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
Not a lot of especially interesting stuff happened in the past week, but it was a bit of a weird one anyway. Also for some reason, in the post before last, photos that were uploaded in the portrait orientation, became landscape after I published the post. I don't know how to sort that out, they … Continue reading The mediocre week
It must have been nearly a month since I did this, perhaps because I've spent more time either doing house things or fruitlessly trying to gain energy via napping. This past week I had a triple-whammy of pain in the form of a 10/10 migraine complete with vomiting and diarrhoea, a period, and an alarmingly … Continue reading I’m not very good at blogging
