2020 Week 42 Plants & Shoes.

This post is all pictures 🙂 Over the past few weeks, I took loads of pictures on a couple of different outings. One was Mr Notebook taking me for a drive to see the gardens at his workplace. Some of the gardens are so incredible and I got so many great ideas for my own…

2020 Week 41 Paper work.

This week we went and signed some more documents at the settlement agents office. We were informed that everyone is happy to move settlement forward to the 22nd of October, rather than the 30th. This is good because we can start moving items up to the new house. It also means I need to keep…

2020 Week 40 Our house!

It’s official our finance has been formally approved and we will soon be the owner’s of our own home!!! I am so happy and excited. The kids are ecstatic and Mr Notebook and I, along with my Mum are all sharing ideas about all of the things we can do around the place. The kids…

2020 Week 39 The Unknown

My whole week, since I last wrote, has been punctuated by things about the house we saw. Firstly, since viewing the house and still loving it, we put in an offer and it was accepted. I realise you know this from my last post. Things have moved quite quickly since then. There was quite a…

2020 Week 38 I lost a week!

I’m writing this post late, a week late in fact. I forgot to write. I don’t know why. Anyway I wanted to do a post for week 38 for continuity sake. On Sunday we went out to meet up with family for lunch at a winery called Old Coast Road Brewery. I forgot to take…

2020 Week 37 Flowers & Houses

I have been looking at houses for quite awhile. Dreaming of buying our own little patch. Up until. now, my searching has just been online. Sometimes I would even look at homes in other countries. Last weekend we went to inspect a house. It was fun! I liked the house but it didn’t give me…

2020 Week 36 Father’s Day

I didn’t have a great a father. I didn’t even have a good father. I’m not alone in this I know. I was not lucky enough to have a good male role model throughout my childhood either. I’m not sad about it. It’s just the way it was. I had an abundance of love from…

2020 Week 35 Not the greatest

I’ve not been feeling my best on and off lately so I have been to my GP and back again for results. The results warrant more testing which I’m in the midst of getting done. I was flying along so well there for a while 🙂 Anyway I’m on to it and being proactive. My…

2020 Week 34 Dreams and stars…

This morning I listened to music while I was getting ready for the day and for a while after that too. We often have music in our house 🙂 My daughter sings and plays her ukulele and it’s the sweetest thing to hear her late in the evening when the house is quiet. It’s soothing…

2020 Week 33 Contentment

This is a gratitude post. I am fortunate to have all my loved ones safe, happy and healthy, together and under one roof. All of my children are here and my heart is full. I am lucky enough that Mr Notebook is home every day after work and has the weekends free. My eldest son…
