so much to do and so little time!!!

there are packing boxes simply everywhere! I really do not enjoy this one little bit, and I am taking so long over it. I get a little rush, and find that I am quite ruthless with the sorting, and then next time I am completely and utterly useless and cannot bare to be parted with goodies. The trouble is, I really do NOT need to keep everything, but sorting out what to keep and what to discard is very problematic...

so these are packed ready to go,

but these still need some sorting and organising

This dresser is really stressing me, I cannot imagine that it will fit in anywhere in any of the Twizel houses.... so what am I going to do with all the fragile contents - storage?

and these will need new homes

so are you a hoarder... or can you be ruthless when having this sort of clean out!

but the pantry got a jolly good clean out

and I found these bears which were the children's favourites many years ago - how can one bear to part with these

stressed - what does that really mean -
dictionary definition: "pressure of load, weight, some adverse force or influence, condition of things demanding or marked by strained effort"

hmmmmmmmm...

Shiree, its a pain isn't it having to make all those decisions. Its funny though the things we treasure , everything has a special memory but remember the memory will always be there even if the item is not.
By the way do you make lots of fruit cakes cause there's lots of peel or glaced cherries in that pantry!!

I remember having this same experience when we moved here. I can't believe I got rid of all the things that I did, it was very much, and only a few do I miss or remember. Although the transition was chaotic and difficult at times, the result was definitely worth it. You can do it...hang in there! Hugs.

Oh what a job you have Shiree, I sure don't envy you. If they were mine I couldn't stand to part with those pretty blues and put the rest into storage, but that's me.

I can't bear to chuck out anything, especially when it has a sentimental value.
Hence why I am always in a mess!

I am a terrible hoarder. I don't envy you.

Wow, is this a permanent move to Twizel. How exciting. Will you have more time to create?
