Heavens to Betsy But Moving is Exhausting!

Heavens to Betsy but moving is exhausting, as if we didn’t all know! It’s going to be at least another week or two before I’m back to normal or as normal as my life ever is. My landline and internet are not going to be up and running until 1st August so I’m still having to pop into the Pilot Boat Inn next door.

There are great advantages to having them as neighbours and I’m thankful that it’s not a rowdy establishment. I stayed there for three days before I could actually move into the cottage and the rooms are excellent. Included in their restaurant menu are mussels accompanied by a cream sauce with white wine and Vermouth, which is to die for. In fact, I’m so besotted I’ve yet to try anything else on the menu.

As for the process of moving, when your mobility and dexterity are limited, it takes a great deal more time and effort to do what you can and organise help for what you can’t.  My niece and sister-in-law are doing as much as they are able but the stumbling block, which will come as no surprise to my friends, are the boxes of books. ‘I’m so sorry,’ I said to the delivery guys. ‘I promise to stop reading!’

The locals are charming and helpful while the supermarket provided me with the biggest laugh:

I look forward to ‘rest bite’ care as and when.

In the meantime…

Take care and keep laughing!

    Awww sweetie, bless ya!!!! It IZ tough!!!! We did it last September … a long process but one well worth the efforts. I love fresh starts!!! I agree with hitandrun above … would love to see this pretty room again when you’ve got all your ‘stuff’ arranged the way you like it. Now. Go sit down. Put your feet up. Take a deeeep breath. Be kind to yourself!!!!! It’ll all still be there waiting for you when you’re ready!!!

    Ooh I went in that out about fifty years ago! I love the IoW and hope you will be very happy in your new home.
    Sounds like that lady runs nursing care for vampires! 😉

  4. I once moved three times within a four year period. That was a nightmare. No wonder I’ve stayed at the current apartment for the last seven years!

    Good luck finishing your move, Sarah.

    Moving is such tough work. We have plans to move in the future – the house is too big for us now that one child is at Uni….Also we have a romantic notion we’d like to live in Scotland or abroad somewhere. Or both! Take care try not to overdo it.
