There was no unpacking or tidying up today because it’s Mum’s birthday! We started the day off with me taking Mum to Kornblatt’s New York Deli to share a big plate of vege hash and poached eggs. Then we walked it off with a big long walk admiring the grand turn of the century homes that stand proud on the hills to the West of our neighbourhood. When we got home there was a big bunch of flowers waiting on the porch from Papi (he’s away for work). I think that made her day. Now we’re wrapping up the day with watermelon gelato at Mio Gelato. I think that’s coming in a close second.

This morning we took a short stroll from our house into the Pearl district and I achieved a new milestone. My first all American peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
Unpacking is fun. I’ve been reunited with some of my favourite things.
Now we just have to get reunited with the internet! We’re in the supermarket cafe today. The connection is slooooooow. Fortunately the bagels, cream cheese and tea are delicious!
We’re not completely unpacked and the house should be declared a disaster area, but we have officially moved into our new home.
We haven’t got ourselves connected yet either so this post is brought to you from a local cafe with free wi-fi. We might be having a lot of coffee out this week!
and for Mum to play with her new camera.
This morning Mum and I cleaned the house, sorted out paperwork and researched parking permits and day care centres near our new house. By lunch time I was ready to get out of the house. So I packed Lucy into my handbag, said goodbye to Mum and marched to the front door. Everything was fine, until I realised that I’m not tall enough to open the front door by myself yet.
