This morning the moving company guys arrive to start sorting out the house, packing what we haven't done and generally getting everything ready to load onto the trucks tomorrow.

I have to go down to the kid's college and formally withdraw them from that school, and get their records forwarded to their new school.

I'm also going to donate to the school their uniforms, to be given to any kid/s who need them.

Then I will be taking what's left of our frozen food over to Bex and Steve's.

On my way home after that, I will be stopping in at the motel to pick up the keys, so we can get in later tonight.

Tick tock, tick tock!

ICE!  I must get some to use in the chilly bins (Eskys) to keep all our fridge food from spoiling.  

Ummm.... I think that's all for now!



It had to happen.
I've done my back in.  Lower back, both sides.  Can't bend or twist... even walking is painful.
I've taken some heavy duty pain killers.  Hope it helps.

The packers are here.... packing... lol!
We've done all we have to do, so I can sit and relax for a little while.


ABOVE:  there's two guys packing and wrapping, and WOW,  they are really getting through it FAST!

ABOVE:  All the stuff we are taking in the car, plus all the cleaning stuff to clean the house tomorrow night.

Asked the kids to take the dogs for a walk.  They didn't get too far before Coco decided she didn't want to walk!  So Griffin brought her home.  Sadly, that means in her 'bedroom'.  Can't have the dogs underfoot while all this is going on.

3.23 pm:  And the packers have gone, coming back bright and early tomorrow to finish off the packing, then load the trucks.
Feeling so CALM right now!  Usually I would be a screaming bitch by now, stressing out over EVERY TINY THING!

But I'm not *shaking me head*.  Maybe that's because I really have organised the shit out of this move?  Everything really IS going like clockwork!  I'm thrilled.

Pain relief for my back is WONDERFUL.  I could hardly move after I stuffed it.  I love Tramadol.  *smiles*

Dinner tonight will be some sort of takeaway, then we will stay here until after we have watched the final of 'Happy Valley'.
Then it will simply be a matter of feeding the dogs, putting them to bed in their crates, then taking off to the motel.

So... I'll sign off now and catch ya tomorrow.
