Our New Home

Tuesday, June 12, 2018


As you may have noticed I have been away from my blog and social media for a few weeks. We got the keys to our new house at the end of May and it has been all action ever since. I have moved out of my hometown of Coventry to a village in South Derbyshire. It is so green and the kids have been out in the garden every single day since we moved. We actually happen to have part of the National Forest at the end of our garden which we are yet to explore as we have been so busy unpacking.

Today I got the internet back. I have no idea how I coped in the days before 24/7 internet access. I am so used to checking my emails every few hours and speaking to friends through social media. Up until today we actually only had DVD's to watch whilst waiting to get Netflix and Amazon Prime Video back up and running!

There is so much work to do on the house and I am so excited to work through all of the different projects. We are currently doing up the boys bedroom as it needed so much doing to it. Then we have a few bigger projects including getting the roof fixed and having the property rewired before we start decorating elsewhere. I, of course, took photographs of every room the day we got the keys so I can do before and after posts to look back on.

It is going to take some getting used to, living in the middle of nowhere. I am desperate to get myself on the road soon so I can get out and about with the kids whilst Sam is working. I have to say I am enjoying the quietness and being able to hear the birds outside all through the day. I am also feeling much safer and secure in this house which is great for my anxiety and my ability to sleep.

I am missing all of my friends though already! I have come to realise that I am a much more sociable person than I thought and I really enjoy the company of others and speaking to people over the age of 7. I definitely need to find me some local friends before I become completely insane. 

Over the next few months I will be sharing lots of updates and posts about the new house and the surrounding area. It is the start of a brand new adventure and I hope you will all enjoy reading about it.
