Our first Sunday in Elizabeth Bay has started with sunshine and cockatoos. I'm reluctant to draw the curtains over the picture window in the bedroom, but it might be necessary if we are ever to sleep past 7. We're sitting in the living room now with a few items of furniture and some boxes acquired yesterday at Bing Lee Discounts - telly, microwave, vacuum cleaner. Today we will buy some wire storage shelves for the closet and then we can really unpack.|
What else? The neighbourhood is gorgeous - a mix of water, marina, park, art deco blocks of flats, some older sandstone buildings, some sixties flats like the one we're in (built for the view), lots of male eye candy, restaurants, corner shops, etc. A short walk across the park to Robert and Gary, about ten minutes walk to the railway station, a bus that stops a few yards away. Sweet.
I'm already somewhat apprehensive of the inevitable clutter that will appear once our stuff arrives. The bookshelves will probably fit, but will make the living room smaller and darker and there isn't much other space. The second bedroom will receive some of them, I suppose. I've asked for "executive unpacking service" from the relocation company, so we'll see what they can do for us.
