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!
I really don't know how it's come to this but I'm pretty sure the landlords and/or estate agents are trying to force us out. I can't remember how much detail I went into when the landlords came to visit us in December, but basically, they were pretty annoyed that the estate agents lied to … Continue reading No more renting
So obviously we've had no central heating for about a week now (it might be a week today actually but I'm not sure). Originally we were told it would be sorted by Saturday last week, this did not happen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTncKsqqltk The problem was some sort of valve that needed replacing because it had … Continue reading Our engineer hates us and I don’t know why
As always happens at the most inopportune of times, our central heating has packed up. Of course, it's winter, and it's really fucking cold. It turns out the problem is with a particular valve, the boiler would apparently fire up for a second when the boiler man held the valve down into a pipe, but … Continue reading Boil(er)ing point
Maybe life would be easier if I was of those people who didn't have feelings about anything.
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
We were prepared for the possibility of getting a flight to Israel at 5 in the morning. Thankfully that didn't happen. Will went to bed after a weird date night, I stayed up cleaning because the landlords were due to inspect us in the morning, and I had the election broadcast on the TV … Continue reading I guess we’re staying for now
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
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?
