6 days before our new tenant moves in

imageThis is my view from my chair as I have my first cuppa of the day. Our current front room furniture is a 2 garden chairs and an upturned box. We have a futon mattress on the floor in the bedroom and our final personal possessions scattered around the place waiting to go into boxes to one of three storage places.

We moved ‘the office’ to South Wales on Thursday and Friday. Our tenant moves in this coming Saturday so we will be boat based from Friday night. This weeks ‘to do list’ includes finally clearing the house, doing odd bits of painting and remedial work so it is ready for Saturday, seeing  friends in Cromford, a couple of trips over to the boat in Hull to get stuff stowed, a bit of actual business work and sell the car, once we no longer need it.

Thing is, in a couple of weeks time, this practical stuff will all be ancient history and we’ll have time to get our heads around boat life and travelling. Which is what it’s all about.

We don’t have a definite date when we plan to depart Hull; the weather and how tired we are will influence that. But as Dave says…. “We’ll go when we’re almost ready”.
