It's nice when it stops!
After 21 hours on 2 aeroplanes with a 2 hour stop at Doha, we landed at Birmingham International Airport on Tuesday last week. A few days at my parents' house and then on to Liverpool to our new home. We arrived yesterday lunchtime.
For this little introvert it has been a fraught couple of weeks - removal men in the house for three days; a blessed weekend at a beach house; flights!; snowed in at my parents' house. And all with a very limited set of art materials and no quiet space to retreat to.
Now we are in our new house and we each retreat to our own rooms for space. My new studio is about half the size of the last one, but I'm already planning where everything will fit. Thankfully we got rid of lots of stuff before it was all packed into the shipping container.
But for now we are in that liminal space where we are living with kindly donated furniture etc. It feels like being a student again. We will certainly appreciate all our stuff when it arrives.
