And like that, it was November! This year has seriously flown by. I feel like as I’m getting older (gah) life isn’t slowing down at all. In fact, I can still remember exactly how I celebrated Christmas last year. Every single moment of it. If time wants to slow down a little I’d really appreciate it.
Happy Birthday BUA! If you’re a blogger, I’m sure you’d know who Bloggers United Australia are, but if you don’t I’ll quickly fill you in. BUA is a online blogging community for every kind of blogger. A place to connect, make friendships, ask questions, help people out. It’s great!
And like that, it’s already February! I have a feeling this year will speed by like last year did. Insert sad face Emoji. I know time flies when you’re having fun, but man, it’s flying.
I’m writing this update from our new home friends. If you read my last life update my E was on the hunt for a new place, and here we are six weeks later in our “forever home”. What a whirlwind that was. More house stuff in a moment, but how have you all been lately? What is new? How beautiful is the sunshine? I’ve been pretty damn happy. A change is as good as a holiday, and being in our own home really is better than a holiday. E’s become an instant DIY queen. I don’t think I could count the amount of times we’ve visited Bunnings in the last couple of weeks. I even went alone to pick up a few things E had forgotten. Can I just say something – I can’t stand anything DIY (unless it’s beauty or jewellery making), building or handy man-ing. I do enjoy interior decorating and shopping for home wares, but that is as far as it goes on my end. E’s a machine though, we’ve only been …
Hello! I feel like I haven’t posted a life update in a while! I guess I was too busy out and about doing things so lots to update you on. First things first… Winter is over! Weeeee! This makes me SO excited as I’ve already noticed the days are getting longer, the air is fresher and I’ve definitely had more of a spring in my step (see what I did there, haha). Pretty soon it’ll be time to pack away the jeans and coats, but on the note of packing our entire house will be packed up soon because my E is looking to buy a house! Woop woop. As draining as house hunting has been over the past few months we’ve found a few gems worth considering so guaranteed our lives will be in boxes in the near future. Watch this space! I can’t wait to get into a space where we can put up a picture frame without having to inform a land lord, we can have a puppy and no more rent …
If you didn’t know, E and I live in a teeny tiny one bedroom apartment. So small that majority of our furniture lives all over the district, stored with different family members. It’s perfect for us because it is in prime location, we have river views from the driveway and the rent is quite low. Whilst there are so many perks to living “compact” we don’t have a second bedroom to use as an office so ALL of my blogging is completed on the couch, in my bed or wherever I’m sitting when inspiration strikes. But this weekend E and I worked out we had the room in our bedroom for a desk, and you have no idea how ecstatic that made me. I was finally going to have my own blogging corner! I’m pretty easy to please!
How has your fortnight been? The world has had a bit of an interesting one, but let us focus on the positives.
What a manic fortnight! Since receiving my gorgeous EcoSport Titanium on loan from Ford and Kidspot I’ve been all over the shop.
I learnt something about myself this week; even when I’m run down, exhausted and sick, I can’t sit still. To the point of being bed ridden and not being able to relax, pushing myself to try and finish a book, write a blog post and even attempt to bake a cake (um gross). I need to dedicate more time to nothing or I’m going to be grey by next year.
