The lead up to October 30th, 2014 was stressful…. we found out that you can only pack so much beforehand…. and the rest is a last minute rush!

We still cannot find the playstation or Darren’s shed radio… but then there are still many boxes to be opened!

The guys at Maroondah Removals  were awesome! Thanks so much guys. They packed half our stuff into a container on the Wednesday – and then the rest of it Thursday. It was a constant thing on moving day, for every box that went – I found more stuff! Some of the boxes ended up “Toilet paper, kettle, maggs’ bowls and files” very mixed.
