Vlogging – its easy right? Just come up with a topic, slap on some lipstick (first fail) and chat away like you would with your friends.

No. No. No.

Vlogging is horrendous, its an ordeal. Vlogging has seriously stressed me out. I’ve been carrying this video around in my imaginary worry handbag for the best part of ten days.

Shall I? Shan’t I? What even is the point of this video? Who even needs tips on moving house? Why does the sound get weird? Is it illegal to swear on YouTube?  Can you tell I’m drunk by the end of it?

But then I thought you know what? This crap took two hours to record, it took two hours to edit -to add the shit title screens and the music. I then spent the best part of an hour figuring out how the hell to upload the damn thing to YouTube. So I’m sorry but I’m going to make you watch it because this ordeal nearly killed me. And it will probably kill you too, from boredom.

Oh do enjoy.

    Haha this is brilliant! You are so funny 🙂 I thought this was very useful – we moved last year when Emma was 3 months old and I took a trip to London & OH did it all. I don’t even feel bad about that! Don’t stop v-logging, I want to see another xx

    Way to go – with your Vee-logging! I felt like I was sitting in your lounge and could have been having a cup of tea and a garibaldi. You are on it with the week off work and the clear out of superfluous crap. Your gag reel was fab – loved that! I always love the out takes at the end of a movie. A Gag reel should be obligatory with all Vee-loggs. You have to keep doing them! x #stayclassymama

    I think we owned 10 times more crap than we needed, we moved 10 weeks ago, still have some stuff in the garage unpacked oops. But we downsized so we had to give away, sell and hire a huge skip to throw stuff out! I agree don’t kick the washer it is so tough and heavy! And my number one rule would be get your kids out of the house, even at 12, 9 and 6 they drive you nuts with the stress of moving. Loved the gag reel at the end lol. #stayclassy

    I love you for this! I didn’t know you before, but now I know that you are a funny, thoughtful, lovely individual, who doesn’t take herself too seriously. Carry on Vlogging! Your doubts are unfounded. There are so many things I love about it, and your written intro is brill *two thumbs up :)*

    As I said on Youtube….I Just love this. I don’t even think you need to do tips on anything. Just get drunk and film it again. 🙂 In true classy mama fashion! #StayClassyMama

    I am howling, this is amazing. DO MORE!! We bribe people with crates of lager in my family too, don’t worry. Also, I enjoyed the thumbs up. ‘If you think you can move in 24 hours you are completely fucking deluded’ – best line ever. Can’t beat a gag reel too! #stayclassymama

    ‘Have a little cry’ – excellent advice. Moving house with a baby is the WORST – we moved to Glasgow when the Popple was 4 months old, and it wouldn’t have been possible if my mum hadn’t come to help out. We’re hoping to move again soon – and I have a feeling it will be worse now that she’s a toddler because she’ll be into EVERYTHING.

    I don’t think I have the patience for all this vlogging filming/editing/uploading nonsense, so I’m impressed with your efforts. 🙂

    I love the music choices. And the cat part is really funny. And these are actually really good tips for moving house. I wasn’t prepared for the food situation when we first moved, it’s good to warn people. Moving is horrible, I really feel for you, so good luck with it. And also good luck with the future Vee-logs. *Thumbs up* #StayClassyMama

    I eat cheese and Chinese even when not moving house! It’s brill, well done! P.S I moved house from Australia to the UK with a 7-month-old baby and a dog. That was seriously hard work! #stayclassymama

    V funny! And all good top tips. Kids and moving house do not mix, neither does trying to cook a chicken with half a kitchen. You’re a natural V – Logger and you seemed more natural as it went on – was that to do with the wine?? 😉
    It is TERRIFYING putting a V -Log out, I agree. We’ve done 2 and I had sleepless nights and cold sweats over both of them. There’s that little voice that says ‘What do you think you’re doing?’ ‘Who’s going to be interested in THAT?’ ‘You loser, do something useful with your time!!’
    Pah! Just listen to your viewers – brilliant xx #stayclassymama

    Well, I think you were fab. Absolutely hilarious so I think you should carry on vlogging for sure. Also great tips. I had to move house and country with kids! Totally agree with getting rid of the kids and all your crap. Somehow I ended up packing a bag of bags when I moved… I blame the kids. Should have got rid of them for longer 🙂 #stayclassymama

    HAHA I love this…get rid of your children…but not permanently..this is hilariously funny and you rock the video transitions it looks totally pro! I’m slightly cringe worthy about Leo and I on ours now but I have a five year old to blame if it is shit! #stayclassymama

    I thought this was great, the natural way you have with the camera without being showy is really cool and I loved the way that you did appear to get a bit tiddly as the video went on and even more relaxed in front of the camera. Keep doing more!!

    Haha – well done! I couldn’t even contemplate vlogging – I’d be awful! Keep it up! As for moving house with young kids, yes trying to do that currently. &, due to circumstances I won’t go into, it will now be even more stressful & complicated than it was going to be before! Good luck with your move! #stayclassymama
