My life, at the moment, is going through lots of changes.  I quit my job at almost the same time as my fiancé got offered a fabulous new job… on the other side of the country.  I now have to work out how to sell our house, find a new one in a city I’ve only been to a couple of times, tell everyone that we’re moving when we’d promised to stay put for good (we have a history of moving cities quite a bit!) and figure out how to build my new self-employed career – all at the same time…

I know that the coming months are going to be quite overwhelming, and that I’m likely to loose focus on why we’re moving, why I quit my job, and that it’s not, actually, the end of the world when someone doesn’t turn up to a house viewing (grrrrrr).  I want to make sure that the ‘moving’ bit of moving house is a positive part of the experience and that I don’t spend the next few months in a suspended state of “Life will be so different when we move, but until then I’ll just spend all my time waiting“.

I want to ground myself and use this blog to help me start this new phase of my life now, and not wait until another year has rolled by and we’ve slipped sleepily into our new home.  I’ve wanted for a while to create a space where I could keep a record of the simple little bits of life that make me happy, and now here we are…
