Our Family in April has had adventures, chilled out weekends, no late marks for school (#win), far too many chocolate eggs and a massive shift on the house moving front. I’d say overall it has been a pretty successful month and one that has certainly flown by.
Our Pictures this month were taken on the very first day of April when we enjoyed a wonderful visit to Edinburgh / The Scottish boarders with my “big sister” and her family, and then a bonus one from the seaside on probably the only Spring feeling day (Alice is on my back).
Scotland was the ultimate adventure with a picnic tea and road trip after school, to stay in a beautiful old Scottish house in the middle of no where, and whilst very tiring, it was so brilliant and loved by us all. The weather was great, the scenery great, the company great and it was the best way to start off our month and Easter break from school.
The castle was fab, and we just had a very much needed break and enjoyed being together.
The Easter holidays were more random and sporadic than what our norm has been. But it worked well, the kids enjoyed themselves and we had some fun days out. I loved that by the time they went back to school, the month was half way done, we were a step closer to summer and weeks away from more breaks and school holidays.
The biggest thing this month, aside from trips and no school, was certainly to do with the move! We have commented to each other recently that moving house is very much like expecting a baby – People ask for an update all the time! They like to ask whats happening, if there any changes and “when is it all happening” (id only we knew). Its so funny… all fine obviously, and lovely too they’re all so interested in our family, but it’s funny too.
So for all those who are asking, dare’nt ask, or couldn’t give two hoots… we pulled out of the house we were buying (for several reasons) and made an offer this week on another. The offer was accepted and whilst we are still moving to East Yorkshire, the village is different, the school and house are different, and we are quite possibly way more excited about it than we already were.
Our house sale is almost ready to sign (at least that’s what we are led to believe), and so it looks like we may have a couple of weeks of homelessness – or living with parents! Thankfully though our new sellers are very keen and we hope to move fast with the purchase to get the kids into school by the summer term (June for those who aren’t in school). So fingers crossed we have no more changes and curve balls!
My only wish for May is for more adventures, lots of warmth and sunshine (please), and a moving date! Not much then… we are on the countdown now to Megsies 5th Birthday in June and so its all wish lists and cake planning here, and of course … lots more packing!
In April we are Grateful for:
* Our House sale going well
*Our offer being accepted on the New one
*A trip to Edingburgh
*A reliable car
*Generous people giving chocolatey gifts
