Well, I ‘kinda’ have a moving date in mind, but I need to see if I can get the time off work first, and organise a truck etc. But what IS official, is that I handed my notice into the real estate agent today and gave my month’s notice. I officially hand back the keys on 4 June … yikes! It’s all really happening now! 😀 And the real estate agent is going to give me a glowing reference, and says she doesn’t blame me for wanting to get out so badly.
Thanks to Tannia and a work colleague, I’ll be picking up some free packing boxes from Kensington (just have to work out where the heck that is yet haha) on Wednesday at 5pm, then it’s all on for young and old. I have so much ‘rubbish’ to sort through before I start packing, though, but at least I can start packing things like my DVD’s and books straightaway. Just spent another 2 hours yapping to Mum on the phone, and I actually feel quite excited in some ways that it’s all happening … then I feel a bit melancholic … then I feel excited again … what a nutter! And Mum is hoping to come over and give me a hand if she can get her passport renewed in time this week – if nothing else it will be really nice to have the company, as well as the spare set of hands for packing. I don’t know what I’d do without my Mum, bless her! 😀
I did say to Mum, though, I just walked across the room into the corner where the worst cracks are, and it feels as though the whole floor is on a slope now … that was a bit freaky! I’ve decided I don’t need to get outside for exercise, I just need to walk up and down my lounge room for a bit 😉
And what do you think is the first thing we discussed about what I’d need to take with me in the car, not in storage? Yep, you guessed it … my stitching. Even though I’m not really motivated to stitch right now, that’s the first thing I’ve started planning for my travelling kit LOL.
Rightio, no more time to chat – time to start doing a bit of work for an hour or so … I’m not doing much lifting etc until my back’s fixed, but that’s only 24 hours away now woohoo, then it’s all systems go! 😀
Thanks once again for all your words of love and support – they all mean a heck of a lot to me. I’m really sorry that I can’t spend much time returning the visits for a short while, but I’m sure you understand why 😀
OK, I’m off to start in the spare bedroom, which is the biggest tip – I think it’ll take me an entire week just sorting that one room out LOL.
