So if you know me well or know me by following me on twitter & instagram ‘Links below’.
Then you will know that I have had to move yet again, now I say had to because I was practically bullied out of mine and jakes first home. For those that read the post of myself and Jake moving into our first home then you would have seen the flat inside and out this time i’m not showing pictures due to my privacy and keeping it from certain people.
If you want to know what happened with my neighbour then you can read my post Neighbour from hell!, that post goes into full detail to what I have been having to put up with, within this past year! To say the least that was just a part of it whilst having all these problems with trying to re house myself and Jake, my grandad had passed too which invovled travelling to and from essex visiting in hospital to his funeral which again if you want to know the ins and outs then you can read them posts here.
On the 11th of August 2018 I picked the keys up to a two bedroom house which again is mine and Jake’s forever home! This time not only is the house bigger but the place we live and the neighbours its a lot better! I’m not going to sit here and be like yeah moving in was a breeze, settling Jake in was no problem because it was far from all that! We might have picked the keys up on the 11th but we didnt stay there and move in properly till the 20th august as I wanted to do it all properly and by that I mean I wanted the tv and internet to be set up and also the house had no curtains, I had no drawers for my clothes and no locks on the bathroom doors.
So how did settling Jake into the house go I hear you ask? Well todays date is the 26th of august, It took Jake a week to stop playing up and alot of ‘In your room you go’ action as Jake might be in his ‘terrible two’s’ but I can tell that this wasnt the case. Even though Jake rarely stayed in his own room before he did adapt to that really well and now his bedtime routine is alot better than what it was before. Jake’s temper and the way he was acting at the new house it was ranging from throwing things, to beating my tv screen with his toys (it’s fine the tv is fine!), banging on the walls, running round the house riot. It got to a point where he had to spend a day or two with my mum and dad to get him out of the house not only for his sake but to save my sanity as I was stressed and struggling but I’m ok with opening up with that because it’s not always a barrel of laughs especially if you’re raising a child on your own.
So there was how my moving in went, Has anyone has to settle their toddler in and how did your expierence go?.
