And So...

Life can be a bit of a bugger sometimes can't it.
Well that's how it's been around these parts lately.
Last Tuesday our neighbour accepted a new offer on the house
And so dreams have been dashed.
A heavily pregnant daughter has been consoled.
I am without a doubt absolutely exhausted...
And not one mince pie even made yet!
We can half-heartedly hope
That the new sale will fall through...
After all our daughters' did
But if it doesn't daughter and son in law have decided
To install themselves a wood-burner in their current home.
And breathe!
This week I have time off from work.
In theory this will mean time for me to catch up on paperwork...
In reality today has largely been spent in a sleep deprived stupor...
A storm raged around us last night
Things crashed and banged...
And Heidi was scared...
I ended up on the 3 in the morning...
Then just past seven hubby came down and made me get up
We were taking our upstairs doors to be dipped and stripped.
Oh joy!
Tomorrow is Henry day...with the dentist thrown in for good measure.
Wednesday is get a tree morning...
Followed by a Henry afternoon...
And from Thursday onwards we have family time planned.
I need to find pins to pin the smile to my face...
Only joking!
One day I promise I will get the up to date photos uploaded
And share a few...
But tonight I need my bed.
Blessings J. x


  1. I'm sorry the dreams of your daughter's new home have been dashed. Although it must be crushing, perhaps it's a time to count blessings, and maybe it's not what they were hoping for but it sounds as though they are already looking at making new plans.
    Enjoy your tree morning! X

    1. Thank you Jules...we are now resigned to the idea and they are planning on ordering a woodburner at the weekend! x

  2. Oh I am so sorry about the disappointing.
    What a busy week you have planned. Please make sure you take some time to rest if you can.
    Love and Hugs-x-

    1. Yes Sheila...but in the grand scheme of things it's not the worst thing that could happen. Onwards and upwards! x
