This post is literally just about The Sims. Not even current Sims, but The Sims 3, a game I refuse to move on from because it has horses and controllable pets. And this is anticlimactic, but, I already know I'm going to change this house. When I had some brain power at a ridiculous hour … Continue reading A Sims house quandary
Freya had some sort of cerebral event recently. I'll paste what I said to Kadek at the time because it pretty much covers the whole thing. "Vet says it's not worth worrying about but that's mainly because they can't tell us anything about it unless we get an episode on video. I cried all night … Continue reading We need air conditioners
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
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 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
In the morning we watched a film called 3-Headed Shark Attack because it was on telly and it was, uh, bad. Here are some more photos from recent times. https://www.instagram.com/p/B4Cmvfzhmkm/ Well it's nice that the party is out the way and I can decompress a bit. I drank enough … Continue reading Celebrating our first year of marriage!
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
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
