This blog has been very neglected so far this year! This is due to a rather drawn out house move, which included a stint living with my Mum, among other reasons. We finally moved into our new house at the end of August, to the excitement, and momentary apprehension of Scarlett. She was very happy living at mum's, but was instantly thrilled with the new house once she realised the lady selling it to us wasn't included in the deal(as nice as she was)! It is a project for sure, which is what we wanted and its very exciting to plot and plan a renovation for the future. For now we're putting our mark on the house, bit by bit. The house has a lovey feeling about it, and is close to Scarlett's school and friends. Ah yes, school...... anyone who knows me has had to endure my stress, ranting and general paranoia when trying to get Scarlett in to our chosen school. It was attached to her nursery, but we weren't yet living close enough for entry to Reception. To cut a very meandering story short, she's in and for the most part loving it. The days are a bit long for 4 year olds I feel, and she gets frustrated with doing the mundane tasks like dressing herself and queuing to leave the classroom! Isla is a force to be reckoned with (yes another one), and enjoys seeing the siblings on the school run everyday. Now that things have calmed down a bit, my focus is turning back to work and catching up in all I've missed in the design world. I will also be posting on the (most likely slow) progress made on doing up the house. Exciting times for our family!
