9 am. Serious packing calls for serious measures. Moving to a house half the size of this one. ActorLaddie says we need to be calm, purposeful and proactive. Agree.
Downloaded time-management book for Kindle which suggests making of list of essential tasks, prioritising and working through in order. Essential defined as only tasks related to job in hand.
