Life Update – Where Have I Been?!

Hey lovelies! It seems like forever since I last wrote a blog post so I thought I’d give you guys a little update on what’s been happening and why I’ve been so quiet on here and social media…

We Finally Moved House!!!

After putting in an offer on our first home together back at the start of November 2018, we finally got to move in on February 22nd 2019… yes it really took that long!

So basically that’s why I’ve been so quiet on here, moving home takes a lot of time, especially when you’re first time buyers, have to buy everything new and then spend your weekends building furniture and decorating!

We still don’t have all of our furniture either! Our sofas could take up to another 8 weeks and our wardrobe is going to take at least another 12 so at the minute we’re sitting on fold out camping chairs in the living room and we haven’t been able to unpack certain things!

It’s Never Plain Sailing…

If you follow my Twitter you’ll probably have seen that since we moved in it hasn’t all been plain sailing either…

Two days after we got the keys our boiler decided it was going to give up so we had no central heating for a few days, after having a plumber out he told us it was basically knackered and got the heating working but that meant we had no hot water (luckily the shower is electric). 

In the end less than two weeks after we got the keys we had ourselves a brand new boiler fitted. Obviously this isn’t ideal when you’ve just moved out as it was one expense we didn’t expect to have but it had to be done. On the bright side at least we don’t have to boil the kettle every time we want to wash up or wear 3 jumpers to keep warm now!

What Does This Mean For My Blog?

Since we’ve moved out I haven’t had a single chance to write a blog post until now, every spare minute of my time is spent cleaning, washing or decorating, it’s hard work owning a house you know!

I was contemplating whether I should have a month or two away from blogging and do a complete re-brand but I don’t think I want to do that, it seems like too much work considering how little time I have and I enjoy writing the content I’ve been putting out lately.

Unfortunately I cannot commit to a blogging schedule at the minute but hopefully when we’re a little more settled in the house I can get writing again as I have so many ideas for posts and I still have products I need to review for you guys!

There might be some new content about being a homeowner too so let me know if that’s something you’d like to see!

Thank you to everyone who reads my blog for being patient with me, hopefully I’ll be back soon and you’ll still be here to read my ramblings! Until then…

  1. Congratulations on the new home! Why is the whole process mind numbingly long?! I remember the heartache everytime ours was delayed and the moving date was pushed back!
    Wishing you lots of happiness and love in your new home! Hopefully you’ll get settled properly soon! I still struggle with balancing work, home and blogging! 🙈 x
