Wow, So That Was July!

Well July was certainly a busy month for me. After gradually moving the contents of my former home over a period of many weeks, much into temporary storage, July finally saw us moving ourselves into our present accommodation (currently more of a glorified shed).

We are now living a kind of ‘not-quite-camping’ existence in what we hope will be our ultimate destination, but there is much work to be done before achieving the finished result worthy of being called ‘home’.

I seem to be spending a huge amount of time watching the wildlife, birds, bats, butterflies etc, when I should really be working, but the novelty of the rural location has not worn off us yet.

Amidst ‘The Big Move’ we still managed a trip to Legoland, a fun evening at a barn dance marking a friend’s wedding anniversary and, more recently, have been spending time at our static caravan, soaking up the sun. Though strangely, in view of our new permanent, more rural, location, the latter seems far from being the novel experience that it once was.

As the month comes to a close, it’s lovely to take a few deep breaths and recover from the stress of this stage of ‘The Big Move’ – before embarking on the next stage some time in the autumn! Look out for my new additional blog then too (to run alongside Shopper’s Joy) chronicling all the fun and games of my new life.

How was July for you?
