Finding Your Groove While Moving Home


When you move house as a parent, there’s a lot to consider. For the more disorganised among us, it’s a time that demands that we get into shape and prioritise certain things - however, knowing what needs doing first and foremost, as well as taking care of the kids and keeping them entertained during the whole process, is something that can be overwhelming to the best of us. Let’s break it down.

Keep The Tunes Going

With the invention of wireless speakers, there’s no reason not to have music flowing around whichever room you’re in to speed up the process. Packing can be a dull thing, especially if you’re having to declutter whilst doing it. A lot of parents may be tempted just to shove everything that they come across into a box without much thought as to what it is, thinking that they’ll just deal with it when they get into the other house, but try to avoid doing this as much as you can. You don’t want to give yourself jobs on the other side; it’s going to be a busy time as it is finding a new home for everything.

Look For De-Stress Tips

The more hints that you can get from parents who have already done it before about how to go about completing your house move in a calm way, the better. Take heed of them; look for ten tips for stress free moving as your ultimate foundation and work on it from there. The more that you can put into practice, the quicker that you’ll find the move goes; time flies when you’re having a good time, after all.

Keep Yourself Fed And Hydrated

It can be easy to lose any established routine when you’re moving house, especially when it comes to food and drink. You may think that just grabbing a bite to eat here and a gulp of a drink there will be enough to sustain you, but it’s not. Take some time out to sit down with your children, if they’re there, and give yourself the nourishment that you need to get through the day. Always keep a drink on hand and ensure that you are keeping yourself topped up throughout everything that you are doing; it can be easy to become dehydrated, which you definitely don’t need when moving heavy boxes around. It’ll take up a couple of minutes of your day making sure that you’re drinking the right amount, and what’s that in the grand scheme of things?

Most importantly, it’s crucial that you keep your children entertained or have them looked after while you’re getting all of the jobs done. If they’re old enough to help then get them involved, but otherwise you’ll need to double-up as both a playmate and a parent. Sticking to routines is important in order to establish when you will be able to get certain jobs completed; it’s through this that you will find your perfect plan whilst preparing for your new home together.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
