Oh, the relief! It has been such a long process since we sold our house, however it has finally worked out for us in the end. Thankfully, we requested a short settlement, so we will be moving into our new home in a couple of weeks! Yippee.
In the meantime, we are back at the Farm, after spending two weeks house sitting for our friends. We will be here until Settlement. We are loving it so far, it's calf season, so we have met some gorgeous newborn calves today - Master M is in his element being surrounded by animals - he is one very happy boy.
It's Back To School tomorrow, and Miss B is looking forward to catching up with all her friends. In fact she has requested that we leave home earlier than normal, so she can chat to her friends before the bell. We will see how we go in the morning.
***Now it's time to share what is CURRENTLY happening in my life (other than the fact WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!). I am going to use the same words as last week - Watching, Reading, Listening, Making, Feeling, Planning, and Loving.
Watching: Ooh I am going to fast forward to this Tuesday, when I will be joining a group of my mummy friends to watch Magic Mike XXL! It's going to be AH-mazing! We are all very excited about it. Have you seen it? **Please no spoiler alerts**
To The Husband with a Depressed Wife by Swords and Snoodles went VIRAL this week - Such a great read! A MUST READ!
If you love, K-Mart and even more so, K-Mart Hacks - Then you must check out Girl on a Missi0n's K-Mart Hacks post. It has some amazing hacks created by people around the globe, including some of her own hacks. I love the black geo candle idea - I think it would look gorgeous in Miss B's new Paris themed room.
I am also reading Click.Love.Grow's guest post 4 Easy Tips - Improve Your Photos using iPhone or DSLR via The Organised Housewife. I love learning about photography, and these tips are a great place to start for a beginner like me.
Listening: well, reading the lovely comments my readers, YOU, have been leaving on my "How I feel about my body" post. It was really hard for me to share my own feelings and emotions about my body, however I did and you all loved my post, some were even inspired...it warms my heart to know my words inspired others to be open and honest about their own bodies, so THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL. I am now ready to focus more on the positives and be thankful for my body.
Making: some meals in advance thanks to my blogging friend, Tegan over at A Kiwi Mumma for sharing these yummy recipes on her blog. The Potato, Onion, Cheese Frittata looks divine.
Feeling: FANTASTIC. That.Is.All
Since our offer was accepted, I have been busy planning how I am going to organise our new home, including an office for me *squeal*. Buying a few new items and sketching plans of how the kids rooms are going to look, to match their themes. I have been getting a lot of inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest (I love Social media) and I can't wait to get stuck in! Moving into a house and setting it up is the best, especially when you OWN it!
Loving: Howards Storage World - Oooh I forgot to share some exciting news (my bad)...I WON 1 of 2 $150 vouchers for Howards Storage World - thanks to the lovely Michelle from Keep Calm Get Organised for choosing me as the Facebook winner, during the Declutter Challenge. It totally made my day when I read Michelle's message, congratulating me and letting me know I was the winner. I spent hours, yes hours, perusing the website and narrowing it down to these items (pictured below). I can't wait to receive my goodies, and use them in our new home! Yaye for organisation!
Have a great week!
