Thread: Finally moving house!!!

I hadn't actually noticed the gate was different. We actually want to replace it with a solid one so people can't see down the sideway.

I think you are right that the Googlemaps images are quite old, as the tarmac on the drive looks quite new and as you see the plant trellis on the walls doesn't have plants on it.

The council also look like they are resurfacing the road this week too, so that will be good before we move in.

Look out for Tar in the house if they are re-surfacing....

I still have some concerns about you Flooding though......

Is that because of it being in Bognor?

You looked up the street called North Bersted. My road is Greencourt Drive and that is 6 metres above sea level. With no history of flooding.

You can't expect to be that high above sea level when living on the coast. Although, saying that our old house in Fishbourne is 8 metres above sea level according it that site! Although the flood survey we had conducted stated it was 4 metres, which I tend to believe more.

Only 3 more days to go now until the move on Monday.

I've been off work this week to pack the whole house up myself and I'm slowly getting there. Biggest job was the loft as it has been added to ever since we moved in (2006), so there was a lot of stuff up there. Took all yesterday to sort that out with the help of my dad. I couldn't believe how many boxes of Tom's baby and toddler clothes we had up there (about 15 moving boxes worth).

There's also been a few trips to the local dump to get rid of a lot of stuff out of the garden, shed, loft and some horrible furniture that's seen better days.

In a way it's good to move house as it forces you to go through everything you own and really sort it out. Getting rid of everything you really don't need.

The current owners of our new house also didn't mind us taking all the garden plant pots to the new house last weekend, so that saved some time on moving day.

It seems so easy when you move, at least for me, I can easily separate myself from stuff, my girlfriend is not so good regarding that. Since 1-2 years I want to tidy up a bit at home, as nothing has been done since I/we live there. You can clearly see that 2 people already can hoard a lot of stuff after a certain time, mainly buying new stuff AND keeping the old one instead of getting rid of it straight away. I always want to do it, as I know exactly what I wanna keep and what I won't keep, but missus has a bit more problems with that.

Very much the same. My wife won't get rid of anything, keeping shoes and clothes even when they are worn out. And old furniture, which I've nearly managed to get rid of.
