As I mentioned in last week's blog, I have found somewhere to move to, but thanks for all your kind offers of spare rooms.
I keep trying to move further west to be a little closer to QVC's new premises at Chiswick Park, but while we still have Daniel, our son, living with us we also have to take his work into consideration. He is coaching at the Crystal Palace Academy, which is located in Beckenham, so the further west we go, the longer his drive to training will be!
So it had to be another compromise in terms of location, as we will just be inching about ten minutes drive in the general direction of Chiswick Park. We will also be even closer to Sophie so I am sure she will be making good use of our back garden at the weekends as her little flat doesn't have any outside space.
I am looking forward to moving and the packing hasn't seemed half so bad this time… I wonder if I will still be saying that next Wednesday??? My only slight concern is that the new house doesn't have a separate utility room which is where Poppy had her food, litter tray and bed in both the current house and our old house, so she may feel a little unsettled to start with. Maybe she will enjoy having more of a free rein at night time?
She knows something is going on as there are boxes starting to accumulate everywhere. She scared herself this morning by brushing against and subsequently knocking over some unmade boxes that were leaning against the book case! Result? She wouldn't eat her breakfast, and she has been hiding under Daniel's bed ever since – she really is the scarediest cat you have ever met!
Busy weekend ahead with the Decleor TSV tomorrow which I think you will love. Enjoy the sunshine (if you have it in your part of the British Isles),
Love Julia x
