Well it’s been forever since I last blogged here. I’ve had real writers block caused in the main by the fact that we had lots going on but I couldn’t make it public yet. My blog is no longer a place where I can write anonymously – real life friends and family read here and I would hate for them to discover something here that I hadn’t told them in real life.
So what’s been happening? Well 1st things 1st, 2013 was a terrible year for us personally. We suffered miscarriage after miscarriage and by the end of the year I was focused on coming to terms with the fact that a second child may not be a reality for us. I think I’m close to accepting that now. We aren’t giving up, and will likely have a couple more tries this year, but it’s important for my sanity that I don’t put too much pressure on this. If one child is what we are meant to have, we are blessed to have her already.
But the bigger news is something else entirely. Husband has been working away from home more and more over the last year and finally we have decided enough is enough. We have decided to move across the country to be closer to his work so he doesn’t need to stay away so much. We will be moving from Devon to Derbyshire and couldn’t be more excited! It’s a big move but the right time for us as we should be settled before we need to apply for a school place for L for Sep 2015.
We made the final decision over Christmas, then put our house on the market a couple of weeks ago. And yesterday we accepted an offer on it. Our buyers would like to move in April so that gives us just a few months left here. We spent the weekend in Derbyshire looking at houses, and yesterday had our offer accepted on a lovely house near a good school.
Everything is happening very quickly now, I just hope it all goes smoothly!
Only problem is now I need to think of a new blog name! Hmm any ideas?
