And We're Off
The house was packed into a 40ft sea container yesterday and we slept on blow up beds last night, back is a little stiff today but unsure if it was from lifting boxes! Today is strange the house is echoey and big oh so big with no furniture in it, I wonder if I put everything back in it would I have more room now????? We have spent the last fortnight sorting and condensing so much went to the charity shops and out for recycling, I am sure I would have a whole empty room's worth gone. I highly recommend a good clear out ... say every 5 years, just pretend your moving and tidy up!
Now to fill all the picture holes on the walls and do some touch up paint and of course a good scrub all over, no one can say I don't leave a house spotless. The teapot, cups and a vintage glass cake stand are still in the cupboards as these will be the last things to wrap and pop in a box to go into storage. Tea and cake at my house today for all so do pop by and say hello before we get on a plane tonight and head for Australia.
Lots of tears, heart ache and apprehension whizzing around my little 'brainical'... must put the laptop down and get up out of this blowup bed and face my day.
Bye England for now and thank you house for being a wonderful home and all the memories you have given me.
A very very teary Karen xxxxx
