The Home Straight

We’ve just finished the absolutely hardest weekend of this entire adventure, moving all the white-goods and large items that will only fit on a U-Haul utility trailer, into storage.

What we left behind can only be imagined … but, I took some pictures anyway.

The kitchen's a disaster

The bedroom doesn't exist any more

But no matter how much you pack and tidy …

After the party's over there's always one guest that ends up like this. Whoever said that dead gas-lifts for office chairs were easy to remove, LIED!

Just when we thought we were getting some clear spaces, Mrs Widds spotted these two beauties with a sign on them saying ‘Free’ …

A little careworn, and showing their age

They're heavy bastards but look at this beautiful metalwork

So, they’re in the storage unit as well, awaiting their time to be refurbished and have their moment in the sun.

The carpets have been shampooed, all the indoor plants have been sent to their future homes, and our trusty steed (the truck) is up-to-date with her shots. What’s left now it getting all the ‘stuff’, we want to take with us in our travel trailer to actually fit into our travel trailer.

I suspect further culling will be required.

I’ll probably get one more post up here before we leave, and then I will be at the mercies of cell-phone coverage, wi-fi, and other assorted means of getting an interwebz signal, to keep you updated.

We’re both exhausted beyond measure, but, relatively speaking, doing well.
