Guys, did you know that moving house is FUCKING STRESSFUL? I'd kind of forgotten.

But we did it, we got here. And now I'm sitting in our new dining room, at the knackered old desk we're using as a dining table, listening to W&P 'napping' (rioting) in their new bedroom with our new tiny fireplace in it, overlooking our new (very wet) garden.

And one of my favourite 'cheer up, it might be stressful but a wee dance would help' songs just played on the radio. Nye left at 6 this morning, he gets back tomorrow night sometime. W&P are completely unhinged (turns out toddlers find moving kind of stressful too) but I think I might survive.

Thank you for all your well wishes and congratulations and new home cards (seriously, THANK YOU). You're the best.

  1. Ohhh I am so happy for you playing your song and all joyful for you. (And yes moving, transitions, are super stressful but you are in your new home).
    Yay . And moving is even stressful for animals: for instance, if you get a pet, you should not feed it for about 3 hours until the stress of the new environment settles and they are a bit calmer.

  2. So many hoorays. I love the poster, that song is such an anthem.

  3. Congratulations on making it in one piece! Have a wonderful Christmas in your new home...

  4. Congratulations and welcome and well done (how was the flight?)
