Halfway there!

Well, on Monday, I finally reached the stage of moving out of my house.

That's it. Most of my possessions in the van. Waiting for (in this picture) my bed, wardrobe and washing machine I think!

Due to GG's amazing packing skills (seriously, she's wonderful) I hardly had to pack anything! My jobs were things like cleaning the bathroom and the oven. Oh, and putting all the plants in the back of my car.

See, the thing is, we haven't got the other house yet. So most of my belongings are now in storage, somewhere in Ely. Obviously, my plants wouldn't have survived that. So they have come with me. I'm living in my parents' house right now. Fortunately (for them and me) they are away, so it works out pretty well. They get a house-sitter, and I get a roof over my head!

We have, today, finally heard that all is ok, and both us and the people we're buying off want to complete as soon as possible. I've just transferred the deposit to the solicitors, so hopefully we will exchange contracts tomorrow, and complete a week later! My last day on the job is next Friday, and we'll leave my furniture in storage for another couple of weeks to let us do a little painting. I love it when a plan comes together!

Oh, and I had a haircut. I couldn't cope with having hair and packing, and I'd got fed up with it anyway. So it's all gone again. Hooray!

GG asked me to send a photo, and this is the bad, sweaty, just-finished-riding photo she got. Apparently I look like an angry hamster. Her words!!
