Boxes, zombies and lots of last minute travel - There's always time for a book
Boxes, zombies and lots of last minute travel
1. Train trip to Amsterdam that we had planned before we knew we were moving was relaxing and fun. Lots of walking around and sitting in cafes.
2. A friend’s wedding last weekend at Robin Hood’s Bay – lovely ceremony, wood fire in a cozy lounge, good company and lots of dancing
3. A lot of English trees turn yellow rather than orange or red in autumn. Although this is less spectacular at a glance, I have come to appreciate the golden glow it creates on a sunny afternoon in the woods.
4. Hearing my niece talk to herself and giggle every time I speak to my sister now. She is one happy little baby.
5. The house is littered with boxes that are half filled (or in the case of the bicycle boxes, are moved from one place to another in a fruitless search to find a place they do not block access to something useful like the washing machine or front door). Strnagely I feel fairly organised.
6. Everything booked for the journey home (via Asia) in less than three weeks!
7. We actually remembered the clocks were going back in time to have an extra hour's sleep in the morning. Bliss!
8. Cute little zombie trick or treaters at the door!

More lists up as usual at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast!

Yay for happy weeks. I want to go to Amsterdam again.

OMG you can read the new Miles online! I just posted the link. I am so dying to have someone to talk to it about.

ahaha, we didn't get any trick or treaters.

I am going to wait to read Cryoburn as a book sorry! Prefer hard copy for a first read - but Baen releasing her other books too?! Very cool, even though I will soon be reunited with my hard copies soon :)

Yes, to be honest I only really skim read it and am looking forward to reading it super in depth Megan's books style when my copy arrives. It's only because I am away from home the weekend it's going to arrive that I'm so tempted to read it properly now. Aaaargh.

I utterly adore Baen for doing this. it's so easy to search for a quote and not have to type it out now.

yeah your box situation sounds like mine (how have I been here for two months and still am so badly organized), just on the opposite end! I wish you luck!

I won't see the boxes for 2-3 months after we send them so I don't have to worry about the other end for a while :)

...can you at least use them as furniture?

I cannot imagine not having my boxes for months. However, I suppose you have done without some of your things for years now, huh? It sounds like a nice couple of weeks. Nothing more adorable than a gurgling, chattering baby.

Our leaves are just beginning to change. We have a lot of yellow ones, too. Sometimes the green/yellow/brown is just as pretty as the more vibrant ones.

Well we're going to be staying with family for the first couple of months so it will actually be helpful not to have all of our possessions with us! Although I've just realised that if I want to do any shopping in Kuala Lumpur (I am picturing Asian shops as being a paradise filled with clothes and shoes for short people) then I can't actually take all my shoes home with me in my bag. But how do I know which ones I'll need?! And same with party dresses - though I guess I can get by with one :)

If you don't have all the necessary shoes--well, the solution is easy. Buy more! Hope all your shoe dreams come true in Kuala Lumpur.
