It happened!

The piano was the last item in the first of four storage containers, everything is now stored away till next week, when we finally get to move in.

For now, we're holidaying in the New Forest and have the worst wifi in the world, but at least it's in the pub!

boxes boxes boxes

We're moving house tomorrow.

Can you tell?

And I haven't even shown you all the boxes in the loft and the shed and all the outdoor plant pots....

But as long as we know where the kettle is, I expect we'll manage!

Look what I just found in the loft - circa 1987 I think. You can enlarge it to readable proportions by clicking on the pic.

My pond, the frog nursery!

This is the scene from my window - the pond looks as if it's boiling as the frogs jostle for the best position! Click on the pic to enlarge it and see how many pairs of froggy eyes you can spot.

The moment I go outside they all vanish - except today one decided to stay and pose for the camera.

And this is why - look mum, look what I've done!

On Tuesday there was just one small blob of frog spawn - today (Thursday) there are SIX!

We'll be moving house next month so won't see them grow up this year, I've got enough packing to do without working out how to transport amphibians! In any case, it's not advisable to move pond life around, it can unwittingly spread invasive non-native plants. I'm sure we can soon attract some frogs to our new home.
