Good morning and happy hump day to all of you where ever you may be this minute. As you may know we’ve just moved house a week and a half a go and boy what a mission it’s been! I’m really hoping this is the last move for quite some time because it’s so much work it’s not funny. Which got me thinking is it really moving house or a house removal?? While you don’t uproot the actual house and take it with you it sure feels that way. By the time you have everything in boxes and bags and loaded into a trucks, cars, trailer and do 2 or three trips it kind of feel more like a house removal.
I’ve always preferred setting up house as opposed to packing it up. Unpacking never seems as much work but then you have the fun of trying to figure out where everything belongs in a new house. And that’s the bit I love most, that’s my designer/decorator side of me that says ‘woohoo now the fun really begins…..’ I’m pretty sure only us designer guys and gals get it lol…
It’s no secret I couldn’t stand Capel after only a few months and it was literally our friends on the other side of town that helped keep me sane…..we’ve all heard of a one horse town right? Well Capel must be the horse capital in W.A lol and that was fine because there’s nothing more beautiful than driving down the road and seeing a lovely mare….However! Capel also believes in being a one street town! Everything you need (the bare necessities and I do mean bare) are on the one and only main street of town. ‘That’s great’ I hear you thinking and it probably is if you don’t mind spending every other day travelling to either Busselton or Bunbury to get something as simple as jocks and sock! Yep not even anywhere in Capel to buy something to cover your bum and feet….and don’t even get me started on the lycra crowd hehehe oh boy…..
OK I know it sounds like I’m bitching but there were some positives to come out of living in Capel. My wonderful hubby finally found a job he loves doing and does less hours for much better income than his previous job, I discovered just how strong my love of design is and started doing my diploma of interior design/decoration (though I have to say I also started it because after 2 months in Capel I was going stir crazy lol), I rediscovered my love of pilates and working out and I also started doing Jamberry Nails for some extra income which I love as you know from previous post. We made some new friends and explored new places. Francis and Bec both grew heaps and loved country life. Luke lost a lot of independence really but now we’re somewhere he can start getting that back……..unfortunately the con’s outweigh the pro’s but I do believe we were in Capel for a reason and I also believe we left Capel at the right time for a reason…..While Capel is a lovely little town to visit on a stop through to Perth or Busselton it’s not somewhere I’ll be moving back to any time soon…hence the house removal hehe…
So now we’re in a new house and while the area is a little more suburbia than country than I’d like I’m happy with our location and new house……I’m enjoying setting up the house which believe me is still a work in process but it’s getting there and thankfully the beach is literally 5 minutes up the road! Thank goodness for that…… As I’m still setting up I’ll have pics of the new place up in a day or two…….So now I’m off to do the mum thing and get the kiddies some lunch before putting Francis down for a nap….
So I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and the week ahead….take care for now..
