After being on the move for a month, we are finally going to start settling down. James negotiated his contract for this position to include a furnished 3 bedroom place. Knowing that our family would be growing and that we were going to have lots of visitors, we really wanted the 3rd bedroom. However, 3 bedrooms are very hard to come by here especially near James’ work which is in the city. James’ company ended up not being able to find one place with 3 bedrooms so we ended up with two apartments right next to each other – one is a 2 bedroom and one is a 1 bedroom which is really sweet! It will make things much more comfortable for our guests and us.
We just “moved in” yesterday. Everything is still in suitcases and boxes and we expect the arrival of all the boxes we shipped at any time. I’m really antsy to get settled. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’m due to give birth in 5 weeks!
Here are some pics of the 2 bedroom unit. It’s so nice!
Here’s the 1 bedroom unit which is right next door on the same floor. Come visit us! You can stay here for just a small fee of babysitting our adorable toddler 🙂
James also got his car on Monday. It’s a Ford CMax. I think he might have been slightly disappointed that it wasn’t something more European that he couldn’t get in the US. However, I think it will work really well since it’s on the “bigger” side (at least compared to how small cars are here) and will fit our family pretty well.
