Well, friends, to quote my favourite musical* – ‘the time is now, the day is here’.
Yes, after a very long year of sorting, clearing, paperwork and inching my way through the whole process of probate, I am finally moving. The contracts have been exchanged, completion is set, and I will be in a new house on Wednesday evening.
I am both excited and scared. Having always lived in this house, the whole experience of moving is completely new to me, and obviously I’m leaving the home I’ve lived in all my life – the home Mum made for us. But I’m looking forward to having a space that will be, wholly and completely, mine. It’ll be beyond strange for a while, but hopefully before too long I’ll have settled in.
I am, of course, taking some crochet in a ‘box of stuff I need right away’! I have my priorities straight. I have a box of cat supplies, a box of kitchen/bathroom supplies, a suitcase of clothes and crochet, and an afternoon set entirely aside to get the new chicken coop and run assembled (as some of you may remember, I have waged war against my neighbourhood foxes over the last few years and I’m not willing to give the new ones even an inch of leeway).
Everything else can basically sit in boxes until I have the energy to unpack them!
All of which means that you probably won’t see much of me for the next few weeks. The internet should be set up the day after I move, but my poor ME-ridden body is going to be absolutely knackered for quite some time, and I’m not sure my brain is going to be much better. I will be back when I can 😀 I have a stashbust granny square blanket to show off, and I’m crocheting a solid Campfire Cardigan as well, which shouldn’t take too long even with the move, so hopefully I’ll be back to share those with you in a few weeks.
Meanwhile, keep your fingers crossed that my move goes as smoothly as possible (it should!) and I’ll see you on the other side 🙂
