My home is disappearing into boxes and a van

The packers arrived on time. The wardrobe delivered to DGD along with a planter for DD2.

Once back the packing started in Ernest, things disappearing into boxes after being wrapped. DD2 arrived with lunch and started on the sewing room. DH was just in time to stop them packing the tea tin. Would not get far without that!!

I began to get a bit wound up, so took painkillers and retired upstairs to bed.

Of course the weather decided not to co operate, it rained, typical.

Most of the house is now at the bungalow, DB and I went over to supervise the furniture going in and all the boxes, just a few more to go, the bed and our bedroom furniture and the remains of the kitchen stuff. Whilst we were out DD2 did more packing and also cleaned the kitchen cupboards etc, she has been an absolute God send since I was taken ill. She has arranged to have tomorrow off as well to be here and then at the bungalow to start unpacking.

I am tired, will be getting into bed shortly, need the rest.

  1. Moving house is so very tiring - thoughts and prayers with you right now. Rest when you can, and accept all help that is offered. And thank the Lord for loving friends and family who will be there for you through this time xx

  2. We get so used to being totally independent and doing all for ourselves that it comes as a surprise when someone else is just as good and maybe better! It sounds that this move is going to go a lot smoother than you thought, thanks to the packers and your wonderful family. I am pleased that you realised that you needed to rest and have some pain relief, it is so hard to admit that we need to calm down. I have always been a busy person but since having a stroke when I was 60 I have had to accept help and learn to say thank you graciously. In a couple of months time all this will have faded into the past and you will be comfortably settled in your new home. Hope everything continues as it is, good luck for tomorrow. Love Andie xxx

  4. Well done on managing all this upheaval so well and getting so much done today! It's good you can relax into bed for the rest you need just now.

    Cheers for DD2 for her good help and for DB for saving the tea tin!

    Wishing you sweet, restful dreams and perhaps a dose of paracetamol?

    I'm with you in spirit!

    Big hugs!

  6. Hope all is well, that you're feeling stronger, and that your new cooker is in place and wired in (or that the person to wire it in will come soon).

    Have you managed to relax yet? Smile as you look about you, even if there are too many boxes still in view. One thing at a time, it will all be tidied soon enough.

    Big hugs!
