New here so just wanted to say hello to everyone.
I am a wife, mother to two sons and have a grand daughter.
Just moved house, so in an uproar at the moment and Gransnet has proved to be a welcome distraction when fed up with unpacking boxes!

Hello and welcome Flicker.

Hello Flicker and welcome. There's a very friendly daily Good Morning thread, starts around 6.15/6.30, which you may enjoy. I moved house at Christmas once, put the tree up on Boxing Day. smile

Hello and welcome. Good luck with unpacking everything. That's always a big job.

Thank you!
Will check out the morning thread, I have dogs who insist that 5:30am is a perfectly good time tombe getting up, so will be an early contributor 😁

Still got stuff packed in the loft - since 1993. I feel a NY resolution looming!

Hello. I hope the move was not too stressful.

Welcome Flicker to which part of the country have you moved- I am assuming maybe wrongly it is England?

Welcome Flicker !

Thnks everyone!

I am living in Teesside. Just moved from a very rural property to live somewhere that has shops within walking distance, a bus stop just around the corner (no idea where the buses go yet)😄 and a community centre with lots going on - in normal times.
It is amazing!
Still finding my feet, but so happy I made the move. It was a dramatic downsizing exercise and I had some wobbles along the way, but 100% sure it was the right thing to do now.
Anyone else in my area?
