The Farewell Party in the City

Let the Games Begin!

overcast 18 °C

Thank goodness the weather held for most of us to enjoy mixing and mingling whilst supping from the endless supply of ice cold beer and wine on the deck! And wasn't it an experience to visit the inner city, curse finding a carpark, and be inquisitive about the apartment. Everyone appeared to enjoy themselves, and certainly everyone took to groovin' to the music and bumping and grinding themselves silly! And can't the Harn still groove to the Police, and didn't the red heels impress most of the men at the party! Lots of laughter, hugs, toasting, and kisses abound and its with these pleasant happy thoughts that the Houghts are nearly on their way. And good news......the bedroom is a lot bigger today, the packing has officially commenced ...3 suitcases ....now we're left to collect our money, tickets, passport for Elsie (its not yet here) haircuts, final lunches, ..........and then aboard the Thai flight on Thursday....!Leaving_party_026.jpgLeaving_party_061.jpgLeaving_party_045.jpgLeaving_party_018.jpgLeaving_party_035.jpgLeaving_party_044.jpg

Movin' on Out Moving On Up ..


Cripes, what have we done? We moved out of our gorgeous high spec. Newmarket luxury apartment today, from a 85m2 size pad, it took all day!! Seriously, we had the packers in from 9.30am and they finished unloading in the City at 3.30pm, Noel and I are exhausted, grumpy, tired, and wondering what the hell we have done!! Hey, caus celeb! Its our 27th wedding anniversary today (yes rrrreally) and he and I will be in bed early ....simply from tiredness. We are now officially living in suitcases ...we have less than a week here in godzone....We are down to one vehicle, one bed, one income, and more importantly ... one wallet ....!!!!!! god help us....thank god you are here to celebrate our departure and can't wait til Saturday 28th April, roll on its party time!!!
