Happy Friday ! It seemed to take a little while to get here this week and I am still deciding if that is a good or bad thing - Life is going so quickly but the week at work seems to take forever. I have today drawn a winner for the fabric scraps and it is Scottish Nanna - Send me your postal details Mary and I will send them up to you.
Every now and again we have reason to reassess our lives and we have done a similar thing with the happenings of the past year or so. We have decided that the time has come to part with our beloved property and house.
It is a place that holds many special memories for us but as we get older and more time poor, it is taking much of our time to maintain it. We only have 1 & 1/4 children home now and a huge house is just too much. It will be very sad to say goodbye to it if we can find a buyer but for our future it just has to happen.
You soon decide what is more important in life and it is truly not possessions - They can be replaced. Time unfortunately cannot.
So I have had to bring out my book of lists again with a number of chores, jobs and de-cluttering to happen here in the coming weeks. We have given ourselves 6 weeks to do it all before the For Sale sign goes up.
Then we can begin the new chapter of our lives that we have been planning for many months. And this will involve some travel :)
I am not looking forward to the period of being "For Sale" but I just hope that it doesn't take too long.
But I am very much looking forward to the journey of finding a "new" "smaller" "forever" home and opening up the new doors of our future.
So this weekend I have a spare bedroom makeover planned. I will bring the camera along and share with you the adventures of the weekend sometime next week.
