This will be short, mostly because it’s written between gulping coffee, and having to get dressed, and prepare for the arrival of the moving company’s packing crew by packing as much as I can before they get here. It is, in fact, less ridiculous than it sounds, as I’ve been doing packing up and hauling of things to the new house for weeks using our own car, and the more I pack myself, the less hours we pay for them working, the cheaper the move will be.
The actual hauling-sofas (thankfully not by us) day is tomorrow, with subsequent cleaning up of this apartment on Saturday, which shouldn’t take long because we are not filthy people – the last couple of moves, our clean-up took between 2 and 3 hours for similarly-sized places. The difference is that, after this one, I can look forward to a soak in a really deep bath tub, and then laying on the sofa in front of the fire in our new fireplace.
Considering what the road to the new place currently looks like,
… I think I deserve it.
A before-and-after renovations post is upcoming, as soon as we have had time to move in, unpack, sleep, and take some nice photos of the new place. I will be using the realtor’s photos for ‘before’, as they had good light, and were rather thorough – and this avoids the ugly taken-in-the-dark-with-a-potato ‘before’ and beautifully staged ‘after’ artificially enhanced contrast.
And with this, I shall gulp my coffee and head to the kitchen- stuff won’t pack itself.
