The Weekend Back Home

We’re slowly getting settled in, but with boxes still everywhere and the older kids returning tomorrow, much more is needing to be done. Read more about our after-move here!

It was Easter over the Weekend, not that we’ve had much time to celebrate it this year.

We had finally arrived back in Wales last week and have spent the weekend trying to get everything organised – moving all the heavy objects where we want them to go.

I had a moment of madness and thought i’d take a heavy desk up the stairs with my Mum. It had been raining so the desk was wet and I got stuck half way up the stairs and nearly dropped the desk on my Mum.

The funny noises I was howling while trying to heave this desk up the stairs, had the rest of the household in hysterics. Well at least I made them laugh, even if it was at my own expense.

We finally got it up the stairs after much profanity. I decided perhaps the heavy lifting should be left to ‘the men’ next time before I cause an injury to myself or to someone else.

We are progressing slowly sorting our place out. There is so much needing to be done and there just doesn’t seem like there is enough time in the day to do it all.

The eldest children are back from their Dads tomorrow so we had to go and get some food in before they arrive. We don’t get our cooker delivered until Friday, so we’re having to live off microwave meals until then.

Over the weekend we had two grumpy children to contend with. I don’t think Kiiara was too well and she just wouldn’t settle. Liam’s sister Lisa came over to assist with the kids while I helped Liam figure out where we we’re going to put things, and to get the children’s bedrooms sorted before they arrive.

One of the problems living on the top floor is the stairs. It’s a pain trying to get the two prams up and down the stairs especially with shopping bags. The school run is going to be a lot of fun too (not looking forward to it at all!).

I must admit it was strange the first time we walked around our home town again. We thought it wouldn’t have changed too much in the last 6 months, but to our surprise new shops have been opened.

People who we used to say “Hi” to thought that we were visiting. It felt a little strange to be back but also feels good. It’s an unusual feeling that seems hard to explain (as if we’re both here, and we’re not. Like we’re home, but something doesn’t feel too homely about it anymore… anyone else ever felt like that?).

When Aurora first saw the new place, she was a little uncertain whether she could leave a room she was in, but soon realised its much more fun running around the place enjoying her freedom – It’s lovely to see. I’m intrigued to see what the other two think when they return.

It will be nice to make this place a home – just might take a little while for us.

We’re waiting for the weather to become slightly warmer now, and then the fun can begin!

I have also yet to get the children registered at the doctors which I’m hoping to do tomorrow. Kiiara is far overdue for her injections, due to the medical centre she was registered in in Liverpool. I’m hoping they can get them done as soon as possible because I fear she may become poorly without them.

We would like to say thank you to all the people that have made our lives that little bit easier with the move. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without you! You know who you are!

Hopefully we can get the things that need to be done as soon as possible then we can start enjoying the great outdoors and be able to share our journey with you all along the way!
