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.

When I first started writing a blog, I didn’t actually realise I was writing a blog. I was an avid user of Piczo at the time, and I mainly used my site to showcase my “graphic design” skills.

But then one day I added a text box to the home page of my Piczo site, typed out the date, and then proceeded to write about what I had got up to that particular day. In fact I probably wrote about going to see The Dark Knight at the cinema because, let’s face it, that’s all I did in the summer of 2008. This was my very first blog post, even if I didn’t know it at the time.
