My count so far in fourteen years of marriage is nine different houses. Eight of the moves were to different places in England and the most recent one is to Germany and that was about four weeks ago. Ask your friends who also are Very Important Partners. It’s a good ice breaker as the familiarity of moving day is a shared experience as is the task of being faced with somewhere new that is not home ,but by necessity must become home. I always decide to call where I am staying home.
This makes me think of an eighties Paul Young vid ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat, That’s My Home.’ Maybe I saw that video too many times and law of attraction style waves have brought this way of life to me! No really, that can’t have happened. I preferred Wham. I know now that Duran Duran were cooler in hindsight, hindsight is a great thing. Skinny jeans seem like a good thing now. They won’t always. Trust me on this.
I’d love it if you could write in the comments to let me know your V.I.P. house moves number. What song do you think of in relation to moving house?
