It's all here!

Our container was delivered on Saturday morning!
We have spent the last three days moving and unpacking boxes.
Most important room first.
Somewhere amid this lot are 4 sewing machines!
Shame my big table is missing though.
The box was opened for inspection by MAF!
The boys on the van said they will look into it this week. Maybe it will be found, maybe not.
 Two more very important machines.
The washing machine has worked very hard over the last two days.
It was lovely of Tonys brother and family to share their machine with us, but it is lovely to be able to just get stuck in whenever I want.
The tumbler has only had a test run. The weather is beautiful so everything went onto the line to dry. 
 My kitchen is with me again.
 There were boxes every where.
 One very important item didn't fit into the box with the TV. 
The bracket which fastens the TV to it's stand was put in a safe place, in a bits of this and that box!!
I could see his growing desperation as he opened box after box searching for it.
There were only two sealed boxes remaining by the time he found it. 
 The rest of our clothing has arrived, it's good to see and wear something different!
Also amid the bedroom stuff was all of our blankets hand made and other wise and of course my lovely hand made quilts.
 Joe was a happy boy when he found his flag. He dashed straight out to the front of the house to tie it up somewhere.
There is still a little work to do, but we are over the worst of it and I can putter on my own to get it finished.
You know how it is, some things go around in circles several times before they find their home.
Time to put my feet up and chill with a glass of wine.
I deserve it.

Happy dance! Happy dance! It must be so very good getting "your" stuff again. Let's hope your table turns up soon. I can just imagine Tony's frustration at not being able to set up his nice big TV. Thank goodness all is sorted. It's good to see that Joe is a proud Manxman.

When I saw that first picture I got a big grin on my face. What fun to "find" your things again. And, if all you lost was a table you are really lucky. Have your checked out your Christmas things yet?

That must have been such an exciting weekend for you. I hope they find your table soon and that you find new places to put everything so you can start to feel you really live there, and you're not just camping.
