Moving News

Thought I'd share a cross stitch of my mother's with you. She created this by making a pattern out of a photograph of my daughter. Isn't her work amazing?

We had a letter (via snail mail) today saying out tenant is moving out next Wednesday, so we can move in to our new house early! We also had a phone call saying the new owners of the house we currently occupy want to move in on Friday, which is the day we are moving out!! Yikes! This changes how we are packing and the speed at which we are getting things done. Most of the rooms are packed up. I am not sure how we shall get things cleaned before the others start moving in though. We can only do what we can do.

I am hoping this means we won't have to double handle our gear now. We can maybe move straight into our house instead of having the stuff unloaded at our son's place first (we thought we couldn't have our house till the end of July).

On the papercraft front, I received a lovely RAK (Random Act of Kindness) early birthday card from a lady I have never met in Ireland. I wish the card hadn't been packed before I scanned it. I hope to find it again once I get settled down south.
