They have sold their house and are waiting to move into their new house which has not settled yet, so most of their furniture needed to go into storage. Us oldies were conned into helping them and by 9 am it was all systems go. David had hired a big van, which we had to load with all their stuff. Most of it was ready to load and it seemed easy just to do that. Wrong!! In Oz we just back the vehicle into the driveway and proceed with the task. Here in Chelmsford there is no such thingas a driveway, and most of the vehicle parking is done in the street. The closest they could park the van was about 20 meters from the house so a lot of to-ing and fro-ing was involved.Some of us were the carters while the others were the stackers. All of us had some input as how it should be done, but were soon put in our place by David and Rick who proceded to load the van
Claire had booked a table for us at a local restaurant called the Bay Horse, for us to have a late lunch. It was a very nice meal and a lovely way to finish a very successful day. Very good food and great company.
We had a great day today . David and Claire appreciated our help but I must say we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the same time. So here we are now the 4 of us, tummies full, happy and contented .
What a fun day it has been.
