After we've completed a house, it's amazing how many people say "Isn't it great how it all came together!"... as if by accident. This is a very small look into how it all "comes together".

Hi everyone,
We are moving into the house today and tomorrow.
It is looking really great and I am really looking forward to moving there.

I didn't realise I had so much stuff!!
I think I'll be throwing half of it out as I unpack.

I'll have some pics for you very, very soon.
Hope you're all well.


  1. Oh wow, that is so very exciting exciting, although an absolutely horrible process at the same time!

    Can't wait to see more pictures when you have unpacked a few boxes - till then, happy unpacking!

  2. Now the fun begins! Enjoy! ;-)

  3. Enjoy!!!

    We're moving to the 'rent house' tomorrow and Saturday, so that our new build can get going. So, I feel your pain, but also your excitement.


  4. The house looks amazing Jodie, good luck with the move!

  5. Congrats!

    We were appalled at the amount of stuff we had when we moved into our place a month ago - after having it in storage for almost a year :)

    The garage is still overrun with it all..

    Good Luck - cant wait to see pics.

  6. WOW! How very exciting! All the long months leading to this will soon be a forgotten memory!!!??? I hope your move and settling in proves to be plain sailing!

  7. Maybe your stuff breeds like ours does. I'm always throwing out/donating so much! Can't wait to see the new house finished. It'll look so good.

  8. Thank you all lovely girls! Just enjoyed a bottle of Bollinger with A. After 4 straight days of packing/unpacking. I'm the sort of person who can't stand unfinished work, I can't relax until the majority of the boxes are unpacked!
    I will plug in the computer tomorrow and try and get some pics up for you. I will also keep the blog going with new projects, decorating (now the fun begins!!).
    Thanks so much for your support.... It means a lot! Xx
    Ps. I love the House!!!!

  9. Hi there Jodie! Thank you for your comment on my rant about 'the block'. I'm so glad someone else felt it was an unfair situation. How's your house moving / unpacking coming along? Hopefully the children have settled well, they were on school holidays weren't they? Will look forward to seeing your further posts about new projects and decoration of 'the HOME' !!! LOL! x KL

  10. Thanks KL,
    I really agree with all that you said about the block. Luckily last night's episode was a bit better.
    I've almost finished unpacking and it feels good to be here. There's still tradies coming and going and a few things that still need to be done, but we're getting there! I am going to take some pictures over the weekend. I need some decorating feedback!!
    The kids are so happy to be here. They have a lot of friends in the street and they are all so excited! It's great to see.
    Ps. You are so right... it almost feels wrong calling it 'the house' now. I think we've already made our mark! :)

  11. Jodiiiiiieeeee :)

    Have you forgotten about us? :p


  12. Definitely not my lovely blog friends. I'm so sorry I'm neglecting you. Everytime I get the house looking ok, a tradie comes along and makes a mess! However, since I did promise to show it warts and all I shall take some pics tomorrow.
    We have a 'house hat', will post pix of that too. Please forgive me.... This moving business is way too time consuming!!
