So, it works this way here in Québec.
You finish secondary school and then you go to CEGEP (collège d'enseignement général et professional)
and then you go to university ( or not )...
This year some universities are not starting
until the beginning of October
in Québec you rent from July 1 to June 30th....
so the rent schedule starts NOW....
which means renting a truck,
moving the pieces of furniture that our future student had pieced together
and getting it all transfered to Montréal
to her first apartment where she plans to study hard
in her tiny but well-appointed bedroom....
|The kijiji chair which was worked on in another post has finally come to rest here....|
|Gorgeous wood floors which have been well maintained - bonus!!|
let's set the scene...
add in extremely high temperatures
lots of traffic
and 3 flights of narrow stairs
(no elevators in these old Montréal buildings and possibly no building codes at the time of construction for the width of corridors??)
but hang on....
I cannot forget to mention the word IKEA.
Perhaps I need not say anything more??
|And of course anywhere that you can add a few hooks you do....|
Lots of editing to be done, pictures to be hung, flower pots to be filled....
with a trip to Ikea to get the bed.... put it together...
hang curtain rods and curtains,
clean windows.... you get it, right?
albeit not always easy for the maman!!
I am so glad that she is smilin'
in her first apartment.
Interesting and fun times ahead!!
