The Parents

Right, this is it…… We move house tomorrow!!!

I think it’s safe to say that last minute nerves have kicked in, tomorrow we leave our cosy life in Leyland for a new life back in Telford.

I’ve tried to be organised as I prepare for this move but part of me still isn’t too sure.

What if Leah and Lewis don’t like the new house? What if Lewis doesn’t make any friends at his new school? What if Lewis doesn’t LIKE his new school??

The main one that’s bothering me…..

What if I slip back into depression again? This one is really scaring me, since being back in Leyland I’ve felt settled for the first time in years, and i’ve managed to keep tracks of life and the house. I really fear i’ll feel unmotivated again and slip back into depression as a result.

I’m going to try and remain motivated, blogging, housework, Lewis schooling and entertaining Leah throughout the day should keep me going….. I hope!

Also, living in the area of Telford we will be is quite high up, in winter it gets ALOT of snow. I’m dreading the snow and taking Lewis to and from school.

Yes I know a stupid thing to worry about!


Whilst the move is taking place I have scheduled a couple of posts for you all to read and I look forward to my return to blogging, which should be Wednesday PM at the latest.

    It’s scary stuff, but I think you’re making the right move. Plus, if you hate it that much, you can always camp out on our sofa every weekend! 😉 xx

    Oh it’s a horrible feeling when you’re not sure how things are going to pan out. I really hope that the move is a big success for you and I look forward to reading more blog posts about how it’s all going. I find myself worrying about the slightly irrational things like how to get them to school in the snow but we can’t help what we worry about. Good luck and I hope you’ll be coming up north lots to blogging events and would love to meet you! xx

    I´m moving country next month and I think it´s just normal to be worrying. Don´t let these moments take over and try to focus on the positives. ( Easier said than done, I know ), but all the best!

    I think you’re going to love it. It’s a whole new house, new stuff and new adventures. I love changes, you really don’t know what will come along next.
    I’ve never stopped moving house in all my 35 years and I always love it.
    Plus if you get bored/annoyed/miserable you’ve still got your ridiculous social media friends at the other end of the internet line thingy phone bandbroad doodah.

    It’s a new adventure Bex. Think of all the friends and family you have there. Lewis will love school, he’s so ready for it. We’re going to miss you though, gutted we didn’t get to see you again before the big move but, hopefully, it won’t be too long before we see you at another event xxx

    It’s a new chapter in your life, and it’s always going to be daunting, but exciting at the same time. Good luck with it, and keep us updated! x
