Day 49: The first van load

Day 49

The carpet cleaner came to the new house this morning and did his job amazingly efficiently. When you watch someone doing something they are proficient at they make it look so easy. You go away thinking “I could have done that” and then when you do try to do it you realise it is not as simple as it seemed.

Once the carpet cleaner had been paid and left the obligatory waiting period began. You must know that feeling – watching something dry and willing it to dry faster, but it doesn’t. If anything the reverse seems to happen and the time seems to pass more slowly. We wanted to start moving our things into our new home but we had to wait.

Fortunately it was a beautiful day and we were able to leave all the doors and windows open which helped a lot.

Later in the day we loaded up the van we had hired with our first load. We had arranged for a moving company to come on Wednesday morning to move the really big items of furniture but we were going to move everything else. As I looked around me it dawned on me that this was going to be a long week. I can’t believe how much stuff we have. Where has it all come from and why do we need it all? Living simply seemed particularly appealing in that moment.

Nothing could curb my excitement though. The moving process has officially begun. We were finally moving into our own home. This has been a long time coming.  Yippee!!!!
