It was twenty years ago when My wife and I finally retired and sold the large six bed home  with pool and other trappings and moved to the Central Coast of New South Wales  OZ.
     We bought a  two bed relocatable home in Budgewoi and lived there for nearly four years until changes to our surroundings became untenable and we sold up and rented a  waterfront property together  with our eldest son. .We lived there for nearly five years until the place was sold and we moved to where we are now living A two storey 4 bed DG ; we have been here nearly eleven years. And we shall be moving again soon as the owner decided to sell the place after we requested a new bath be installed with the cost being shared. However, we are in a bit of a tizz; it being near the festive season and thirty days notice when time starts  when notice is served..
       Our intention is to stay local, despite the offer of a years rent in advance if he fixed the bath problem, The owner can go and jump. . we are opting to rent a one level property local, yes we can afford it as  our income finances  leave us with more than double the cost of the rental  in savings with more assets enough to buy four Mercedes Plus.
We or shall I say I being the only person who moves his ass in this house will start the process of packing. despite the following problem which has afflicted me over the past two weeks. It was when I noticed the freezer section of our tall Kitchen Fridge was open slightly a 7 AM.  on looking a large frozen portion of meat dropped down on my feet and I have been hobbling since despite ex rays indicating no broken bones There was severe bruising and muscle pain which has persisted and has been a source of aggravation when after laying or sitting down, walking helps but one cannot keep walking Today I was prescribed a course of antibiotics , Hopefully there will be some improvement, the first line of this paragraph  was  read by my son and we had words which ended amicably. and hopefully I shall be on the mend soon.

I am so sorry.
I hope your poor sore foot heals quickly and that your son has been shamed into giving you some assistance.

E C.I always make sure all is secure and fridge closed and lights off before bed time, It was my son who must have not closed it properly after one of his midnight foraging sessions in the kitchen.

I cannot imagine packing up to move again. I have moved to 27 different homes in my lifetime. They are going to have to carry me out of this one on a stretcher. Would you believe that I too was hit by frozen food. This week at the grocery I reached up for a box from the store freezer and the boxes came tumbling out and struck my new glasses that I now have to have adjusted again. At least I didn't have any pain with the incident and my eye was protected by the glasses. Hope you can find some relief for you foot.

Beware the joint of meat. I've always worried that sort of thing could happen so I am very careful when packing up the freezer. When I think of your son, my mind conjures up someone twenty, but of course he would be much older.

Grannie Annie. The bridge of my right foot is still puffed up and sore to touch. will see the doc again on Monday. MY wife and I have lived in 5 different countries, I have had 32 changes of residence Rosemary 24.Sorry to hear about your specs. My problem was caused mainly by being in bare feet at the time of the accident.

A 4 bedroom DG? What is a DG please?
We had 4 and 5 bedroom homes when the kids were young and all living at home, now it's a one bedroom flat for me.
Hope your foot settles down and stops hurting soon.
