Moving house update

(Our dining room and sitting…)

We have been in our new home for three and a half months now and what a rollercoaster it has been! I knew it was going to be hard but I don’t think I was prepared for how hard it has actually been; renovating a house while living in it with two little ones is not too fun… at all!

But it’s been character building (!) and probably very good for me – I’m being taught to let go of things; to stop having to be in control all the time. But I’m still battling with that!

We’re getting there though. We’ve accomplished a lot in the last few months and now  things are really starting to take shape. Most electrical, plumbing and building work has been completed, our new bathroom is about to be put in and Eoin will be fitting our new kitchen at the beginning of August which is really very exciting.

What’s also very exciting is that we found out a week after we moved into our new house that we were expecting baby number 3! Another girl due on 6th December, so we still have time to get things ready!

Moving home

We’re finally moving house this Wednesday! It’s been a long time coming but we’re nearly there. We’re moving just a five minute drive away to a house… with a garden! The new house will be a labour of love – it needs A LOT of TLC, but I’m excited to start this new adventure with our little family.

I’ll be sad to leave our flat; it will always be our first proper family home together. I remember the first day we moved in and placing a 4-month old sleeping Benedict on the lovely new empty carpet in our bedroom. Now, three and a half years later he is as full of life as ever (while writing this he’s pretending to be a bee and buzzing around the room… now he’s being a tree…)

And Rose! The most precious memory I have is bringing Rose home from hospital on the night she was born and having her sleep beside us in her cot – so beautiful and so so tiny.
