I can now count in hours (36) rather than days or weeks to the time of my move! I should be free by Tuesday lunchtime to start the first of three drives across Europe with all my stuff. The logistics are still horrific though, and right now I can't see more than ten days ahead. Tuesday I shall leave here in the jeep, with several boxes of belongings, to be in Normandy, France by 10 AM Friday morning when I have a meeting with the local Mayor to sort some paperwork. Friday night I will be on a ferry to the UK so that I can make the UK meet-up on Saturday in Leeds. Sunday it's Cambridge, to pick up the cat cages which are at my mother's. Then Monday to London and Tuesday back to France, in the van loaded with books, garden stuff and the cages. I will unload all but the cages at the house in France and drive back here in the van, which will take three days. After a day of rest, load up my furniture and computer gear, and set off again for Normandy. Unload the van, switch cars again ( I am hoping either my daughter or a friend will have driven the jeep to Normandy by then or else I will have to go back to London to collect it) and drive back here in the jeep ready for the last trip which will be just the cats and me! Please spare some travel vibes for me!
