Packing Boxes and Packing Tape.....

Our house here in Brisbane is looking more and more like a warehouse with packing boxes filling every room!
Who would have though that much stuff had accumulated and how many boxes it takes to empty a room!
Still we are getting closer to our settlement date (the 29th Jan) and my flight down to Tassie on the 7th. Hubby will drive down in our car with his father taking up the role of co-pilot.
Have booked our two pussycats into the 'cat hilton' for a few weeks while we move and set up again in our new home. They have never been kennelled before and so have a challenging time ahead.
This is Joseph. He likes sleeping, snoozing, resting his eyes, catching some ZZZZ's, reclining and most of all getting a little shut eye. He is also a master of what we have come to call the 'defrosting chicken' pose. Picture him flat on his back, spreadeagled with four paws in the air - now picture the four paws slowly sinking towards the ground as he falls asleep.
Will have to get a picture and post it.

Our youngest is Spud. A little flighty, a little spacey (he's blond) and a whole lotta 'smooch'!
We got them both from RSPCA and they have been the other half of our family for going on eight years now.
Spoilt? Maybe. Loved? Definitely!
We are looking forward to introducing them to true cold and maybe even snow! They are going to be little puffballs when their coats fill out again!

What sweeties they are Annie! Hope they cope alright with their cat stay while you move!
Enjoy your trip down there.

P.S. Yes! It was good to see the finishing of those cushions and gift bags! Didn't think I'd ever get there. :)

Moving can be a hassle, however there are a few things you can do to help ensure your moving experience is as easy as possible. One of the most important things you can do is to make sure you are prepared for the move before it is time to go.

Abraham Maslow once said, "If the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail." Having the proper tools is essential to making your move easy. What tools? I'm talking about packing supplies.

Having the proper packing supplies on hand will save you time, energy, and stress. Here is a list of packing supplies that you should have before you even think about starting to pack anything:

- Boxes- Yes, I know- that's obvious. But having the proper size and number of boxes is the important thing. Boxes are available from many places. A lot of business will give you extra empty boxes if you ask. Also, there are a wide variety of boxes for sale at packing/shipping services, home improvement and department stores, post offices, etc. Be sure to get different sized boxes. Large ones for light, bulky objects and small ones for heavier items like books. And don't be afraid to get too many. Many retailers such as storage facilities will buy back any unused boxes, giving you a full refund.
