i will never, ever move again - not ever
two house moves within one year (just)
never, ever moving house again ...... well apart from Betsy in to the house
but that is it!
we worked until almost Midnight yesterday - the stone cottage is almost empty, just a mattress, sofa and boxes of stock.
running a small business whilst moving is not great - i have put a stop to any hand made items until the studio is up and running - i just cannot see me sewing in Betsy.
the upside of this is that i will turn again to knitting and crochet - lovely :)
the animals all know that something is up - there restlessness has got me thinking about the last move.......
and we all know how the cats reacted to that - mmmmmmm
i have decided to drug bella, archie and twigs on animal moving day - naturally of course.
Organic Valerian drops from here
it is great to help calm all animals, but cats especially find the smell appealing - drops will be placed on bedding over the next few days and then directly in to their mouths just before popping them in the car.
it is only eight miles down the road so i am hoping that all bodily "movements" will be minimal :)
poor talulla and bean are walking around hanging their heads - they fear that we will be travelling the 750 miles that we did before
binks the rabbit does not seem to be affected - he is just racing around the empty house having a great time!
of course through all this we had a puppers birthday to enjoy - gifts and cake for my sweet talulla x
the weather was beautiful and we all enjoyed an early morning forest walk -
(note to self - never send a man out to buy a birthday cake for a dog - this one feeds 16!!!)
it is now Saturday evening and the garage is all but empty - we have lost a few pieces due to a leaky roof which we thought we had fixed but now see we hadn't :(
the plan for tomorrow is to finish cleaning and go over and finish Betsy's floor - we can then move a few pieces of furniture in so that it looks like home.
the house build is moving on at a great pace and we now have a complete floor - the crew say that this time next week we will have a house without its roof - i will post new pictures over at the Sea House blog tomorrow.
and finally it seems that Dillon and Woody will arrive on Wednesday .........
we all hope so
