I haven’t done a post like this in a while. We have had so much going on. Life is really good. It’s treating us well. Things have changed but actually I’m embracing them and loving our days so much. Some days are harder than others but that’s completely okay as we are not living in normal times. Our world has gone through so much change recently and rightly so it affects us all so differently.
We have some really big news and that is that we are moving house. Not just up the road we are moving four hours away from where we live now in Kent to beautiful Wales. Which we couldn’t be more excited about.
It’s something we been discussing for about two years now and at one point was something we were very serious about but things changed and you know what life is like sometimes you don’t always follow your dreams straight away. Everything takes time especially big changes. It takes times to get all your ducks in a row and make sure it’s the right time. But is there ever a right time? I just think we were not ready to let go of where we are now. But right now, we are so ready and so excited we cannot wait for our new adventure as a family.
We’ve made our decision and put the plans in place and we move in just over two weeks. We have done quite well and mostly packed up the whole house now. Bar the kitchen as we still need everything in there everyday. I don’t think we’ll pack that up until the day before we go.
This move has brought such a burst of new inspiration its opened up so many new and wonderful possibilities for us as a family and genuinely I wish we had made the decision a long time ago. But I also believe everything happens at the right time.
If anything positive has come out of lockdown it’s this for us as we will have such a wonderful life in Wales. It’s a completely different lifestyle it’s a slower pace which Dan and I both crave so much. And it’s a beautiful place to bring up our children.
It’s all happened so quickly and slotted so well into place for us it just feels like it was meant to be. I can honestly say not once have I felt extremely stressed over moving. I might soon but as of now everything has been relatively stress free.
I’m looking forward to sharing our journey with you and my feelings up rooting our family and moving far away, moving can be daunting but it can also be done well with the right mindset.
I’ve had so many messages over on Instagram from people who made the move years back and have said they have never looked back. To me this is the dream and what I hope for us. So many of you have sent us congratulations and it really means so much to have your support and love in our life. Thank you. It feels like home in wales. I’ve said that in all my old posts when we have visited, there is something beautiful and calming about Wales and it feels like exactly where we should be as a family.
The children are so excited they have seen their new school, it’s a lot smaller than where they are now but I am sure they will settle well. The headteacher is so lovely. It is a little village school in such a peaceful location. I’m excited for them. I look forward to spending this summer in our new home in a new area. Our front garden is so beautiful and full of flowers and plants I can’t wait to get gardening this summer.
When we first viewed our new home, all I could hear were sheep and it feels silly to say but it made me so happy. That sound I just felt like we were away from the city away from the busyness and I can’t wait to take a walk around our house, as we have beautiful woodland area and hills all around us and a short walk from our house.
So much to look forward to. I am so excited for our new adventure as a family. I can’t wait to show my children a new way of life, I can’t wait to just enjoy this new change and new chapter together.
