Gorgeous views in stark contrast to yesterday's depressing Hamburg hostel with vibes from Eastern Europe during Soviet times... And today's rooms, drinks and dinner cost less than yesterday's bunk beds...
New type of advertising or invasion from outer space?
The police is leaving Hamburg by the dozen.
Edit: by the thousand.
Apparently there were 20.000 more police men than usual, in Hamburg over the weekend.
A long day's drive is over, and we are staying out of the way of the G20 chaos at a pretty depressing hostel.
I have a feeling we will leave pretty early tomorrow morning...
Today's report. They're working on a Saturday, to get ready on time! :-)
The sun was shining in Copenhagen, but no grey skies again...
We are leaving our house in Svedala for the last time. The cleaners have left and the key has been handed over to the new owners.
Departure minus 1 day. :-)
All packed up and ready to go!
Wow! Now it's happening with the speed of lightning!
Happy Midsummer to you all, with the typical Swedish midsummer rain. Today we are also celebrating Mattias's 46th birthday and our 16th wedding anniversary!
In little less than three weeks the Murgias will be enjoying the Sardinian summer heat.
Finally all the permissions came through. But will we be able to live here in three weeks' time!?
Packing up and taking furniture down. We are getting close!!!😱
I finished my job at Svedala kommun. I have at least two more days of work for Murgia Grafica and Genea Murgia, two-three days worth of budget and business plan work for Casa Murgia, Mogorella, and about a week's worth of phone calls, e-mails, and document compiling in preparation for the move. Seven more doctors' appointments (unevenly distributed among the family members), a dog with stress stomach, another garage sale this weekend, getting the car in for service, last minute goodbyes. Oh, and about a gazillion moving boxes to unpack, sort and repack.
A slight panicky feeling is starting to creep up on me. Only five weeks to go. I need coffee and a deep breath of Swedish June flowers...
Thank you every one!
Our house in Sweden is finally sold. We will hand over the keys to the new owners on July 7th.
The big move is closing in on us! Our dream is so close! The house is full of boxes being packed and unpacked. When we put the house up for sale a couple of months ago we were in a hurry to get it in exhibition mode and numerous are the boxes marked "Sort later"... Now that the deal is closed we can start packing for real. We have decided that a moving company would be to expensive, and have bought our own moving trailer, so we have to scale down the "Bring" boxes down to a total of 390 kg, that is the maximum weight the trailer is allowed to hold when it is pulled with our car. The "Save" boxes and furniture have to fit on 5m2, so that the storage cost won't ruin us. The "Sell" boxes are unlimited, so we hope to get a really good turn up on our garage sale next weekend!
The animals' rabies vaccination was just changed from tomorrow to Friday, as the vet had too many bookings tomorrow. Both cat and dog are acting like rebellious teenagers right now, since the house is a disorganized mess with all boxes and piles of stuff being sorted...
I have two more weeks of work and the kids four more weeks of school. We are really looking forward to get trough the messy part of the packing, and head out towards our own piece of paradise!
