Operation Preparation : MOVING!

I hate moving. I know I'm not alone in this. It's incredibly stressful and scary. In the lead up to the big day you have a never ending list of things to do, and then it's the same at your new home! Pretty overwhelming. Lists are your friend. So are daily schedules. It breaks the whole thing down into something tangible, controllable and visible!

I have been slightly limited in what I can do at the moment, because I don't want to cause Lily any stress. This is her second house move, and while she finds exploring a new home very exciting, she doesn't like seeing her home being taken apart. She does, however, love having so many boxes lying around to play in!! With this in mind, she is staying with her cattery auntie from Monday until Friday.

This gives me 2 days to clean without having to worry about fumes, noise and general kitty stress. I can pack things away without having to continually scoop Lily out of the box I'm trying to fill! She doesn't like it when mummy is rushing back and forth from room to room so this really is the best thing for us, as much as I'm going to miss her!

So. Until then, I have been focusing on the really boring side of things like changing addresses, writing letters, accounting, budgeting and planning. I've sorted out my clothes and there is another charity bag ready to go. I've had to be really brutal with myself and just face the fact that my body has changed and I probably won't see a size 8 again. Not nice.

I'm still trying to find a new GP surgery. It's pretty scary leaving my old team. They know me pretty well and starting all over again can cause real problems in the beginning. I'm scared I won't find a GP that I can work with. I'm scared of a full-blown relapse. I'm.... scared.

I've done as much as I can now, so I am resting until Monday. I need to store up as much energy as possible because the next week, 10 days or so, are going to be absolutely crazy.

As you can probably tell, I'm still struggling to 'talk'.

I'm really sorry that things have gone quiet on here. Things will get back to normal soon, and I have plans in the making for a new(ish) layout, pages and other cool stuff so stick with me through this rough patch girls!
