Woo. Check this. Outdoor photos!

This is my new street. Isn’t it lovely? Cobbled roads and there’s a church just behind it that sounds it bells every hour on the hour. It’s cute. Also, washing lines across the street from house to house! It’s the most adorable place I’ve ever lived.

I’m happy here.

Although the move was much effort. Due to work and Race for Life on Sunday, I didn’t get home until around 4pm as I had a birthday meal with my parents, brother and his heavily (with twins!) pregnant wife.

I packed most things in my room and in the kitchen and cleaned the kitchen. We were up early to collect the keys at 9am and then on to the house! We did a couple of car loads and then made my corner desk. Which was one of the many frustrations of the day. FINALLY managed to get it done and then ended up with only an hour spare to get back to the old house, finish up packing and start bringing things outside for the removal guy.

He came at 3pm and by 4:30pm we had all of our things in the living room of our new house! We then had to back to the house to clean and do one last tip run and car run. Then we were done.

We were done for about 7pm, then nipped to Morrisons and then started to unpack.

We didn’t get a lot done that night, we ordered a takeaway and I was in bed by 10:30! Phew!

When we moved house before, I had my room near enough finished on the day. I spent all Tuesday sorting my room out and another couple of hours on the living room and kitchen. There’s still more to do but it’s my birthday today as we’re going to be out all day.

Well done if you made it through that babble.

I love you all, goodbye.

    Congratulations on your new house! Moving is so stressful, I don’t blame you for going to bed so early! We’re moving in August and I’m already dreading it but can’t wait to start renovating the new house. I love your dress too, it’s such a cute print!

    Happy Birthday!! 🙂 Have a lovely day.

    You must be so made up to be in your new place – though it sounds stressful. It’s making me worry about my move… six weeks to go! Does the time go fast? I want to move in so badly now!
