Farewell-i Hope You Are ReadyMy absence from EP has been for a higher purpose. We are moving house.
For many, a move is the most stressful thing they face in their lives. Some say it can be more stressful than divorce or bereavement. Tosh!
This is my 8th move in 16 years most of which have been international and/or intercontinental. This one is domestic but has its particular challenges. Australia is a big country. This move is through several hours of time-zone, across thousands of miles of desert and from one climate to a vastly different one. But that is not the challenge.
This is one of the few moves and the first for some time without the benefit and assistance of domestic help. The other complication is that we are moving from a smaller abode to a larger house and in doing so are liberating a 40ft container of furniture and personal effects which has lained waiting on another continent for the better part of two years.
Packing up our modest home here;) after 18 months in Melbourne is a significant task. Unpacking these effects together with the others merged after so long, is daunting.
The prepacking is all but complete. This weekend we move into an hotel and next week the professional packers finish off our efforts to date and prepare the shipment westwards ho.
Perth come I. I hope you are ready.
