We’re officially in the new house!

The last few weeks have been completely crazy. The day after we picked up the keys (i.e. the day after I shared my last blog post) we started decorating the new house, and we spent the next two weeks working our arses off.

I’ve never been so tired in my life. I was working 7 and a half hours a day at my job, and then going home just to work even harder, painting the new house and packing up the old one. My entire body ached, and as I didn’t have time to work out, my hip pain became unbearable. This resulted in a trip to the doctors to get some stronger painkillers.

We bought a house!

I’ve been keeping a big of a secret from you guy, but today I can finally share it with you…

We bought a house!

I feel like this might explain a lot; particularly why I’ve not been so active on my blog and on social media this year.

I decided to keep it on the low down because I was so nervous about the whole house buying process as it was all very new to us. I guess I didn’t want to jinx it, or get my hopes up unnecessarily. So I decided to keep it a secret and not talk about it online.

Let’s me take you back to last weekend, which I have to say was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time.

We woke up to beautiful weather on Saturday morning, so Tyrone and I decided to tackle the garden. The lawn needed mowing and the flower beds needed de-weeding. Just picture me in a playsuit, wellies and gardening gloves. Attractive.

But despite the heat and a few massive spiders hiding under the barbecue and in the shed, we survived.
