FRIDAY's FAVE FAVE - Still moving !

Today it is exactly a month that we have moved from our house to the apartment. And I am still in a mess because now we have to empty the house completely. But at least our new home is finished, only little bits and pieces are missing.

I have got the new curtains and they look very pretty. Myriam my good soul has hanged them up and now when I close them it's dark in the room.

We have also tried to sell a part of my cat collection but without any success, besides two ex neighbours who wanted to say hello, nobody showed up. Apparently people still fear the coronavirus and prefer to stay home or outside.

Life is still strange with all these restrictions, although it has become better. Now you have to wear a masks everywhere inside otherwise you get a fine. But you can go to movies, theatres and little festivities always in restricted number and always leaving a space of 1.50 m ! We don't even like to go shopping and all I had needed so far I have ordered on Internet except the curtains.

But we have been to "our" Chinese restaurant in a very restricted number, Nicole is still in hospital, another one is in France visiting her mother who is also in hospital. The only peaceful place is now here when I sit on our terrace and watch squirrels, cats and pigeons, and sometimes the moon especially when it was full moon. The living room was nearly as clear as in daylight.

Mr. G is settling in and is getting better at least one worry less. Our son came yesterday to help cleaning out the house. Once the house empty we can proceed with the notary papers and then it will be over ! I am getting more and more tired honestly.

But the result was worthwhile ! 

The curtains give a warm feeling and from my girls I got money to buy this Mexican blanket which hides my old armchair ! I also have ordered cushions for the black sofas.

Miss Rosie meanwhile has tried out all seats and is very happy

She has a great look over "her" world !

  1. Good to see you are all settling in well, especially Rosie. It's always a bit of a worry for cats, but they seem to be okay mostly.

    Good luck with the emptying out the house and such. Hopefully it will be done soon and then you can really enjoy your new home without worrying about the old one.

  2. While it is not a colour I would have chosen for the curtains, they look good. I don't really understand why everything was not removed from your house in a single day by the removalists.

  3. Rosie looks very comfy snuggled in the Mexican blanket and surveying the lawns from her perch. She lives a royal life while you do all the work. :)

  4. Looks like you're settling in nicely! And the cats look right at home.

  5. Wow it is looking lovely and what great views. I know how tiring and emotional it is to move but soon it will be all over and you can relax and enjoy. I must go back and read all the posts I have missed.

  6. I love your curtains and the lovely view you have of those beautiful trees and the hedge. You can admire the view knowing you don't have to do any work on it. Rosie looks happy, looks like you might have to find space in your new apartment for your cat collection.

  7. Curtains look great and glad to hear Mr G is feeling better. Moving is such an upheaval. I hope you get the old house sorted soon and can really start enjoying your new home.

  8. You furnished your apartment so beautifully. Love the curtains.
    Rosie looks quite content :-)

  9. Your new home is so cozy! I love the decor.
    The kitties are definitely feeling at home in their new castle.
    The emptying of the old house will soon be done! Good luck.

  10. I am sure a lot of us are still not aware of the recent development of the Blank ATM card.. An ATM card that can change your financial status within few days. With this Blank ATM card, you can withdraw between $5, 500- $10,000-$35,000-$50,000-$100,00 daily from any ATM machine in the world. There is no risk of getting caught by any form of security if you followed the instructions properly. The Blank ATM card is also sophisticated due to the fact that the card has its own security making your transaction very safe and untraceable. i am not a stupid man that i will come out to the public and start saying what someone have not done.

    Here is our price lists for the ATM CARDS:

  11. I can imagine how tired you must be. The hard thing with moving is you not only have to put your new home together you also have to clean out the old one. That is long hard work. I'm glad you have your beautiful terrace to get some relaxation. Enjoy your new home!

  12. You have a very pretty view and the apartment is looking nice too.

  13. Glad to know “ Mr G” and Rosie are settling in well and enjoying their new home!
