Wow, I haven’t done a catch up like this in YEARS. It’s hard because you often have stagnant weeks where not much happens, but I suppose as the weather gets warmer, it’s easier to chat about you’ve been up to. The week has gone slowly, yet flown by at the same time, which I always find so unusual.
Isla was on half term last week, which has thrown her sleeping out a little bit. I always find this quite hard, because although she’s a terrible sleeper, we’re so lucky that she’ll sleep through fairly often so when she’s still struggling to go down at 11pm (like she has done this week), it’s more of a worry for me, and I feel guilty that she doesn’t get to enjoy a decent night (a decent night to Isla, more like).
Isn’t the week before pay day such a slog? That’s the only way I can describe it. What is it like not living pay cheque to pay cheque?! Yes, I save. We both do, but I just cannot imagine a month where there’s not a wince and a “ooh, thank GOD we get paid this Friday!” I’d love to talk more about this, and how we, generally, organise our finances. I’m by no means an expert, hell, I spend the majority of what I earn on clothes, because that’s what I enjoy, but in terms of being organised… that’s something I feel we’ve relatively got down! Particularly with having to pay a mortgage off. If that’s something you’d like to hear more about, do let me know.
This weekend just gone, I’ve managed to clean the whole house, ready for a BBQ we had with a couple of friends over the weekend, just gone. Adam was in charge of the whole food side of things, I stuck to making a salad and drank a lot of wine so I wasn’t feeling TOO fresh the next day, but here we are.
Adam is a super keen BBQer and now that the weather’s getting a little better, we’re trying to get the coals out a little more often so he can practice his barbequing skills! I’m not complaining though, it means I get BBQ food (the best, after Thai…), leftovers for lunches and the ability to relax in the garden whilst he works!
