It's been almost a week already since I had my coronavirus test. It was one of those drive-into-a-tent dealies where people in protective gear have you roll down the window. And then they stick a fucking 6-inch cotton bud up your nose and give it a bit of a spin when they can't go any … Continue reading A needly reunion
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
I'm waiting for my towel to dry from the wash so I can have a shower, but it keeps raining so that might not happen any time soon. Freya had her 11th birthday a couple of days ago! Sadly there can be no FreyaFest '20 because nobody is allowed to come over. We intend … Continue reading Watching a towel dry
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
You were a tiny sausage-shaped angel and I truly miss you. I hope we can meet again one day.
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!
