Truck pulled up at 8.00 a.m. FULL LOAD at 11.00 a.m. All going to clockwork until Truck had flat battery!!
'No problem, we'll just push it' said the two Indian Removalists......'not me, I don't push trucks' says John.
Removalists and Luke proceeded to push truck down the street, even a workman tried to jump start, all to no avail. Visions of my furniture sitting on the street, being unloaded and loaded into another truck or towed to The Avenue had me in meltdown mode.
Two hours later after Mr. Marshal had fitted a new battery we we're on our way.
Arrived at the house and just started to unload when the rain came down.....fortunately, with no side fence the truck was able to backup near the Alfresco and unload thru the Triple Stacker Doors.
MUD!!!! to save our floors John and I lifted what we could before the Removalists donned thongs and completed the job.
All our work in the last ten days had paid off....with cupboards/robes full and furniture now in position, day one in our new home looked relatively comfortable.
|The bag lady.....no I couldn't get up!|
Garage is another story - no time for truck to complete a second load. Mostly garage stuff in boxes; our little green trailer will be up and down Thompsons Road yet again.
First night both sleeping in our new bed - priceless! We love our Home.
