I've been a rather absent blogger of late but I'm sure after this blog post you'll forgive me. Life has been getting rather hectic of late. Infact that's an understatement to say the least as some major changes have been happening in my life.

Firstly, remember the house I've been talking about? Well it's officially ours (and has been for a while but maybe that explains my absence from the online world!).

We've been gutting it and are finally at a point where we are beginning to put things back in, instead of just ripping it all out. However, there's still an awful lot to do and at the moment looks more like a building site than a home. The fact we are moving in less than 2 weeks doesn't exactly fill me with confidence either... but one way or another it will be done to a point that we can live in it. Decorating may come later, a functioning kitchen and bathroom and boiler/heating system are far more important as it the moment it has none of these after we ripped the old ones out (along with all the wallpaper, floor coverings, internal woodwork etc etc - you get the point right?)

So erm to say we have a lot of work to do is an understatement! Ha.

But that's not my only news. The huge big announcement that I'm super excited to make is that....


Some of you will know I've not exactly been happy at Sainsburys for a while. Whilst I don't mind HR, it wasn't for me and I've now got a job with The Wildlife Trust.
Yes really. Could I be any more excited? No probably not although it is all a little surreal right now. I handed my notice in yesterday and in a little over 3 weeks time will be starting my new job. I seriously cannot wait, not only is it working for an amazing organisation but the terms and conditions are far better too.

So I'm sure you can understand why I've not got much time for anything at the moment. Crafting has taken a back seat and I've not touched a thing for well over 2 weeks now. Life is just too busy and now we've got the house every minute of my spare time when I'm not at work or doing my college work is spent at the new house.
So please bear with me, I will be back soon and I'll hopefully do a post with some updates (and photos!) of the house soon. It'll be great when it's done, but there's so much to do!
