The day has arrived. The end and the beginning. The turning of the page, the leap into the vast unknowable*. Today is the day we move. And it's raining as we get up, and begin loading the final possessions into the car. The van containing the majority of our possessions left days ago.

The last few weeks have been busy. The nice kind of busy mostly; the travelling, catching friends for dinner, hiring wedding people kind of busy.
