A Catch-up, Of Sorts.

Completely unrelated, but he's so lovely when he sleeps.
I haven't really wrote a post for the sake of it in a while, and I just wanted to do that today. Spring has sort of snuck up on me and now I've lost an hour in bed each morning and it gets lighter with each train journey back home. Which is nice, I guess, as no one likes getting up and getting home in the dark. Despite being an autumn baby, I have always felt at home in the sunshine - I sometimes worry that I have Seasonal Affective Disorder - so it's nice to know that summer is on it's way and it might be a hot one too! 

The next month or so will see me hopefully get on to the third year of my degree, after putting in a lot of hard work. I've still got deadlines cropping up but the end is somewhat in sight. After completely loving my first year at university, the second year took me by surprise, and I really took on more than I could handle over Christmas. Two jobs; plenty of uni work and deadlines; looking after myself, a toddler, husband and dog all got a bit much at times, but I've made it to now and it really is getting to the last lap of my 2013/14 academic year. Which is quite sad, but I am looking forward to finally having a night out with the uni girls and getting to spend the summer with the boys in my life. 

Another thing I have been dealing with is a potential move. It would be fair to say that I've never been truly happy in the house we currently rent - it doesn't have a bath for a start - so I have always kept my eyes half-looking for another property to rent. Sadly, it seems like all the house prices have shot up recently so that means we will either need to live like paupers or discover some sort of money tree. Any help locating the later will result in some sort of reward. I would love to move closer to Bristol, but that seems unlikely so we may look into moving nearer Joe's workplace - and the more-easily accessible train line - which is exciting. 


So, that's pretty much how things in my bubble have been lately. Have you been up to anything exciting lately? Don't suppose you found a money tree nearby?

  1. You're a busy sausage. The second year of uni is such a ball ache-work becomes something of an essential.
    If I stumble upon the money tree I'll draw you a treasure map.

    1. I really am! There's so much work, I wish I could just clone myself and have someone else to do the hard work for me ;)

      I'll be pestering the postman every day until the treasure map arrives x

  5. Good luck with the house hunting - I know all too well at the moment what a horrid task that it, i've seen far too many houses with black mold in the past couple of weeks that's for sure! And if you find that pot of gold, I wouldn't mind some hints regarding it's general location :D
