La la la, I'm not listening

So, we finally got a moving date. 24th March. That’s next Friday.


Not that I’m panicking or anything. I don’t even know what I’m panicking about, I just am. Despite the fact that I’ve known since November that I would be moving, I’ve hardly done anything in terms of actually getting ready to do just that. And now it’s next week. I know that once I get started I’ll be fine, but I am the world’s greatest procrastinator and, as such, am completely failing to get my arse in gear. It’s simple really. All I have to do is change my address with the ninety million people that need to know. Then it’s just packing eighteen month’s worth of single-mother living into various bags, boxes and random receptacles, accepting that I will just have to give all my furniture and white goods to the local re-housing charity because nobody wants to buy them but hey, it’s only money, right?, and reassuring a stressed out almost-six year old that it’s all going to be fine, while not having a nervous breakdown myself.

I don’t know what I’m worrying for.

La la la.....

It'll be fine...a few weeks chaos for a lifetime's happiness. That's a good deal in my book.

I can't wait.

Don't worry about telling people you've moved, click on this link and they'll do it for you! Easy peasy.

Oh, and pay the Royal Mail 13 quid and they'll forward the stuff from people you forget - ask at a main post office for a redirection form.

Boxes, now that's a different matter.
Good luck.

We can help too. How about we don't expect a post on one day. Would that be helpful?

Good luck with the move (mine coming up in a couple of months I hope)

Why don't you just start a fire? Then claim on the insurance and buy everything new?

Moving can be stressul, but the good news is that it will be over before you know it.

It will be interesting to read the sequence in which you PACK the dishes ;-)

What about a tax deduction on all the stuff you donate? The charity can evaluate everything and give you a receipt. Or can you not do that in England? I can't remember anymore. Oh God, I'm becoming American.

I think it's time SP started carrying her own weight. I say she gets the assignment of packing everything, leaving you to take care of the change of address notifications.

We are trying to sell our house and I'm not looking forward to all the packing. Good luck with it all though.

Good luck with your move Surly. Small Surlyess will be fine, fret not.

I would come and help but it's my birthday the day before and I might drop a sofa on your foot. Also it seems a long way to go for a mate.

Andy and I have several plastic crates with lids you can borrow if you like. We bought them for our move.

Hurrah Surly Sis! You are on your way at last! To help get through the packing just keep thinking of that moment when you will shut that new front door behind you and sigh with relief and bliss - it is almost upon you!

OH - you are an absolute gem!

Just try and imagine yourself already living there, approximately 2 weeks down the line. Time will fly. And when you reach that date, you won't know what you were panicking for.

Either that or everything will go wrong and yo...

Oops. Stop now, IDV!
