More packing and starting to buy new furniture for the new place. I also had people from different moving companies come in and look at my apartment to give me estimates. No way in hell was I planning on moving all my books and furniture by myself resp. with friends. I am way past that age ;-) I finally found a company that I liked and had them look at my boyfriends place as well. The most awesome issue about the move was that we didn't have to do any renovating. I moved in my apartment eleven years ago and it was not renovated but in good shape and the contract said I will not have to do anything either when I move out. And since my boyfriends landlord decided to sell the apartment, he didn't have to do anything either. That was the responsibility of the new owner. The new place was already renovated so that was easy and a big help. I will post pictures later on to show you our new place. I now have my very own stitching room with my TV and he has his room. We also have a big living room where the other TV is located, a great fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, a bedroom and a little room that I converted into my shoe closet (he still doubts that Imelda Marcos has more shoes than I do ;-)) We also have a cellar and a "hobby room" downstairs which gives us additional storage space. Since he also used to be a bookseller like me, we both have tons of books.


Oh my!!! Long time no see...

Well, a lot has been going on since I last posted. I will try and give brief summaries of each month. At the end of October my boyfriend and I finally found an apartment we both liked and signed the contract to move in in January. So for me the next three months were spent going through my stitching stuff, my books, my dvds and other stuff. Luckily our landlords were gracious enough to allow us to use the basement so I could move stuff in there as soon as I was done with packing stuff up. My old apartment was so full of stuff because I had no storage place in the basement. So in order to really get packing, I had to move small stuff that I could carry myself in the new place. As you can image, not much stitching did get done during that time.
