I’ve been back from Scotland for 2 weeks now and it’s easier to settle in knowing my dad is in his new flat and safer, I am a little calmer about the whole thing. I have had a busy 2 weeks catching up with work and we’re on a major mission to downsize. We have realised we own too much and don’t want to be weighed down by all this stuff. My husband is blogging about it all – if you want to know more.
We are currently looking for a 1 bed flat in Manchester and currently live in a 3 story 4 bed 4 bath townhouse so you can imagine we have alot to get rid of. We are still moving to Amsterdam but we want to sell the car & furniture before we go so thought moving to the city would be best in the mean time, so we are able to walk to our amenities and get a nice furnished place.
We also found a lovely farm shop with a coffee barn near to where we live and have popped out these a few times for a coffee and a read of the papers. It is relaxing and in a beautiful countryside setting. I have a feeling we will become regulars there.
My husband also has the new Grand Theft Auto game for the XBOX so I have been a gaming widow these past few days and I have caught up reading all my favourite blogs and even managed to schedule a few posts, which for me is unheard of. Now that its become a little colder I have been enjoying my favourite Autumn drink – Apple and Cinnamon Tea, I can’t get enough.
My niece who is 5 started school last month, she lives in Scotland and that’s 300 miles from me and I don’t see her as often as I’d like and so I thought it would be fun to write to each other, so we are now pen friends. I have sent her some cute stationery and stickers and I have bought some too (who am I kidding I had loads in the cupboard). I love writing snail mail and I am excited to receive my first letter from her – she is the cutest little girl.
