We are moving house in 13 days (eek! - just writing that down is scary!) and I am working for 6 of those days. I am knee deep in boxes and black bin liners of things for the tip/charity shop, and not sure I will be done in time without a nervous breakdown.

Any advice for getting things done and not losing the plot would be most gratefully received!

Packers - professional removal company. You go and sit in the garden while it gets done.

We are in a chain of 4 people and have been trying to move house for 3 months now. Solicitors at top of chain are being very slow and not coming back to queries from their client; however, we all want to move next week. Most solicitors in the chain are confident it can be done - but can't confirm. We are all packed up and all desperate to move. One family in the chain has suggested we all move anyway on the day we want next week and just the let the money sort itself out a few days later. Has anybody else risked this?
