I've also confirmed my moving date and hired a removal man who will look after my furniture at a cost that's way more reasonable than the first quote that I given. It pays to shop around. The costs of my campsite and storage are now well within budget and mean that there's lots of money left over each month for saving and travels.
I am by nature a happy hopeful soul who expects good things to happen and guess what? They do so very often! I have to warn you though that adopting this approach can really piss pessimists off big time. Silliness normally does a good job at dispelling the dark clouds when they threaten to gather overhead. Gloom and doom doesn't hang around for long. To be in possession of a heightened sense of the ridiculous is a very precious gift indeed.
