all moved in...

Well, we are finally all moved into our new house and today I have unpacked the last of the boxes.  I am totally in love with my home - it's definitely home now.  This was also the first week back at school for Daisy, she started Year 1 and says that there is too much time working and not enough time playing.  But she is happy that she can play in the front playground with the bigger children.  I made it to school on time 5 out of 5 mornings which is actually pretty good going for me and I only drove back to our old house by mistake 2 out of 5 times so all in all a good week. 
We have worked very hard to get the house straight as quick as possible and I must say it is looking pretty lovely.  It is the most interesting house with cupboards everywhere and quirky shaped rooms, it has a wonderful sense of calm amid our chaos.  I haven't actually bought anymore pieces of furniture but what we took out of our small 3 bed terrace has managed to fill this big 4 bed detached with no space for anymore, how did I fit it all in?
I think I can safely say I have never felt so tired as I do this weekend, although it doesn't feel like you are working that hard at the time it has all hit me now and I feel about 85.  We are going to have a morning off from the boot sales tomorrow just to chill (I wonder if the temptation will prove too much to go when I wake up?).  
Moving house has defintely been a test on my nearest and dearest, and they have been very patient with me and the amount of stuff that I have hoarded over the years.  I even shocked myself with some of the things I found that I deemed worth keeping.  But I am a changed person and I am only going to keep things that would make me cry to get rid of them.  Thats the new rule of thumb.  I am dying to put some pictures of my new house on the blog, tomorrow I will take some more to post...
