I am having my (very late) breakfast and am trying to plan my day.  If the sun was shining I would be on the balcony… plans or no plans. Instead I have enough little things to keep me busy. My cats are thrilled I am home so that they can show me all the new spots they have found in the apartment. The chasing game has ended and we are now in pro-longed cat nap time.

I have spent 3 days putting together IKEA furniture with a friend. It has been fun but also frustrating, especially when it didn’t want to work out the way we had planned. Lots of coffee, swearing and insane laughter later… it is done. Even managed to get out-of-town for a few hours. Drove to the Wicklow Mountains with no particular destination in mind… probably explains the VERY bumpy roads we ended up on. It was really nice getting out and a good laugh. Next time though… I will bring proper footwear. I love my sandals but they are not great for longer walks.

Right now though, I will close my eyes and listen to one of my absolute favorite songs by Adele.

      It was 🙂 I cannot take credit for the picture but that is the view around there. Will need to go there for a longer trip and bring the camera one day.

    You put all the shelves the right way around this time then? 😉

  3. Lots of coffee, nice view, and a lovely song, amidst all the furniture assembling. Sounds like you are having a pleasant time post-moving. 🙂

  4. Oh, I LOVE Adele! Awesome song to chill out to….

    I’ve enjoyed reading about your furniture assembling adventures. Whoever has shopped at IKEA can certainly relate! For a very funny read on the IKEA shopping experience, check out this post from food blogger David Lebovitz — it’s hysterical!

    Glad to hear you — and your cats — are getting settled.
