Been slowly working on getting the new place unpacked. Tv/entertainment system was first priority and except for an issue with my indoor antenna and reception, that all went well. Unpacked all my dvd's and sorted them into their shelving units and the house started feeling and looking like my home. Kitchen has been sorted, plenty of cupboard and bench space.
Next up is the two bedrooms, one mine -- so all my clothes are still in boxes and suitcases. The other one has my bookcases and desktop computer which is set up. Still waiting for internet to get connected. Hopefully next Monday at the latest. Am missing Games of Thrones and Outlander and of course reading my LJ f*list and what's happening with y'all. And I can't wait to sink my teeth into the awesome spn_j2_bigbang that are being posted.
Have my phone to check Facebook, Twitter and email but not a huge data allowance so can't spend too much time online.
Took Sam for our first walk around the neighbourhood this morning and found a massive dog exercise area about 15 mins walk away. It's right next to some bushland which was lovely to stroll through. There are big steep hills on the way home which are going to be great cardio workouts for us. Was breathless after getting home, but am sure the daily walks will improve both mine and Sam's fitness. And the view from the top over the city with the Darling Ranges in the background was breathtaking.
Saw some really beautiful homes, so many wonderful and varied designs and styles, each house totally different to the ones next door. There's quite a few than I want to photograph on future walks as they'll be great inspiration for fics. A couple next to a small park at the end of my street are so gorgeous I want to write fics just so I can include them.
