I am burried in boxes with the assumption I will be moving this weekend, although our solicitor isn't spending an awful lot of time getting things done and is being extremely unhelpful generally. Grrrr I tell you if I ever see her out in town after a few drinks!!!!

Meantime two inset days means I have the kids home again ... Yipee. And hubby is driving me nuts .... just dont ask!!!!

We went and bought a plasma tv for the new house on Saturday - we spent a hideous amount of money on a tv that we will probably spend most of the time watching Scooby Doo on. Great huh. Nevermind whilst we were there hubby bought me a pressie - A dishwasher - I can hardly contain my excitement, what a wonderful gift to get a woman. As we were walking out of the shop he has the nerve to say "Dont expect anything for christmas"

Did you know Argos sell boxes? I was looking for toy boxes for the kids and came across these Given my present situation I thought I would take a look. £60 for boxes, I mean wtf, who would pay that?? I wonder if they ever sold any. Just go to the local corner shop. Yes I know thats completely random - Its been a long few weeks ok!!!!

Thats all I can think about is my new house at the moment. I eat, breathe and sleep whilst thinking about how we are going to move all our junk and where the sofa is going to go when we do.

I havent quite got my priorities list sorted yet as I am currently more concerned about whether or not I will have broadband and Sky TV as compared to ... shall we say curtains and carpets.

I am also amazed by the fact that up until recently I prided myself on not being a collector of random junk. However when I started to pack I discovered that I had been infact stuffing it into cupboards, attics, garages and pretty much anywhere else I could find a space - The result so far has been 8 trips to the local dump with an absolute shitload of useless crap I never knew I owned.

I mean I know I must have been feeling maternal at the time but why would anyone keep 16 pairs of baby socks?? What for ?? Oh and also can I just say keeping every birthday card your child has ever had takes up a surprising amount of room and is totally useless ... As are calenders for 2002 and 2003 and also broken clocks!!!! What can I say I must have had my head up my arse at the time.
