Week 5

I know this post is so late, but goodness, its been one of those weeks.

Well, week 5!!! it sure was a big week for us.
So here's the run down. 

It started of in a fabulous way .... it was Simon's birthday and yes, that is him with his birthday present! A Lego Wall-e, and he loves it. Like any kid, its kept him quiet for ages.  We celebrated it at the little house and had a lovely day out in Faversham. 

We came home, to a couple of parcels; first was a new lead for Molly. I actually won it on an Instagram competition. Next, was a new cushion from Plum & Ashby, with the perfect name of Bertie. 

Also this week, the bears had a trip to the groomers, and I attended an embroidery class ... and had a blast. 

Now, for the most important news of the week, and one that's both got me super super excited, and terrified at the same time. 

We're moving! Yup, we've decided to sell our home and move full time to the Little House.  Also, and this is huge ... Simon is taking early retirement, although this will take pretty much most of the year to actually happen.  We had meetings with Estate Agents and our financial advisor, and this seems like the perfect time, for a fresh start.  So over the next few months, we'll be busy, getting our home ready to put on the market.  Apparently May is a good month, so we're aiming for that. We also need to put some work into the little house as although its lovely, its been a holiday home, and we need to do some renovations to make it our main home.   Of course, I'll be sharing this journey with you all. 

So there you have it! As you see, week 5 certainly was an eventful week.
