This is a very exciting but stressful time for us all at the moment. We are moving house. Mummy has been very stressed trying to pack up the house into boxes and Daddy has been on the phone, a lot, trying to organise all the other things that comes with moving house.
Sadly, as much as we love our current home we need some more space, and thus began the search for our new family home. We have been very lucky and found somewhere that we can be moved into before Christmas 2011. The house is a 'period' house, which is very different for us, but means we can have the most awesome Christmas Tree in the window at the front and we think it will be a wonderful family home.
I hope that our new home is the venue for as many happy memories as we have had in the current one. As excited as I am about the new house, our old one holds a lot of our most precious times:
I was pregnant in with J2 in this house, and subsequently in labour
It was where we all brought J2 home for the first time and where J1 had his first cuddle
It was where Daddy proposed to Mummy
It was where we woke up on our Wedding Morning
It's where J1's first tooth came out
It's where J2 started to crawl and then took his first steps
It's where J1 started to sing songs
There are many more memories but these are some of the biggest ones and that is going to be difficult to leave behind. A happy place is always harder to leave than an unhappy one, so I suppose that is a good sign, that we have all been very happy here.
In the mean time Mummy is sorry that she has been a bit stressed and busy over the last week or so, but by the time you read this when you are all grown yourself, you will probably understand the amount of work that is needed to move home. But it will all be worth it.
So we say goodbye to our old home with much fondness and go forth to our new home with much hope.
