The Big Move

Four weeks after moving we finally have internet and phone connected. Apparently that is the standard time it takes Telstra to connect a new service. It's lucky the electricity suppliers aren't as slow.
Enough of the whinging -- The move went smoothly enough and most of the boxes have been unpacked now, although we still can't get our cars in the garage.

I don't think I'll ever get sick of the view. 

We brought quite a few plants with us for the new garden. Two trailer loads and some in the back of the car. There were so many I would love to have brought but I had to prioritise the space available.

I don't feel too bad about leaving them though. The people who bought the house love plants and gardening so I know that Missy's Garden is in good hands.

Currently everything is tucked along the side fence where they can get watered but be out of the sun and wind. I'm just hoping I can keep them alive until we can plant them out.

We have basically decided on a plan for the layout of the garden but haven't got very far yet. There's been quite a deal of rain which would be great for the garden (if we had one) but not particularly good for moving dirt around to create a garden.

In our neighbourhood, all of the houses are newly built so everyone is at various stages of building, moving in or creating their garden.  We compare notes on where to buy dirt, who to get to build fences, etc.

Oh, and most importantly..... Missy is quite comfortable with the move. She has a much smaller kingdom to reign over and guard, but it seems to suit her - being a very small dog and not as energetic as she once was. She can survey her yard and watch out for potential villains from the patio where her food bowls and day bed is kept. .
