Do you ever feel that life is ticking along just fine and bang someone pulls the rug out from beneath your feet? Well this happened to us in the last few weeks.
Now I’m probably making it sound a lot more dramatic than it is but I’m usually great at coping with things and this news just floored me. You see we got the news that we are moving. It was completely out of the blue, we hadn’t an inkling that this was on the cards at all. That’s one of the joys of renting. I didn’t say anything sooner because I didn’t want to put a jinx on things and was waiting until we got the keys.
This will be move number 4 in 8 years…..and I’m really hoping it will be the last move, but you never know what’s around the corner. Speaking of around the corner that’s where we are moving to – well around the corner and up the hill!
The new house is lovely, smaller than the house we are in at the moment. We seem to have accumulated an awful lot of
crap possessions in the last couple of moves so all of that has to be sorted through and packed up.
So let the fun begin – and if that wasn’t stress enough our moving date is December 21st – no pressure! Not to mention the fact that the new house isn’t furnished – and when I say that I mean there’s nothing in it. No carpets or curtains, no beds and no cooker. Sandwiches and pot noodles for Christmas dinner, I reckon.
Luckily we have a few bits of furniture collected over the years so it’s not all bad. At the moment we are drowning in a sea of boxes though!
If you live in Coolaney and happen to see a small green car with a giant gnome hanging out of the boot, that’ll be us moving. 😀
