Its taken me almost two weeks to feel motivated to write a blog post.
I have even considered letting my blog go.
Why? because as soon as I start worrying about stats, number of comments and number of followers, or comparing my blog to the success of others, then I wonder if its worth it.
I did after all start this blog to record my crafting, and we all know there hasn't been a lot of that lately!
So instead I'm going to try to refocus on why I am doing this and try to structure my blogging a bit more. I love how my dear friend Paisley Jade, has a plan to her blogging, each week I know what she will post and when and I look forward to it! What will she create this week? what recipe will she post? what will she be loving?
So Im going to be more structured and see if that inspires me to keep on blogging. I have a few ideas to work on.
But for now, I guess you want to know about our move??
Well, as an expert mover (yes, three international moves in four years, 10 moves since we had children, a total of 27 moves in my life!!! eek! only someone who moves constantly would even add those up!) this move was just as hard as the rest.
Its not just the packing, its the cleaning, dealing with three children's emotions, saying goodbye to precious family and special friends. Yes, we've done it all before and no, it doesn't ever make it easier, just means you know what to expect.
Its the near meltdown at the airport when you are told your luggage is over weight and the way the check-in person looks down their nose at you when you suggest weighing your youngest child to see if the excess luggage can make up for the little weight she is taking up on the plane ...after all we do pay for her the same as her sister who weighs a lot more.
But we make it through those two challenges, say our sad goodbyes to Nana and Poppa and off we go.
Our kids are great little travellers. They have had quite a few plane rides in their short lives, nothing too long, but usually with me alone.
They pretty much know the drill about putting their stuff through security, asking for help to stow their hand luggage, choosing their movies, using the airplane toilets.... bickering at the gate in front of everyone ...*ahem*.
But more of that for tomorrow's loving post and some photos because I have been sooo slack at taking photos.
Right now we are off for a swim, its 28C and the kids have been begging me all week.
