When we moved down from London, we paid extra for the full packing service, and it was fantastic! We hardly did anything.. we’d already had a bit of a clear out, so we sat back whilst they came in, packed us up, then moved us.
This time, we’ve gone for the same service, but it hasn’t bee so easy this time. For one thing, we only had one 2 year old in our last house.. this time that little one is 8, and we have an extra 3 year old! LOL So, LOTS more stuff!
In addition, because our new house has lots of fitted wardrobes/cupboards, we’ve had to get rid some of our bedroom furniture, and rearrange what’s left. There are clothes on the floor, units will be swapping contents, etc.. I’m having to make sure it’s as organised as poss, so our removers know where to put everything.
We’ve also managed to accumulate alot of junk over the six years.. every time I’ve cleared out a cupboard, I’ve found more stuff to get rid of. What with the furniture too, I think I have about half a house now!
Ooh..this time next week, we’ll probably be waiting for that phone call, to say we can pick up the keys!! 😀
