Today the blokes arrived to pack up our house.
Firstly, this is amazing. It would take us months to do what they have done in a day.
Secondly, this is stressful because you have to get the house ready in a very short amount of time. I was up at 430 this morning washing dishes and throwing away non essentials.
Thirdly, its a bit sad. Its your house they are packing. Your underpants. I spent an hour this afternoon sat in a wicker chair on the street in front if the house drinking coffee with a much loved neighbour. It makes you wonder: will my new neighbours be half as good as my current neighbours?
But, worst and most wonderful of all, it makes the entire move very, unavoidably real. There is no backing out now! We will be moving. Imminently.
