    Finding our New ‘Lake’ at the New House

    We’ve been in our house about a month now, but it still feels very new. There are cardboard boxes piled high in almost every room and although I feel each day we get a little closer to be officially unpacked – there’s a lot still to do. We’ll get there. It’s just taking time. Sometimes I never feel we have enough of these days. As much as I want to get it done, I don’t feel any pressure to hurry along or get stressed about it. We’ll take it slow and steady and just celebrate each little victory.

    Before our move, my main worry was for Pickle. I wasn’t sure how he’d cope with a new home, taking him away from everything he’s ever known. But I couldn’t have been more surprised with how well he’s taken to his new environment.

    The Ordinary Moments – Feeding the Ducks

    This week, whilst I worked on the local election count, I got chatting to a family friend. Her lovely family feels like part of our family, and she told me that she always reads my posts and is glad I’m taking the time to document as much as I can of Pickle’s early life. She told me these memories are so precious. And that I’ll be so glad of them in the years to come. It’s easier to remember the big moments: the birthdays, the big days out and the holidays. And it’s all so easy to forgetĀ The Ordinary Moments. Which is why I make sure I write about them whenever I can.
