from the farm. I haven’t posted for a day or 2, and there is a very good reason
for this. We were planning to drive a couple of loads of stuff we don’t really
need (books, keyboard etc) down to the farm on Thursday or Friday. However, the
weather forecast was not looking good, so on Sunday morning we made the
decision to fast forward the move to Tuesday. Thank goodness we did! Tuesday’s
weather was beautiful, but it has been raining since then (also a good thing –
we need more rain on the farm).
thing about the change of plan was that we had to cram into 2 days what was
going to be hard to achieve in 4. It was crazy busy and more than a little
stressful. We had to pack all the things we wanted to move, rearrange the
things we didn’t, and keep the kids from mixing the 2 up. Sometimes it felt
like 1 step forward, 2 steps back. Our house looked like a bomb had gone off.
There was stuff everywhere.
amongst this, we also needed to pack clothes etc to be away for a while, The
Country Boy had to go and buy materials to renovate our farm house a little,
and I needed to take Meg to the Children’s Hospital for a checkup (she had hip
dysplasia as a baby and had to wear a brace – all fine now).
we got there in the end, and are now ensconced in my lovely in laws house for a
few days whilst we do some organising, and as I write this the rain is falling
on the tin roof, the kids are playing happily and I am sitting by the fire!
