On Thursday the truck with our belongings arrived at the Parkside Cottage. The two movers already had arrived the day before, but were unable to reach me as I was in my tutorial at the university. On Wednesday evening I met the two guys in the nearby pub "Beulah" where we had a beer together. I had been concerned if the large truck would fit through that narrow one-lane road that leads to our cottage, but they were optimistic. And true, next morning as I looked out of the window and was wondering when the truck would arrive, it just came.
They estimated 2 hours for the unloading, but it took a total of 6 hours. A few boxes had to be put into the garage - no place in the house anymore.
And now that the movers have left, the house is full with the boxes and the wrapped furniture. A lot remains to do in the next weeks.
And after the first unpacking, we already discover a few damaged items. This makes us less optimistic for the rest of the stuff...
