Packing up to move

Ugh, the novelty has worn off already. I’ve at least got a nice collection of green bags, boxes and garbage bags piling up ready to shuffled off to the new place on the weekend.

Hurrah! And I spent yesterday getting the gas, electricity and internet arranged. I’ve also put in my order for ink samples and two new (very inexpensive) fountain pens with Goulet Pens, I am desperately excited about them and already haiga are bubbling away in my mind, fitting themselves to different ink tones. It’ll be a few weeks before I have the net at my new place so the blogging might have to be a little patchy for awhile. I’ll do my best. Thankfully I wont be totally cut off as I have a little data included on my phone plan. I like being on the internet. I feel all connected and in the loop. I remember when I was in the homeless shelter, my mobile phone was my lifeline to the outside world. I was so attached to I slept with it in my hand. I feel a little bit that way about my computer now, although we have a more formal, restrained relationship and it stays on my desk. 🙂

If all goes well and I’m paid today I’m off to pay the deposit and advance rent on my unit, and get down to some more packing. Wish me luck!

  1. Thanks Carolyn. 🙂 I agree – for everyone out there complaining about how facebook/internet/texting are depriving the world of real communication, there's those of us with disabilities and limitations of some kind finding that it opens doors to communication and connects us. 🙂


  2. I wish you all the luck in the world Sarah. I'm glad it's all coming together for you. Connecting to others is one of the lifelines for anyone who is marginalised in any way.

    I've had that feeling over the years, being a mother, feeling alone, and now having a disability. My computer means I can be connected to other people who are living what I'm living, and it's such an empowering thing.

    Have fun, and again, good luck with the move and getting things going in the new place!


I appreciate hearing from you
