We’ve made it. We’ve finally moved and I’m almost in a place where I feel I can start blogging again. It’s been a crazy time. No wonder they say moving is one of the most stressful things you can do – it certainly is and the aftermath has left us all frazzled. Especially as there’s still work to get through, the business thankfully keeps going despite the huge mess at the house or children running riot. But. And it’s a big but, the place we’re in is totally worth it. We love it here and I can feel it all settling down and becoming home.
So, what better way to jump back into blogging than joining in with #littleloves
Hardly anything. I’ve dipped into blogs and commented sporadically but the book that I’ve been turning to for a little escapism has been this old classic by Elizabeth Taylor. (No, not that Elizabeth Taylor) Her writing is very comforting somehow, it must be her excellent description of flawed characters but it was easy for me to dip in and out of with so much going on this month.
We’ve only just got the television and satellite channels set up, so for a large part of this month we had to make do with normal tv. I know! Almost back to just four channels! But we did catch a great programme that I would’ve missed normally. It was I thought we were doing something hard with moving the house and business but believe me, it was nothing compared to what the people on this show are up to.
It’s been barmy weather hasn’t it? One thing we’ve had to get used to living in the Lakes is how quickly the weather can change. One minute the sun is breaking through and the next it’s torrential downpour! When we first moved here someone said to us, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.” Well I have been wearing the wrong clothes!
Jessie Ware and more Jessie Ware. I needed something quite beautiful to unpack to and even my little girl likes to spin around to her. She’s also one of the only artists that I can listen to for hours at the moment without getting bored.
Lots and lots of new discoveries. A new start. There’s so much to explore here, right on our doorstep, sometimes the pressure to go out even though we’re all exhausted and the weather is terrible is immense!
I’ve been trying to keep up with the gratitude. It’s been a stressful time, especially with so much to do and the children being off, but I’m so very, very lucky. I’m starting a gratitude journal again, listing five things every day to be thankful for.
Have a wonderful weekend all!
