So, my big news

I've been a 'soft southerner' for all my life. Born in St. Mary's hospital Paddington, living my early years in Harlesden in West London, then moving out to the suburbs of Greater London. This time is now coming to an end. Our family are moving North.

Specifically, to the North West... Stockport to be exact.

We have sold our house, bought a new one, and are now in the process of packing and clearing out all the shite we have accumulated over the years. This in itself is a massive job. Those of you who have bought a house know that this is one of the most stressful things you can do in your life, and this is the third time we've done it. However, there is a big difference between relocating within the same town, to moving over 200 miles up the country!

We have found a fantastic school for Jake up there, and he's really looking forward to our new adventure. My employer has an office fairly locally, and are allowing me the flexibilty to work there, so that's a big help.

And so, for the next couple of weeks, I'll keep you up to date with what's going on, how the whole move is going etc. I've been sitting on this knowledge for a while now, and it's been hard not sharing it with you all, but I have my reasons(!)

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Soundtrack of the day: "The Singles" - Inspiral Carpets.

Soundtrack of the day should surely be "Moving" by Supergrass?!

It would be if it wasn't shite.

When you do move don't forget to put name on boxes utter crap, pointless crap....

Then when you open the boxs in your new house you think why did I bother.

I had that problem 16 weeks ago.

I must still decide what to do Memorabilia that I have collected or won over the years. I have boxes footie programes, football trophys which I haven't botherd to put up since I moved.

I must decide what to do with them and now I'm collecting baby goods for our impending new arrival.

Good luck with it all

That all sounds very exciting (okay, "stressful"). Thanks for not keeping us in suspense for too long.

Hope it all goes well for you. Must admit to being slightly envious, being a northerner myself - and you won't be too far from the Peak District.

Wishing you a smooth move,
SueH

Very kind Sue - thank you :-)

Good luck in the whole move and especially the build up to the move (the worst bit)

My tip for sorting out crap from a loft? Be ruthless. If you haven't needed it in the last year, then chances are you'll never need it.

I also agree with what Colin wrote; anything Fulham-related mark as crap!!
