      Josi - I totally agree with Jumble - having moved (and no more of that since I bought a place now - like you) 4 times in 6 years...... don't bother cleaning much - instead start packing and packing and packing - and besure to label boxes with the following:

      1 - Your Name
      2 - box #? of ? (if you lose one it really helps) = especially good for longer moves)
      3 - What room to put it in (kitchen, bedroom, living room, bathroom - you don't want to be moving them around yourself.
      4 - What is in box. Pots, sheets, books, etc.
      5 - and most important BREAKABLES -- PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Never had anything broken!

      Then keep a list of the boxes and if need more details - to help you find special or important things first. I used a lot of bubble wrap and saved myself a lot of trouble. It takes effort, but you can wrap and watch the tele at the same time. And an added bonus - if you own a cat - they love climbing to the top of the boxes and watch!

      Then after you move out you will have an empty place to clean = a lot easier. Only exception might be the sinks and toilet = I still gave them a quick cleaning (maybe not as often) but a necessity! But dusting and vacumning - loved putting that away for awhile!

      Oh and best idea - if you have something that you just can't bare to lose or break - move it yourself. Because it will without a doubt be destroyed by the movers. This is an absolute that every mover swears to I am sure!

            Oh I'm not going to clean this place when I move out! I'd rather put my energy into cleaning my new flat so that it's all clean for when I get the furniture in. I've decided to suck it up and pay for cleaners to come in and do this place once I get my stuff out. Can't face it myself. Just needed to do a bit of surface cleaning today (sinks and loo, pretty much) so that it's not a complete health-risk of a place for me for the next couple of weeks, since next weekend I'm starting the packing in earnest.

                    There is a quote today on the Sanctuary site that is in line with our discussion of the other day:

                    'Down in their hearts, wise men know this truth: the only way to help yourself is to help others'.

                    ~ Elbert Hubbard


                    Thanks to Pengyn, SamJackShipLover and Mala for the sig.

                      So did you? I opted to watch Conan The Barbarian instead. I mean I like Downton well enough but, *sigh* Jason Momoa mostly shirtless? Hmm, bit of a no-brainer.

                      I think you're the only nation to have it yet. It premiered in Canada the night befor U.S. and is not on itunes for the UK yet. I wasn't going to buy it on itunes this year and was planning on waiting it out but, when I mentioned it to Ewan the other day his face kind of lit up and I realised I'd unleashed a monster when I converted him, so it looks like we have a date with Castle and Beckett every Tuesday evening for the next several months.

                      I also found myself smiling and thinking of this thread and everyone on it when I was reading the Good Deed section in the Metro today.

                          Oh no. I've committed a terrible terrible sin.

                          I've only gone and 69'd elsewhere.

                          Bad woohoo... bad, baaad woohoo.

                          (I blame Sil; talking about Castle made me go look at the Castle thread on here and there was a funny clip and I lol'd)
                          Apparently you enjoyed it Sil, if the grin is anything to go by. No... don't spoil it.

                              I did, but I found my attention wandering - never a good sign. I'll see how it goes over the next couple of eps.

                                Let's add one more grin.
                                There is however a nasty cliffhanger at the end. I don't like those.


                                This Woohoo is now back home in Ottawa after spending the weekend in Montreal. (No classes on Monday means I can get back later!) It's funny how this weekend made me realize that in a really short time Ottawa felt like home. It's not entirely 'Home' yet -- my parent's house is still home -- but I was really happy to come back today! And that's a really good sign if you ask me.
