Dear Diary:

Here we go then, with a diary series from now until the day we move as for a while I will be signing off until I can get somewhere with internet access.

internet accessToday will be clothes sorting. Those to take, those to store, those to bin. I get the idea the last pile is going to be pretty big.

Our plan for attire is everyday stuff (tees and joggers and anything that doesn’t require pressing, not that I do any if I can get away with it…… if you fold it right, there’s no need!) , plus a Posh Bag. You never know if you’re going to have to go somewhere and make a good impression. Our last jaunt in the moving game (2007 see Camping Chronicles) taught us that if you want people to take you seriously as cash buyers you need to look ‘smart’. Clean and presentable (though crumpled) doesn’t work, and our budget will not indicate us to be eccentric millionaires!

wardrobeSorting through everything should not take that long, and Hubby is intending to dismantle the wardrobe anyway.

‘Why?’ I hear you ask.

When we moved in, no 2 doors matched, and even the knobs on the same door were not a pair either side. We replaced all of the internal doors with paneled pine, most of which were a standard 30 inch width and therefore easily available.

Our wardrobe is not very big, being just a three door solid pine unit.
Like most ‘off the shelf’ furniture, it came as a flat pack. We assembled it in our bedroom, and it has stayed in the same place ever since, looking very nice as it matches our chests of drawers.
The problem is the doorway. It is only two feet wide, and we had to order a door specially to fit which took 10 weeks!

Our wardrobe is 26 inches deep, thus 26 into 24 won’t go, even taking the door off.

The weather is for rain all day, so working inside is not a bad idea.
Tomorrow the tip is open (Friday to Monday, 9am to 4pm) and we will be doing several tip runs over the weekend as we empty the shed and dispose of our poor lawnmower. Such a shame that it’s finally died and we’ll be unable to cut the grass before we leave.lawn mower


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
