A full nest

This weekend is unusual in that we have both chicks in the nest at the same time.  Son chick is home from uni for a couple of weeks and daughter chick is home too.  Not for long though!  She will be moving into a flat with her boyfriend on Monday and our house is becoming a depositary for boxes, clothes and flat pack furniture – you should see the state of our landing and garage!  I’ve been looking for a suitable ‘new home’ card for them but couldn’t find anything that I liked until the husband looked at me in a bemused fashion and said “but surely you’ll be making them one”.  Hmmm …. maybe he has something there.  So this morning I got to grips with card and paper and glue and glitter and came up with this

 P1020381 P1020382

The quote inside says ‘It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home’ which is very true.   I suspect that Monday will be pretty chaotic,  but very exciting for them both.  I also suspect that our house will feel pretty empty by the time we have unloaded everything and returned home!

I'm wishing them all the best in their new home too. Wow, doesn't it take you back to moving into your first house together? We had no heat, a hole in the roof and a big crack in the front door, but we loved it.
