Life Update; Where I’ve Been Hiding
Some of you may, or may not, have noticed a mini, impromptu hiatus on the blog, so I thought it would be worth sharing a little life update on what I’ve been doing and where I’ve been hiding.
Most importantly, and time consuming, the beard and I bought a house.
My life for the past three weeks has been get up, gym, drive to work, work, drive home, and there is constantly something that needs to be done before you get the chance to sit down, whether it’s decorate, cleaning, tidying up – there is always bits to do.
It’s not just decorating and sorting the house out, it’s also things like having people round, showing the house off, and still trying to fit in a bit of ‘me’ time. Every weekend since we’ve moved in we’ve had something planned and, not only does it make time fly, it also makes you feel like you haven’t had any time to relax. I have loved having people over to our house, and being able to call it that makes me so happy, but finding a decent amount of time to relax and enjoying being in the house is hard.
I’m also not sleeping well. This is the hardest thing for me as I lose the will to live when I don’t sleep. I’m not even being dramatic when I say I haven’t had one solid night’s sleep in the house yet. New bed, new pillows, new house- it’s all taking some getting used to.
I’m not complaining, I considered the beard and I to be in a very lucky position to be on the mortgage ladder, but it’s been a hard slog. We have both had to save for this money ourselves, not being given it or bought by others. It’s been hard, but it’s been worth it to say that we now own our own property.
Hopefully, now we’ve been in for a little while, things on the blog some presume as normal, but please bear with if I disappear every now and again.
Thanks for reading,
