Ok, so it's been a while since the last post. Last weekend was moving weekend. It was a traumatic weekend of down sizing from our three bedroom house to a two bedroom town house. I admit this is temporary move whilst the new mansion is built. However it is amazing how much stuff accumulates. My work shop (though my wife prefers to think of it as her car garage, such narrow thinking) is a case in point. I have only been woodworking for 18months, maybe two years but I think it took me two solid days to pack and deconstruct my gear. The garage looks so sad and empty now.
Since our move was a little complex, stuff going to the new town house, some to storage and some to the in-laws house I decided it was easier to rent a van for a few days rather than hire removelists. I am stupid. Four hard days in the van with several in the car as well got the job done. Now I do have a few friends, not many but a few, but as it was a long weekend most had much better plans than helping me avoid bodily injury or heart failure. However a few hung around and my dad did a great job in lifting heavy stuff. My wife was a packing whizz while mum patiently tended the children, and we got the job done.
Now we are in the new house there is still much to be done. Everything put away, a place to be found for everything that needs to be put away. Most of all I need to set up a new workshop.
This could take some time.
Hopefully the builders will hurry up and build our new dream!
