Moving ….Love it or hate it we all do it at some point , some move more than others some never move at all once they get to a place they decide is for them . This place is somewhere they feel warm and comfortable and relaxed in and it will take a huge incentive to make them go through the agonies of packing and moving . After all it is a huge task , sorting out , packing boxes and cases , playing with bubble wrap , lol, except the sods have now stopped making it so no more poppable bubble wrap , new stuff is not poppable ( spoilsports ) . So a word of warning if you find real bubble wrap then keep it , coz you will not get any more , did I mention they are spoilsports? Getting rid of the poppable stuff so they can just make more money , not fair .
Anyway getting back to this moving lark , it is no fun it is a right pain in the proverbial , you have to go through everything you have , sort it out , see what to keep and what to chuck out. Have you any idea how time consuming and hard this is? Do I keep this or do I not ? Will I use it again or will it just go in another cupboard not to be used just like it wasn’t used before , but you keep it Justin…you know just..in case you might want it again in 6 months time . Funny thing is if you do keep it , you will probably never use it , but the second you get rid of it in approximately 5 mins time you will need it . Didn’t i say a blog or 2 ago about Murphy’s Law ? Well this is what it is based on and remember he was an optimist , and this kind of situation just proves it 100%.
Then of course there is the furniture , yikes! beds , cupboards, wardrobes , dressing tables , tables , lounges, chairs , etc . etc. etc. Then we have the ” white goods ” you know fridge , freezer, washing machine , etc. then of course there is also the crockery , the cutlery, the glassware , all this stuff ad infinitum , always seems to be 1 more thing of each than you thought you had , and you always find things you thought you had lost which add to the number of items you now have to move . Remember Murphy ?? lol yep here he is again messing with all your carefully laid moving plans , good ain’t it ? lol
Clothing now here is the really fun part , it always seems to work out that you have way more than you even thought you had , but you don’t find this out till you start to pack them , lol , well done Murphy once again. , but shhh don’t remind him about shoes which always seem to have bred in the cupboard you had them in while you were not paying attention so again more than you thought you had to pack , grrrr dam you Murphy ..see how he manages to mess with every thing ? Mess with every plan you had and were so sure you had sorted . lol not a hope of it all going exactly to plan with him around . Will someone please get rid of Murphy and his law please ?
Things will not be so bad if you remember him and plan around him , yes it can be done , lol, if you like call it a plan B , always have a plan B , I always have and it has always worked for me ( phew ) lol ….so right now sitting among the cases and boxes and bubble wrap , yes the right kind lol and I’m keeping what we don’t use so I can still have some popping fun later . Waiting on hubby to get last few things done and for the truck to arrive to pick up the stuff , hoping that when it all gets to the other end it will all come off ok and then we can begin the fun of sorting it out …oh joy .. 😦 …lol … got to be done right ? The very best thing about this bit is that once we have gotten it all there we can take our time to sort it out and get rid of what we don’t want .
Then for the next few weeks you sort things out , get the house in order , then go out and about in your new suburb to see what’s what so you know where everything is if you need anything , this can be a nice relaxing time walking around and maybe meeting new people in the shops or whatever and maybe some of the new neighbours . First few weeks are the most intense as you get to know the place and the people and how things work , like busses and trains etc. …..Anyway better get going before hubby and or truck arrives lol will see you all later …. 🙂
Husband”hunny, I want you to whisper dirty things in my ear” . . . Me “kitchen, living room, dining room, bed room, should I keep going?” . . .
