The house is ours!

Well, we did it! The house is now ours and ready to move in to. Now we need to pack and engage movers.

Here's a preview of the house. It cuts off at the end. And yes, the doorbell needs repair to it actually rings.

What a wonderful home. I love old houses and the tub and radiators are perfection. Do you like your area of Dorchester? We always miss the city and if our house on Cape doesn't sell we always wish to have the best of both city and country. So, in your opinion do you think the prices (which seem good in Dorchester as I looked on zillow) are good and do you like the neighborhood?
Congratulations again.

The prices in the area are very nice. We did look at one place on a neighbourhood I would not live in, but the area around Ashmont seems quite nice. We have friends there and there is an active community that has block parties, an annual neighbourhood yard sale, and shares information on local services.

The London Trip - LONG POST

The Doc and I had the following email exchange yesterday:The Doc: I just noticed, I can't find your England Report on your blog, you say you will tell people what happened but I can't find the actual info

Teru: Hmm, I should put that up, shouldn't I

The Doc: Only if you want to go into details about your booty call ;-)

Teru: Hmmm, I'm still uncertain about how much information I want to share on the web. It might get me more readers though :)

The Doc: Don't mind what you tell people, let them know how badly I was at sex, I don't care... tell them how you got ill and had to be cared for. tell them about the time I ran out of money and had to ask for NTL to put my money back into my account. you have my consent.

Anything you want. But most importantly of all you MUST tell people how much I love you, and how much I smiled and how much we kissed in public.

Oh and don't forget the meet and the reading bit.Since he said I could tell all, so I might as well say r…

Kitchen table

So I made a table.

We really needed a kitchen table, in addition to other things in there that will be coming later, and Spouse and I disagreed on they style. I wanted a formica '50s jobbie like I used to have years ago and he preferred a farmhouse style. The ones I like, however, are rather expensive. So I went with farmhouse and decided to make it myself.

I found the Ana White site, which has TONS of plans of every level. The Narrow Farmhouse Table was the style I was looking for, but not the size. Fortunately the plans are very clear and I was able to alter it to make the table the size I needed.

I decided to go for a cheaper wood for the bottom of the table and paint it. My main concern was just that it be sturdy so I went for poplar. In retrosepct, I think I should have gone for something heavier as the table top is oak which is incredibly heavy. All the planks were purchsed in standard widths and cut to the right length at Home Depot. That saved me a lot of time and probably…

And so it begins again
