One New Somertonian

Well, Mum's move went according to plan yesterday. Perfect sunny weather both ends of course, and absolutely no problems. The removal men emptied her house on Wednesday and then did the journey yesterday. Completion of her sale was done by 10.30 am and of her purchase by 11.15 am. The van arrived about 12.00, Mum arrived at 2.15 and the van left at 4.30-ish. We shifted a few things from A to B, came back here for a meal and then went back to play house for another couple of hours, finally calling it a day about 10.30.

Today has been a different kettle of fish. Hannah came to help (complete with streaming cold), we played the tape recording I mentioned a week or so ago of her singing nursery rhymes, and were all in stitches, while we unpacked the boxes piled up in the kitchen. We finished early, about 4.00 and are now off to bed at 8.30 pm. It's been a long and exhausting day today, unpacking about 20 boxes and rearranging furniture.

Tomorrow will be a surprise. We'll see what we feel like doing. But suffice to say Mum's very happy with the move, the house and Somerton. Me? I just want to sleep!!!!

I'll catch up with you all as soon as I can!

Hi Sue, glad to hear everything went well - housemoving can be soooo traumatic! I always thing that the mving is the exciting bit - but that you wish the nouse you're moving into would just be how you want it without all the weeks and months of decorating, re-fitting and getting stuff just how you want it...looking forward to meeting your mum - as long as she's not as mad as you! :)
love Mike (and Clare)

Thanks so much for your expert advice.

We've been trying to play tapes to our daughter recently of her at about 2 singing nursery rhymes. She wont listen! They turn my heart over though.

Really glad to hear the move went well and that your Mum is happy and settled. I hope you all had a restful weekend after all that activity.

Thank you for your comments about our ghosts at the church. It's nice to hear that someone lived peacefully with their ghost. We will go with your advice, "as long as they're friendly, enjoy them" and that we will !!!
