home sweet home

We move house next week and as of 10:30am this morning, we know where we’re moving to.

The road to this next house has been a long one…there’s been many house inspections, a ridiculous number of forms filled out and days spent waiting for phone calls…waiting, waiting. It doesn’t surprise me that this new house came up because another one fell through nor that we first inspected it at 9:30am this morning and it was ours within the hour. It ended up being easy and perhaps I was waiting for that all along.

Of course, it’s not ideal, but it’s north facing with big windows and floorboards, a leafy garden and a big bath. The bedrooms are proving to be a bit tricky – the main bedroom is huge and the second bedroom is tiny – so it looks like the kids will have full reign of the main and we’ll squeeze (with 60cm to spare) our king bed into the little space #tinybedroomliving.

Between now and then there’s work to do. But I can’t tell you how good it feels to know where we’re headed.

    Happy, calm moving xx My husband and I also have the #tinyroom while our 2 boys occupy the grand master of our little beach cottage in Copa. We bought a year ago and so far it's proving to be fine. Keep feeling liberated & positive for simple living 🙂

    Am delighted to read this post this morning. As I was waiting for it to upload I was saying 'please let them have found somewhere'to the universe. It's amazing how life provides solutions . It's that trusting bit and our desire for it to conform to our timescale that's so hard! Penny Lxxxxxx

    Congratulations! Enjoy the beautiful gardens 🙂

    So often where we live I think is so much more about the people and events we will be placed in to.
    The new neighborhood or lack of ( I live in a cemetery!) We are where we are meant to be. Sending you good wishes for your move- moving kiddos in tow is not easy.

    What wonderful news. Enjoy the move if you can. I do find moving into a new place a fun case of tetris.
    Another thought… bunk beds for the small room?
