I Have Been Slack

But I can admit it at least. 

I haven’t blogged in almost a month. but I have been busy (mostly). I moved house & I went to Sydney for a weekend for my cousins wedding. 

My boyfriend and I moved house a couple of weekends ago. Not very far mind you, we are still on the same street, but it doesn’t matter how far you move it’s a tough and tiering process either way. The new place still looks like a bomb has hit it but since we invited friends over for a BBQ on Monday so we have a deadline for when we have to have it looking presentable.

The weekend after we moved we headed off to Sydney for the wedding of one of my cousins. It was a beautiful ‘back yard’ wedding on the water. I had a great time catching up with some of the rellies.

Since then we have been slowly un-packing, making more of a mess in the process, settling in and mostly chilling on the couch watching movies.

So yes I have been slack about blogging but I’m back now and I’ll try and keep up.

A Leap of Faith

‘Just take a leap of faith’ he said. And so I did.

I signed our intention to leave papers before we even filled in our application for another place. The planner in me did not like this at all. Especially as we did it without a plan B. It was get the place we were hoping for (that he had found that day) or frantically look for a place to live.

It paid off. We will be signing the new lease tomorrow and moving next weekend.  And the big plus? It’s just down the road. Literally.

So now we have to get ready to move. Have we started packing? No.  Have we organised anything? Nope. But that’s ok we’ll get there (or so he tells me). I spent the weekend cooking. I made cupcakes, pudding, peppermint patties, pavlova, and cookies which I have been decorating (I haven’t finished yet). It’s been great and its kept me from worrying (as I tend to do against my will) about the move and how unorganised we are for it.

And so next weekend we move. I’m sure it will be as hellish as all moves but I’m not going to worry about it because I have taken a leap of faith. And it paid off. And I have my man to thank for holding my hand while we jump.
