    Ok guys, so I am moving house tomorrow and I have been non-stop packing, dumping and cleaning for the last 3 days. I've forgotten just what a nightmare it is to move house, and the amount of accumulative junk one picks up over the years. The bin men will not be happy come tuesday morn'!!!!

    My keyword has been 'ruthless' and I have binned or donated to charity shops most of my shit. Nothing like a fresh start eh!

    Anyway, I'm taking a break, I think I must be two thirds of the way......now I will be without abode for 3 weeks, then moving into a country cottage...hooray! Just thought some might like to know......I'm stressed!

    Ed

    Eddy, I'll bet you're less than half way through.
    That's how it works for me, anyway.
    Good luck ... and keep us posted.
    :heart:

    Thanks Flashy mate, truly colossal!!! And freaking dusty! AHAAR-AHAAAR....(excuse me!).


    You know what I mean! It is a TOTAL mind fuck....I realise now that I must be a hoarder....kind of like a squirrel with his nuts....but instead a guy with too many CDs, books, clothes, electrical shit, cables, plates, spice jars, toiletries, cleaning products...fuck man, the list goes on!

    Good luck to you. I think of moving all the time. When going thru things you wonder where you got half the stuff!

    I totally sympathise Eddy. I'm moving apartments at the end of the month and dreading it already. That said I'm only moving about 200 yards.

    Eddy,
    Good luck!
    The last time I moved it was only 8 stories down in the same building and it was a pain. Once done think of how happy you will be!
