    I'm moving house tomorrow!

    That's right kids, I'm becoming an honourary southerner. I'm moving to Staffordshire, - "The Creative County", in preparation for starting my shiny new job.

    I'm opening a book on what I've forgotten to pack. Any takers?

    have you remembered all your packs of condoms?
    It would be such an embarassment to you, if the new owners call you up and..okay you can figure out the conversation on your own.

    Yep don't forget them condoms. Everything else can wait, or be bought again.

    Make sure to pack ALL your cooking stuff.
    My general rule of thumb is..if you haven't used it in 2 years, odds are you don't need it. Hope the move goes smoothly!

    Yeah, hypatia is right:
    You shouldn't take with you 2-year old condoms. Just throw the packs away.

    If he hasn't used them in 2 years, I would not bother bringing any at all :tongue2:

    Ha, I had genuinely not remembered to pack condoms! :smile:
    <rushes off to pack condoms>

    I've packed a fair bit of cooking stuff, and have raided mother's cupboards for spices and mango chutney. Can't find my wok though, I know it's in the loft somewhere but it's far too hot to be rumaging around. Not packed the computer or stereo yet, that's a job for early doors.

    Anything else? I usually forget stupid things like keys and phone charger. I'll try to remember those.

    Do you have all of your toiletries? Shampoo, soap, deodorant, razor, toothbrush? Dish soap, cleaners, sponges, paper towels, toilet paper, kleenex, bandaids.

    Check the laundry room for clothes.

    Thanks mum! I'd forgotten to pack most of that stuff, speshly the shower gel and toothbrush type of stuff. I remembered my toothbrush charger, just not the toothbrush itself.

    09/11. Got another 6 years yet...

    edit: wait nvm :biggrin:

    I certainly hope so, for your own well-being.

    My second rule of thumb, the tool you forget to pack will be the first one you need.

    Hah, the last tool I packed was my Leatherman, so that should cover a number of bases. Got a good knife, zip ties, gaffer tape, what more could I possibly need?! :smile:

    I've packed every tool I own, except for a few which my grandfather left me which I'll leave up here for now (am I really likely to need a kerf setter in the next few months?).

    Kerf setter?
    Has that something to do with knives or blades, as in serf cutters? :confused:

    It's for bending the teeth on a woodsaw so that they're not parallel to the blade. Alternate teeth should face away from the blade on alternate sides, to promote clearing of debris from the notch, and to prevent the blade from jamming.

    So, can you use it on serfs, then?

    I just dictionarified 'serf', and discovered that it was 'a person in bondage'.

    Uhhhh, I don't know what to say!
