99% out = 68% in

Well, we have moved. Pretty much. Mostly. Sort of.
We are mostly out of the apartment. There is the piano, a small table lamp and some bike/telescope stuff left and that’s about it.
The day off went well enough. The cable guy was very efficient and we were up and running in about an hour. So Gary’s threats were largely ignored. There is more down time coming as I move from the hall way to the desk, I’m sure I will get caught one of these days, but for now, the web site going down and up has passed SMS free.
The weather station is slated to be put up over xmas. I think I found the brackets yesterday. Its ‘funny’, but I know exactly who to see and where to go to do this simple task in Ballarat, but here, its turned in to a real hassle….. Anyway, like I said, I think I found some hardware that will work. I hope to buy the parts in the next few days (before all the shops shut for xmas) and then get it up and running as soon as I can. I want to catch a full year of weather data to compare with whats happening back home. We have about 1-2 inches of rain forcast for xmas day, so I am not going to be on the tile roof in that! I have plenty to do setting up the computer and garage, so in some ways, if its pouring rain, it will be nice to be busy inside.
No photos of the actual move with Steve, we were flat out between 7am and 4pm. The house is a sea of boxes and furniture.
Freddy is feeling a little better. She is over at the apartment this morning doing a load and rough clean. The kids have the next two weeks off school, so they are just milling about. Amy has some school work she needs to be reviewing, and Terry wants to spend some more time on his Freebord (I would link to the website, but its truly appalling. Its pretty much a skateboard with shopping trolley wheels mounted in the middle. Thus you can go sideways down a hill, like a snow board… Their slogan is ‘Snowboard the streets’). I have cut back their internet time, so I am not their favorite person at the moment, but hopefully it will pay off in the end.

So, we are 99% out of the apartment, and 68% unpacked and settled into the house. Im really looking forward to having some time off over the next few days.
