Starting Over . . . Again.

I have been pretty quiet on here for a while as we have been rather busy with things like moving to another country with three small children in tow. Finding new schools, Dr's, the local supermarket, library, town centre and the best place to get a quick cup of tea. Not to mention the unpacking and reorganising of ones belongings, there always seem to be odd bits left over. Where do they all come from?
Anyway in the first week I think I went five different ways to preschool and got lost twice on the way to school. Saying that our new school is so much nicer that the school we left behind I don't mind so much the getting lost. My little one is so much happier here, he talks about school everyday, he loves after school club and he has made friends with the boys in his class. Preschool is working out pretty well too, we have new best friends and plans to grow up and be farmers together. There is something to be said for being much closer to the countryside. We drive past a dairy farm on the way to school and have been known to stop and have the windows licked. The children love it.
They are hard to capture from a phone in the car.
I have to admit to finding it much harder to adjust myself, in the beginning the middle one would ask things like 'I think I am really naughty Mummy, is that why I can't see Edward and my friends at preschool now and have a new preschool' I was in tears a lot. The school playground was also a new experience for me, in three weeks four people spoke to me. I missed my friends and neighbours. It's still an uphill scramble but things are starting to look easier.
Lets hope after half term everything falls into place.
So that's me. How about you?


  1. That's a big move and as a mum you have to deal with not only your emotions but those of everyone else's. I think things will settle down soon and you will feel more settled. I think letting the cows luck the windows is a fantastic thing to do on the school run, we only pass sheep and they just aren't as much fun!! Take care xx Tracy xx

    1. Thank you Tracy. We see some sheep too but they are firmly in their field. ;)

  2. I'm sure you'll feel more settled as time goes by. I cried pretty-much non-stop when we first moved to Germany. But now, 11 years later, we can't see ourselves living anywhere else! Just give it a bit more time.....

    1. Getting there Carly. Boys been invited to parties and I went on a school Mums night out so starting to find our place. :) xx
