Moving house...finally it seems

I think bel ragazzo and I may finally be moving house on the 1st of August (nice...peak of summer...great time to move...highly recommended especially if you have to move not only a house, but your office too.)

Today the agent has only bothered me a thousand times (normally it is a million times a day) and my office are in the process of transfering a nice little sum into their bank accounts. The new place is in San Giovanni which is a prime location - it is actually in the Piazza itself which should be nice! It is much smaller then the house we are in, there is no air-conditioning and the bed looks a little small (ok, well ours is king size here!) but then I don't care - as they say it's all location, location, location and since we were rushed to move we did not have much choice.

The agent and the owner of my current place are meeting with me tomorrow night to return the deposit and do a metre reading...and hopefully exchange keys. The agent offered to just give me the remaining deposit once she deducted the bills the company has to pay...but I kindly informed here I want ALL of the deposit back, I want to see the bills we are expected to pay and then if I agree with them, I will pay. Furbo...trying to get me to hand over money without seeing any bills. really....

So now I am in crazy packing mode - alone - as bel ragazzo of course (Sod's/Murphy's Law) has a consulant here from the UK that he has to escort to all the hotels from yesterday to 1st August. Literally just the days we need to be packing and to be moving! Che palle so Tour Guide Leanne is trasloco Leanne for the next few days.

Currently our bedroom looks like this:

I have a year worth of office supplies to transport looking a little something like this:

And then this pile of boxes and bags has only just begun...I have to get back to it now and keep piling up the boxes.

Ciao Lulu,
It is a lot of boxes...oh well. At least we have found a house to put them in!

Oh my goodness, all those boxes! This is why I am too lazy to move. Good luck! I hope you don't have to do all the carrying!
