Moth Balls and Related Issues

I never knew moths had balls. And judging by the size of it, I guess they must fly with their legs very wide open. I hope not too many were killed to obtain all those mothballs that went into the boxes.laugh

So, here we are. All that now remains is to unhook the curtains, fold them up and pack them in the last boxes. But that I will do tomorrow morning when the container arrives. Most of my personal stuff left with my sister earlier on. Less to worry about tomorrow.cheering

I would have liked to leave with them to sleep at my new pad tonight but it would be inviting trouble to leave everything packed and ready now that the dogs are gone. I will be sleeping in a sleeping bag on my couch tonight.sleep

I have hired 4 men to carry everything into the container tomorrow. Three of my friends will help me to make sure no crates or boxes can disappear between the house and the container. This is so typical South African; four people to supervise four workers!doh

Al thanks to my sister and her daughter who helped me to pack everything while their husbands kept me company and helped me to make sure that I need to pack less booze. Very considerate of them too. The remainder – naturally – will go into my car’s boot when I leave; not in the container. yay

At 1 PM I took a drive to KFC to get us some lunch and when I returned she provided me with a full inventory of each box. I did not think it was possible to pack everything in two half days, but here we are; all packed. I will have to treat them on a steak when I’m settled. I owe them big time.

What would the world be without family and friends?cheering

Hi Z
With our health regulations lately we would be risking to have a steak in any any way other than well done.

Hi Wel
Not much moving left. Almost everything goes into storage. My personal stuff is mostly at my new place already and the way I know my sister everything will be unpacked when I get there tomorrow.

All I need to do tomorrow is to seal a few last boxes, load the container and off I go with my laptop, phone and a cooler box. The only edible stuff in here is some KFC and a half bottle of wine.
applause cheering yay
Catfoot
Hi ZEu,
Thanks. All is done now. I wish the container could have arrived today as originally planned but that was not to be.

Hi Mimi
Yes, thankfully there will be no major unpacking. Everything goes into storage while I can look for another place at my own leisure. I may even consider to move a but out of Cape Town. Not too far though.

Hi 12121.
Well, as they explained it to me, the more bottles to transport the bigger the chances of a bottle breaking.

There is no unpacking oher than my clothing and a few other personal effects. I'm moving into a small furnished granny flat ay my sister's place. Everything goes into storage until I find a suitable place of my own again.

Hi Angel
We cut up old bus tickets into small pieces and scatter them in the back yard to keep the snakes away. It really works. There has not been a snake seen here in 80 years.

Old newspapers will also do.rolling on the floor laughing

All you need to do is cut it up to bus ticket size and then you cut it in smaller pieces again. Snakes cannot read and won't know the difference.

Hi Cat, wave just saying hi and hope everything goes as planned. bouquet

I don't know myself if I'm coming or going. sigh
Catfoot
Hi KN
The job is done. All that can go wrong now is the container not arriving as scheduled. To load it will take an hour or 90 minutes at the most.
hug wave
KNenagh
Safe trip for you and all your stuff Cat. hug
Catfoot
Thank you KN
Just for everybody's benefit. I will be moving 11 km closer to Cape Town.

Bob;
uh oh Where can it get old bus tickets?
Catfoot
Angel,
Normally you must buy new tickets and use it once so it can be old. Alternatively you can pick them up at bust stops where the people get off.
