Week in Pictures #36


This week we packed our bags and went on a much MUCH needed getaway to Keldy Forest. 

We actually booked it last year, way before moving house stress was even an issue in our lives and I don't think we appreciated just how good the timing of it would be until it came around. In fact I'd totally forgotten we'd booked it until a week ago, I could've wept with happiness when I remembered!

It did us all good to be away from school runs and noisy house renovations for the week I think and the weather was beaut which made it all the more better.

So thanks for having us back to your beautiful forest Forest Holidays, it's been a blast. Even if it does suck adjusting back to reality!

Our Upstairs House Plans and Before photos


We're coming to the end of May and I've hit a new low in trying to predict when the heck this house will be ready.

Honestly, I know all people in the middle of a house move say this but we are never moving house again. 

Ever.

For as long as we live.

A few months ago I talked about our plans for downstairs and so here are our plans for the rest.

Week in Pictures #33


Today's been one of those weeks where you've got to laugh otherwise you wouldn't stop crying.
 You know those ones?

I had my driving test at the start of the week and it went so badly its left me feeling kinda traumatised. I have loads of excuses I could use for it - there was torrential rain for a start, my car chose to mist up as soon as we set off and then proceeded to take a ridiculous amount of time to demist and then the biggy - that fact that my instructor was basically Claude from The Apprentice's evil twin who both shouted at me and quite literally huffed and puffed through out the whole test which was SO humiliating/off-putting that I ended the test early and in tears. 

If I'm being totally honest with myself, I was so panicky before hand that I did the worst driving I think I've ever done and I reckon I probably would have driven just as badly even without all the above factors. But still, the whole thing ended up being something I'd just rather throw back to the deepest recesses of my mind and forget about entirely.

Anxietys a bitch isn't it?
