Moving to a New House is the Most Stressful Thing in your Life

Moving house is the most stressful thing in your life.

True fact.

I thought I knew what stress was, but I really didn’t until now.

Back in February we put our house on the market, we were going to buy a new build. A gorgeous 3 bed detached house and garage in a little plot all by itself with a large garden. Ever since I was little I always wanted a double fronted house, you know those ones that you draw in pictures when you were little.

Well this was my chance to get my own dream house.

So anyway we had 3 estate agents come around and value our 4 bed 3 storey town house and when we were happy with the price it went on the market. We had on average a couple of views a week for 6 weeks but no one seemed to be biting.

Alternative Ways to Share Your Memories with Family and Friends

Okay so, I know that Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are all really useful ways for keeping in touch with family and friends when you spend time apart. But, sometimes it sucks that the main way to keep in contact with loved ones that we’re far away from is by posting on a Facebook wall, favouriting a tweet or liking an Instagram post.

With this in mind, I’ve put together a few alternative ways that you can share your memories with family and friends, to ensure you don’t became another face in an endless sea of Facebook friends:

Sending a Special Gift To a Loved One

What do you buy for a sister’s 40th birthday that lives overseas? I want it to be a special gift as you only turn 40 once, but of course it can’t really be breakable and something that is allowed to fly to that country.

It’s gonna be weird not seeing my sister on such a special birthday, it was the same a few years back when I had my 30th. We are very close, always have been but it’s hard when you live over 3000 miles apart in different time zones. When we do see each other we catch up as if we saw each other only yesterday.
