    Thank you lovely mummies!

    I'm nervous as all hell thinking about uprooting and re-planting our lives (and furniture, and kitchen, and boxes and boxes of random crap etc), but you guys have all done it before and then some, so you're putting my mind at ease.

    Now to find a bungalow in Palmie, move and meet some locals, hit up the second-hand sites, then start teaching baby about frogs, crocs and cane toads.

    You'll be fine! Treat it as an adventure and throw yourself into the lifestyle! It really does make a difference. DH got out of the RAAF last year and we're currently looking at moving again before this baby arrives which will make six moves in five years :/ trust me when I say it's all about attitude and embracing it!

    Default Packing and storing things in a tropical climate

    Hello and happy Easter Darwin Bubhubbers,

    In preparation for moving to NT, we're just now wading through our tidal wave of stuff and trying to pack it neatly into boxes.

    Since we don't plan to store anything in Sydney, how can we best prepare our books, and more importantly winter fabrics (woollen clothes, blankets, leather boots etc) for being stored in a tropical climate? I'm wary of mould and mildew eating through things that we'll eventually need when we visit relatives in cold climates. Can you please share any tips and personal experiences!

    Cheers and happy chocolate/ hot-cross bun consumption

    We vacuum bagged all that heavy kind of stuff and left it with family. Blankets and coats.
    Best I could suggest is just lots of those moisture absorbing containers. LOTS and LOTS in all the cupboards, linen press etc.
    Plus run the air con occasionally in the in used rooms to dry things out.
    That's what we did and we never had anything go mouldy.

    Oh, and I never had a problem with my books. They were in a room we rarely used on a bookshelf and we just put the air on on in there every now and then, and a moisture absorber.
