As I stand in my studio wondering where to start, I curse, for the nth time in the last month, the zero tenure enjoyed by tenants in Australia.
Thanks to a landlord who wants to knock down this house and redevelop, we have to move. I'm self-employed, so the cost to me of no earnings for the next week is added to the truck hire, the disconnection/reconnection fees, the boxes, the mail redirection fees and all the other costs associated with moving house.
But possibly the most overwhelming part of all this is the task facing me: I have to dismantle, pack, move, unpack and re-mantle (?!) my entire studio. For the third time in four years.
I hate to get all complainy on you, but those industrial sewing machines are HEAVY!
