The past week has been particularly busy, I had hoped to post on Sunday but to be perfectly honest, laying on the sofa and doing nothing was too hard to take myself away from!
The new chapter refers to saying goodbye to my family home. It’s times like this when I really appreciate how much of a grounded and stable upbringing I had and I really hope I can give my family when I have one of my own.
In my previous post I mentioned that my husband and I were renovating our period home, amazing experience, but very tiring. We finally made some progress and I no longer have a stair case in my dining room or machines in the house… they have moved to the rightful place in the workshop! This gives me great hope that the stairs may actually be finished and fitted soon 🙂 I live in hope! I will update with a photo of the before and after once it’s in and decorated.
I have been thinking a lot about career at the moment, what to do for the best considering family and finances. Like many of you out there, I am quite a career women, and also can not wait to have a family of my own. It’s so hard to know when it’s the right time, and as many say, particularly parents, there never is a right time. We’ve delayed it and delayed it and now we have the house, the jobs, getting back on our feet financially, but something inside me keeps wondering if it’s still the right time… maybe it’s just cold feet. We need to dive right in! I am a bit of a control freak, so I think I worry that by taking time off work to start a family will make me too worried about finances, I need to just LET IT GO! My husband is a fantastic support and has never let me down!
Speaking of husbands, I am looking forward to a husband free weekend in the house to myself… the sad thing is I will probably spend it cleaning and organising things. I need to make the most of a quiet home… maybe have my very own little dance party inspired by the one and only Greys Anatomy! Any other Grey’s lovers out there?! 🙂 That show is amazing! The day that stops filming will be a sad day! Slightly obsessed, and Scandal of course!
Sometimes I really wish I could relive my 20 something years where I was young and care free…. with the important people I have in my life now. Growing up and having responsibility isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be!
On a positive note, 2018 summer holiday is BOOKED!! I seriously hope that the house is completed by then so we can really let loose!
Have a great week people!
