We have a water pump for the well so we have running water, also hot water, electricity, gas hob, underfloor heating, flushing toilets, shower, mostly decorated, so despite still lots to do it's totally livable. I promise I'll post pics after we're settled in.
We're supposed to be out this Saturday, and over the last few weeks we have been moving boxes and stuff up to the house. So on the last couple of days it means we'll just have furniture mostly.

The satellite guys found that we couldn't get a signal from the main signal-giving-thingy, and the 2nd possibility is erm.. turned off.... sooooo I might get proper internet access in the nearish future because we've heard they'll be turning on that 2nd one soon.
Or, I'll be sticking with an internet dongle connection.
Yes, yes, I have hyperventilated. It means a slooooow connection, minimal bandwidth.... no video uploads or downloads, reduced surfing... argh. But, the good news is that because of technology, I will remain connected with friends - still blogging and (selective) bloghopping, and emailing. And fingers crossed the main connection is turned on, and we convince the satellite guys to return to us (moaning gits).
and some linky love...
