making moves......

 If only you could do this, instead of this..... life would be easier....you'd know where everything is, and wouldn't spend the next 2 years looking for things which are of no use anyway!
Yes, the joys of moving house.....we are in the middle of it, and so half of our possessions are in the new place, the other half in the old place.....and that in the month of August and at the start of the 2 week long village fête!
It's hot, it's long, it's difficult....!
Furniture has to be bought and delivered and installed.....one long story of looking, measuring,  then you need a plumber, because the existing water points are no good for fridges that make ice cubes, or machines that wash dishes..... ok - if they only came as quickly as this guy, but it's August - the main holiday month - and he's probably sitting in his car, with his family, wishing he was under OUR sink  or is thinking out NEW transport methods....... in any case, he isn't where he should be!
Electricians are also a little problem......NO HOLES IN THE WALLS, you say, and then he turns up, finally - ......
Logically you get a storm so you can see if there is a hole in the roof or not, then all the new bills start coming in, and you think - Well, it's only once, although why the electric meter has to be changed at great cost, but looks just like the old one I don't know....the removal 'experts' have to be paid and watered.....all good clean fun!
Suddenly 'her indoors' decides new stuff is needed! The study being completely full with empty, half empty and full boxes, it's not usable for much...... ....'her indoors' makes her Calender/plans (something like this) ....
I've given up, and just want to go to bed at a reasonable hour!and - seriously, I'm going to have to give serious consideration to this question..........
When....I ask myself, and you, and 'her indoors' will all this be finished....but then....and I didn't have to do the removals either!
