Hey it's ya girl Letti and I'm still not sleeping at correct hours. I might be in a bit of a manic period where I have 5 million ideas a minute. So there's this housing development I've got my eye on. It hasn't actually got planning permission yet but I'm hoping it goes through because … Continue reading Some insomniac ramblings about a house
I suppose we've been quite busy recently. Biggest news is no doubt that I did my first Twitch stream! Painfully missed my usual summer TR marathons with people so decided to finally start streaming and at least be able to talk to them that way. Might try and get Discord working next time so we … Continue reading The 30 degree night
I feel like I've been gone for ages. A lot of life happened, we finally found a place to live, the virus pandemic got worse, there was a bit of a delay before we could move in, but we eventually managed it. We were initially told we wouldn't have internet until June, because nobody was … Continue reading We moved house again
We finally bought a second-hand car after my MIL's one packed up a while ago. I was going a bit spare not being able to leave the house for ages, so it came just in time. I had too much fun getting in there and going over everything with a disinfectant wipe. I have … Continue reading We have a car again!
This month has been very busy and exhausting. We've also all been a bit ill in a different way. I had a fever and some mad confusion, Will got a sore throat, my sister-in-law was sick and it looks like my mother-in-law might have got C. diff from work! So really not a smooth time … Continue reading Christmas catch-up
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
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
Almost three weeks by the time I'm actually writing this. It's fun being married. I know not a lot actually changes day to day, but there's a weird undercurrent of contentment. As I said before, we love all our presents, but the biggest news is probably that we have a dishwasher! It's not a cure-all … Continue reading Two weeks married!
Eight years ago, it was 2010 and I met Will. We started dating after 2 days, moved in together after 2 weeks, and into a flat of our own after 2 months. I was hoping we'd continue the pattern and get married in 2 years, but life got in the way. It turned out we … Continue reading We got married!
A few ridiculously slapstick things that have happened recently: I was in the entrance area by our front door, cleaning. I turned around, and saw Jodi through the glass. I screamed in surprise. While screaming, my jeans fell down around my ankles. (I have since bought a belt.) While trying to operate the door to … Continue reading Slapstick
