Moving, many hands make lighter work

moving house
When I was growing up I only moved once when I was 5, the rest of my life we spent in one house and it was very stable. I went to one primary school and one high school. The first time I moved after that was when I went to university in Jhb. Since then I have moved a ridiculous number of times. Now when we move at the end of the month it will have been the 17th move in 16 years, not very stable at all. At least 4 of those moves were overseas so not just a small trip around the corner.

The kids have each moved quite a few times in their lives. I am really looking forward to making the house my own and putting down roots. I am delighted that after years of renting I can finally paint Rachel’s room for her. She has wanted her own space for such a long time now. I am not sure how Caleb will take being on his own but it will be nice to make transport bedroom for him with tractors and all

Moving really has to be one of the most stressful things ever. This will be the 3rd time I have moved pregnant! But this time I am promised that all the hard work will be done for me. The best part will be having space for stuff so we don’t have to fall over each other and stuff like we d at the moment. We don’t have fancy furniture, or stuff, but we will have a place that we can start making our own and buying stuff for. Now I just want the time until end of October to fly.
