Moving Day is Looming

Well, we are moving to Milkenunny this Wednesday and Thursday, all going well.  The truck is booked and the house is getting packed up.  There has been a lot of rain lately and we doubt we can get the truck all the way up to our house so we will probably hire a trailer to help with the ferrying of the household contents up our driveway.  Such a fun job to look forward to!  Fine weather would be nice but I think the forecast is for some showers so we will have to wait and see.

We got the water happening at  last.  We rolled out 300 metres of 1.5″ rural poly from the creek at the top of the block and connected it to the 200 metres of the 1″ we already had to finish running it to the house.  The water pump that we were priming the pipe with decided to play up when we wanted to use it but Kim managed to fix it up and we finally got the water running.  It flows at about 28 litres per minute which is good.  Kim finished connecting up the shower at 9pm on Saturday night, just in time to test it out and have a nice hot shower before bed.  We still have to connect up the washing machine and kitchen, but that must wait until after we move now.

The boys slept up in the manor for the first time this week.  It is still pretty primitive up there- no wall lining yet – but they thought they would like to try out the extra space.  The battery powered electricity worked well as did the pot belly stove.  However the Dusky robin who is nesting in their sitting room thought it was a bit of an imposition.  She gets in and out through a gap in the corner of the roof which we have decided we will have to leave open until we see if her two speckled eggs hatch.  Then to add to their “nature experience” they had a visit from a bat around 11.30pm.  It was flitting from room to room for a while until it finally settled down hanging above their beds.  🙂  It was gone by the morning, much to my disappointment, as I would like to have seen it too.

Anyway, it is late and I better go.  We will only have the mobile phone and wireless internet on our laptop once we move, as we are still awaiting our satellite internet connection.  Neither of those will work on our block so we will have to travel into town when we want to communicate with the world for a little while, but I will still keep in touch.
