Lessons

A lesson to all....

1. Do not lose your boyfriend's house key
2. Do not lose your boyfriend's new house key
3. Do not lose your boyfriend's new house key on the day of the move

We had only just came out of the real estate agent's place an hour ago and already I had lost his keys. The envelope the keys were in was not sealed - so its not entirely my fault.

Luckily, for us, the agent did give us another set of keys.

Yesterday temperatures hit 33oC and on a hot summer day like this one, the last thing you would want to be doing, would to be moving homes. The new place was on the top floor of a 3 level apartment. Pete had failed to mention to the removalists one very important detail - there were no lifts in the apartment.

So to stop them grumbling, I told Pete maybe we should help out with the moving. We actually ended up doing most of the moving from the bottom of the apartment to the unit. Only the beds were left to the removalists.

Three flights of stairs.

I gave up after the first hour and just sat down opening boxes.

It didn't help that the apartment he rented was a split level apartment - another flight of stairs.

Total of four flights of stairs. 33oC heat. No keys.

Needless to say, he wasn't exactly in the happiest of moods.
