We are in such a strange old place in our lives just now. In 3 weeks we are leaving our brilliant little community here in Camberwell for an adventure in our campervan, but it is at least another 7 months until we start setting up our new home in New Zealand. We are SO ready to set off on this family roadtrip, but feeling increasingly melancholy about saying goodbye to our friends and packing in life here on Wells Way.
We haven’t really got our heads around the moving business so things are sat half in boxes, piled in mountains all over our house. We don’t go anywhere or doing anything much because we are overwhelmed by the need to get cracking. So we just hang around swinging in the hammock in the garden pretending everything’s on track.
Then Tim broke his leg, and then didn’t. (He went to A and E after nailing it flying a kite and they told him it was broken and sent him home in a full cast. I spent the night awake, stressing out BIG TIME about how we would be able to get everything done. When he went into the clinic the next day they discovered it was just a bad sprain. We were like WOOHOOOO IT’S A BAD SPRAIN YESSSSSS!!!! And now he looks like quarter of a Transformer with a moon boot thing. People are like “Woah, that’s awful” and we’re like “It’s fine! IT’S NOT BROKEN! Wahey!”
A few days after, I went and got mastitis which knocked me for six (I actually thought I was dying in a feverish delirium) for a good couple of days (so very grateful for my big nursling and my little nursling and a whole jar of raw garlic which sorted me right out) all of which has left us unable to do the car boot sales we wanted to do.
So instead, we are inviting YOU, your neighbour, your neighbour’s Uncle, your neighbour’s Uncle’s hairdresser and the whole rest of the world, over to our place for a House Clearance. They’ll be lots of nice stuff – some of which you’ll recognise from all the posts I have done about the things we have decorated our house with– and also lots and lots of crap such as three quarter full tubes of oil paint and Santa Hats which will be handy for someone I am sure. Please tell any other Londoners about it. And if you come, make your self known unto me. If it is quiet we can have a cup of tea and a nice chat. Here is a Facebook event if you like that and here are the details:
