Eventful Week .......

What an eventful week this has been. Firstly & most importantly, after 18 months of emotional turmoil, the house is now mine!! My ex partner at long last agreed on a settlement figure & everything was finalised on Tuesday. The sense of relief is hard to explain but there is also the sadness & heartache that comes from a break up. I have tried to stay strong for the little men but at times it has been very hard.

Now I am looking to the future & have lots of plans & ideas for the house. I have been busy clearing & getting rid of old furniture, toys, clothes & odds & ends that we no longer want, need or have grown out of. I have kept a few favorite old toys that I will put up in the Attic for the little men.

On Friday my new oak sideboard & oak dresser were delivered & I'm over the moon with them. After months of living in limbo it's great to start making the house into a home. The next big project will be ripping out & replacing the kitchen after Christmas, which I'm really looking forward to. It will be the first new kitchen I've had as I have always made do with what was there.

In the middle of all this bustling activity I have snatched some hooking time here & there & I managed to finish my Ripple Blanket #2, I will post some photos soon.

Well I have housework & ironing to get on with so back to grind stone !!!


  1. Good luck for the future, must feel like a real turning point for you - make sure you blog the kitchen redecoration won't you? :)

  2. Congrats on the news with the house! Very happy for you. At least you and the boys can stay in the house you love. Awesome!
