28th May 2011 Carry on moving

It was a reasonably early start this morning. Around 9am, having been joined by Cliff and Chris (Claire’s parents) ,the team set to work moving and cleaning. Things went well although the constant up and down stairs from one flat to another was taking its toll on our calf muscles.  By lunchtime most items had been moved, although the dreaded heavy three seater sofa remained. But fear not, the cavalry was due to arrive  after lunch in the shape of Colin, Claire’s younger brother.  The extra muscle proved invaluable when moving the sofa. By 5.30pm the move was completed and the new flat was looking good. We all settled down to watch the football – Man. Utd. v Barcelona -whilst eating a marvellous chicken pie cooked by Ben, served with lashings of wine. A late night was on the cards!!!

    Mr.P, I’m not sure how accurate the description of the ‘helping move home’ was (unless retirement has changed you that much!), I don’t remember reading ‘I stood there ordering people about’ using phases like “have you got a minute” or “could you just” and “where do you think your going?”…… although finishing the day watching football and drinking wine sounds just like the Mr.P I remember!. The blog is great daily reading for all and painting a lovely picture of the life after retirement.
    Keep it up!
