The good and the bad

The good news, we are moved into our new flat. The last few weeks have flown by. Yesterday we were running a few errands and the better half said, “It feels like all we’ve done lately is move from one task to the next. I need a break.”

So here’s some more good news, in a few days, we’re leaving for a much needed holiday. We didn’t plan on the moving right before going away for ten days. Luckily the boys have seemed to settle into the new flat.

Currently we don’t have Internet in the new flat. That was one of the tasks that got put on the back burner since we both forgot how much of a rigmarole it is to have an active phone line installed and then to have our service provider to take the time to flip the switch on their end. It can take weeks. But as I said, it won’t matter much since we’ll be gone.

I do miss visiting with all of you. I appreciate all the comments and well wishes about the move. You guys are the best. When we return, hopefully things will be back to normal. Take care everyone and I hope you have a marvelous couple of weeks.

Here are some random photos of Miles, including his train ride to the new place. As it turns out, Miles loves taking the train. Atticus insisted on taking a cab.

    Duuuuuude so glad you’ll be taking a vacation after all that stress. Moving definitely sucks because the boxes seem never ending and then after all that unpacking you have to clean the stuff you unpacked. Sheesh I’m tired for you. Have a great vacation.

  4. Dogs allowed on trains? Not even in a box/crate? That’s good. He’s looking well.
    Glad you moved in OK. And enjoy the hol. Not Brazil for the last matches?!
