We are living internet free at the moment. It means that all we think about is food for some reason, what else can we do? I have popped back to our old house to do some cleaning and take full advantage of the internet connection we have in the house we no longer live in!

I took all of my cook books, then needed one to make beetroot chutney.
I carefully packed up all of my best dinner service and put it in the dresser with only one wine glass breakage.
I have taken all of my wool, patterns and knitting regalia and just kept my basket with a sweater and socks to work on in the evenings.
I have kept my sewing machine and some basics with me in case I need to do some school uniform alterations before school starts again but I have packed up all of my fab fabric, vintage patterns, lingerie sewing notions and Ottobre magazines.
The girls have sorted out their huge book collections and have sold surplus to a second hand book shop. Charity shops are mostly not open by us yet so getting rid of stuff is trickier than normal. I have an exciting pre-arranged drop off slot tomorrow at my favourite one.
We are trying to eat down one freezer so we can move it which feels risky if there is another lockdown and shops struggle to supply again but that is the way it is.
We shared steak and chips with our friends as our first official invitation meal in our new house, they are helping us move on Sunday. All of our friends who have trailers and pick ups are entering their busy harvest time so we are grateful to have
lured asked them to help us before potato harvesting gets busy.
We were treated to a pastel skyline on Wednesday before we left, then watched the rain pour down with hours of lighting shows when we got back to our current house.
I will spare you the photo of neatly packed matching boxes because it really is not like that here, it is absolute chaos!
But all in all I know we will be just fine, I'm living the moment of moving day by day and enjoying putting our things into our newly built home.
What would you pack first?
Keep you posted. Jo xxxx
