I think moving house is a bit like traveling for the over 30s – it becomes a bigger and bigger deal as you get older!
My friend Mary over at the moving house blog is facing the upheaval of moving across country – and its not like she’s actually doing it because she wants to – its because she following her husband across the world!
Is that fair- would you do that! I know how much of a deal it is just to temporarily go travelling and yet still have a base to return to – it must be so much worse if you are moving house for someone else’s reasons!
The issues with relocating tend to increase with the distance that you are travelling to- moving in the same suburb means the kids don’t have to relocate school, moving across town does. Moving inter-state is worse but moving overseas is the worst!
We will probably move country again in the next year or so. We always treated this as a temporary move so it wouldn’t be to much drama as we are in a furnished apartment here, I am still not looking foreward to the packing though!
