So much is happening!

Mattias got a job! He is starting as Business Partner and Team Leader at IKEA in Cagliari i April. This will help our economy a lot! :-)

We won the "Bando" with the Comune di Mogorella, to operate Casa Sanna, where we will offer accommodation and, as soon as we have staff, also a Pizzeria!

There have been so much going on lately that I have not been able to keep the blog up to date. But I will keep working on it, so that you will be able to follow the Murgia Family journey from the beginning.

Meanwhile, feel free to follow our Facebook Page, for more frequent updates! :-)

Desperately trying not to forget anything...



I finished my job at Svedala kommun. I have at least two more days of work for Murgia Grafica and Genea Murgia, two-three days worth of budget and business plan work for Casa Murgia, Mogorella, and about a week's worth of phone calls, e-mails, and document compiling in preparation for the move. Seven more doctors' appointments (unevenly distributed among the family members), a dog with stress stomach, another garage sale this weekend, getting the car in for service, last minute goodbyes. Oh, and about a gazillion moving boxes to unpack, sort and repack.

A slight panicky feeling is starting to creep up on me. Only five weeks to go. I need coffee and a deep breath of Swedish June flowers...

A piece of paradise

Bring, Save, Sell or throw out???

Bring, Save, Sell or throw out???

Our house in Sweden is finally sold. We will hand over the keys to the new owners on July 7th.

The big move is closing in on us! Our dream is so close! The house is full of boxes being packed and unpacked. When we put the house up for sale a couple of months ago we were in a hurry to get it in exhibition mode and numerous are the boxes marked "Sort later"... Now that the deal is closed we can start packing for real. We have decided that a moving company would be to expensive, and have bought our own moving trailer, so we have to scale down the "Bring" boxes down to a total of 390 kg, that is the maximum weight the trailer is allowed to hold when it is pulled with our car. The "Save" boxes and furniture have to fit on 5m2, so that the storage cost won't ruin us. The "Sell" boxes are unlimited, so we hope to get a really good turn up on our garage sale next weekend!

The animals' rabies vaccination was just changed from tomorrow to Friday, as the vet had too many bookings tomorrow. Both cat and dog are acting like rebellious teenagers right now, since the house is a disorganized mess with all boxes and piles of stuff being sorted...

I have two more weeks of work and the kids four more weeks of school. We are really looking forward to get trough the messy part of the packing, and head out towards our own piece of paradise!
