Hi all! I’m sorry for my absence – sorting out our Internet connection is taking longer than expected – I hope to be back next Wednesday at the latest!
Good morning! I’m sorry for my absence this week. I was trying so hard not to get caught up in the whole ‘we’re selling our house’ stress, but it happened anyway! The good news is though, we have a buyer. It happened so fast (on the first viewing), and so it’s been a whirlwind of activity over the last few days. Not least because we haven’t even thought about finding somewhere to live yet!!
Of course so many things can go wrong between now and the day we exchange contracts – hopefully it won’t – so at the moment we’re just concentrating on family stuff (a wedding and a birthday celebration) + getting organised for our trip to Portugal. Once we’re back home, if everything is still ok with the sale, then we’ll start looking for a new place to live. Yikes!
I’ll talk about it a lot more in my de-cluttering post tomorrow (+ in a separate post next week), but I have organised my wardrobe this week. A few items needed editing out + the actual wardrobe needed a clean (dust etc). It felt good to get it done.
Ok. I think that’s it for today. I need to pop into town to drop some paperwork off + buy a few groceries (we have extra people for dinner tonight), and then hopefully I can catch up with all your blogs.
Have a lovely day
Good morning! If you celebrate it, then I hope that you had a safe and peaceful Christmas. We spent Christmas Day at home with the children (and partners), and then traveled to spend the day with other family members yesterday. This morning I feel very grateful.
I’ll be spending the next few days, cleaning the house, using up all the leftovers and generally getting ready for 2014.
New Year is my favourite time of the year and I can’t wait to keep up the attack on our financial goals.
Back tomorrow with a budget for January.
