OK, this is going to be extremely patchy. This blog entry will probably be a striking example of the kind of writing my high school teachers used to mark with "good content, needs MUCH more expansion".

I am moving to Melbourne. You knew that, right? Packers come tomorrow, movers come on Tuesday, cleaning happens Wednesday and Thursday. I have stuff packed to go into the car to cover the next week, the train journey East and the subsequent week(s) before my stuff arrives.

I have too many clothes, and I hate most of them. They're shabby and unflattering. I shall wear them anyway.

I had 40-ish kilos of barbecue-laden trolley edge hit me in the shins today. Ow.

My back hurts.

This makes me very unhappy. The train we're going on is the very next service after the currently cancelled ones. It'll be fine, right? Right??

In better news, I think I have everything we need for the coming weeks. I have ticked everything on my to-do lists.

I need to be awake in 6.5hrs, so I am off to bed. Night all. Probably will have net access at Chateau Hicks, but if not, see you on the other side.

All will be well, Shiv! :o) You'll see.

Also - Let me know if you'd like a hand cleaning. I can come around on my way home from work... can be there around 4ish.

Net, yes, unshaped tomorrow (erm tonight) at midnight.

I suspect it is in their financial best interested to cancel as few trains as they can. So if they DO cancel your train, it probably really really wasn't a good idea to not cancel it.

Best of luck! If you need a hand once you get here, I'll be happy to help :)

wow that came around quickly! I am sure it will all come together ok, and once you're in Melbourne any inconveniences here will fade into insignificance. I hope you can maintain and enjoy giddy, excitement about your move despite the stress of organising it all :)

Do you want me to come over and help clean on Thursday if Rowan lets me leave him at his first day of school? I doubt he will make me stay and I will be in the area anyway. I can put the little one in the Ergo and clean away!
