The unpack

by Kate on October 10, 2011

I always seem to forget what a chore unpacking is, especially when we are squeezing back into our old (and smaller) home but I’m very pleased to report that the job is done.

Surprisingly, the blue glass arrived safe and sound.

I scored some great pieces on my final trip to Tyabb and was also gifted some crackers from Kirst and Tam, still a way to go though.

It’s good to be back but to be honest, it feels like we never left. Which is a bit sad.

The blue looks lovely … I think that’s what “home” does to you. It’s part of what makes it where you belong I think … sob. x

The unpack is SUCH a chore. You seem to be doing very well. I adore your blue glass. x

Great pieces! I have a deep and abiding affection for opaque and lighter blue glass…

As for being back, in the weeks to come you will discover subtle differences and small changes that occurred while you were away; those will be the things that remind you that you did, in fact, live away. It might not make you less sad but it will evoke the memory. Nostalgia has a warmth to it that I’ve always found comforting even in the longing.

I hope the good bits come to outweigh the missing bits soon :-)
(A coffee and cannoli up the road at Papa’s when you’re settled might help, my shout! Are you an inner westie?)

nice collection. I’m impressed with the speed of your unpacking, we moved in June and technically I suppose we are unpacked, stuff is out of boxes, but not all of it is in a though out spot.

Ahh what a lovely collection. Sadly my first thought was, “Wow I’d love to have a shelf/cupboard etc that wasn’t covered in CRAP where I could actually display nice stuff”!! Welcome back lovely! Hope to see you soon x

Welcome back! :) You might feel a bit like you never left, but you have amazing friends and storehouse of memories that testify to you time away… and possibly the way these encounters may have changed you. Have a day filled with sunshine, both in the air and in your heart.
