We now know how much stuff we can take with us. 2.1 cu m, or 75 cu feet.
When we worked out how much that is, the best way to describe it is imagine a large refrigerator. yep. That is how much can come with us apart from whatever we have in our luggage on the plane.
Crappity crap crap crap! I am going to have to put a lot more stuff in storage than I imagined. Hopefully Nathan's parents can take stuff like our bed - we can't take that!
I have to contact various peoples about yarn - I am terribly behind at present but at least I know how much I can take (and have a good idea of what I can't take with me too!).
Then we have the expensive part at the other end - finding a place to live with no references, setting up home again - we'll have to buy all our electrical appliances, a bed, furniture (though I am thinking renting furniture might be a good idea), more bedding/linen. I'll take our crockery/cutlery with us I think to save a little money and hassle. At least we won't need summer clothing!
Need I say that every moment of every day is filled with dread? So much to do, so little time to get it all done in. So much stuff to get rid of. Panic is not the word for it.
OK, peoples are due around for a working bee, mostly outside but they will take stuff to the op shop, to the tip, do inside stuff (like paint our bookshelves in progress - hooray!) - gosh do we have a bit to get done too! I can't believe how much crud we've developed in the last 18 months here (or more like it crud we have not gotten rid of since our last move).
Hopefully after today I won't have to worry about outside the house, only inside, like what to do with the vast amounts of yarn and fleece I have. Some will just have to go into storage - I don't want to fill up our entire volume of cargo with fleece and yarn (even after putting it in vacuum bags! Then there is the stuff that is not even on my shop site yet - I have some fab stuff but have not had time to get it online (and we still have to download pics on the laptop, which only Nathan can do since I don't' have an account on it).
