Reality is hitting here. We REALLY have bought a house. Shit. We have a mortgage. Shit. Don't mistake my cursing for regret - I am VERY excited. But I am also VERY scared! Yesterday I posted a very big pile of papers off to the conveyancer, after signing my life away - a million times. Enclosed was also a VERY hefty cheque - for stamp duty - BOOOOO! And today, two VERY big envelopes arrived from the bank. More signing required it seems.
Today's school newsletter announced that I am retiring from the uniform shop! Made me laugh. Also received a letter from the kid's new school welcoming them. Reality...again.
I have started doing what I do best.......shopping. I made a
very quick one hour trip to Spotlight on Monday, I only needed one metre of fabric. I ended up in the homewares section and came home with half a dozen cushions, bath mats and curtains. Whoops.
I also purchased some amazing fabric online last week, (on sale - thanks to The Intrepid Thread) as I am planning how to decorate the girl's bedrooms. Andrew has suggested perhaps I have been watching too many episodes of "The Block"? I haven't given him the real story - I've been spending too much time on Pinterest. God I love that search button and the gasp of air that leaves me as I have a whole screen full of divine decorating ideas in the specified colours! Bless the creators of Pinterest....
The other thing I have found myself doing, much more often than I used to, is taking photos of random things of interest. If I find it somewhat amusing/disturbing or just plain wrong, I whip out my iPhone and file it away for future reference. And You are the lucky ones that get to share them with me!
|This little beauty is the latest creation at Ms Midge. I did a pattern review for The Oz Material Girls, which you can find HERE. They are the prettiest ruffle skirts ever!|
Finally - I am off to the Gold Coast in precisely EIGHT MORE SLEEPS! Not that I'm counting. I will be gone for three whole nights - CHILD FREE! Not that I'm excited. I will be spending the entire time with lifelong friends, and will be going to our 25 year primary school reunion! I am so very excited but have one very big concern
WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO WEAR????
