I recently wrote a blog post called ‘Countdown To Moving‘ letting you all know that we have decided to move back to our hometown. If you haven’t already read through it, you can check it out here!
We had finally received some good news today. The place we’re moving into is nearly complete and we have a rough date of when we shall be moving in! I haven’t felt this excited in ages.
We still having a million and one things to organise before, and when we get there but it will certainly be worth it to get back to our hometown, and be able to go out for date nights again once a month like we used to (living close to family again has its perks).
We are currently trying to get the children into a school in Wales. We received the forms in the post, and even though we contacted the school recently, we have to go through a protocol filling in forms then having to wait to hear back from them whether the kids have been accepted or not (fingers crossed they will be).
The only frustrating thing about moving schools is buying a whole new uniform. I’ve been informed that the jumpers are around £16 each and as i’m going to require 2 of them for each child, it’s certainly not going to be cheap. It does come in handy that the rest of the uniform can be bought at most supermarkets and are fairly affordable.
We haven’t done much preparation or packing yet, but we ought to start soon – I want to smooth out and de-stress the move as much as possible. I packed at least two boxes yesterday full of children’s books and toys (OK OK I was trying to save myself some housework – less tidying up for me – a Mums dream).
Faith is such a messy child especially when it comes to her room, so with many of her toys and books being packed away its less mess for her to make for me to have to tidy.
With only three weeks until we up and leave, i’m currently looking around the house wondering what to pack away next. To be honest I’ve not got the foggiest.
There is a lot to think about when it comes to moving especially with 4 kids in toe. I’ve only ever moved with 3 and that was hectic enough as it was!
We are attempting to move in one trip but that means plenty of work to be done in such a short amount of time, including cleaning the house throughout and loading the van while looking after the little blessings I call my children.
Then there’s the travelling, unloading and putting away. The thought of it alone is exhausting but at least when it’s all done we can finally relax and start enjoying the perks of being back.
The beach awaits, and we have plenty else to enjoy going back to the place that will always be our home.
We will keep you updated on the hectic days ahead!
