My week #14

My oh my it’s been a month and a half since I did one of these! Anyway, catchup time.

We’re settling in nicely to the house as I described in my post earlier this week, Snippets of Home. I want to decorate so badly but with Topher out of work and myself only just beginning my business we have to wait. It’s not like there’s any rush, I’m just impatient!

On the freelancing front, things are going quite well. I’ve secured enough clients to cover my half of the bills which is awesome. Now I just need more so I can have enough money to live on top of that. Working hard to do it though. It’s so nice having my office to go to. I just feel like I’m getting more done! There are still people in my life who are wondering why I haven’t gotten a “real job” yet but I know in the next few months they’ll quieten down. Topher supports me so that’s something!

In terms of outside land, I have been outside in the last few days which is nice. Last weekend Topher and I went to a market with our friend Claire and came home with pie and chocolate. Luckily that was before re-joining Slimming World again. Yes, again. Well we’ve moved now and I’ve picked a morning session for the first time since London and I really have a good feeling about this one. I think I’ll do a separate post about it next week so look out for that.

I’ve been super organised recently and have been getting stuff sorted for the house as well as our upcoming holidays this year. Cats needed a cattery booking and we’ve also scheduled in our engagement shoot (squee!). We’ve also been planning ahead for next year and have decided to scale down our honeymoon again to a much more manageable (both on our time and our bank balances) holiday. Again I’ll do a separate post on that in the near future.

The cats have been their usual mischievous selves. As much as I complain, I have to thank Pickles for waking us up at 6am since we moved. Getting up at a decent time lets me get a good head start on the day. Though I do go back to sleep until 8! And finally the sun is making an appearance after that random bout of snow we had a couple of weeks back so it really feels like Spring now. So excited for summer. Topher calls me his sun-activated flower which is completely true. I just feel so much more alive in the summer.

What’s been making you smile recently?

    That looks like a good bath- Lush?? Great news about the freelancing, sounds like you’re on the right track!

      Thanks! And indeed it was Lush – Big Blue. I got a few bath bombs from my parents at Christmas where I was instructed that I could only use them in my new house! Totally worth the wait 🙂 x
