usually I am a goddess of the last minute, and leave getting ready for anything to the last possible date, and then burn myself out in a mad panic.
this time I have decided (ok Mr Driftwood has politely suggested using a different strategy) that we will be organized, and start packing non essentials now.
so we aquired a stash of supplies
that now looks like this...
Alice sent me a very helpful link explaining about packing, and the importance of labelling, so I asked the children to decorate their boxes so we knew whose they were.
I am not sure they quite understood the concept, but no doubt it will make the removal van driver smile.
