The first impact of this hit us as we had to figure out how to sift through all our belongings and cut them down to just what would fit into the car. So with meticulous thought and wisdom(?) we created piles - clothing, camping, hiking, swimming, cooking...and on and on. Soon we had piles of items that we thought we would need, as a minimum for each category, neatly (this is our version of "neatly") arranged in the lounge.
Then came the next task...how to get all of these "definitely needed" items into the car...just taking a look at it was enough to make us want to give up and stay home...it looked exhausting and impossible PLUS we were already behind schedule and Durban had graced us with a steamy 30C day.
