On The Move!

I've been tweeting a lot about my imminent house move so thought it was time for a blog post on the subject. I have a sneaking suspicion I'm going to be a bit quiet over the next few weeks - and our house move is the reason why.

Yes I am officially crackers (must be the hormones!). Himself and I have bought a derelict cottage in the Surrey Hills which is currently undergoing a LOT of work. So long as the builders finish on schedule we are due to move in when I'm 36 weeks pregnant.... I do like to put myself under a bit of pressure.

Relocating 40 miles away from Twickenham, where I have lived my entire life, is also a big step for me. It will certainly be a shock not having my friends, family and in-laws just around the corner anymore - but moving out to the country is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I am very excited about finally doing it.

So at the moment I am caught up in preparing for our new arrival as best I can, whilst picking out kitchens/bathrooms/fixtures and fittings for the new house, packing up the old house, trying to keep on top of my day-to-day chores and keeping Miss Moo entertained (which is a full time job in itself!). It's not easy, I tell you, especially when I'm looking like a barrel at nearly 31 weeks pregnant and struggling with SPD and general third trimester exhaustion!

But I know it will all be worth it in the end - our new house (and garden!) is just gorgeous and I get super excited when I think of all the nesting I can do when the time comes to unpack all our bits and pieces in it.

Here is a sneak preview.....

I'm hoping to share lots of before/after photos and interior design posts and tutorials in the next couple of months, as walls get knocked down, things get fitted, antique markets are visited and I get my craft on ---- and we turn this empty shell into a lovely home.

So please bear with me if I'm a bit on the quiet side. I'll be back soon enough! xoxox
