Yesterday was supposed to be moving day...they eventually received the keys to the cottage at 9:35 last night...completion had taken place at 9:30am! Very poorly planned move to have either women or people needing a stent fitted plus an ex husband helping. The place she was going to just the couple were doing it all themselves meaning their small rent a van load number one didn't get unloaded until nearly 4pm. However in the 4 houurs they waited they got nothing ready to move such as all her plants and pots and garden things..Hubby got shouted at by a very viscious daughter at 5pm when he offered to help. Apparently they had until midnight to clear out. So he pointed out that actually that would have been midday and they were technically trespassing. We kept a curtain open in order to watch them struggle. I believe that they only dismantled a large polytunnel last evening in the dark. So nothing ended up moving yesterday from our place apart from their cars which they parked there late last night. They only really wanted to move in things from the horsebox that hubby and son-in -law had fetched from the in-laws the night before and which had to be moved out of a shed as the bull needed bringing into the shed due to beaters being around today!
One thing moved a little too fast yesterday lunchtime though...me down the stairs carrying armfuls of washing...today I will not be lifting much of anything and have a hot water bottle attached to my back.
In hindsight we should have known that moving would be just as traumatic as purchasing really!
