Sunny Fridays and a general update...

It's Friday, the sun is shining and there's a general feeling of Spring/Summer in the air (I'm assuming - I haven't actually set foot outside today...)

I just wanted to thank you all for your kind words and support over my last post. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but I do agree that I think it was for the best. And next year, I can relax and complete the A to Z Challenge without feeling like I'm about to have a nervous breakdown.

I've been in Cumbria for the past week, and it was lovely to catch up with friends and family again. It still doesn't feel like I'm moving back - I've spent so long dreaming about it, it still doesn't seem real! But the Engineer will start his new job up there on the 18th April, so I guess there's no going back now.

The journey back to Norfolk seemed a lot easier this time around - I have to confess, the last few times I've done the journey, I've felt like crying (and I actually have cried on a couple of occasions), simply because I hated leaving Cumbria so much. So the fact that the next time I make that long, long, long drive, means that I'll be moving up there for good, makes me feel almost dizzy with happiness.

Do I have a job yet? Nope. Do we have anywhere to live? Nope. But you know what? I'm just so happy to be going home, that right now, I'm not stressing out. Give me a few days, and I'm sure it'll be a different story, but for now, I'm just going to enjoy the fact that in a month, I'll be home.

Anyway, despite the gorgeous weather, today I shall be inside, applying for jobs, tidying up and doing general life admin. The joys of being an adult...

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Have you ever made the decision to move back 'home'? Did you find it easy or hard to go back? Do you think it was the right choice?


  1. Being an adult is hard! Hopefully things go smoothly with the move and finding a job. At least you know you've made a decision that makes you happy.

  2. I tried, it didn't work out. But my family has never been an easy one to deal with. For me, home is where I make it right now, someday I'll find the peace I truly crave.
    Best wishes for all the changes coming your way. Lovely that your family is so precious and welcoming!

  3. Sounds like you're in the position I was in last September.. wedding, moving house and finding jobs; it all comes at once doesn't it! So excited for you that you're finally able to move back to Cumbria, and big congrats to the Engineer for getting that job!! xxxx


I love chatting and meeting new people :). Thanks for stopping by!
