“A change is as good as a holiday.” At this point in the moving process I beg to differ. It’s widely accepted that moving home is one of the most stressful things you can do and even though this process for me is going quite smoothly it still sucks. Over the past week I’ve been putting things into a storage unit to bridge the six-week gap between moving out and getting access to the new place. All in all it’s going fine but I am noticing that I’m not sleeping well.

As much as I hate having to impose on my sister and her family by staying with them for so long I am hoping that it will be a nice change of perspective for me. Being single it can be very easy to get wrapped up in yourself. Being at my sister’s house with her and her husband and the two kids will shake me up and make me more aware that there are people with a lot more responsibility on their plate than just work and rent.

One of the weeks I’m there I will be alone so that will be nice as well. I can’t wait to get settled into my new place though. It feels like it’s been a long time coming.
