Question What Have I Forgotten???



HELP!!!

We have the packers starting on Monday and I'm on here on Saturday night? I'm sure I should be very busy running around "doing things" but I seem to have reached a plateau?

I'm reluctant to pack anymore stuff as the cases are packed so anything I know we'll need in the next 3 months is in them.

I've sorted the kitchen drawers and such like.

I've cleaned the car to go to auction on Tuesday.

I've IRONED (yes that was me shouting to get your attention as it's a novelty for me) the clean linen and packed it. What do I do with the linen on the beds now? Hmmmmm?

What am I missing here? What still needs to be done? Anyone else's stuff look this unorganised?

HELP!!!!!!

Caroline, just make sure your personal stuff that you don't want to be shipped is out of the house. They'll wrap and pack everything in sight.
Good Luck.

Don't let them pack the Bolly - you will want that soon!
It's the next step - deeeeeep breath - and move on.
Good to hear things are moving for you if you will pardon the pun

Our packers whizzed through the house like a whirlwind packing and wrapping everything!! I swear if I'd sat still long enough they'd have packed me as well!

Same for us, they wrapped everything that didn't move including stuff we didn't want to take with us but it ended up here all the same

I remember saying "oh dont pack the such and such...." too late..... they'd always just packed it... and they certainly packed very well!! They were a lovely bunch and we kept them going with bottles of cola and lemonade and food from the local chippy!

We had an old set of pans, on the side to chuck out cos we'd bought new. We thought they had been binned, until we unpacked - we've got 2 sets of pans now in nZ.
