A Big Decision

Well, if you hadn't already picked up on a few clues in the last post- we have decided to move house and also I have applied to work for a sabbatical to hold my position until September 2009... yep, you read it right 2009. If they say no then I will have to leave.
It's all came about because of the MIL decision not to look after Baby G. It's a big life changing decision for us all but I am pleased that it will mean that it will be me bringing up our babies and also that we can look for a house with a lawn where they can play although it will mean down sizing quite a bit. If I could pick up this house and put it in the middle of a field then that would be perfect but I don't think that that will happen-pity.
We are looking at an area close to where Hub works as that will give us a big saving on bus and taxi fares as he will be able to walk to there and back and will also mean that he will have a little bit more time to spend with us. Also our energy bills should also drop.
So there you go...


On the WIP front not a lot has happened as I have been working on the house, getting it ready but here are a few pics
The sun and the tree have been sewn

Sounds like you are going to be busy, it is nice to have time with the children if you can. Will you be moving far away? Your WIP looks good, hope you enjoyed Newcastle.

I am very pleased for you Lisa. It was obvious that this is what you were hoping for. We decided that it was more important to be with the kids than to save for a while. As it turns out it has also made for a happier marriage because I am also happier! Good luck!

I hope you thoroughly enjoy the time with your little ones. I always fought to stay home with mine, and we have never regretted it. And more time to sew!

Big changes on the horizon for you it seems - time with your children when they are small is precious, so it's great you'll be getting more of it. Looks like you know exactly how to make good use of it too.
