This is me

Hello Friends.

You might have been thinking that I have given up on blogging but that is not the case! I have just found it hard to write a coherent blog post with a thousand thoughts about Josh's end of year work and moving house swirling around my brain for the last month.

We've also had problems with our computer so it's been in the repair shop for the last week. We currently have a new hard-drive but nothing from our old computer; no office programs, photo editing programs and NO FILES...I have lost all my photos and design work from the last few months and I'm trying NOT TO PANIC about it. (okay, I'm panicking).

We've got nine days before we move and I'm trying so hard not to feel stressed. I know that we're going to the right place and I'm on schedule with my house organisation ready for packing but I can't help feeling a little overwhelmed. Big life changes always make me feel weird and unsettled so I'm expecting for these feelings to continue but unexpected problems like our computer and out-of-the-blue bills are tipping me over into anxiety.

We visited our new home last week to oversee the new carpets being fitted and it just felt bizarre that we'll be living there full time in just over a week. New home, new job, new friends, new routine; our life is going to change completely and it's difficult to get my head around it.

I just need to get through each day as it comes and it'll all be fine but I do feel a little sad to be leaving Cardiff. We have found living in the city hard in many ways but it's still home, we have a routine and friends and it's scary to leave all that.

While we waited for carpets to be fitted on Friday we explored a little estuary beach not far from our new home. Even though it will be difficult to move I am so excited for times like these. Being outside as a family is such a joy for us but we haven't done nearly enough of it while living in the city. Although it will be sad to be so far away from family and friends, exploring new beaches and countryside will hopefully make up for it a bit.

So this is me. My mind is swirling with a million lists and worries and plans and I'm taking life one day at a time.


  1. Sounds like you are going through an exciting time! It would make me really anxious too, moving away to a new city where you don't know anyone and to a new job. I wish you all the best and hope it goes smoothly! x

  2. You are going to love it! Estuaries and beaches abound - all within easy reach. You should also find life a bit less hectic than Cardiff, Hope the move goes smoothly for you.
