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
I like to have ambitions for the future, sometimes very intricate ones. I realised that we're three decades old and we need to have a solid plan for how we're actually going to get to our future, instead of just having ideas about it. I came up with this lil' infographic. Unless we … Continue reading Current life plans
Believe it or not, my floorplanning obsession did not actually start with houses. While I have always wanted to build my own house, and I was stupidly small when I started scribbling designs, my first floorplan was actually a zoo! I did it on the back of a spare roll of lino and it was … Continue reading I’d love to run a zoo
On Halloween we went down to the restaurant where we had our wedding reception exactly a year prior, and had a very nice dinner. There's always something tangible in the air on the 31st itself. We had to avoid the motorway due to issues with the car, so we drove through so many beautiful … Continue reading Married 1 year!
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
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
Since I got my new phone, WordPress for some reason sorts my photos into a totally random order; adding them to a post chronologically is effort I don't want to expend right now, so please enjoy this medley of photos from assorted days. Here's some stuff from before the move. I … Continue reading Pet and house spam
