Wednesday - A List

Thank you for all the interesting comments about so called artisan foods. I'm going to be searching the shelves for them from now on.......not to buy them.......but just to see what silly prices are charged!

We've been to hospital again this morning for what will be regular twice weekly blood tests for Col. Each test involves waiting for results and then any other treatment needed. We hope if he feels OK he will go on his own as I need to crack on with packing. We are still waiting for confirmation that solicitors will be able to manage a 9th March completion.
As well as packing there are all the other things to do
  • Taking some unwanted furniture to the auction market
  • Try and organise a carpet for the bungalow between exchange and completion
  • Taking the car in to get the Cam belt done (they are being so kind and loaning us a car for free while they do it, in case they can't get it done in one day)
  • Getting our youngest to sort out the stuff we have of theirs still in the shed after 10 months!
  • Finish loading the flat trailer with the garden and workshops things we will need
  • Finish loading the horsebox trailer with the garden and workshop things that we don't need
  • Baking
  • Breadmaking
  • Working out how to get a settee to our sons house
  • Notifying seemingly 1001 places of the new address
  • Organising final meter readings
  • Arranging redirection of post at the Post Office
  • Getting some photos done for new driving licenses
Oh heck, now I've written this down it looks even worse than I thought. It's 23 years since we moved and I'm sure it's got more complicated.

If I don't post everyday you will know why!

Back when I can
Sue

  1. It is a daunting list when you look at it all together but one step at a time! We aren't moving for 18 months and I have already started a list as things pop into my head. Writing it down always makes me worry less.

  2. you will get there. and if you forget to tell anyone, as long as you have a mail redirect for 6 months, as those letters come in you can have a letter already done and then print it off and send it at your leisure. No problems.

    Will the owners of the bungalow allow you to leave some things in the garden before completion. We have always been able to do this and if needs be leave the 2nd car on the road there. So if you cant find anywhere to park for the removals van you already have a space for a small van? just a thought.

    one thing to lose just for a litle bit would be the baking if you can stand it. I like making bread but if it was that or packing I would pack.

    Beaming you lots of good luck vibes.

  4. After 12 moves in 18 years, I don't envy you. That is some list you have over and above what I regularly coped with. The longest I was in any one house was four years, so sometimes we had very short stays.
    Good luck, you need it!

  7. I just want to throw about 90% of what's in my flat away, I'm such a hoarder though.

  8. Good luck, just take one thing at a time. It will all be OK.

  9. Yes moving is a nightmare, we will do it once more and hopefully that will be it.

  10. We found it bad enough after 15 years, take small steps to getting it all done.

  16. Brilliant news about the move!
    Yes, there's so much to do! Especially when you're "downsizing" - as you ARE and I DID! I can remember fearing that I would NEVER get it all done, but, somehow, everything fell in to place. And I'm sure it will be the same for you. One step at a time, lots of cups of tea in between to lubricate things!
    Thinking of you both X

  17. You are filling me with terror!! I do so hope it all goes well for you and Col - such a lot to contend with for you both :)

  18. I've only moved once, from my childhood home, to where I am now. And the next place I move to will be the local churchyard!
    You make sure you look after yourself in all the stressy times X

  19. I vote for splashing out and buying cake and bread until you move, it isn't long and you have too much else to do! I know that you will do it though! xx

  20. Good luck with the move! I've only lived in three houses and hoepfully won't have to move for a long time!

  21. Goodness Sue im tired just reading your list. Just pace yourself and you can do it. Just take of care of yourselves while your doing it all. dee x

  22. Goodness that's a long list! Try not to overdo it though, we don't want you getting ill on top of everything else. I hope it all goes smoothly.

  23. A list is always daunted but once it's listed you can work through it and start ticking off, now that's satisfying.

    It's amazing how many places you have to inform of a new address isn't it, we've moved so many times in the twelve years we've been together (six times) I should be good at it, but it's always a horrible slog.

  24. Oh my - you'll be meeting yourself coming back soon !

    I have a house move coming up later this year - not looking forward to all the work involved.
    Good luck

  25. Good luck with it all m'dear. Hope your hubby doesn't over do it, I'm sure you're keeping a watchful eye. Look after yourself too. We are just about to exchange, today or tomorrow hopefully, so I really can sympathise. We're moving from the south coast to Derbyshire. I'm just trying to do things in bite size chunks and i keep telling myself not to stress, it will all get down :)
