Today was our first full day in our new house. The move from North to West London went smoothly with two toddlers in tow. This time round we paid for all our belongings to be packed so Monday night was spent with minimal possessions. The children were brilliant and seemed to enjoy the chaos, hiding in boxes and dragging each other around the empty floors.
On Tuesday the removal company arrived early and quickly emptied our house of possessions. We spent most of the morning in the garden and I’m very thankful the weather was warm enough to be outside. Before too long everything was packed into two vans and I admit to having a tear in my eye as we left. I loved our old house but I’m very pleased to say we’re loving our new house!
My husband only managed to take a few days off work so we’ve concentrated on making the lounge and dining room liveable. It’s obviously where we spend a lot of the day although the weather has been so warm it’s been great to throw open the back doors into the garden. I think that open plan living will really suit us, Little Sis has spent the whole day running around the house giggling.
We popped out for a walk to our local shops which coincided with the school run. Yesterday we found out that the toddler will be attending the local nursery in September so I really wanted to see how all the mums were dressed. I have a couple of months to update my wardrobe, I think kaliko will fit in very well with my style and I’ll deserve a little shopping trip once I’ve finished unpacking all those boxes! I’m looking forward to making an effort with my clothes and of course, I can’t wait for the toddler to start enjoying school.
