Life Rambles: Moving House by Numbers

Today we are moving house. We have finally, finally exchanged and completed on a property. If you’ve been around these parts at all over the last few months then you’ll be aware that we’ve had some issues, to say the least, with this move. But the end is finally here and everything was worth it in the end.

In celebration here’s our house move in numbers.

Many many evenings spent in the garden watching the birds fluttering around (the perks of living in the countryside)!

One house purchase that fell through and one even nicer house found

1 storage unit full of all our possessions (most of which we can’t remember even exist)

8 even earlier starts – 6.50am. Eurgh
