Recipe For Moving House

Take one reasonably settled existence. 

Add some hopes, some dreams, a dash of ageing. 

Throw together the past, the present, the future, some friends, some family, a pinch of mortality. 

Fold this mixture into a house full of possessions – furniture, books, china and cooking pots - and a shed full of stuff.

Wrap in butchers paper and pack in cardboard boxes. 

Pour into a 20-foot container.

Drive down the driveway, taking in all that you see

Adding slowly that this will be the last time 

Lock the padlock on the gate - with you keyless on the other side

Ship goods across Bass Strait and follow in ute.
