOO peaceful. I cant stop smiling. Its mine. I can do WHATEVER i want. I can blast my music, put stuff where i want it, not answer to ANYBODY... and most importantly walk around in my bra and undies!

Words can not explain how i feel =)


  1. Thanks babe, will post some pics tomorrow!

  2. Bravo Chelle! I am a bit of a princess when it comes to assembly of things and electrical. Lucky my hubby is an electrician and an all round handyman.

    Cool news on the unit. Glad you are lovin it. Obviously you have good thick blinds, or really hot neighbours though.......to be considering walking around in your undies!!! lol!!! Let's hope you have HOT single neighbours!

    Are you ready to live your life's next chapter??????? I bet it will be less turbulent.

    Have fun babe!

  3. Yay for you Chelle i can't wait till i purchase a place! Looking forward to seeing the pics and checking out your pad... There is no place like home!
