Big News

I have made a decision. A BIG decision.

I have been considering it for a while. I had in fact, after weighing all the pros and cons firmly decided againt it in January.

Then .... pop....something just clicked in my head - I was obviously ready.

I changed my mind suddenly 2 weeks ago. The next day I started to plan and turn it into a reality.

I have decided to take a little time out. I just need to stop, regroup and breathe.

I applied and have been granted leave of absence from my job (the day after I decided).

It was an impulsive and decisive decision, but now it feels totally the right thing to do.

So what next...

I am selling my house and relocating the England for one year - no plan beyond that.
(and from a person with a slightly controlling nature this is huge)

Scary, yes, but necessary too.

The boys and I will initially move in with my sister and her family (because she is totally fab) and the boys will attend the local schools.

In the last two weeks I have started decluttering my house, appointed an estate agent, rented a storage locker, started cleaning and sorting my garden, painted some fences and sold my treadmill!!

Hopefully the house will be on the market within 5 weeks!!
That is an insane amount of work for a single working mother.

However, I've got this - I also have amazing friends.

and breathe........


  1. Oh wow Liz - that's a huge decision but how lovely it will be for you all to be close to family in England. A great opportunity for the boys to experience a different culture too and you've left it open for returning so I think that's great - you can try it out and if it doesn't work for you all, there's nothing to lose. Good luck with the next few weeks of planning and organising - deep breaths...it will all be worth it!! Ax

  2. How exciting, Liz! Prayers for a smooth transition!

  3. I am glad you went with your heart. Sometimes that is the best way to go. :) Praying all is well and will continue to go well.

  4. What a grand adventure. Prayers for peace as you make this change! xoxo
