On The Move...

Well my lovely exciting news is that we're moving at the end of the month. I couldn't say anything because we where just waiting for the paperwork to go through, sadly we're not buying it, just renting. But hey who wants to be buying at this moment in time! Maybe in a couple of years when hopefully every things calmed down and the credit crunch is far behind us all. The Cupcakes household will have a place they can truly call theirs.
For now we're all just so happy to be moving away from the street we're in. The girls are very excited and keep asking when are we going to the new house Mummy/Daddy?



I'll share more with you closer to the time we go but for now it's all sorting, recycling, charity shop dropping, wrapping and packing. Not forgetting the few orders I have to complete before we move. Argh! if anyone can post me a few more hours in the day lol I'd be so grateful hehe!

Thankfully we're getting in the professionals to do the move, this has put a big smile on Ben's face as i don't think he could face doing it by ourselves again, and he's saved money by packing everything (meaning little old me doing most of it, no really i wouldn't have it any other way lol). And this way i can over see all the boxes going into the new place and know where everything is, i.e most important kettle, tea, biscuits.
And plenty of these yummy things, well we're need to keep our sugar levels up lol
I'm also happy that someone else will be doing all the heavy lifting for us, as the last 2 times we moved i was very pregnant. Which = fat ankles and sore ribs for little old me, boo hoo! not this time I'm a sprightly thing that can run around and sort, pack and lift the odd thing about. Although i do wish we had a magic fairy that could pack everything too. Anyone got one of those going spare? lol

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, we spent Saturday with my fabulous Granny who's soon to be 88 (two fat ladies hehe!). We took her off to Ikea, on the way she shared with us stories of her younger days and some of her first boyfriend's. How amazing she is and had us in fits of giggles with her naughty tales.

Love you Granny, you mean the world to me x

Back with Music any day in the week and whatever i feel like rambling on about lol please come back soon.

Many hugs,

Catherine x

Good luck with the move and think of all the fun you'll have dressing all your new rooms....the last time we rented we had to ask permission to change the colour of the paint on the walls!

I wish we didn't own our house the mortgage is killing us!

Take care and best of luck

It's two months since we moved and I still haven't got the house straight. It takes forever! Hope all goes well with the move - it's such a lot of hard work. x

Good luck with the house move. My last one when I moved in with Simon was very stressful because we had to do it so quickly due to new tennant wanting to move in quick. Definitely worth getting someone else to do it I reckon. Happy Birthday to Granny too. Hope she had a lovely day.

That's great news...I guessed correctly!! I know how pleased you must be. How exciting. Wish I had a fairy to send your way to help with all that packing! You poor thing, as we know all these things get left to mummy's and wive's!!
Happy Birthday to Grannie. How lucky you are to have your precious grannie to share all her marvellous stories with you. And still going VERY strong by the sound of it if she could cope with Ikea!!
Take care.

Hi Catherine, me again. Thank you for your lovely long comment on my blog and yes, it is me! I had to delete my old blogs due to nosey ex boyfriend. It's probably going to take a while for people to find me again. Yes, I am getting married! Very exciting and lots to organise. It's at the beginning of March next year and time seems to be flying towards it. It's been a while wind last year for me in which I've been from being very low to finding the most wonderful man and being happier than I could ever have imagined. Anyway, glad you have found my new blog. Hugs Fiona
