And so, we moved. We’d plotted, planned, paid, gnashed teeth, wrung hands and jumped with joy for months leading up to this point, and finally last weekend – well, Monday to be exact – was the day of the move. Saturday and Sunday were a frenzy of packing, Monday was a flurry of actually moving – all just us doing the lifting, loading and unpacking. We made eight trips with the bakkie we hired for the day, thank you very much. Then Tuesday was all about unpacking, and the rest of week saw us both back at work full-day but still taking delivery of things, having our Telkom line moved, having folk over to take wall measurements, sorting all sorts of insurance, trying out new bus routes, having blood tests and medical check-ups done for life insurance and finally, me nursing my aching (pre-arthritic) fingers and waiting for them to recover enough to post this update. So, here it is, for your viewing pleasure…
Friday, 28 November: Friday pie day and final beach visit from old side of town
Saturday, 29 November 2014: Doggies concerned at all the packing; burgers and shakes at Royale Eatery
Thursday, 4 December 2014: Team lunch with lovely colleagues
There you have it! The doggies are more settled each day and we’re slowly but surely getting rid of the pile of boxes to unpack. It helps that mother-in-law is visiting from tomorrow so we’ve been spurred into action – expect some pics of the new housie in my next update. Over and out!
