My Sealed Pot is No More

 
Ooops, the first casualty of the move!!
 
My lovely Sealed Pot slipped through my fingers yesterday when I went to pick it up to pack it safely away ready for the move.
 
 
Suky the Pug was first on the scene to inspect the damage.
 
 
Luckily because it has just been emptied there was only a little bit of money inside the pot, imagine if I had lifted it the other week with all that change in it.  One less thing to pack!!  Poor Sealed Pot, it was brilliant while it lasted, luckily I have a suitable tin at the other house that I can seal up and continue our saving in.
 
The final push packing away all the bits and pieces of normal living is on now, to say we are living minimally would be an understatement.  We sleep on a mattress on the floor, we have the sofa and the small TV, the biggest luxury is in the kitchen where we still have the table and chairs, so at least Blogging and eating our evening meal is done in comfort.

  1. R.I.P. Sealed Pot... You were a constant friend to Sue and she will miss you more than you will ever know!
    And I will miss Sue, I made a quick visit to her yesterday for a cup of coffee and a lovely slice of cake:) and I left with a couple of hugs and a bottle of homemade Damson Brandy (hic) I have really enjoyed our catch ups and will have a bit of a longer journey to share a chat with her next year, but guess what she worth it! Thanks Sue, you are one Lovely Lady...... Much love Karan xxxx

    1. It was lovely to see you Karan, and we will meet again soon, after all we have family and the world to put to rights over coffee and cake!! And good news I have been invited by his other housemates to visit LH's new digs on a regular basis to save him a journey home from time to time, the next meet will be at yours :-) Now step away from the Damson Brandy!!

  3. Shame about the pot, it's the kind of thing that happens to me all the time. Glad you didn't have to pick a huge pile of coins out of all the broken shards. Can't be long until your move is done now, I'm guessing you can't wait. I'm very excited for you, it will be wonderful to finally be in.

  4. Oh dear, poor sealed pot. Still, I think youve done really well to only have had your first casulty now! Good luck with the final push, Im sure it will go well (as you seem to have done most of it already). How exciting to be nearly there. Its been a real inspiration reading about your journey and made me all the more determined to turn my dream into a reality. :o)

    3. Oh Karan, Im seconding Sue, you have to blog about it. My dream might take a bit longer, I want to return back to New Zealand (after being in the UK for 23 years), but my English hubby is taking a bit of persuading. Watch this space. :o)

  7. Hello Sue! Good luck with the move, it will bring you back home and closer to us here in Manchester and of course your mum! I am a Mancunian but my grandma came from not far from where you are moving to and I have a lifetime of happy memories of the area which is truly beautiful! Shame about the pot but as my own mum would say, "it's just stuff"! I wish you many happy years in hardd Cymru!

  9. We moved house 7 times before arriving here and we found there was always one thing that got broken.
    We are all counting down the days with you! I'm looking forward to hearing if the weather really is as bad there as everyone says!

  10. Such a lovely pot, oh well, good excuse to find another lovely one!! Good luck with the move, I really hope you will be in your 'forever home' for Christmas. Everyone seems to be moving at the moment, we are even moving offices!! We are 'fixed' here in Hampshire until the end of March, (but have a couple of trips planned) but then we will be on the move again - unlike most people, I cannot wait to see where our journey takes us this time!!. Please keep blogging as often as you can, we are with you every single wrapped plate and sealed box. X
