Moving on

It all happens tomorrow.
It’s difficult to understand how we managed to accumulate so much STUFF.
Still, it was an opportunity to have a good clear out and get rid of a lot of things we never used, had worn out, or forgot we had. If we hadn’t used it in seven years, we obviously didn’t need it.
Most of our boxes are full of books, DVDs, CDs and one of videos.

boxesThere are 2 large plastic containers with bedding and linens, another holds our crockery. Wooden boxes hold the electricals and Hubby’s tools.

Gone are the TV (tube on the plink, ie pink screen) , washing machine (stinks, needed a new inner seal, and it was making some very interesting and new noises on the last couple of wash cycles yesterday) , plastic linen basket which I dropped a couple of years ago and the top shattered so I smoothed over the rough edges with masking tape, toaster (pot luck whether you got soggy bread or burnt place mats) , hoover (the brushes finally gave up and there was a horrible clunking noise every time I switched on) , kettle (has more fur on it than the dog) and a whole array of rusted baking trays and chipped ceramic serving dishes. The lawn mower died a little while ago but may well be resurrected by now.

cleaningToday has been spent moving everything into one room, cleaning the others and locking the doors whilst Hubby gave the car a good check over.

After loading up tomorrow, we shall deposit our final storage bits at the lock up then have a bacon sarnie before going out to the river for our final walk there.

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.

    Do you have a new place to live?

    • Not yet. Sadly our offer was refused on a property we were interested in, but we intend to stay with a friend for a few days, then we’re going to have a holiday. You never know, we may find something that takes our fancy and we can put in an acceptable offer there and then!
