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?
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
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
