Based on the recent houseplan and scrapbooking project, a bungalow variant. It's all on one floor, has one bedroom and a small guest/child room. Only 2 reception rooms instead of the 3rd gaming room, and no integrated garage or shed. So obviously, this house comes with the idea of having no children or only … Continue reading A bungalow concept
Our allies, the Kurds, are in a bad spot right now, having been left to die against the Turkish by America's bizarre president. I hope Israel will do something but I'm not sure what we can do. Israel can't even mention the Armenian genocide without risking war with Turkey. A physical intervention would not go … Continue reading Our allies
Recently I've felt like there's not enough space in my head. When my injections wear off I end up with constant background migraines which cause a lot of head burning, and an intense swelling feeling, along with nausea and visual disturbances, even if I'm not crying and vomiting like I would be during a main … Continue reading Headspace
There's been a thing on the social medias recently where people put images of four favourite things in a category (usually games/ films). I decided to put mine together in Photoshop Elements purely because I don't have much else to do as I'm a bit ill at the moment. That's it really.
I went and did a thing that I didn't initially expect to do. I bought woodlice for Joop's tank. I can already hear people wondering how mad I've gone, but there is a reason for it. They work as so-called "vivarium custodians" and wander around eating old food, poo, and generally keeping the soil in … Continue reading I got woodlice
So the other day I had the idea for noting down what I want in a house, in my bullet journal. And then I was like, I'm not going to draw a plan this time, I'll just give my notes to a professional architect one day if we don't buy the house we're currently in. … Continue reading I’m mad about houses
I'm very focused towards Halloween at the moment; it's always such a big deal for us and now it's our wedding anniversary too. But it's made me realise that the end of the year has already crept up on us. It'll be my birthday soon, the big 3-0, and I'm so stressed about doing … Continue reading What do I want for 2020?
We finally had our housewarming! And it was also Will's birthday party, because his birthday was that week, and it was the only time Ben could come down for ages, so we kind of had to scoop everything into one day. I must confess to not having unpacked and organised everything I wanted to, in … Continue reading House warmed!
I hope I'll be able to come up with some more interesting post titles soon, but here are some recent things. There's still a fair bit of unpacking to do, and the pressure is really on because it's almost time for Will's birthday party. I thought having a deadline would make me work faster in … Continue reading General house shenanigans
Leaving our old house was weirdly emotional. I think it's because we were there for a few years. We built up a lot of memories in all the rooms. It's also the last time it was just Will, me, and the dog (and, briefly, a snail!). I love living in the group house but there … Continue reading Saying goodbye
