We are moving!!

A quick post.

Since I came back from my weekend away at Cairns, I have been so caught up with lots of nitty gritty stuff, I have not got time to take pics of the layouts I did at the retreat! I did an album on Saturday, and managed to churn out 8 layouts on Sunday. Very pleased....

So what are the nitty gritty stuff? Selling furniture, eBaying, organising the move, etc etc. Yes, the move. We are finally moving into our house. We sold most of the furniture we wanted to sell at very good prices (better than expected), so we are pretty happy. Boxes are lying around everywhere in the house in every shape and form - flattened, folded, filled, half-filled ...... My head feels like it is overflowing, I can't process a lot these days. To make matters worse, our washing machine broke down. Of all times. This machine is 12 years old. Never once did it give us any problems. Its sudden death is quite untimely to say the least. We are financially tight at the moment with moving and getting things ready for the new house. Needless to say, we have no time to shop around for a new one. And the demise of a washing machine, a modern day necessity, is just ... plain WRONG!!! We thought of getting one on rental for the time being to tie us over. Then a saviour came to our rescue. My FIL - quite the UNusual suspect - told us he has one sitting in his shed. Why would an old man living on his own buy a spare washing machine, I have no idea, but hey, it worked out for us. So Peter went to his house to pick it up and now we have a borrowed, albeit crappy, but working washing machine. I can't complain.

Anyways.... packing is full steam ahead from now on. So pardon me if I don't blog .... (what's changed?? LOL) but I'll be back online as soon as I can.

Good luck with my move!

Good luck with your move!!! I'm at the very start of the whole process... still writing and listing and ebaying, not yet into the hardcore packing yet. But yes, it gives me a headache everytime i think about the packing!! haha... how is it that the "house" seems to know that we're moving and everything starts to break down! We had a mini fire cos the lights went kaput!! :P
