The tough thing about the change of plan was that we had to cram into 2 days what was going to be hard to achieve in 4. It was crazy busy and more than a little stressful. We had to pack all the things we wanted to move, rearrange the things we didn't, and keep the kids from mixing the 2 up. Sometimes it felt like 1 step forward, 2 steps back. Our house looked like a bomb had gone off. There was stuff everywhere.
In amongst this, we also needed to pack clothes etc to be away for a while, The Country Boy had to go and buy materials to renovate our farm house a little, and I needed to take Meg to the Children's Hospital for a checkup (she had hip dysplasia as a baby and had to wear a brace - all fine now).
Fortunately, we got there in the end, and are now ensconced in my lovely in laws house for a few days whilst we do some organising, and as I write this the rain is falling on the tin roof, the kids are playing happily and I am sitting by the fire!
