Coping with moving house

House moves are widely recognised to be one of the most stressful experiences, up there with relationship breakdowns, divorce and starting a new job.  In our first house move we faced a lot of change.  In the space of six weeks we had sold our car, got married, had a two week honeymoon, moved house from Bath to the Scottish Highlands (12 hour drive!) and bought a new car.  In amongst those six weeks Christmas also happened.  It was all sorts of emotion from huge highs to late nights packing boxes and sorting logistics.

Now we’re on the verge of our next move and I’m determined for it to be less stressful.  This time we don’t have a wedding or a honeymoon (those were the huge highs before!) but we do have a looming deployment which always adds pressure to the time we have together.  So on this thread I’ll be sharing my thoughts on how to make a housemove more manageable.

To start with I’ll be doing a ‘Marie Kondo’ on all our stuff pre-move.  If you don’t know who Marie Kondo is I suggest you give her a follow on Instagram: @MarieKondo and check out her website: http://tidyingup.com/.  I’ll be sharing my updates on Instagram and on here so stay tuned!
