‘I Googled ”how to move house without stress” to get some tips. And they were: on moving day, lie down. Try not to cry. Cry. A lot,’ she wrote.  

Despite being the busy anchor of a breakfast TV show, Sam said her country, ‘control-freak’ leanings meant she wanted to tackle packing by herself. 

In fact, she did most of the packing herself as opposed to paying for removalists.

‘Why do I wait ’til just before the removalist arrives to disconnect the TV and box the twenty-thousand cords connected to it these days?’ she lamented.  

‘In a last-minute panic I just jam it all in a cardboard box anyway,’ she added. 

Sam admitted the move was more hectic than she would have liked.
