|I have started the sorting out - honestly...|
Last time the down-sizing was such a nightmare; this time we only need to be a little more sensible in what we take and what we throw away (or give away). Of course there are the usual frustrations: a lack of internet connection (Sky, true to form, are making us wait for a month - a month!), worries about the removal men actually turning up on the day, and concerns whether our furniture will get through the doors and hallways (last time we took a bit o the wall off with one of the sofas). But all of this is pretty run-of-the-mill stuff to us now.
Only one thing makes my head spin - we have to get rid of most of our books. I am not giving up my hardbacks and will sleep on top of them if need be, but the paperbacks will have to go. I have yet to make the trip to the local charity shop (why do you think I'm writing this blog post - blogging is always a good distraction), but later today I do have to sort out the books that I have to say goodbye to. It's like killing your babies....
PS. There may be a little break in blogging - all depending on the good people at Sky, of course.
