Ok, things are really shifting up several gears all at once at this end. I have a provisional date for moving (next Thursday), the van is booked and various calls to all and sundry are being got through.
On a practical level, all is in hand. Emotionally...well that's another story. Suffice to say this is the hardest bit. Being somewhat in limbo, waiting to sign and get the keys, not being able to pack because my GP has just diagnosed a back problem that requires physio. Hence the wobbly legs. I feel I should ask for an X-ray. But would this be getting too hysterical?
Anyway, to spare everyone too much rambling, and to hopefully ease the hysteria, there is a point to all this. I am just wondering how the hell I am going to get through a move and manage to protect my already precarious state of health from worsening. Because this is my big fear. Not being able to cope. Deteriorating. Everything going tits up. Or do I just go with the flow and accept I will feel extra ill for a few weeks.
Also, as I would like to settle in and see my son settled as quickly as can be achieved, I would appreciate any bright ideas on making a new place homely, without excessive DIY? Little touches. I have my pink fairy cube lights for starters, and I'm thinking accessories largely, things that make a room cosy, magical even. I had a vague idea about making a bead curtain...If any crafty sorts out there have any other ideas that can be made inexpensively but with that soothing touch, please do let me know. Projects need to be able to be done largely from a reclining position :-)
