Stuff

43 boxes of stuff. 5.8 cubic metres of stuff. Lots and lots of our glorious stuff arrived from Japan to our new home today.

It's like Christmas. DH and my faces are beaming, grinning from ear to ear as we excitedly open random boxes and rediscover our stuff. Our beautiful Japanese ceramic plates, wedding presents from dear friends, were the first to come out. We're really over eating off picnic plates like we have been for the last two months.

Out of those 43 boxes of stuff, 23 were destined for my workroom. 23 boxes filled with fabrics, papers, craft books, inspiring artwork, a desk and a sewing machine (not the one in the picture - that's the loaner from my mum I've been using while waiting for mine to arrive).


23 boxes to help keep the homesickness for Japan at bay for a while. 23 boxes filled with things to help bring bits of Japan to life in Australia.

I've promised my doctor, my husband and friends that I will take it easy unpacking the boxes, a great excuse to slowly, lovingly revisit my stuff.
PS. Notice a very preggie belly sticking out in the corner there!

Wow - that's pretty exciting! It looks like you have a lot more space in your new place. Enjoy the unpacking! I will be leaving Japan in the near future to go back to Melbourne. Would you be able to let me know the name of the shipping company you used. Tanyakeiji@hotmail.com
Thanks!

Wow ... 43 boxes!! I just asked Mr HB how many boxes we had when we shifted from Canada. He reckons 10. Truth be told, I think it was about 23. You've got a lot of treasures there - how exciting! Take it easy unpacking.

Your reaction to 40+ boxes is the complete opposite of what mine was when we moved. (But then, we didn't move to a completely different country) I mostly looked at the boxes and thought...Blech! Happy unpacking!

You look adorable with that belly sticking out of your t-shirt!
