I managed to drill my first hole into our stone wall today. Our previous house had drywall everywhere, which was a nightmare. I had so many different types of screws and wall fixings for drywall and none of them could hold a decent amount of weight. Today I just drilled a hole, put in a wall plug and attached the wardrobe to the wall with a safety strap. Yesterday I mentioned that you have to pay to get rid of plasterboard here, so not having to deal with it at the new house is great.

There is still a lot of unpacking left to do, but I feel like we are making some headway, and at least I have a home office to work from again. Oh, I'm also happy to report that it's a lot easier to put IKEA furniture together than what it is to take it apart.
