Apparently the three most stressful situations in life are death, divorce and moving house. Now I don’t fancy the first one much and have already endured the awfulness of the second but at the moment I am watching my sister and nieces upping sticks and moving house. They have lived in the same house for over 25 years so it is a big job. I was visiting at the week end and I have never seen so many boxes in my life. I swear that if I had stood still long enough my sister would have bubble wrapped me and stuffed me in a box. While helping to pack I did politely remind her that this massive change she was making was self imposed. Change happens all the time. Sometimes we chose to make changes ourselves but at other times change can be imposed on us by others. I would reckon that chances are, the changes we chose will be the least stressful and the ones we will get the most out of. I certainly hope so for my sister and nieces. And of course having a good solicitor and estate agent helping you along every step of the way when you are moving house certainly helps !
