Moving House

Today the pace is gathering momentum. There remains only 10 days until we relocate to a new much bigger apartment. We have been living in the present one for 4 years and 3 months…incredible. Prior to this my record of staying at an address was 7 months! Having a child changes things…..One thing of noticeable interest is the amount of stuff a human being can accumulate in a 61 sq. meter space if they live there for 4 years….incredible considering I came to this country with a rucksack and a didgeridoo and now I have half a room filled with boxes and still plenty of stuff waiting to be sorted and packed around the edges of our dwindling living space. The move is booked for the 1st May and it will be quite a weekend with Walpurgis (Valborgsmässoafton) the same weekend and I leaving for Australia 6 days later…….ahhhhh.
Here is an early image of the moving procedure (thrilling stuff):

And here is a picture of something I will miss about his apartment, the mornings in the kitchen with the light (in spring and summer) streaming in:
