Leaving Burns Street

So I finally left my home of 4 years this week & moved in with my parents who live closer to Liverpool. This has been one of the major hurdles for me in the build up to our trip. Not just in the sense that I have managed to accumulate a lot of things during my time on the lovely Burns Street and getting it out of there in time before new tenants were to move in! But the fact that I’ve really loved living there, it’s been my own place to do what the hell I want, when I want & I’ve loved it! So having to let go of it (a material thing) has been really difficult for me, but I feel that the excitement & planning involved with notworkrelated has kept me well distracted & it was only this week that got to me.

This move means we are getting closer to our leaving date…I have so much sorting out to do & we still have travel plans to finalise, but I guess this is part of the parcel of going away for a year…at least that’s what my parents keep telling me. I will enjoy my time here with them though & make the most of seeing my family whilst we’re still here. Over the next few weeks I’ll be seeing close friends, catching up with my brother, his girlfriend & their beautiful daughter Sukie, as well as buying our last minute items for the trip, so no doubt we will have a few more updates before we go.

So fairwell to my happy home that has given me a real sense of security over the last few years, I will miss my home and friends in Leicester, but now it’s time for someone else to enjoy living there.
