The end of another busy day, and we have now said farewell to Stonestack. I wonder whether we will ever live there again?
It has been a long, hot and exhausting day clearing out our remaining belongings and making sure the house is left in a reasonable state for our new tenants. We had some help from a professional cleaning company but there was still plenty for us to do.
I managed to have one last fire (am I becoming a pyromaniac!?), and the day ended with a skip arriving which we filled up within 15 minutes and sent it on its way.
After some final tidying up, we packed our remaining stuff into the car and then took a few minutes to have a look round the empty house, which we have never actually seen in that state before, having moved in before it was all finished.
It was then time for us to head over to Jo's parents in Ainsdale, where we are spending the night prior to heading off on holiday tomorrow.
The last couple of weeks have been hard work at times, and it was sad to leave Stonestack, but I think we can be proud of what we created there, and we can now turn the page to a new chapter of our Arabian Adventure.
