All Packed Up…

So, this is it. My last blog post from this house.

Tomorrow morning the burly removal men will arrive and whisk us and all our stuff off to rainy Gloucestershire. At least, I hope they’ll be ‘burly’ – these boxes are heavy! And, ahem, there’s going to be an issue with my sofa, which won’t fit through the front door but we’ll cross that bridge tomorrow….!

Incase you are worried, don’t be. We are ‘equipped’ for the Cotswolds:

I have got these:

And ‘him indoors’ has got one of these:

We’ve had a ‘last supper’ of fish and chips, eaten off the paper and with our fingers (all cutlery and plates packed) and now my man has gone to a Jethro Tull concert in Birmingham – as you do, the night before you move house.

On a different (and writing-related!) note, I’m sorry to say that Warwickshire’s Big Spring Read, about which I was sooo excited, has been cancelled, as, to date, only 22 people had signed up. But I hadn’t bought my tickets yet! And I bet lots of other people were the same – intending to go but yet to buy their ticket. It’s a shame.

Don’t forget, midnight tonight is the deadline if you want to send a story off to the Telegraph Short Story Club monthly competition. It’s free – so what have you got to lose? Details

    Fingers crossed it all goes well – it’s an upheaval but hopefully with lots of happiness ahead. So, you had your fish and chips, I slurped my beer and found this writing festival you may be interested in.
    It’s the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. Hm, i first thought it would be something you could contribute to, but it may still be interesting.
    Happy Moving & best of luck

    • thanks Michaela, Prue, Susan and Julia for your kind comments. It’s going to be a bit hectic for the next few days (especially as I’ve got to go to Liverpool for the day on Thursday, with work! eek) but after that it should be great…!


  5. Good luck with the move, hope it all goes well for you 🙂
