Only rarely do fish tanks escape this fate... congrats on your new place Ada!

Most always, or goes missing. Can't say I've ever moved or entrusted someone else to move a fish tank though, with the fish in there.

Yeah we've a 240 litre, 4 foot fish tank full of fish which ok not the biggest not the smallest but it needed moving from one house to another and I was worrying like hell just how I was going to do it.

Let the sharks eat the small fish first. That's how I do it.

So far the fish tank doesn't leak, we've not lost any fish and hey in the end up we even managed to find a space for that old chesterfield single seat I was worried about.

Thank you very much John x (hug)

Oh God Carla the worries I've had over the last month love, at one point I thought I can't get all these big heavy jobs done I've not the strength or energy anymore.(swt)

Anyway in the end, I found that extra gear I'd been looking for all along and we got it all done!(smile)

The likelihood of something being damaged goes up in proportion to it's value, either in dollars or sentimental value.

Sentimental value is a very hard one Jim. I mean I'd things I've had all my adult life which just ain't of any use to me now but still didn't want to let go of.

Those are the tough ones Ada. An old chair that used to belong to your Grandparents, a picture drawn by your 5 year old, 30 years ago, or even a stupid wall poster from the 70's that brings back memories......

Absolutely the memories they have. It's funny you mention old chairs as I've a Chesterfield three seater settee with a matching single chair that's been in family nearly 30 years which at one point I thought I'd have to ditch the single seat and yes old pictures my daughter had drawn I've a box full of them too in the loft.

Yeah, I just moved a month or so back and busted a couple of things and am missing some things too. Luckily? Nothing big to fret over.

Or something gets lost. I have lost covers for special cooking dishes, keep thinking those will turn up, but it has been years since I last moved.

There have been a few pots and pans missing and an end table was damaged. The movers paid us for it, it wasn't worth replacing.

I have three weeks to move out, don't know where, but I am not going to get my helipad repainted again.

EDIT: Does anyone fancy a freshly out-of-the-closet mummy? Auntie needs a new home.
