MOVING DAY (er ... WEEK ...)

I have been so busy this week helping my mom move - what a nightmare - I have promised her that I will NEVER help her move again - I am sure I have lost at least 3 kgs in 2 days??? (So not on!!! tee hee ...). Luckily (???) she is moving in with me for a short while whilst we complete her cottage outside so I guess I am pretty safe in that I need NEVER help her move again ... tee hee ...

We had drama from the word go ... the whole moving and packing "thing" was seriously disorganised and this made it extremely unpleasant, but we are onto the last day - we have been packing and moving since Tuesday ... grrr ... - and we have survived!

I know one thing I have learnt from this move - keep your stuff to a minimum and clear away the clutter (read junk) before your move - it is insane trying to pack all the junk as well and cart it to the next place for sorting "one day" - not gonna happen!!

Soooo next week will be spent going through my home to clear the clutter .... I HAVE TO DO THIS ...

In between I have Challenges to complete and a Birthday Party to organise for Bryce - does anybody know of a GO-KARTING place in KZN (I was going to say just Durban but I may be wishing against the moon) that we can hire for a day???? Please e-mail me if you do as this would be a stunning way to celebrate the day with his mates ....

We are hoping to be able to find a petrol remote control car for him - he has been on the net (completely supervised, of course) researching these cars - if he spent half as much time researching his school projects, he would get 100% everytime ... tee hee ... shows what a bit of motivation (ie. something he wants desperately enough) can do ...

I need to get ready so that we can finish moving today - am exhausted so may need to sleep for a week (oooh no - have to clear the clutter ... have to clear the clutter ...).

Have a great day!!!

Love,

Must say I don't envy you at all ... had enough of moving for a while now after having my fair share at the end of last year. You can perhaps contact Ellie Griffiths ... I am sure her son has done some rides on go-karts in Durban.

I hate moving too...it is amazing isn't it that it takes a move to jolt us back to the reality how full our garages really are....I have never worked out why ours is so full...you know how it is...with just-in-case stuff that piles up. I don't think we have used anything in there for the 6 years we have been in this house...dumb hey??

Well I hope your Mom settles in with you quickly....my parents stayed with us for 15months before going back to the UK...it was SO great having them with us (baby sitters on tap we called them :o) It was hard to see them go.

It's nearly weekend...then you can get some sleep....she can babysit heehee!
