The days are just flying by, aren't they? Can you believe we're already in October? Well, we are! And what an October it's going to be this year!
I did start writing a post about the things that would be going on in October - even though I'd mentioned almost all of them at various points recently - but it would end up really long - even compared to how my posts usually get - so I'll say this instead:
This time in three days we would have checked that every single item is packed up ready to come with us, and be getting ready for the almost 6 and a half hour journey we have ahead of us to get to our new home. We leave this place at about 7:40am on Wednesday (October 5th) and will get to the estate agents that are dealing with the property we're moving in to just after 2:00pm Wednesday. By the time we've sorted out the last couple of things we have to sign, paid the rest of the money, grabbed the keys and made it through the door of our new home it's going to be probably at least coming close to 2:45pm. So, in total we're looking at a little over 7 hours from leaving one property to arriving at the other. It's going to be a long day!
I "should" be able to get online Friday evening (October 7th) - providing they don't have any unforseen issues with setting up our internet in the new place, and also providing my laptop plays nice - so I "should" be here in time for next week's Get Off Your Broom check-in. In case there are any issues with me getting online that day and it ends up taking until the Monday (the 10th) instead or something, I have posts set up for you from tomorrow until the 10th; partly to give you something to read, and partly because one of them I'd have been putting up on that day anyway, and the others... Well, I wanted to get them posted soon, and this week seemed like a perfect oppertunity to do so. I'll do my best to keep up with your blogs between now and Wednesday, but we have a couple of last minute things to do (mainly involving cleaning - to make sure the place is left in the best shape we can leave it in - and packing up the items we can't do until the last minute because of needing to use them) so I'm not making any promises about how good of a job I'll do with reading blogs; especially since I now follow a lot of blogs! The good thing is that I wont be distracted with Facebook... Jaws just can't cope with it, and since the updates they did recently even the new Jaws demo that Kelly has on his PC (which is the new Jaws with a 40 minute session limit) can't handle it properly. So - since I was only on there to please others, and a part of me didn't want to be anyway - I've put up a message on my wall saying where people can find me if they want, and will be deleting my account after the move. If people don't like it, too bad! I tried my best to be on there, but it's just not worth the hastle; and not good for my laptop and Kelly's PC to have Jaws give so many error messages that the computers freeze up and have to be forced to shut down by pressing the restart button.
Kero seems to be excited about the new move. I think he is a bit concerned we're leaving him behind though, because he keeps going and sitting with the boxes that are packed as if to say, "don't forget to pack me too!" Bless him! We've told him it's OK, and that he's coming, and about, "walkies by the seaside," and such, but I'm not sure if he's excited because we're making it sound exciting, or excited because he understands. I think he understands, but the fact he keeps putting himself with the packed items makes me wonder if he fully understands.
Right, well, I think this is enough from me for now... Enjoy whatever's left of this weekend, have a good week, stay safe, and enjoy the posts I have set up for you in the coming days! :)
P.S. To those on the Get Off Your Broom challenge with me; I visited what blogs I could, and commented on what I could. However, with a combination of navigation issues, word verification, and the fact that embedded comment forms sometimes give me errors and don't let me post (that last one several people have had issues with over the past few months from what I can tell) it made it difficult to do so. So, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm here supporting you the best I can, and if I didn't comment, it's because I couldn't.
