BIRTHDAY BEAR HELPS US MOVE

We took some time off from culling and packing to go to the Sunnybank Hotel for a birthday lunch for Bill. We joined our Birthday Bear friends again. If you are not familiar with our Birthday Bear Tradition read here. This time Bear was dressed as a removals man. He had already packed some boxes and had his truck ready for the move. (Previous posts tell about our move)


Back of the truck

Helen, Bill, me, Ann, George and Mary
Helen dressed Bear this time. Chris and Bob couldn't be with us due to a prior arrangement. I have been   too busy to find time for much blogging. I hope to catch up with you all when we settle into our new home.

  9. In between your birthday club birthdays, I'll bet BB could get some temporary work -- everybody needs help when it comes to moving. Carry on! Don't let yourselves get too exhausted. It may be downsizing, but it's a BiG step!

    Thank you, Diane, for taking time out of your busy move to make this post.
    Hope you two take lots of time outs to relax from the move.

  15. Catching up with you, Diane, and of course surprised that you and Bill are moving but I fully understand the why behind it and I'm happy you found a place you will enjoy! Moving is a big task--I did it four years ago when we left our house of 36 years to move west to Colorado, but all in all it was the best thing we ever did. Hope all goes smoothly for you. I look forward to seeing your new lace! Best wishes on a new adventure!
