Hello. Just a little note to explain my temporary absence from this space.
Last Sunday evening my Dad passed away peacefully in his sleep. He was 84 and after the last few years of deteriorating health, it is a blessing that he went this way. The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity and sadness, and of course blogging has been the last thing on my mind, but I will be back very soon. I hope you are all keeping well ♥
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
