Word of the Week: Transition

Last Updated on


My word of the week could be boxes again, as it was last week! I’ve lost count of the carloads I’ve transferred from one house to the other :)

But, this week has been more about change, movement; transition.

We’re very lucky to have this time of transition; that we were able to buy before selling. It has given us time to take the move slowly.

But, last night, we moved in to the new house!

We’re camping; all our furniture is still in the old house as viewings start today!

It’s fun though, we’re muddling along… I packed a kitchen box, and haven’t needed anything from the other house, yet. We all had a mattress to sleep on last night, albeit the kids are all on travel mats. A friend very kindly lent us a couple of camp chairs, so we have something to sit on!

I will be glad when my word can be ‘moved’ though; past tense, all done, completed!

How has your week been?

  1. So lovely to hear that you’re in your new house and the process of moving in has begun! Good luck with getting everything in and transforming it into a lovely home – will look forward to when your word of the week can be “moved” too! :-)

  2. Such an exciting time moving house (and of course very stressful!!) that camp out style that always goes along with moving is always so exciting, I always have good memories of that! Xx

  3. I remember having to use deck chairs when we moved. I hope you get a quick sale so you can get your furniture soon. Enjoy the adventure of camping indoors in the meantime! Emma

  4. Sounds like an exciting week to me. I love your attitude to it all as so many people would be stressing lots about not having furniture. I do hope you are settled soon though x

    1. Thank you, that’s a really lovely comment. We have enough to be getting by, but I will be glad to move in properly :)

  5. Busy and emotional week for us as my son attended his last day in his preschool. Camping in a house sounds fun! Would love to do that one day! Congrats again with the tots score! You deserve it more than anyone =) #wotw

  6. It must be exhausting but fun moving into a new home! We’re in a temporary cottage while we look for a place so had to do an ikea shop last weekend for essentials as everything is still in storage.

    1. Oh, we’ve been there – our US kitchen is full of IKEA essentials :) Our container I snow in New York, so I’m looking forward to having all my kitchen stuff back!
