Excitement!

Fingers and toes crossed we are exchanging contracts on our house today with a completion date of March 12th so it's all systems go from here!

There's removals to arrange, packing to do and furniture to order. We have no sofa or bed so those are the priority items at the moment! We have been able to buy the current white goods from the vendor which saves us a whole lot of hassle yay!

Sofa wise it is between this one from John Lewis:


and this one from Marks and Spencer

I think we need to go and sit on them and see which is comfier!
I am determined to be organised about this move, so I have drawn and laminated diagrams of the new house, given each room a colour, printed off coloured labels for each room, and will be adding them to the boxes and tags. Overkill? Maybe.
This weekend I'm working nights and next weekend I'm off on a scrapping retreat (yippe, can't wait!!) so I think our evenings will be spent packing. Now I just need a list of where each item of furniture will end up, what boxes I want in each room and a box of emergency supplies!
