And this was before we'd even exchanged contracts........
You were stressed , the poor aul cat must have been in tatters after that motorway trip for Christ sake ... .

Im sorry for laughing katie..but your move sounds like ours hahahhaha....all our moves.....i learned..ya cant plan nutting but it goes belly up..

the last move in dec was probably our worst...we put the house on the market...and it was sold within 3 days....we didnt expect it to go so fast..so we hadnt even looked at another place we were thinking condo..anyways willie got sick..i had a lupus flare up and we even forgot the house was sold....then at about 5 weeks to leave we woke up and went on a mad dash.....finally got a bigger bloody house in a smaller city 45 mins up a snowed out highway....and if i told you how the actual move itself went youd lock me up..


hate having to keep everything ship shape and perfect for viewings ..my heart goes out to you...my family are untidy shytes.

true.....the house has never been so tidy! The worst thing for me though will be having to take the dog out every time, as he's a bit mental..........
