Moving

Well, it's all been confirmed. I got the job in Wellington and I'm moving.. that is, when I find somewhere to live! I have seen a few I like but unless I"m done there to view them it's a waste of time as they're gone the next day. So next weekend I'm off to the big smoke to start looking. I'll stay a few days and work from the office so that I'm on the spot if I find one I like. The rents are huge compared to Palmy so I'm hoping to get one handy to work so I can save petrol. I need the exercise too!
Last night I went to my last Committee meeting. Eeek... It's so hard saying goodbye but they will manage without me haha. I'm not going to get 'involved' in a new club straight away, I think I'll enjoy the meetings and 'cruise' for a little while till I know where I belong.
So tomorrow, Saturday, sort and tidy. My house looks like the burglar's have been and the removal guys are coming thursday to look at what I've got. I also need to start cleaning windows and the stove.. oooohhhh yuck!

Tonight it's feet up and sorting through my COLLECTION of patchwork magazines and photocopied patterns. I'm sure I don't need all 11,001 of them!

It will be a new adventure! Imagine all the new quilting stores and all those different fabrics...you probably don't need them but shopping....such fun.
Good luck with the new job and new friends...how exciting..

Huge Congratulations to you Karen!
I knew you would get the job.
Well done my friend.

Good luck with the packing and preparing for your new life in Wellington. Also much luck with finding a place to live in.

It will be sad to say goodbye to Palmi but hey a new job, life and friends will be great.

I wish you all the best.
