Green to go!



We've had the green light! So we pick up the keys to the new house on Saturday. That gives me tomorrow, as l'm working Wednesday through Friday to get organised. Which list to write first! I shan't sleep tonight, so l may make some headway over night.

So what to do first? Buy some beds,  a washing machine and some chairs, tables and a sofa from a clearance place or two!

Then we have four days over the weekend to get the most of our things over to our new abode a mile away. Larry and I will have a van for Monday and move the larger pieces. We won't have beds until Wednesday at the earliest, so we may sleep on the floor at the new place or in beds at the current place, which we will have for another month yet. But once the bulk of our own belongings are moved, l'll be loathe to leave the house unattended.

My stomach has been crunching all week and we only viewed this house exactly two weeks ago, I can't imagine how l would be if we had to wait the usual 3-4 months! We are lucky we are in a position to keep two properties overlapping for  a time, condusive to an ease of transit.

So I may be unavoidably be distracted from blogging for a while over the next week or so. Although I shall be lurking some, because this saddo has a broadband dongle and l can access internet and you all 'anywhere, anytime',  who aid that?  Batman ? or was it superman? Perhaps  Thunderbirds are more appropriate.

FFF and family are GO!

  20. One big suggestion I would add is that of "expect" it to take a loooonng time to get moved in. You will more than likely live out of boxes for a few months depending upon how much time you have and, mostly, how organzied you are. Most of us get overwhelmed with the process. Take time to have a good hot meal, even if it is fast food, take a hot bath/shower and get plenty of rest, even if you are laying there watching the blue tube, at least your body will be "resting".

    Make it fun!
