and more packing

ah it really is a loathsome task. I shall be glad to move and stay put this time. I've got to that dreadful stage where i have done all the 'easy' packing. If you've ever moved then you know what i mean. I have tried to be organised about what i put in each box but have got to that 'sling it in and sort it at the other end' state already. I feel like packing it that way is at least getting it packed, otherwise i am just going to sit and stare (and worry) about getting it done.

I'm also looking forward to being nearer to some friends and family. Sometimes my days feel long and it will be nice to be able to just nip out for coffee and some adult interaction for a couple of hours. I love my son more than i can ever say but talking about Star Wars and Dr Who has limited mileage!!

planes and walks

It was the airshow at the RAF base down the road over the weekend. It meant the traffic was very heavy and in fact it was so busy this year that on Saturday the traffic queued for 3 hours and eventually they reached capacity and had to turn people away.
We decided to walk down into the next village and had lunch in the park, and Lemmy had a play while we were there. Then we walked back towards home but popped into the village on the other side of the main road and visited the pub. We sat and had a lovely cold drink in the beer garden. We came home the long way down the Heath Road, where lots of people had parked up and were sat on camping chairs watching the aerial display. We had timed it just right to see the flight by the Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane. My that Lancaster is BIG and makes the most beautiful sound.

We've been making a big push on the packing over the last couple of days. The garage is full of boxes so how come the house still feels full of stuff?

changes afoot

i know i rarely come on here. I use blogger on a daily basis but to read the blogs that i enjoy.
Well all change here in the next few weeks. We're in the process of buying a house and getting very close to moving. I can't wait to have my own home again, one that i can paint and put shelves up. Living in rented accomodation when you have spent all your adult life in a property you own is hard, especially when your landlord doesn't want you to make any changes to the property. I'm also looking forward to finally having a garden that is mine so that i can make a start on providing some food for us and can have the garden how i want it. The garden here is in a state to be honest but the only way to rectify it would be to rip it all out and start's not my garden so i can't and i'm not inclined to anyway lol.

So when i finally move, i will have to figure out how to put photos on this blogger so i can chart the process of us making the new house our family home......
