Moving house



My wife and I are soon going to be moving to a new house. This is excellent as we've been stuck in a 'merely adequate and even then not always' flat for the past four years. But it also means the blog will be shut down for the next couple of months as what would usually be painting and gaming time becomes packing time...

If anyone has any great ideas about how to safely move box loads of miniatures and terrain, please feel free to share. At the moment my plan merely consists of shoving bubble wrap around things, putting the box files in moving boxes and then hoping for the best...

And don't even get me started on the amount of junk I've accumulated. All those scraps of card, bits of plastic, articles torn from magazines and various bits and bobs which 'might come in handy'. Argh!

The move should be taking place sometime in September, probably towards the end of the month, so I expect to be in a position to post again in October. I'll have to plan something special!

Thanks all for reading and commenting on my blog. See you again soon!

    1. Cheers, Gaj! The funny thing is that, now I am facing the reality of packing all my stuff away for a while, I suddenly want to get stuck in to all the projects I have on the go!

    1. Not that far. Just by Cofton Park, there is a new-build on the old Longbridge Works.

You may also want to place such things in a suitable container. Make sure it doesn't have space to topple on inside the carton. Nonetheless, you can always consult with a reliable removal specialist for extra help. We hope to see more of your “moving out” phase-posts in the near future. Good luck on your journey!

    1. Well, I'm not planning on moving to Australia, where your removal firm appears to be based, but if I am, I'll let you know.

      Actually, no I won't. I hate spammers.

  4. Moving could be hard sometime so to make it easier is to hire a moving company to help you moving. good luck.

    1. Thanks, Tony. I'm all moved now and it went well. Managed to shift my miniatures myself, so I am happy they were well treated!
