A number of my books - A Friend for Rachel, The Octave of Angels, My Guinea Pig is Innocent - have involved families moving house and a child having to cope with settling into a new place. I didn't plan it that way, that's just how it turned out.
It goes with Tony's work that we've moved house fairly frequently, and that's been hard for the kids. But today was a very happy story of a new house. Lovely Older Son and Lady Sunshine received the keys to the house they'll be renting, and the three of us went there to say hello to it.
It's a sunny little house, full of light, in a village in a beautiful part of Yorkshire. It looks as if it's just been waiting for them. A happy house.
