The last Day in My Life for 2008!
I had a bit of a sleep in as I came down with a bit of a flu yesterday - just what you don't need when you have to pack up an entire house ready to move on Monday! Fortunately, my mum came up to help us, and my brother also had to be in Sydney for work reasons so he's helped us this weekend as well. It's been an absolute godsend having them both, I know we wouldn't have finished everything without them.
I had a long-standing appointment with my Chicks with Sticks girls (a few former workmates who gather every month or so to knit and eat, drink and gossip) - one of our number is moving to Melbourne for 6 months and so it was her last CwS, and we'd put it off a few times already, so husby gave me special dispensation from the packing for a couple of hours, which was very good of him.
I did take a load of things in the car to drop off at the new house on the way back - fragile things or awkward things to pack - lamps, drawers, dinner set, food processor, pictures and frames, that sort of thing.
I spent a lovely couple of hours catching up with my friends and knitting, and all too soon had to leave. I dropped off the miscellaneous stuff at our new house (fortunately near where we met for CwS!) and headed home.
Arrived home and packed a few boxes, then it was afternoon tea time.
Donni, your fabulous biscuits came in so handy! It was just what we needed to pick us up and prepare for the final packing onslaught!
Is this not the best (non-knitting related) invention in the world?
Why yes it is!
We had dinner at the local RSL Club (my brother is still a member, and he had some "member dollars" to use up) which made for a quick, cheap and easy meal for a tired bunch.
Then the final push once we got home. The bathroom stuff, and the final bits and pieces in my study and my knitting corner of the loungeroom. Oh, and some laundry stuff. I think that's everything!
And a final cup of tea whilst blogging this. Then off to bed - it's going to be an early start and a big day tomorrow!
