Well, I have so much to tell you I don’t know where to start. It been 22 days since I left “proper” work and started caring for my Mum full time and despite some bumps in the road I can hand on heart tell you this is the best thing I ever did. I am sleeping, I am actually getting into bed at 11pm and getting a full 8 hours sleep most nights. Of course this is helped slightly by the fact that on a number of nights I am not getting into bed alone.
S got the job near me and has sot of moved in. I say sort of as actually it’s only 3 nights a week, and it’s only until he finds a house of his own up this way, but still eek! Also, this sort of move in has meant that I have had to meet his folks. Quite rightly, they didn’t like the idea of him moving in with a complete stranger. They are lovely and despite a few set backs the first time I went to meet them – am I the only person who stupidly decides to try new products for the very first time just before a big important event?! – they think I am lovely and keep inviting me down to see them. Which is pretty awesome. I also met his siblings, who apparently also approve which is something of a record as apparently before me they have hated every single girlfriend S has ever introduced them to. So I am claiming this as a massive win.
I’m also desperately trying to think of what else I have to tell you… I know I had more stuff, but being completely honest this is the first Saturday night I have had off in about a month and I am currently starting my second glass of wine, and I am yet to make dinner. As it is a lovely night, I have put Poppy in the garden which means I can plug in my old, horrendously slow laptop without fear she will chew through the cable. She did this to S, and as he is a little bit of a techy geek, the type of laptop he uses has charger cables which cost £80 to replace. I will admit when he first told me I felt awful and considered buying a replacement, but then when I thought about it I realised that a. I had pre-warned him that she chews cable and so him choosing to have her out and the cable on the floor was his own stupid mistake and b. he is very lucky he did not electrocute my rabbit, and so I went from wondering how to apologise to him to thinking about how he would apologise to me.
S has been lovely and built me a new computer, so that I can continue with my blogging now I am no longer at work. Being honest a lot of my blog posts were written on my lunch breaks, and so until that is up and running I don’t know how sporadic my updates will be. I do know that there will be a review post coming up soon, do you remember the awesome vegan face cream I was sent a while back? (link here for reference) Well the lovely people at Naturelle Cosmetics sent me some body scrub to review (spoiler alert: it’s amazing!) which I know I must do, but as adding those two links has caused my lap top to throw a bit of a hissy I am not yet brave enough to try adding photos as well as links… which might explain the random header image. I took a two glasses of wine inspired random pick of pictures I had already got in the “back end” of the blog.
Anyway, I really should go and make a start on tea. I hope you are all well? Let me know what’s going on with you in the comments, and I promise as soon as I can I will be back. In the meantime, know I am thinking about you often and sending nothing but good wishes
