On moving

I hate moving, well I hate that the current move has up to this point all been done on foot.

Now just stop and think about that, all my possessions so far have been walked the mile and a half from my current flat, to Temporary Storage Area A that included a bookshelf, and some very hefty holdalls as well as numerous boxes and bags.

So tomorrow the final pile of stuff will be riding in a taxi, because S and I really can’t be bothered carrying stuff any longer.

In preparation for the final pile of stuff moving, and the handing in of the keys, I spent much of yesterday cleaning, and defrosting the freezer. I now hold a deep dislike for freezers as it took around 4 hours to successfully remove all the ice into a large plastic bucket. Four hours of attacking said ice with a plastic picnic spoon, not daring to use anything sharper of hardier in case I somehow broke the freezer. My favourite moment being when the inch and a half thickness of ice that had been the top of the freezer finally fell in one piece removing what remained of the ice sheets on the walls with it. I had to break that one to get it in the bucket!

I also had to move and hoover under all of my bedroom furniture, Now as my bedroom isn’t big enough to swing a cat in, this required me to move ALL of my furniture out of my room (no seriously) So after spending around 30 minutes moving the offending furniture out (apart from half the bed) I had to hoover, not just the floor, but the skirting boards, then I spent another 30 minutes moving all the furniture back in. I am glad to say that as far as I am concerned, my room is now done, and I should have no need to go back in there!

I do however still have to move a very large, heavy box full of papery things, my duvet and pillows, a plastic box of odds and ends, a few bags of assorted stuff, oh and the rest of the bookshelf.

And it all needs moved tomorrow, as the keys get handed back on Tuesday morning.

Wish me luck!
