There’s far too much to do.
This Friday, the 3rd of August, (that’s the day after tomorrow folks!), we should settle on the house, and possibly even get the keys. I’m thinking a bottle of sparkling apple juice, a few of Granville’s best felafel rolls, a few candles, and my sweetie – the perfect picnic for our first hours in our new home.
On Saturday, my wonderful sister in law Sarah is coming over to help pack. My brother, our friend Richard, and Mark are going to the new house to build bedroom furniture, install computers, stereo and TV, and build a house of the chickens in the backyard. Hopefully, we can also move the bunnies and the crazy bird so that they can avoid the stress of being here while we’re packing up. Now with added Andrew!
Sunday, more of the same. With added Mandy!
Monday, the professional packer comes in to finish what hasn’t been already done.
Tuesday, the movers come.
Wednesday, Optus connects the phone and internet at Abbott St, and the cleaners come in to do the final clean up in Denistone.
Friday at 10am, we have to hand in the keys for the old house.
Between now and then, I also need to find a garden person to do a huge blitz on the yard, and find carpet cleaners.
I also need to decide which plants are coming with us from Denistone to Merrylands, put them in post if they are in the ground.
There are probably a number of other things I have forgotten about, but that is enough of a list for me to be a wee bit freaked out.
If you’ve previously offered to help out – and I haven’t been in touch, let me know now 🙂 Once all the packing is done, there will be unpacking and furniture building to do (and decorating the nursery – no-one wants to miss out on that!), then organising the housewarming 🙂
