Happy 4th Anniversary

Happy 4th Anniversary to us. 4 years; I cannot believe it. 2 years ago we got engaged and in 18 months we’ll be getting married. It’s been a big year for us. We’ve bought a house that we’re renovating. We’ve booked our wedding; making bigger commitments to one another.

We had a lay in. I temporarily forgot it was Tuesday and finished an episode of telly. Dave told me off and that was all the telly I watched today.

We came home after finishing puppy sitting for the in-laws, able to exchange our presents. Dave got me Noel Fitzpatrick autobiography and the Harry Potter expansion box. I got him the new Game of Thrones book.

We had a trip to the house. Need to ring the skip people as it’s still there. We also need to collect some more plaster for the plasterer. 2 bedrooms are now complete.

I also sorted out my car insurance it was up for renewal and they wanted me to pay an extra 300 a year. Not a chance.

The new job got back to me on yesterday’s replies. I think I’m gonna wait till Friday then hand my notice in. I could also cancel my notice closer to December if necessary.

I’ve spent some of the afternoon on Spyro; sods law it fucked up and lost my saved data. I had to start all over again. I have no idea what happened but anyway I got on with it and gained 16% back.

Now I’ve to finish packing and get to my grandparents, it my turn again to stay over.

Behind Door Number 1

It’s the start of December. In 24 days Christmas is here. The 1st is the start of advent but I haven’t been eating chocolate since the end of January. Which means I haven’t got a chocolate advent this year.

I found a puzzle advent calendar that covers the 12 days of Christmas. As I couldn’t wait to get started my 12 days start today.

Each day there is a mini puzzle behind each door. It’s nice to be able to have a go at doing a puzzle. Living at my parents there isn’t enough room to be doing the 1000 piece ones I love to do.

The puzzle behind door number 1 is:

I think they’re cute. Cannot wait to open door number 2 tomorrow.

‘I’m not a waiting person’

Another relaxing day, I took the dogs for a walk, watched a film, went home to sort my dogs out. Then I took my grandad shopping and to his after op appointment. He’s doing well. My grandma has been a bit moody over the last few days so that’s been fun.

Once back, Dave and I spent the evening in front of the telly again. I also received an update from my new employer. They are missing some things so I’ve been chasing these up. Hopefully, by the end of the week, these will be sorted.

I get apprehensive when I’m waiting for these things to happen. It raises my anxiety levels a bit. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan.

‘Much Needed Time Together’

We’re now at the in-laws, puppy sitting. They left this morning for Newcastle. I woke in time to wish them off. I then let the dogs in to wake Dave up. Once ready we decided to go to Rabbit-Ings Country Park. It was a lovely walk. When we’d decided to head back we hadn’t even walked it all. We did about half it. We’d like to go back. You can see the views for miles. We even sat and had an ice lolly.

We decided then to come back for lunch then go to the cinema. I was home and in my pj’s for 5pm. The only time I got up was for the takeaway and to go to the loo. We had a night together in front of the telly. It was a day together we needed.

Missed Post 17.11.2018

It was good not having a day where it was all planned. My grandparents have kicked us out during the day. So as I had no plans, my step-dad and Dave were at the house putting plasterboards on the ceiling, I spent most of the day with my mum. It was nice and chilled with odd jobs being done too.

On the evening we went to our friends to help celebrate his birthday. Played games, and they drank. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t particularly like it when Dave’s drunk. He is a silly drunk; more in the idiot kind of why not the funny silly. Once we were home Dave was fast out once his head hit the pillow.

Even though that thought happened, it was still a good day.

‘We gotta get it done’

I’ve been tired today. I only got 3-4 hours sleep last night. I was very unsettled and I was in my own bed. I guess with all that’s going on, it’s causing me to stress more then I realise.

We’ve found out we need to overboard two more ceilings in the house before the plasterer can do his thing in the areas. He’s finished the bathroom. So things are moving along. We’re having to do the ceilings this weekend, so this evening we’re last minute ordering ready to collect 1st thing Saturday morning. Also, the sump pump has arrived for the cellar. So that’ll be another job to be done too. Especially with the amount of rain we are having.

Everything is piling up. But we took it on, we gotta get the work done.
