When you decide to move it is always an opportunity for clearing the house of things that you no longer need. But moving abroad makes this more of a necessity as either you must store things or pay to have them transported across Europe.
It is already the end of October and…..
I have got to get on with clearing the house
There is still so much to do and looking around the house in Cornwall all I see is this…
Confusion is always better when Bonnie is sleeping in it!
I have a deadline and most of this stuff must go. It feels chaotic as I move things from one place to the next, trying to sort out what to take and what to leave. There is nowhere to put anything!
I have lost all sense of time – can I do what I need to do in only one month?
Would it take 6 months?
Why have we spent almost all our time here renovating the stable when we should be packing and decorating?
And yet I know that I need somewhere to put all the things that must stay in Cornwall. It’s just that I never imagined this would all take so long and be so exhausting both physically and emotionally.
It doesn’t help that my asthma has returned with a vengeance. I am allergic to Cornish mists and pollens and dust from concrete and plaster is making me worse.
Help arrives from a friend in Canada
What a bright moment it was in my day yesterday when I found an envelope in the post box addressed to the Compassionate and Gorgeous Kate Wilson. It was full of beautiful cards made by my blog friend Bodhi Chicklet and was a giveaway from her wonderful and funny blog.
Thank you so much Bodhi – you brought magic into my day.
It is so nice to get proper post – something that hardly ever happens these days and this was a reminder to me to send more personal cards to friends and family.
And to write nice things and to draw on envelopes.
