Our New Home



Our move to our new house went perfectly on Friday. We took Maxwell to Auntie Rachel's on Thursday morning with his suitcase as he was staying the night. We then headed off to collect the keys for our new home. Mine and Ben's family helped to re-clean the house during the afternoon and my Dad and I cleaned the carpets upstairs. Everything was fresh and smelling nice ready for our furniture and massives of boxes on Friday. With everyones help on Friday by 8 pm all curtains and lampshades were hung, furniture put in place, beds made, clothes hung in wardrobes, and 95% of the boxes were unpacked. Our new home looked fantastic.

Maxwell had a lovely time with my sister Rachel. She took Maxwell to a farm with her friend and her toddler E on Thursday. Maxwell had a brilliant time and loved getting lots of fresh air as well as spending time with a little friend. Maxwell and E shared the food to feed the animals and Maxwell loved the chickens. As it was sunny they had their lunch and sat on their picnic mat. Maxwell had a fantastic time and was very tired. On Friday afternoon Rachel brought Maxwell to our new house and he helped her to put all his clothes and toys in his new bedroom.


Maxwell has settled well which I am glad about as this was one of my main worries before we moved. I thought that he would find it strange to adapt to a new house but he seems to be a very happy little boy in our new house. We have set up lots of his toys in the conservatory and he loves to go and get his cars to play in the lounge as he uses our large lounge mat as a car circuit with our legs being tunnels.

The new house has also helped me and Ben do daily tasks more easily. Ben is now able to clean his car in the driveway and it is much more easy to carry the shopping in from the car as before we sometimes had to park a long distance away from our maisonette and then carry shopping up the stairs and through 2 large doors.


The area we have moved to is fantastic. There is a lot of free space to roam and explore and today Maxwell and I walked to the Doctors. On the way we stopped at the stream and then went to the play park. Maxwell loves the slide and the climbing frame but is still uncertain on the swing. We did a little shopping and headed home. I am really happy to be bringing Maxwell up in this area, it is quiet, people are friendly and we love exploring the outdoors.

Ben, Maxwell and I love our new home.
