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!
