We now find ourselves back on land after four great months aboard Caxton. It is time to get our cottage ready for its transfer to new owners. So we have a task list as long as your arm; packing of summer clothes to go aboard Caxton, pack remaining clothes to be stored, dismantle wardrobes, pack spare bedding, clear out and clean assorted cupboards. A removal company is coming this week to give us an estimate for the move and we have made arrangements to take the caravan into secure storage nearby.
I am now sitting here with the fires lit in the kitchen and the sitting room. We have run out of heating oil - now on order and due on Thursday doh.. The painful thing is that I have had to buy 500 ltrs as a minimum delivery, bugger, bugger, bugger.
The two dogs are not in the least bit phased by the chaos around them, they are sprawled out in all this additional space, - hang on, who am I kidding? They still sprawl out in the confines of the boat, we just have to work our way around them - no change there then.
I'll tell you what though, even after just four months, this place doesn't feel like home anymore. Roll on getting back to Caxton for good.
