Apologies for absence xx

Hello everyone, just wanted to apologise for my absence from the site.

I am in the process of moving house.

We should finally move in on the 20th of this month.

However, I fear the work load in trying to decorate the house (renamed by me as the “money pit”). Will keep me very busy for some months (possibly years! LOL)

So,may I respectfully, beg your forgiveness, in my tardiness to reply.

My husband celebrated his 80th birthday party yesterday. So we had a break from the endless packing. Back to it today.

I read about everyone not sleeping. I understand this all too well. Up and running at 4.30 am this morning, which is a good thing for the packing hubby says. LOL.

I think I understand now why I used to hear people say, “oh I am too old to move house”. At 68 I think I am too old LOL. I also think my bloods are dropping again as I am exceptionally tired and breathless again! Or could this just be the move !

Thinking about you all constantly. So, if I am not around much, please forgive, and know I have not forgotten about you.

Stay strong and happy everyone.

Happy belated Birthday to hubby 👍. What a star! Oh and of course you are too 👍😀.

Hope it goes well on Wednesday!!

That me to a tee ! Much more than you know., new life, new home. Thank you so much Ofeckman xx Jaycee

Congrats Jaycee on the new digs! I know a few things about packing and moving, it can be very stressful. Take care not to overdo and try to rest up, and eat well.

I love to decorate! If you need any help, please PM me, l am not a professional, but decorating has been an interest of mine for the past 35 years. Here's your chance to make this home truly yours!

Oh bootandall,what a lovely thing to say. I am useless at decorating walls and such. Painting and redoing kitchens. That’s the bad news.

On the plus side, in my life I have owned 3 businesses.

The first was a removal and storage company - so that comes in handy right now.

Then I went on to weddings in my then home of Cyprus. So once again I was dealing with stressed out folks. So that helps my stress level !

I also had a decoration company where we went into a venue and made it look wonderful for the brides day.

Again it just may come in handy with my purchase of “The Money Pit”.

LOL. However confident I am NOT.

It’s just not my thing.

I am 100% sure you are way more qualified to decorate and do the interior design aspect. I have worked all my life but never doing things like this in a home. This is all new to me.

I also feel the older I get, the less able I am to make a decision!!!

So a new learning curve for me.

Thank you so much xxx

You most certainly are qualified then to manage your projects well. If l can help you gather your thoughts, it is really just a matter of thinking it through ahead of time. I enjoy that process very much, so the offer stands if you want some hand holding, l would love to help! ☺️

Be settled for Xmas Jaycee. X

Thank you xx

Thank you everyone xxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Jaycee,

Good luck with the moving and decorating! Even better luck with the packing!! During our moves my husband does his stuff, I do the special dishes - some are old & then the others are wedding gifts :-). I usually end up using large garbage bags for all my other stuff LOL.

Are you both good packers?

Keep yourself healthy while moving - always a stressful activity.

Best wishes,


Sending you good wishes for your move jaycee, take care of yourself,

Warm wishes
