I'm Moving

I have sold my house and bought another in Launceston - with much less garden to look after. Five acres down to a suburban block! It will be very different living in town, but I'm looking forward to a new phase of my life. It has been hard deciding to sell the house and studio that Bob and I built and one I agonized over, but now I'm excited about new possibilities.

I may be a little unconnected for a while - I'm staying with my mother after leaving here on Monday 21st December and I will be there until early February when I move into my new house. The new place is in an NBN ready area,  but the house is not connected yet - I may have to wait a while. 

Needless to say, I've been putting in very long days: sorting, cleaning, culling, throwing out and passing on. It's been very cathartic, but I'll be glad when that removal van finally rumbles out of here to put my things in storage and I can rest for a while.

Thanks to all my supporters and readers of this blog - may I wish you Season's Greetings wherever you are and all the very best in 2016. I'll post again as soon as I am able.

Good luck for the final moving days Susie. Have a good rest while you stay with your mother. Looking forward to seeing your new home once you have made it your own. Thank you for being a creative inspiration to me, for teaching me lots through your patterns and tutorials, and thank you for letting us have glimpses of your personal life this year. We all have to walk our own journey, but some days it is reassuring to me to know that there are others on a parallel path.
Merry Christmas!

Glad things are progressing for you! One of the hardest things for me in all moves is the Unknown factor. "Where will we live? Will we sell the house when we need to? What price will we get?" Once all that part is known, the the rest is just work. :) Good luck in your place, and may you enjoy nesting into it and learning its quirks.

Wishing you the best Susie! Moving is always an upheaval of one's life but as you said it also presents wonderful new opportunities. Good luck and have a wonderful Christmas season!
