Life update

A teaser of the new colour in our lounge

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments you've left on my previous couple of blog posts. I don't think you'll ever know just how much that has meant to me, so thank you :)

In my post from the other day you might remember me saying that life has been a bit chaotic? Well I thought I'd give you a little update on what we've been busy with!

In an effort to get 1 room (the lounge) done in the new house by Christmas, we realised that for us to paint it would take months - just managing to maybe get 1hr a night on it after Squidge goes to bed. Bear in mind, we have bare plaster walls and woodwork, so it all needed priming/undercoats etc. So we decided to hire a painter and decorator. Oh my god was that a good idea! After having a few quotes, we picked a guy who seemed decent and for a decent price.

He did an amazing job, we couldn't be happier! Now we have phase 2 - ripping up the old and damaged laminate flooring and getting carpet put in. The carpet guy is popping over tomorrow, we'll make our pick and hopefully actually get it done next week. But that also means at some point in an evening, we have to try and rip up the laminate that's already there... yeah... I'll do a full post about it once the room is completely finished :) 

We've also bought a piano which is being delivered soon, which means we need to clear all the boxes of books that don't have a home so we can make room for it - where all this stuff is going to go, I've no idea.

We've also been trying to hunt down curtains and other bits and bobs, as well as getting some repairs done on our car and new tyres.  Feels like we haven't stopped for ages.

Squidge is coming along great - his speech is constantly improving, we can start to have little conversations with him now, it's great! All in all he's such a good little boy, it's the little things he does, like calling for us when he's in bed, instead of constantly running out of his room :) I'll do a proper Squidge update in a couple months.

Life is pretty good - I still have a gazillion ailments - bad back, pinched nerve in my back, plantar fasciitis in my right foot, bad achilles tendon in my left foot, and achy shoulders. But other than that I'm fine :) Work is good too, I'm getting to do little bits of illustration which is brilliant, keeps me very happy :) 

Anyway, this post was a lot longer than I intended! That's our little update :) 


  1. Sounds like things are coming along nicely! Love pianos in the home, they add such a lovely touch. I always wished we had a piano in our house. All this decorating and shopping can;t be good for your back! Take care x

    1. Yeah bit by bit they're getting there :) Pianos are just lovely in a home, I'm so excited for it to arrive on Saturday! Ha it's not! Has to be done though :)

  2. Sounds like it's starting to come along. How exciting about the piano. Would love one in our house but we don't have the room. Glad work is going well x
