First night in London

Technically, we were not in the new house in London, as our furniture arrives on Monday. Apart from the suitcases we brought, the cat beds, PCs, and of course, the cats, the house is empty. And STILL under renovation from the move out of the previous tenant, I dissappointingly must update. So, we will be moving into a house that still needs to be repainted AFTER our funiture is moved in. If it sounds daunting to you, please tell me...because we are feeling overwhelmed a bit at the moment.

As for all things related to the house, our goods arrive on Monday. The million dollar question: is all our stuff going to fit? It is going to be tight on many fronts. The most challenging issue at this time remains "how in the blue blazes" we are going to get the furniture up the stairs. The stairs are super narrow and incredibly winding. May have to remove the heard that right, remove the banister.

Back to the topic of the post, we arrived in London about 10 pm last evening, and after a couple of trips to/from Heathrow Airport, we picked up the cats without incident. They have been cleared for UK entry. Ginger and Gracie were the only ones who slept at the new house last night, since we slept at a hotel (thankfully - no air mattress for the Budman and Hachie Gal this time around - once was definitely enough).

After getting to bed at about 2 am, we are now headed back to the house today to prep for the movers who depart Germany tonight and arrive in London at 8 am tomorrow morning.

So, we will now be entering the black hole for a few days as the house does not yet have connectivity. See you on the flip side.

Congrats on the arrival! So excited for you guys. Painting after the furniture arrives sounds awful, you have my sympathies.

Can't wait to see pics :)

Am so tired of moving....think this will be the last one before the FINAL one back to the big W.
