This Week I Have Been Mostly….

this week i have been mostly

It’s been a while since I posted a life update, mainly because I have had so much stuff in ‘pending’ that I haven’t really been able to talk about.

But in the last few weeks we have started packing up our house. We’re moving!

A while back I posted some tweets on twitter, as we were trying to decide between two houses (large house, not great area OR smaller house, nice area) We decided to go for the latter, and ever since we’ve been waiting on the chain. It’s been a struggle and frustrating, but things have started to move along, and after a long wait we’re looking at an early September move.


And once that’s all done, I can finally start looking forward to the other amazing thing happening this year, which is our return to Orlando! In October we’ll be flying out to stay with friends for a week of Florida sunshine and a teeny bit of Disney magic (more of that in a later post).


Over the last few weeks, apart from packing, we’ve been hunkering down and trying not to spend any money or do anything too extravagant. We started to watch Breaking Bad on Netflix and we’re almost at the end. The final season has been the most interesting so far, but I’ve almost given up on it a couple of times. It’s just not been as amazing as people have made out.

I also celebrated my 34th birthday, and spent the day chilling out and pottering on odd jobs. It’s nice to spend it low-key some times. Maybe I’ll do something exciting next year for my 35th. But I like the quiet and calm, especially ahead of a big house move!

On the social media side of things, I was excited to see I’d hit 1k followers on Twitter, and also gained a few YouTube subscribers since my last video went live. I’m hoping to begin posting those regularly again once I’ve got my office set up in the new house. I also alluded to a YouTube project I wanted to give a go, on twitter, AGES ago – I still intend on doing that. So if you showed interest I’ll be in contact with you once I feel ready to begin.

So that’s what I’ve been up to the last few weeks; not much to tell! But I’ll be sharing things as they happen (and whilst I have internet!) and you’ll be able to take this exciting journey with me!

This May Not Have Been What You Expected

It’s been lovely to see a couple of the people who I nominated for the Sunshine Award post their answers on their blogs! If I nominated you but you don’t want to go through the rigmarole of a blog post please feel free to answer the questions in a comment on that blog post if you still want to answer them 🙂

Of course, as I mentioned some fairly dodgy search terms that brought people to my blog, in my last post, now people are searching those terms and coming straight to my blog…… So, Hi, and I’m sorry this wasn’t what you were after….. I hope you find what you were looking for regarding post menopausal bleeding or Beyoncé’s camel toe. Good luck with that! I really didn’t think that through did I?

And there’s good news, guys! We exchanged contracts on our house purchase and will be moving in at the end of next week! We’re beside ourselves with happiness. Now I have to form an opinion on paint colours and soft furnishings…… We will most likely be without internet for some time in the in-between stage so if I go dark it’s only because of lack of tech…. oh and there’s a good chance my laptop won’t survive the move because it’s on its last legs so who knows. I have my phone still!

Well, I guess I should start packing!
