It feels like AGES since I last posted anything other than a blog tour post (but I do love those) and that’s just because life has been busier than usual and my head hasn’t had the space for blogging. My anxiety and stress levels have also been a bit all over the place because we have recently put our gorgeous, lovely home on the market.
Today is the start of week 4 on the market! I have learned that I am not the sort of person that finds it easy to have no control over when I will be moving.
I want to move. Most days. I keep changing my mind from wishing the house will sell tomorrow to being fine if it takes six months or so… Does everyone feel like this when selling a home?
I think moving is the right thing to do for my family, but I am going to be SO SAD to say goodbye to this house. Heartbreakingly. Sad.
It has been the house that I’ve grown from a just-married 20 something to a mother, to a nearly 40 year old (sometimes acting it) adult. We bought the house over a decade ago with the hope of filling it with a big family, but that wasn’t to be. Infertility nearly stole that dream from me, it nearly broke me to a point I am not sure I would have been entirely fixable and then my beautiful baby girl arrived – she’s now in Primary 3. We are a perfect little family. But sometimes this house still reminds me I wanted a more hectic, different life.
So, it is time to say goodbye.
It’s also time to move for many other reasons, to reduce my hubby’s commute, I want more on our doorstep than a little village can provide, and I want to live somewhere that has a library. And a coffee shop.
My head has been filled to the brim with information on houses – mine and others! As well as mortgage details, school catchment areas and a million other little details. I haven’t had the head space to read, let along blog and I have been terrible at retuning or responding to any comments – apologies.
But I am making the effort to spend time on the things I love – reading, writing and blogging. So I will be around this week!
I’ve also been busy having a lot of fun and enjoying some lovely days out – Autumn is just my favourite time of year.
I love scarves and blankets and the colours of autumn!
I’ve been buying LOADS of books lately, which I will post over on Instagram when I get caught up here. I really need to learn to multitask better, I feel like I can never quite keep up with Instagram, twitter and blogging!
My Instagram is – https://www.instagram.com/writesjules/ I attempt to follow back all bookish accounts.
I will do a bookish Wrap-up post soon.
ALSO Ready Player 2 is released later this month and I CANNOT wait. I LOVED the first one – LOVED IT!
Have a great Monday!
I hope you’ve all been keeping well and feel free to leave me any links to some of your amazing blog posts that I need to catch up with.
