After weeks of sorting, cleaning & packing….. moving day finally rolled around & the rain held off just long enough for us to get everything done. We had plenty of gale force winds though & Steve did a fabulous job of keeping the truck on the road despite Mother Nature trying her hardest to blow it off!!!
The whole thing went with a minimum of stress & we have settled very well into our temporary home (affectionately called the “mental rental”). Massive thanks to our helpers on the day. Will, Jess & Graeme ….. We could never have done it without you guys!
So how does it feel to call somewhere else home after 20+ years in the same house?! Well it’s a bit surreal to be honest. I can’t believe how lucky we are to live here, it is just beautiful and all our plans are falling into place…..
Saying goodbye to our old house was a bit sad. So many incredible memories shared with so many incredible people and a lifetime of child rearing completed as they have all left as adults. I am so grateful that my children have had the stability of this house their whole lives as this was something that was really important to me.
I am incredibly proud of the house looks as I close the door for the last time and forever grateful to everyone who helped us to achieve it. I hope the new family will be as happy as we have been.
We have a challenging year ahead ….. Paying rent & a mortgage, adjusting to a long commute to work & working whilst trying to build a house.
I know we can do it & this weekend the ball starts to really roll as we get our first look at the plans of the “forever house”. So excited!!!!! For Steve & I this really is the beginning of us & I couldn’t be happier.
