We helped Chantelle and Daniel (Kathryn’s sister and brother-in-law) move on Saturday. It was a pretty good move, as moves go. Pretty well everything was packed up already, and most things were labelled with post-it notes to tell us where it was going. Some was going to storage, the rest was going to Jeanette’s, where Chantelle and Daniel are living at the moment. So we had two trailers and two teams of people, one for each target location. It went really smoothly, and was all over in a few hours.
I’m not a big fan of moving, though. I think it’s the packing that gets me. It especially annoys me if I go to help someone else move, but nothing is packed up when we get there. I had a few horror stories like that when I was a missionary for the church, in Switzerland and Germany. Had some really good ones too.
We’ll be moving soon, though. For those who don’t know, my parents have been asked to run our church’s Temple here in Adelaide for the next 3 years. It’s the big granite/marble building on Lower Portrush road. Like all positions in the church, it’s a volunteer thing. But it’ll be full on, full time, so dad is retiring from dentistry and selling his practice. But, they do get to live in a house just behind the temple for the next three years. Which means we get to move into their house.
Fortunately, we don’t have too much stuff, so it should be a pretty easy move. Except that we’re upstairs here. And it’ll certainly be lovely to have some more space. Kathryn had just started teaching from there too, so that will be really convenient for her. We kind of feel bad at the moment, since that is dominating their front lounge room for now. But soon it will be our front lounge room, and renamed the music room!
Soon everything will be ours.
