Moving!!!! hopefully

Hello gorgeous people!

Apologies for my prolonged absence. The toadstool is moving … Next week. Consequently there are boxes, piles of ‘stuff’ to be donated to various charities, suitcases overflowing with clothes everywhere, yes everywhere. Everything I own seems to be packed in boxes, except cooking utensils and clothes. Give it another week!

 

I’d love to be able to show you a piccie but for some reason my tablet won’t let me. So a long line of text it is. Because everything has been packed I can’t even crochet … Wool in box, box buried in garage, crochet hooks … Well goodness only knows!

I do know that in a weeks time I should be able to start unpacking and making our new home ‘ours’. It’s very funny living in a kind of limbo between going and staying … Somehow it feels wrong. No pictures, no books, no ornaments just furniture. Makes you think about how important possessions are. I always subscribed to the ‘ not very’ theory but after this I think I might be changing my mind. I know that I don’t like keeping things for keeping things sake, I know that I keep things that mean something to me, things that resonate with me, special things.  Things like pictures my kids have drawn for me, pictures of my loved ones, things that those that I love have bought for me. I now know that when they are gone I miss them. I am not bothered about the things I thought I might be – the clothes, the Tupperware – nope not bothered. of course if I didn’t have these things my life would be trickier but at this stage I miss the things that I am emotional about and with, not the other ‘stuff’. It has been an interesting month in so many ways.

So in just over a week I hope to bring you a Welcome to the new Toadstool post.

Until then I hope you are dry and warm wherever you are.

  1. Hope your move goes smoothly. I helped my son move last summer. I know how hectic it can be.
