There’s some­thing about the stress of a house move that throws peo­ple into sur­vival mode. Or, put an­other way, you live as though you’re in a hol­i­day home for the first week or so – pos­si­bly be­cause you feel like a tourist in your new neigh­bour­hood. On the first two days of the move, treat your­self to a pub lunch or nice break­fast in your new area, but don’t make a last­ing habit of it. Get back to the reg­u­lar rou­tine of cook­ing as soon as, say, you’ve found the saucepans.
