Let's start getting organised

The thought of several containers arriving in the next month (yes I did say several) is making me feel a little edgy.
Will we find a place for all our things?
Is the garage big enough - in case it won't all fit?
How much can stand outside?
As you can imagine ORGANISE is the key word on my brain.

I started here ...

Went on to this great blog Storage and Glee
who had lovely ideas like this

and ended up writing this blog
to encourage you, dear reader, to do what I have failed so far to do ...

sort out the piles and put the laptop away.

P.S. Any tips for fitting a mountain into a mole hill gratefully received.

I've come a long way in a week

Last week this was my world ... 

millions of people living within a thirty mile radius of me, with all the energy and distraction that provides.

 This week ...
I hung out my washing on a clothes line - the first time for 9 years (the air in Beijing was too dusty/dirty).

Back story for those who don't know me: 
We have lived in Beijing for the last nine years - loving almost every moment of it. I don't miss the crazy drivers or polluted air. Now we are back in the Uk after 13 years away (Copenhagen prior to Beijing).  Our home is in Suffolk, where there are more pigs than people, so we can be sure of bringing home good bacon and enjoying the clean air.

Oh to be in England ...

After 13 years away, we are back in England and planning to stay a while.
Whether you are from the Uk, have been to the Uk or just love "Four weddings and a Funeral" - there should be something to sum up your view of the UK on the map above. Would love to hear your thoughts.
 (Thanks Astrid for sending me this and getting me back in my groove).

It's been a long 5 weeks  away from this blog, but if you saw how far we have travelled in those weeks I think you will understand my absence.
Hope that you will join me again soon.
