So, the big change that was going on behind the scenes here during the summer was that we decided it was time to move on - from our house. It wasn't a move that I had anticipated when we bought the place, so it took quite a while to get my head round it, but never the less it was time for something new. Buying and selling property in the UK can be a ridiculously slow process, and this move has been no different. The sale of our house went on for about three months and then - bang - we had four days to pack up the house and get out (not so easy with a toddler I tell you). We've found a new house that we're buying, but of course nothing here is straight forward and so I doubt we'll be moved in until early next year. In the meantime we're staying at my father-in-law's which is great. Seeing our house without our stuff in it made me realise that it's not a house that makes a home, it's the people and what they put in there that does. I'm very excited by the prospect of being able to decorate and trying new things out again. We spent seven years and eight months in our "old" place and in the end it was just the right amount time. So long old house and keep well!
