As another month draws to a close (and the first quarter…eek!) it’s time to cast a look back and etch those memories on this little space online.
Life With…The House
We literally moved the essentials into our new kitchen/family room and got a bit too comfy…here we are a month later and we have done absolutely nothing! We still have the same ‘to do’ list and still fighting builders dust (as you can see!)
Ok, so I’m being a bit harsh on myself…I have been pinning and I have an inspiration board. It does feel like we are at the bottom of a mountain though and I’m not sure of the route up…I just don’t know where to start! I’ve been letting Hubs take the reigns quite a bit on this one, as I can’t seem to face it. We will get there though and it will be epic!
Oh we have had one not so epic discovery..that the redwood mantle is actually built into the house! Yes, that’s right…the person who gutted the house back in 2007 fit the mantle piece and then rested the wall supports on top of it….great! Nothing’s never easy though, right?!
Life With …The Family
This month marked MM’s half birthday (if you count by weeks…I never know!) I’m stunned at how quickly time is whizzing past this time.
She is due to start nursery in May and although we no longer need full time childcare, having her go one day a week will give me a chance to up my game blog and freelance wise (as I have news there!) After 3 months of blog tumbleweed I actually had a great opportunity come my way locally with a media agency. I’ll be doing some freelancing with them for 3 months and if all goes well…we’ll take it from there. It’s a small team, who all work from home (which is fantastic for childcare), so opportunities don’t get much better than this!
I’m also led to believe we should hear about Munch’s school application by the end of March. Rumour has it, this year’s intake has been quite small so that goes in our favour.
Well that’s us for another month…Here’s to sunnier weather!
