I'm going to be taking a short break from blogging as we're moving house this week.
It's been on the cards for quite some time. The house went up for sale over three years ago but we took it off the market again when my mum died. Then we put it back up for sale and had to take it down again when my dad died. Then we got another sale and the housing market slowed down because of the pandemic and we just couldn't find a house we wanted to move to. Finally, something came on the market which we were interested in and we put in an offer in November but there was a problem at the top of the chain which has taken all this time to sort out. We've been living in a kind of limbo not wanting to do much to the house we're in now or spend money on it because we knew we'd be selling it at some point.
We've lived in our present home for over twenty eight years, we've spent most of our married life here, so it's going to be a big change for us. I'm happy to be moving but I'll be taking some happy memories with me, times we've spent in the house with loved ones who are no longer with us, and of course, bringing our new born babies home from the hospital to this house, and the memories of them growing up here.
The last few weeks have been a frenzy of packing boxes and all the admin associated with a house move, but we've still got lots to do and I know I'm going to be very busy when we get to the new house.
I'll be back when we get settled in.
Best wishes for the move.ReplyDelete
I hope your house move goes well. Moving home will be quite an upheaval and then getting settled into your new home. You will take all your good memories with you to your new home xReplyDelete
Good Luck with the move - hope you are soon settled into your new homeReplyDelete
Good luck with the move Jo, it's going to be a big upheaval but hopefully you'll soon be settled in to the new one. If you are downsizing, it must be difficult to get rid of the things you've had for so long plus your parents' things but maybe you are going bigger so that you can get even more things in! See you on the other side.ReplyDelete

How exciting, we have lived here since 1965, a long time. I would have loved to move but I think I shall be here until the end now, lolReplyDelete

An exciting new chapter for you, although I imagine it will be a wrench to leave your current home.ReplyDelete

Wow, what a big change for you. I hope it all goes smoothly for you and looking forward to hearing all about the move and your new house.ReplyDelete
I tried to leave a comment last night, but it wouldn't take one, so I rang instead, but this one should be ok now. Have a safe move & we'll talk soon. Take care & hugs.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the move Jo, I hope everything goes smoothly for you and I wish you well in your new home :)ReplyDelete
Best wishes for an easy move. We moved last summer after 23 years in one house and well, let's say, it got a little tense around the house.ReplyDelete
Good luck with your move and happy settling into your new home.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
How exciting - congratulations! I don't envy you when it comes to the actual moving bit. The few times we've moved, it always seemed that the packing up/unpacking took so much longer than we anticipated. It is a great opportunity to declutter and start fresh - can't wait to read all about it once you you settle in.ReplyDelete
I hope the move to a new house goes smoothly. There'll be a lot to do I know so understand that you'll need to take a break from blogging. I look forward to your return when you've settled.ReplyDelete
Oh wow.Sending lot of good luck to you in your New Home hope the move goes smoothly.We also spent about the same amount of years in our last house.As you say lots of memories good and not so good.xxReplyDelete
Congrats on getting the house you want and best of luck with all that needs to be done. Moving is no easy task. Try not to over due. We'll leave the light on for you and look forward to your return.ReplyDelete
Just stopping by to wish you happiness in your new home, Jo. Looking forward to seeing pictures when you return to blogging. P. xReplyDelete
Just waving hello as I make my blog rounds. Hope the move is going well for you.ReplyDelete
