Moving and different attitudes to bad news

Yesterday we began moving stuff into our new place. It was an emotional day, lots of excitement, but lots of strangeness, as I wonder again, will THIS be the house that finally has a babies room.

Yesterday when some friends came to move our stuff, my SIL and I went our for coffee. I had decided to tell both SILs ou
R situation more in detail, so that their would be less pressure to behave normally with baby stuff and baby announcement. Her reaction was ironically the same as Earl's Mum. She was very 'of course it will happen'. She told me of friends who gave up trying, only to get pregnant the next month. She was sure that if we started adopting, we would get pregnant right away. She was sympathetic and lovely and totally naive!

It was so different with my BFF. We talked again yesterday. She really gets it. Though I have to say, it is still tough. We have inherited a desk from them, since there study gets to be a babies room. I will never like our new desk. We are the ones who should have a babies room. Oh Thumper, why didn't you stay!

I won't have Internet at first in our new place, so I might be off grid for a while.
Love Lady Grey


  1. I'm so hopeful that you get a baby room soon. This house hopefully will be the place. Thinking of you. xoxoxoxo

  2. Praying you have to give that darn desk away to make room for your baby room!!!!!! Hope all goes well w/ setting up the new place!!!
