The moving process is progressing smoothly! Even if I am still having occasional panic attacks about OH GOD BUT ALL THE STUFF.
We started the cleaning of our old house today. It’s amazing how much easier a place is to clean when it’s empty. We should be done with that by the end of tomorrow and then the carpet cleaning specialist will be arriving on Wednesday to finish off the job.
The original plan was to hire a car to get the rest of our stuff over to the new place, but of course it’s forecast to snow heavily on Tuesday and Wednesday. Of course it is. I’m not super confident about driving at the moment as I’m out of practice, and I really don’t want to drive in the snow, so we’ve decided to hire a man with a van and get it all done in one go Tuesday lunchtime before the snow really hits. After that, it’s just the wi-fi and phone connection stuff to pick up (we can’t get connected at the new place until Friday, so we’re eking out our internet access at the old place for as long as possible).
I’m going to be cooking in the new kitchen for the first time tonight, and then write down my plan for how the storage is all going to work. The amount of work the new place needs is still pretty daunting, but I’m starting to feel a bit more positive about it.
