Well, finally I can knock one item off my 'to do' list.
Yes, after months of planning, we are living in our new home. The whole thing was exhausting and, really I suppose will continue to be so.
The move itself went smoothly but the stress associated with the organisation and the length of time it takes to unpack is really not fun. There are plenty of other things I should, and would rather be doing than searching through boxes, unpacking boxes, moving boxes and so on.
On the upside, once things are settled in properly, I shall have some real space to put my files and thoughts and finally get on with the grand plan of a Working At Home Mum (WAHM). I rather suspect that the onslaught of winter bugs and the depletion of financial means will ensure that my plans for world domination may take longer than I would like, but I am eager to get going at least.
Another advantage of the move is that since each evening there has been packing/sorting/moving heavy furniture/manic searching for things, both me and husband are feeling a bit fitter, trimmer and all round less interested in sitting on the sofa watching TV and eating snacks.
I wrote a post earlier in the year about doing more and moving house has reminded me not to fall back into bad habits. I have put a note in my diary to remind myself again at the end of the year as it seems without a kick every now and again I have the tendency to seek out the solace and comfort of the sofa.
Blogging will be back on the agenda slowly as I still have a huge list of stuff to get on with, but for now, it is just great to be logged back in.
