…And Fruit Flies Like Bananas.

our very first sofaI think only Ruach would appreciate the title of this post.

Been getting lots done. Managed to find a sofa within a day, and took delivery of it within a week:

The living room looks *much* more homely now that we have something to jump into after a long day out.

We’ve also done up our first Christmas tree together, last week:

christmas treeWe spent the whole of Saturday roaming the aisles of Ikea, once again picking out more furniture we need. Came home with 2 bookcases and some shelving for the dining area. Decided to hold off on the cot and baby changing table and bedroom sofa for the next round of big purchases. Thank God for their 0% interest 24 month installment payment plan!

Bought Christmas gifts for Han’s family, have yet to find nice things for mine. Novelty of hunting down good presents hasn’t worn off yet.

On another note, yesterday morning I woke up at 4:30am for no apparent reason and decided to get some work done. About half an hour later I thought I actually felt the floor shaking. The water in my glass was rippling, and not far away a couple of car alarms went off. It was an interesting sensation, being swayed in a slightly erratic manner—I wasn’t scared, but it did get me thinking of earthquakes and tsunamis. Didn’t hear any news about an earthquake till this morning, when Han’s mom SMSed me about the [Sumatran earthquake](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6189165.stm) which caused the tremors.

And now I must sleep. Tired. Brandon’s fidgety.
