Moving myself, my son and my book babies

As my long-time reader will know, I’ve been trying to sell my house for months. Well, we’re all systems go; the house finally sold. Settlement is at the start of August, but my son and I are moving into my parents’ place next weekend, until we can find our new, downsized home…

…which still needs to be big enough to hold not only two humans, but my study (which has a big writing desk) and a whole lot of books.

Books

At least once we set up in the new place I can make sure the bookshelves are correctly paired together. This random jumble has been bothering me for years!

It also means that I spent an entire day packing over 30 boxes of books. I did keep a few out to read over the next couple of months, but I feel weird about seeing the rest of my cherished collection packed away.

Books packed

These books aren’t all mine. Two of the boxes belong to my son. :p

Now I guess I’d better pack the rest of the house!

Anyway, that’s why I’ll be semi-MIA on the blog over the next week and a bit. However, a few excellent folks are providing guest posts, so you won’t be totally neglected! And I’ll still be around on social media … no doubt whinging about packing. 😉

Stay frosty!
