We have been house hunting for what seems to be FORVER. We have liked houses, even loved houses, but have just been disappointed and have yet to find a home for our family. On Thursday we went to an auction for a property that we (my partner and I) really liked...it was the crappiest house on the best street, but unfortunately we missed out ...it's the old cliche "it's not meant to be" and I am okay with that, well I have to be...we have to move on. A few hours later, we went and saw another property that just came on the market...well...let's just say, we have put in an offer and I am hoping that our offer is accepted because the place was great - it ticks all the boxes for me and my family and I could totally see ourselves living there. I am keeping my fingers crossed, although I am also prepared for another disappointment! I have to keep positive that we WILL find a home!
I am on the right track at being organised for our big move! Participating in a Declutter challenge and packing as I go. I have my Planning Guide, coloured tape and stacks of boxes sitting in my lounge - ready to go! I have packed up Miss B's room and the Linen cupboard. Over the next couple of days, I will be tackling the Master Bedroom (including Master M's stuff), the Kitchen and my partner is doing the garage. I will be leaving the bathroom and lounge until last, because there isn't much to pack. Not long to go until Moving Day! eek!
The next couple weeks are going to be quite hectic for me and my family (with packing, house hunting and moving), so I am taking a little break from blogging until things settle down. I will still be working on "Clearing Out the Clutter" as I pack, and also taking photos for #FMSPhotoaDay. I won't, however, be linking up with #TuesdayTen & #1Word for a couple of weeks. You can still check out the amazing #TuesdayTen link up over at The Golden Spoons & The Liebers - this week, it's all about the JUNK DRAWER, I shared this post about junk drawers a while back during the #AtoZChallenge. On Wednesday/Thursday you can read some pretty amazing blog posts by a variety of bloggers in the #1WORD link up, hosted by Lisa, Janine & Marcia. These ladies inspire me every week and I look forward to returning to the link up soon!
We (me and a group of Mums) are planning on making a DIY: Musical Wall for our PlayCentre this week. Some of the Mums have already started collecting items for the wall. Exciting! Inspired by one of the Mums from my Declutter Challenge group (Thanks Felicity) who made one for their kindy. I can't wait to share the photos once it's all finished! Watch this space!
I am writing my TO-DO list for tomorrow - I have a few calls to make, a couple of rooms to pack and a 15 month old to entertain! I would LOVE to have a nap because I didn't get much sleep last night due to my son having a high temperature! He woke up happy as Larry this morning thankfully- me on the otherhand - I was a 'mombie'!
So there you have it, that is what I am 'currently' doing! What about you? What are you currently hoping, being, going, making, and writing?
