It's oh so quiet...

You may have noticed that I've been a little quiet recently. I'm afraid I've been neglecting my blog, Twitter AND my website but it's all for a good reason.... We sold our flat and have moved into a new house!
We put the flat on the market at the start of May, once I'd got the London marathon out of the way, and we had already seen the house we wanted to buy so thought it would all move quickly. But there were a few critical negotiations following the surveys, and it seemed things were going to go slower than we initially thought so we relaxed. And then suddenly everything sped up and we had only one week to pack up our entire lives and move!
In a way, I think it was better that way as there was only so long we could live in 'Boxland'! It definitely unsettled both Lewis and Raoul (the cat) so in a way it was a relief to actually move. We bought a book about moving house for Lewis so that we could start talking about the process and he seemed excited by the 'house with the red door'.

The actual moving day was hard, hard work. But ten hours later all our boxes had been shifted three miles down the road and we waved a sad goodbye to our old flat. But a new chapter for the Tobin family has begun and I'm really excited about it!

I'll be taking a small break from This is Wiss duties - I have a few orders to complete but I'm afraid I won't be taking any more until the 1st September. This should give me time to locate the boxes with my fabric stash and dust off the sewing machine!

We don't have Internet connection at the new house yet so I will only be able to blog during my lunch hour at work! But I'll be back on Twitter soon - I am missing everyone!

Thank you for your patience and I look forward to catching up with you all soon. In the meantime, please feel free to let me know what you're up to this Summer and anything I may be missing out on!

See you soon!
