Moving - New Beginning Or A Royal Pain?
 
# 1 : Friday 28-8-2015 @ 23:01
 
 
So, I recently moved abode and during the past couple of weeks have also been clearing out my late father's house - which was the family home for 40 years - to hand over to the new owners. The amount of stuff in my dad's house which needed sorting and clearing was unbelievable.

They say moving is one of, if not the most, stressful life event. Having to pack everything up and then unpack it at your new abode can be a right pain. Then again, it's also a fresh start in your new place.

So what do Gaireans think of moving? Has anyone moved more than once within a year?

I don't mind moving - if you have a solid plan in place, the resources to ensure that vital goods and boxes get where they need to go then its grand. The packing is a pain tho - I think we all forget how much we all own/hold onto until we have to move it.

My family are very much minimalist in style and keeping so I've always felt like I'm being more then self gratifying when I still never the less gather things about me (they ahbe to eb either pretty or practical however).

When I moved to Dublin a few years back I had 22 boxes of books - which is beyond insane - I donated most of them since I got here (tho the spare room is flooded with them again).

Moving is a wonderful chance to clear out the old, salvage what you need and love and get ready for the next chapter

I don't think I even want to get started on this subject. In the 15 years since I left Portugal for Ireland I must have lived in about 12 different places.

I'm so sick of moving!

Now I'm in a basic but very nice apartment with a great view and reasonable rent, I never want to move again unless it's to finally move to Schleswig-Holstein (North German State) where I always wanted to live.

Otherwise I'm staying put.

Ok, I lived with my parents till I was 25 and we never moved, but once I moved to Dublin in Autumn 2000, I've been collecting apartments! Apart from Dublin also lived in Glasgow, Ballina Co Mayo) and now Frankfurt...

Cottage Co. Kildare (few weeks)
Hostel!
Pearse Sq D2
Christchurch D8
IFSC (Boog standard ap.)
IFSC ( Clarion Quay Apartments, fancy pants! )

Glasgow (Queen's Park Area)

Dublin (again!)

Leeson Park D6
Hostel!
Leeson St D4
Mespil Road Apartments

Move to Ballina

Shiny new apartment
Semi-detached with fire place

Move back to Dublin!

Another studio apartment in Mespill Estate!

Move to Frankfurt

Over a year in a tiny "temporary" student-type "apartment" (basically a room with a kitchenette and tiny bathroom.

And finally moved into a fine 42 Sq metres apartment with balcony and skyline view. (Skyline view is a big deal here in Frankfurt, cos of all the skyscrapers, looks deadly!) Also have a view of the forest, so double whammy!


View from my window, the forest is to the right and not visible here.

Family home to 21
J├╝lich, Germany with one move there
Limerick: Ballysimon Road, then Caherdavin, then Ennis Road, then Ennis Road #2
Back to family home
My own house

8 moves

It was really only the move back to Dublin from Limerick that was stressful as I needed to get my stuff moved over a relatively long distance in a short time. Getting stuff to Limerick was relatively easy as I had the Dublin base, and the moves within Limerick were done in two or three shuttles with a taxi.

I have moved 15 times during the last 20 years.

I've only moved more than once a year a couple of times. I stayed in one bedsit in Terenure for just one night. (too smelly / cold)

Its stressful alright JK - but once you've moved you can take it easy and go at your own pace.

The no rent allowance thing with many landlords is an obstacle to moving especialy to Dublin. I think we forget our history in this country or at least the rich do. I have heard on Prime Time of people having the phone out down on them because they were from certain areas

I didn't move much as a kid, only once to go into town and once again while in town (but it was just from one house to another close by).

Ever since I've come and gone to Uni though I've lived somewhere new almost ever year.
5/6 places in Uni (one for each year's rental contract) and two places since I moved back.

All them moves take their toll, done over 12 in ten or so years, my doctor was horrified - didn't tell him why we had to move or he might have struck me off just too many parties and neighbours that liked to complain really

Edit: Been settled for the last 15 years and only one move halfway through that - all done with sessions

Helped a friend move yesterday, that was rough!

It was a girl, who's real nice but a bit clueless in this kinda thing so there were a bunch of us helping her move. I think we got it in the end, she would have been at it all night if we didn't pitch in.

We also moved everything by tram!

Anyhoo, got a few bottles of booze, some furniture and food out of it! Plus the satisfaction of helping a damsel in distress!
