Updates on the move… Day 4

22 02 2007

Well, not much more to report… just unpacking more and more boxes and putting stuff away where it will live for the next couple of years.

All I know is that this is strenuous and exhausting work! My back aches, my feet ache, my legs ache, my hands are wrecked, my nails are all broken…

One thing I have been doing most days though, is wearing a pedometer. Mostly because my feet have been killing me and I didn’t know why. Now I do. Almost every day I’ve been walking some 14,500+ steps around the house just moving boxes, unpacking boxes, shifting stuff from boxes into their new home, shifting furniture, etc. They reckon you should do 10,000 steps a day – well, for a sedentary computer person like me, doing over 14,000 steps each day is exhausting! At least I’m sleeping very well – a combination of the fresh air, the silence, the stars, and physical tiredness.

So, now I’m up to date with the blog. Tomorrow we’re off to Bunbury (an hour away) to get supplies we can’t get locally, from places that we don’t have in Bridgetown. Then we’re taking out S and G for dinner to thank S for all her help in organising the tradesmen. Saturday will be my last full day unpacking boxes, as we head off to Lake Towerinning (near Darkan) on Sunday to see friends who are racing in the West Australian Speed Boat Association’s ‘weekend away’ event.

Then on Monday I’m ‘back’ at work, though from home. A new chapter has begun…
