So, it starts here.

This is our last week in the UK.

Passports – check.

Visas – check.

Tickets – check (i hope)

So its just the packing to be done now – the simple process of parcelling a 2 bedroom flat into 4 heaps:

1) Ship to the US

2) Store for a year

3) Pack in a case to go on the flight

4) Get it out of the house – Oxfam, my sister, anyone else who will take things from us.

Oh, how simple it all sounds when you list it like that. My contribution to this so far has been primarily the placing of small sticky dots on various items, colour-coded to correspond to the groups above. On the other hand, I may be confusing ‘contribution’ with ‘displacement activity’.

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
