In With The New

Oh my. Another busy day in a series of oh so busy days. I went to exchange moolah for keys this afternoon & tonight my mother in law came to help us move a couple loads of boxes over (to make tomorrow's moving a little less hectic). She also came bearing a Dark Terry's Chocolate Orange which might actually be my most favourite kind of chocolate (ever). I know that the whole orange/choco thing isn't for everyone but it is certainly for me! So, since I know that she reads my blog -- thank you very much for the chocolate & help this evening. I've definitely lucked out with the whole mother in law situation.

I was so excited to visit the new apartment this afternoon & get my key! My friend & neighbour (and her poor broken-in-three-places ankle) came with me to visit my new neighbourhood. We also scoped out the nearest cafe/pub called the Ritz Deli North. It's in the bottom of an older renovated house & is absolutely charming. The atmosphere is fabulous, the waiter was so sweet & the food -- oh my word. We both had reubens with a side soup (ie. big deli sandwich, generous bowl of soup & pickles on the side). The price is even great -- all of that for about $12 total. Excellent. I'm so glad that there is such a nice spot just a block from our new place. We have been very spoiled living directly downtown (and I mean directly) so the fact that our new place is actually 5 blocks from downtown makes it seem like going downtown will be an epic journey. Pathetic, right? The Ritz also has a really decent selection of beer which will come in handy in a few months when I'm able to partake in such events again. The boy will be happy with beer so close by as well.

I suppose that is all for now, ladies & gents. I have diligently packed up all of our food, dishes & cutlery, so it looks like we might have to forage some dinner from a restaurant for our last night downtown. Sigh. I've lived in this same one block radius for the past two years & I'm going to miss having these cafes, restaurants & shops just mere steps away. Both of my jobs are only a block from where I live now (which means I can leave my house almost at the same time as I'm supposed to open the shops). This will no longer be the case since being about 5 or 6 blocks away (and waddling, as I fear my eight months pregnant body may be doing these days) will seriously increase my commute. Ah well! 'Tis a fair trade considering the fact that we are going from a one bedroom to a four bedroom (with only a very meager increase in cost).

Bliss, I say. Bliss indeed.

Have a lovely evening, friends. Time to shower & find some grub. Peace.

ps. It wasn't Thanksgiving for us this week, but happy Thanksgiving to my friends to the south. I hope you all had fabulous meals with friends, family & love.

5 blocks is only a brisk walk, though. Well, brisk when you're not pregnant... Hmmm. It'll be a great way to burn off the pounds post-baby. Right?
Enjoy the new place!

Brisk indeed -- the only trick will be doing groceries haha. I think I'll have to get one of those granny carts ^_^
Definitely a great way to burn the pounds -- walking with the baby in the snuggly back and forth to visit my downtown friends :D
