Settling into our new home!

Oh my goodness, moving house is not for sissies!!  What a huge mission.  We moved two weekends ago, with the help of a huge moving van, and 3 family members with bakkies.  The next weekend we continued moving with the help of another family member with a minivan!

Can't believe how much stuff we have.  And how much junk we have, haha!  We hired a mini-skip and filled it to the brim with things to chuck away.  I donated boxes and bags of things to charity.  It was good to do a bit of a clean-up!

We're settling into our new home - but there's still lots to do.  Lots to unpack, and I can't wait to hang all my paintings, ornaments and decor - those are the things that will make this space feel more like mine.

The kids and the dogs have adjusted well!  Mia loves the fact that the bedrooms are not so far away from the kitchen anymore - so she plays happily in her room.

Not finished unpacking yet - and I hate that there are still boxes standing around...  hopefully will finish everything this weekend.


  1. It's a stunning house, can't wait for more piccies (nosey me)
    I would hate to move now. It's amazing how much you accumulate.
    Good to hear everyone is settling in. LOL at the kids being closer to the kitchen. Is that to be near the food or closer to Mum?

  2. It sure is hard work, Jess! Can't believe you are settling in already! Feels like just the other day you told me you are moving. Good luck with the last boxes and enjoy making the new house your home xx

  3. Moving is definitely not for sissies! Glad you guys are settling nicely. Unpacking boxes are always a mission, so good luck with finishing off the last of that and enjoy making the house yours.

  4. Congratulations on your move! Your home looks beautiful! I hope you're all settled now!
    Thanks for reading my blog, by the way, it really means a lot

  5. Looks like a beautiful place! COngrats


Would love to hear from you! :-)
