But if the move is to somewhere you're really looking forward to.. ?

Mmmm, definitely. *sigh* I really need to go through everything in my room, and toss as much as I can. I actually need so much less - just all the stuff in the three big storage boxes, f'rex. What need do I have of any of it, when I've barely opened any of those boxes in the last year?

Maybe I'll post lists in future entries, asking folks to send along postage and an optional extra for anything they're interested in, although I'm not sure how much demand there'd be for, say, a mostly complete Wallstreet needing a new PMU, or a 40-year old book on endocrinology I picked up at the exchange library in the Raven, back in Bath. (You're encouraged to either leave books, or make a charitable donation. Really good pub, definitely - if you ever have the good fortune to find yourself in that neck of the woods, I can happily recommend the Raven, the Salamander (just up the road), and the Bell, which does a very good line in live music, a few times a week.

I'm also (tentatively) pondering what I'll bring with me for the next move. That'll necessarily be limited, so, perhaps a very good thing just in that regard, let alone being a locale I feel so at home in. Though I might look into the cost of freighting a crate, given I'd like to bring Red along, and that'd be one baggage item by itself. =:/
Even if it's a good move, I find the preamble so stressful I'd give anything not to do it. Then it takes yonks for the new place to feel like home. Ugh.

Are you in a position to store stuff with family? That avenue closed to me when my mum sold my parents' old house, and I had to make Hard Decisions on a lot of my childhood possessions. My extensive collection of Biggles books is still at my boyfriend's, awaiting a time when I have room for it again :(
