Little boxes, on the hillside

We are packing, packing, packing, off on our sabbatical year in Italy in a few weeks. Of course, because I packed my sewing stuff first, I am now totally incapable of doing anything creative. Bother! The Spring was a whirl of too much work, not enough sewing, and unexpected work responsibilities. Interesting, but exhausting.

Chicken-keeping class booked, kids signed up in local schools for September, and research institution awaiting me for the autumn. But, before then, we have a flat, a chalet and an office to pack up. Boxes, boxes, boxes. Oh joy.

It’s all about the process, we tell ourselves… JJ

    Have I told you lately how jealous I am? πŸ˜‰ I hope the move goes smoothly, and that you’re nicely settled in soon

    I can’t believe I will miss you TWO PITP’s in a row! We may need to come sew in Italy next. πŸ˜„

    I can totally relate to you! We are in the same phase right now, we are moving to Geneva in a few weeks… Good luck with everything.

    • To Geneva? How fabulous! That is where we are… leaving from. You can inherit my quilting network for a year! Miss E, for a start, is fabulous. Sign up for her next quilting retreat, as a settling-in-treat to yourself! (http://www.busyneedle.ch/) We come back August 2015. Strength, courage and patience with your boxes meanwhile. JJ
