Just a short note to let those readers who have emailed to ask how our house moving has gone that we’re in our new home successfully.

Yesterday (the day we had to be out of our old place and in our new one) was a long day (I started carrying boxes at 7am and stopped carrying them at 9pm) and I’m tired, bruised (you should see the purple bruise on my arm which I dropped a couch on) and battered – but we finally made it (despite some lawyers delaying settlement on our new place for 4 hours and costing us a small fortune in ‘waiting fees’ from our removalist (I’ve never seen anyone earn so much money for sitting in a truck smoking).

The only other hiccup – I won’t have broadband in our place for the next 10-14 days – ouch! What’s a ProBlogger to do!?

Luckily I have a mobile broadband account – slower and less bandwidth but enough to get me through a couple of weeks. I’ll be posting as normal (hopefully) – but email replies could be a little more sketchy than normal for the next week or two.

Anyway – I don’t usually blog about personal things – but seeing as so many of you asked after last week’s video post I thought I’d give an update.

Now – back to some blogging.

  • Congratulations on the move! pity about the slow broadband though, but I guess it will be worth it.

  • Always a pain in the backside, i will never do it again myself, always pony up the cash. What’s the new Suburb you”re dwelling in Darren?

  • Neil – we’re out East (previously in the North).

  • Congratulations on getting the move done, Darren. Now all you’ve got to do is get settled in – furniture arranged and possessions out of the boxes to wherever they’re supposed to be.

    It’s been 26 years since the last time we moved.

  • Darren – Congratulations on the move! Did you have an architect design the ultimate blogger-friendly home?

  • Ahoy Darren,

    Congratulations on moving to your brand new place. Hope to see some good overall.

    New place, new idea , new enthusiasm…. best of luck


  • Congratulations Darren! Nothing more stressful than moving.

  • Couches go on the floor, not your arm… m’kay?

  • I feel your pain. Moving is the biggest pain in the butt. My Sister used to move so much that instead of helping her I started paying movers to help her instead.

    Time to rest and relax. Leave the unpacking for another day. Enjoy your new place.

  • You’ll have to post pictures of your new home office Darren!

  • Good to hear the move went smoothly. Having gone through the pain of it myself a couple of years ago (and my son being 2 at the time) I understand the stresses and strains, especially having to hang around for money to transfer (ouch on the ‘waiting fees’ – annoying when its something you’ve no control over).

    Look forward to seeing photos of your new office setup one you’ve settled in.

  • MG

    Congrats! Post some pictures of the house :) Hope you’ll have some great time there.

  • Nice one, Darren! Hope the bruise eases away quick enough and the broadband beasties don’t give you too much trouble!

  • Congrats on the move! Looking forward to some pictures once you get unpacked. If you’re anything like me, it’ll take some time to empty that last box .
