Ready for shipment

“This is to confirm that our moving team is scheduled to arrive at your address on Monday between 8-10am to collect your belongings for shipping.”. This message popped up on my phone this morning.

Oops, that is an sms with impact. Not that we did not expect it, I did book it after all. But it does make it sound very final. Are we ready yet is a question we hear a lot lately. What, mentally, physically?


We came here with the luggage that we brought on the airplane and we had every intention of doing the same after we lived here for three years. We have limited down a lot selling through Gumtree and our yard sale.

However, for some reason we kept postponing to put our dining  table on Gumtree. When we then found out that shipping 2-3 M3 costs about twice as much as sending 2 or 3 boxes by airmail, we took that as a good excuse to not sell it.

Well I guess with a whole moving team on it’s way, we’d better get ready. Just a weekend to go. So back to my lists again.

This is the table and the benches that are the source of our shipment…well, now we can also bring our Palm Christmas tree!



Mother, wife, explorer and loving the outdoors. We recently moved to Australia, so lots to explore here. We are keeping a blog about our experiences of moving and living on a different continent as a family.
