moving

This was meant to be a messy tuesdays post. But of course, I'm behind, and its now wednesday. I've decided that is appropriate.

We moved house over a week ago now, but we're not entirely unpacked yet and the mess is starting to upset me. Every time I walk across a room, I trip over something that hasn't got a home yet. So, to save my sanity, this photo utilises the macro setting to blur it all out behind a kitchen utensil*. I have too much work to do this week** to worry about the rest of the unpacking.

It will get sorted in evenings and at the weekend(s). Eventually. And then the house will be lovely. We've bought a great bed, which actually has bookshelves built inside the base (its called a 'library bed'). That's got to help the unpacking.

There has been some knitting amongst all of this. Its a cotton tee with a heart texture pattern. Not very much, as the moving, cleaning, phoning up utilities companies (don't get me started on BT...) and general screaming into the abyss of boxes hasn't really left much time for yarn. Plus, as predicted, the bicycle has been a serious competitor to knitting. I hope it'll be done in a couple of weeks though, then I'll write up the pattern.

* I'm not entirely sure what this utensil is. We use it for fishing pasta out of water. Sort of like a slotted spoon, but wire based - more slots than spoon.

** I start my new job today. This afternoon, I'm moving offices.

My boyfriend's parents have a untensil like that; we spent ages trying to work out what it was for until we realised that it has a model hen on the end of the handle and is probably for scooping eggs out of boiling water.

Good luck with the job!

Oh I feel your pain with BT- they completely messed up my move. Don't think they like updating their records. I t seems to confuse them.

Good luck with the new job!

Congratulations again on the job! and the utensil: it's used to fish fried stuff out of wok's. But it's quite versatile...

Oh goodness, I absolutely despise moving, my thoughts are with you. I have seen those utensils before, not sure what they are for, I always thought they were for fishing thing out of a fryer..hmmm

i think that the wire thingy is for eggs, not sure how big it is but can you hang it up the other way round and store eggs in it?
The library bed sounds like a fab idea where did you find it? hope its comfy too!

Hehe... the wire thing is for (Chinese) hot pot :)
