Beth has been up since about 6am, thanks to feline ministrations. I woke around 6:30am to what sounded like someone erecting scaffolding, but we never figured out what the noise was. Since then we've showered, breakfasted and filled our cars with the first load of random gubbins, and nabbed the two parking spots nearest the apartment for convenience. We won't be driving over to the new house until noon, but we've freed up a bit of breathing space here.
It's a treat to be able to pack knowing that nobody's going to weigh, customs check, fumigate, repack or otherwise mess with our stuff before we unpack again. Actually packing is really an exaggeration, it's more stuffing things into convenient carrying vessels and putting them into the cars - or just hoicking things straight into the cars.
About 90% of the boxes and bags in the apartment haven't been unpacked since London, so that makes the task a lot easier. We do have two curious cats inspecting our handiwork, and they clearly know something is up because they've both awake.
In a short while we'll pop along to the clubhouse to use their printer, and then go for a stroll for some fresh air. It's dry and sunny now after overnight rain, but with unpromising grey skies.
