Here is a post of sorts that I really don’t normally do….a bit of a moan! I like my blog to be a place of upbeat-ness, days out, thrifty finds and what I’ve been up to with Dolly Cool, but for my regular readers who have been with me for the last few years, you may have noticed that since last year my posts have been a few and far between……and there is of course, a reason for this….
And the reason is that we are moving house….or trying too! Last Christmas, Michael and I made a firm decision that we wanted to move. So, we started saving, and every weekend from January until April, we set about getting our house ready to sell. Car booting, days out etc. all went out the window as we de-cluttered, repainted and tided every inch of our home and garden. It was hard work! BUT worth it, as we got an offer on out house in only 9 weeks, (which with the current economic situation, is fantastic!). So far, so good.
And then…..well, the joy of the conveyancing starts and everything grinds to a halt. Without boring you all to death, we are 3 months in, with no end in sight and we have absolutely no idea when/if we will be moving at this point. It really is infuriating!!
So…this is why I haven’t been blogging much this year. 4 months of decluttering, trips to the tip/dump/recycling and tidying – how exciting! And then, we haven’t really been buying anything exciting as we want to wait until we move, and we haven’t been anywhere as we are trying to save money to move with….which all makes for a dull, boring blog!
I’ve been brought up with the saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all” which applies to lots of things, but for me, blogging too. I’d rather not blog much then do it half heartedly, or moan every time I do!
I know in the grand scheme of things, world troubles, economic uncertainty etc. moving house is a miniscule “problem”, but to us at present, it is making us feel crap. I think In Limbo best describes it!!
On the bright side…when/(if!) we move…the house we are buying is a renovation project and we have lots of cool things in mind, which I am excited about doing, and sharing with you on the blog. Please keep your fingers crossed for us that everything starts to progress soon!
Until then, I will leave you with the ‘someecards’ card that I made myself, and which is stuck on the bottom of my computer screen to make me laugh!
