Yay, Matts is home from his first week of work and the doggos are very excited! It’s crazy that he’s finished week one already, and I’m very thankful to say he’s enjoyed it. He spent the week doing training, but he’s enjoyed learning new things, and is looking forward to the work that he’ll be doing with all his new knowledge!
It still feels like we’re just on holiday here, because we’re staying with Matthew’s folks. There’s still the thought of “Oh, when do we need to drive back to Aberdeen?”, but that’s no longer the case. Well, I’m heading down there on Wednesday to do some bits n bobs, but that’s just for the day! In the evening I’ll be heading home to Inverness again. This move happened so fast we still can’t believe it’s actually happened!
We’ve had one viewing on the flat in two and a half weeks…to be honest I’m really surprised we haven’t had loads more interest! I was really expecting people wanting to view it instantly and getting a quick sale, because it’s in such a great location and it’s so bright and spacious. But, it’s all in the Lord’s hands, and he has a reason for the waiting, so we’ll trust in Him and take things as they come.
Well, isn’t this the year of big announcements…Matthew and I have got some crazy news for y’all; we’re moving to Inverness!! In four weeks!
I’ve wanted to move north for a number of years now, and back in April Matthew finally came round to the idea and we started looking in to it. Recently Matts has applied to a few jobs in the area, and last week he was offered a job! He starts in 4 weeks so this past week has been a bit of a whirlwind. We’ve had someone in to value the flat and I bought boxes and made a start at packing. I wanted to get one final family photo in our lovely first home before we started taking photos off the wall and packing everything away…slightly emotional! Can we all just take a moment to appreciate our adorable dog, and the fact that he jumped up on that foot stool and looked at the camera ALL BY HIMSELF! We’ve been nailing this self timer family portrait thing recently!
So yeah…crazy times ahead! Baby Mac will be here in the next 9-13 weeks (hopefully not any sooner with all the excitement of what’s going on!) and in that time Matthew will be finishing this job and starting a new one in the space of a few days, we’ll be putting the flat up for sale, and hopefully selling it quickly so we’re able to find a new home in Inverness (so if you know anyone looking for a beautiful, bright, two bed flat in Aberdeen send them our way)! Thankfully, in the mean time, we can live with Matthew’s folks, but we do hope to have somewhere of our own before Baby Mac makes an appearance.
It’s a slightly emotional time, as Aberdeen has been my home for 21 years and we have wonderful family and friends here, it’s where Matthew came to study, where we met and started our life as Mr and Mrs Macleod, and we are very sad to be leaving, but we’re also excited for new adventures and feel like Inverness is the right place to be!
