A little bit of back story

Happy New Year!

I wish everyone health, happiness, and prosperity for 2013.  For us it means a big (in terms of importance) move, and this blog is going to be all about moving, and settling in to our new home.  It's going to give me a chance to think about the progress we're making (as it's so easy to get bogged down in the negative), and hopefully it might be useful to other people too!

So a quick introduction.  We are a family of five, living in Scotland.  I'm Cara - a full time Mum with a background in sociological research, and breastfeeding stuff.  I like making stuff, walking, and having fun with my family and friends.  I'm married to Kenny, who has an important job, doing really useful science stuff.  He's got a PhD, and is really clever, and really good fun too.

We have three children.  You don't need to know their names, so I'll call them the boy (he's 7, funny, caring, and incredibly bouncy), the big girl (she's 5, gorgeous, entertaining, and quirky), and the little girl (she's 2, terrible, tremendous and amazing).  Everyone else is to the right, and I'm below.

We live in a lovely little town at the moment, with great friends, and a great school, and great transport links, and some days it doesn't rain!

The rain really really really bugs me.  Today is the second day of this year, and the second consecutive day of rain this year (I stopped counting last year, it was too depressing).

We are not moving because of the rain however, but because Kenny has been promoted.  He starts his new job next Monday.  We are really proud of him, but we miss him like crazy when he's away, and for the next few weeks he's going to be away most of the time, so we're making the most of being on holiday together this week.

The move is going to be good because we're going to be staying put in one place for the first time in a long time, and because we're going to be living near relatives for the first time since we had children, which is going to be fantastic, and interesting.  Also, we are moving to a big town with good schools, and a train link, and lots of fun things to do, and actual shops where you can buy actual things!!!  It is very exciting, but first we have to move!

I think that's enough for the first installment.  Next time I'll tell you about searching for, and finding a house, and all the parameters involved.
