Moving times

We had our first movers in to quote yesterday. I took him through the house and when we got to the garage he kind of stood there quietly for a bit and then: “So you guys moved here from a bigger place temporarily to fill the time before moving abroad?”
A noncommital “Uh” was the best I could manage.

We’ve been in this house nearly four years. Perhaps the accumulation of stuff is why we’ve not stayed in a house this long ever before. Perhaps because we’ve not stayed in a house this long before we’ve not accumulated stuff. 900 cubic feet we’re at (for just the essentials, mind). We’re going to look at garden play equipment to fill out the last 100 cubic feet of a container-load. Woohoo!

    Did he think you had a lot of stuff in a little house? Are you bringing the ikea cupboards or do they go with the house? I can’t believe its only a month to go. I’m crossing the days off the calender!

    Nope, none of the cupboards. You can’t pack anything into them, so they’re very expensive to move. It is very soon – we’re looking forward to the move.
