I’ve been meaning to tell you all about my new house, the one I’m moving into this coming weekend. Now’s the perfect chance, as things are pretty quiet here at work this morning. It’s a cute little downstairs bedsit in a white house with white trim that sits up on a hill, surrounded by trees. All around are little (everything is cute and little) paths and other weird Aro Valley houses. There’s a guy who lives in the upstairs flat with a hammock strung across the balcony.
I don’t have a balcony, but I do have a little patch of grass outside my front door, and a good spot to do some gardening. Last weekend I went out to the California Garden Centre (that place is amazing!) with Daph and Graeme, and bought a few punnets of veggies and things: rocket, bok choi, tomatoes and geraniums. The room is small, but not too small. The bathroom has a bath! The kitchen is tiny, and has been painted yellow. The shelves need repainting – I’m going to paint them red.
All in all, it has a good feeling. I haven’t moved in yet, so this is all just speculation really. But I think I am going to be happy there.
What else? I bought a laptop! A Toshiba M30. I’m really damn happy about it. It’s got a cd burner and plays DVDs. Bloody excellent!
And…as you can see, I’ve changed the design of this page again. Plus I went through and re-wrote the HTML for the whole page. I’d used Front Page just to tweak and doctor things before, and what with all the weird little inserts you get, and formatting tags everywhere, it was really looking like a mess in there! This one feels nice and clean. I really do like it.
Anyway, it’s just a little update, but I guess that seems to be the theme of things these days…
