Stew has taken the next two days off work, so he can get his car serviced before he has to start commuting to Hamilton.
Also, to do a few things around here.
First up... we are taking a load to Hamilton today, to put into storage. We plan on going down as often as possible with all the stuff I want out of the house before we list it for sale.
So, that's quite a bit of 'stuff'!
Today I think we are taking all the sewing room shelving units, my computer desk, and various other smaller things... and a few boxes. So far I've got about 17 boxes packed.
Bex will be home today, so she will be home for when Brylee and Griffin get home from school, if we are not back by then.
It's getting a bit exciting, like things are happening!
We are going back to Hamilton on Saturday too, I've got 6 houses lined up to view.
It should be a lovely day today, just Stew and I. I'm looking forward to us having lunch somewhere nice in Hamilton and relaxing for a little while, before coming back here to the mad house.
Steve and Bex are mega busy packing and getting ready to move too... so it really is all go here.
Time to go. Got a trailer to load!
Well... Stew and I got the trailer loaded up and left by about 10.30 this morning. We had a smooth trip down to Hamilton, and then dropped all our stuff off at the storage place.
After unloading, we went for a late lunch at The Base then came home.
On the way home I decided to take my HUGE, HUGE sewing desk to the Hospice Shop. I shall use my smaller desk from now on.
So, we got home and loaded that into the trailer. It took Stew, Griffin, Bex AND Me all our strength to get it out of the garage and onto the trailer, it is that heavy!
Down to the Hospice shop and just as we were about to attempt getting it off the trailer, I spied a lovely strong young bloke standing outside the car part shop next door.
So I yell out "Hey Dude, how strong are you feeling today?"
He came over immediately ... and him and Stew managed to lift it into the shop in 5 seconds flat! Awesome. I shook his hand, told him he was just gorgeous and off he went, on his merry way. *smiles*
My motto is if ya don't ask, ya don't get. Simple.
ABOVE: now the garage is a shambles, and I have no desk to work on until I nick the one out of Griffin's room. That will be over the weekend sometime.
Thank goodness it's takeaway night tonight. No cooking. I'm knackered and feel like shit. The cough hasn't been TOO bad today, though we did have to buy some Gees Linctus in Hamilton cos I didn't think to take any with me.
I'm just tired and my head still constantly aches.
End of Day: got a lot done today...quite happy about that of course. Tomorrow is another busy day no doubt, off to bed.
