Sunday Share #25 & #26 - Currently

Hi Guys & Gals!
It's been a while since I last blogged, well, only two weeks - but that's a lifetime for a blogger...For Sunday Share I thought I'd quickly share with you some of the things that have been CURRENTLY happening in our lives.  

What's been happening? 
We have officially moved out! Handed over the keys to the new owner on Wednesday. It's really sad saying goodbye to houses, especially when you have been there a while and when it becomes a home for your family. My partner had lived there for 7 years (it was his first home), then Miss B and I moved in mid 2013, when I was 8 weeks pregnant with Master M. We have a lot of good memories in that home and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives. 

Here is how we left the house...Each room was deep cleaned from top to bottom, carpets commercially cleaned and ready for the new owner's tenant to move in on Saturday. The flowers were a gift to us from the new owner - who thanked us for everything we had done - she absolutely loves the house.

What about us?
We are currently staying with friends (my best friend and her partner) on their farm. They have such a lovely, cozy home, with a detached large sleep-out - perfect for our little family. We are so fortunate to have such amazing friends! We are so thankful that they are able to help us out and give us a 'temporary' home. 

The kids are settling in really well - Master M is still exploring his new surroundings, and is getting much better about touching 'everything' within reach! Master M has been cutting his 12th tooth (top right molar) and it is causing him a lot of pain! He has been extra grizzly, clingy and waking several times during the night. It makes it hard when we are all in the same room. We are getting there though. Miss B has the option of sleeping inside the house, in the spare room, if it gets a bit too much for her, but in the meantime, I think she quite likes having us altogether.

Since handing over the keys on Wednesday, a whole lot of weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I am feeling relaxed, like I am free! It's nice that we are having a little break before we move into our new home (details of that COMING SOON), however in the meantime, I am enjoying spending this time catching up with my best friend and loving our 'temporary' home. (Check out the view from the top of the hill (located next to the house).

This week I have been calling Tech Support to try and get to the bottom of my external hard-drive dilemma! I had a local Computer Repair Business check it out, but unfortunately it's a much bigger job than what he expected, and he was unable to recover my data. So I will send it away to someone who specialises in Data Recovery and get a quote - I can only imagine it's going to cost an arm and a leg, but it will be worth it, if I can get my photos back!

Since we have moved everything into storage, I will be taking a break from the 30 Day Declutter Challenge. I absolutely hate not finishing a challenge, however - in my case I have nothing here to declutter, so I will wait until we have moved into our new home and then restart the challenge. Have you been doing the challenge? How are you getting on? 

Tonight I was telling my friend the best and easiest way to clean your oven is to use Baking Soda and White Vinegar (with a bit of elbow grease for those stubborn stains). See: How to Clean Your Oven.

We spent today visiting my partner's family. It was great to see them all (parents and brother) and watching the kids (cousins) play together. 

Feeding the chooks
I am planning on returning to blogging over the next week or two...I have a great Guest Post coming up with an amazing DIY project - I can't wait to share it with you. If all goes well this week, I will have it on the blog on Friday - so watch this space. 

I am also hoping to rejoin my blogging friends for #TuesdayTen and #1Word in a couple of weeks! 

Since we are staying with friends, it's only fair we share the load - especially when it comes to cooking. Tonight, my partner and I made Bacon & Egg pie, with garlic bread and salad on the side.

My kids are growing so fast! I can't believe that in six months, Miss B will be finishing her last year at Primary School, and will be off to Intermediate (eek!). Master M continues to thrive - he is such a cool little dude...he loves it here on the farm, exploring the garden, feeding the chooks, and chatting to the farm dog every day!

I am still taking photos for my FMS Photo a Day and have really enjoyed the prompts. I will share my photos in a separate post this week.
