Looking up the Towy Valley from Dryslwyn Castle.
Jobs for today - buying a giant roll of bubble-wrap and then trying to decide WHICH boxes offer the best value and how many of the dang things we will NEED (trying not to think of books - apple boxes from Abergwili perhaps . . .) Anyone moved recently who can advise on boxes?!!!
I have to check out removal companies. Just had a chap round for a quote, but need a comparison as I don't think he has the level of expertise or insurance coverage. Update: have called for quotes from two removal firms who are in the "best 3" recommended in our area. It will be dearer, but I just want it all to be as stress-free as possible.
I have had two nights with scarcely any sleep - first one my lower back and hips were cranky and I couldn't drop off, and everything was going through my mind. Last night our plumber called to put one of our bedroom radiators back on the wall (a picture fell on it during Lockdown - screws only went into the lime plaster and didn't reach the stone wall.) As Rhys was here for an hour, we decamped elsewhere overnight - even though the window was open and he had a mask on. Better safe than sorry. I got the sofa as the spare bed in the master suite needs a new mattress. I found it so hard to sleep though - back and hips still v. sore and the sofa breaks into two for removal and my hips were on the bit where it joins!
I really MUST get my accounts finished and submitted and that's it, end of trading for us. It will just be "getting rid" after that. I have to do this now as we may not have internet for a few weeks once we've moved, so I am getting organized. Right, I must away and make some more phone calls.
