Instead, today I am at work, feeling a little miserable that my plans always seem to end up floating in the wind.
Mr was in Berlin on a stag party a few weeks ago, bored and home alone, I organised a trip and full itinerary road tripping in the South of France. Unfortunately, Mr returned with a hernia* and a workload that could crush Ser Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane. Even with ‘walk the Monaco Grand Prix race circuit’ highlighted in illuminous yellow on my itinerary I couldn’t get him to down tools and head to the airport. After harassing a few other possible travel companions I admitted defeat and cancelled. Self-employment SUCKS!
If you’ve read my blog for a while you might remember last year I booked us a week in Ibiza, Mr messed up his holiday dates and we ended up vacationing in Liverpool, ha! I think I might start a series on here dedicated to him and the things he does that wind me up, is that cruel? Maybe that is a bit mean ..BUT did I tell you guys that he took the day off work for my twin nieces’ birthday, cute right? Except he has NEVER taken a day off for my birthday, EVER, in fact last year my birthday was spent watching him racing! Obviously my family all found this hilarious!
Last week, we found a house, THEE HOUSE, if you have ever been house hunting you’ll know how difficult it is to find one that ticks ALL the boxes. Well we did. It was perfect. It needed quite a bit of work but everything about it was exactly what we were looking for with the added bonus of an ensuite bathroom and a sunroom. The location was smack bang in between both my sisters houses (who live one mile apart), perfect for sharing the hosting duties of Fajita Fridays! The seller wanted a quick sale and with us not having a property to sell we were in a good position to seal the deal. I didn’t totally set my heart on it as I’m used to things not going my way but I might have picked out bathroom tiles and found the perfect light fitting for the sunroom lol but yesterday our dreams were crushed when we were unfortunately outbid. Mr is actually pretty upset about it and I fear he might want to just buy the next house he sees whether it suits us or not! Everyone keeps telling me that it wasn’t to be and we’ll find another one, a better one. I want to lie face down on the floor kicking and screaming ‘BUT I WANT THAT ONE!!!!’ Adulting SUCKS!
This is my 100th post. Instead of just brain spew typing like I usually do, I wanted to write something thought provoking or meaningful, something deep. I wrote a post on religion, or more my relationship with religion/God, it’s still in my drafts but I can’t bring myself to post it. I’m sure a lot of people will relate to it but I’m scared it might offend people. I am one of those people who avoid confrontation at all costs. It’s a strange thing for me not to want to post something personal, I don’t usually have a problem sharing on here, its just a touchy subject one with which everyone has very STRONG opinions and I can’t adult in most situations so I’m not sure how to cope with the possible backlash. Fear SUCKS!
And so my 100th post has become a bit of a moan, which if you knew me personally you would laugh because I rarely moan about anything!
Don’t worry guys I do have some good stuff going on. For my birthday my sister booked us flights to Iceland in November so we are currently planning our trip. Liz I hope your Iceland recaps are coming soon!!
I am back in the gym and loving it! Yet to get back into running but I’m loving busting strength workouts at Fee’s Fitness and have been contemplating checking out Crossfit.
Game of Thrones is back!! I am loving season 7 so far. Let me know what you think if you watch too, who is your favourite GoT character?
Some other things I’m excited about: Finally catching up with my besties, new job, being bridesmaid. I also must find my running mojo soon as I have some races coming up soon…eeek!
*he actually developed the hernia the night before his trip whilst moving furniture for his Mum, but coming home from a stag doo with a hernia sounds much more scandalous lol, don’t you think? Its proving difficult for him to ride his motorbike with it though so I kinda like it… cue evil laugh
How is adulting going for you right now? The good, the bad and the ugly?
Any Iceland recommendations?
Cheer me up lets have some Game of Thrones chat..
Thanks for reading🤗
Have a great day❤️
