All over dear readers. Well only to Scotland and back but it feels like a lot more. It’s funny how you feel like you will forever be running down that never-ending path in the labyrinth going nowhere when BOOM a little worm appears and tells you the way, “Things aren’t always as they seem” Well, he tells Sarah the wrong way but you get what I mean. Everything seems to be happening at once, it’s madness. There has been so much going on that my blog has been a little neglected. Apologies. I hate not finding the time to sit down with a cup of tea and blog. So, without further ado here’s a quick catch up of the what’s been happening in this mad crazy thing I call my life.
We are moving to Scotland! In about a week or so! Don’t worry we didn’t just wake up one day and think “Scotland? Ok let’s go!” It has been in the works for many months and a lot of research, thinking and planning has been done. It has been such a big, tough decision for us to make, moving further away from our families but we are doing it for the right reasons for us. It’s such a beautiful Country and we can not wait to start the next chapter of our life there. EXCITED MUCH!!!!
I’m still pregnant! 37 weeks today! Mogwai is extremely happy and healthy kicking my insides. Hopefully he will decide to keep doing this until we have moved and will give us a bit of time to unpack a few boxes before making an appearance. People will think we are mad moving while I am this heavily pregnant but it makes a lot of sense to us. More importantly to me, as it’s down to what I feel comfortable with. So I keep being told. Moving while Mogwai is still all cosy and nestled in my womb just seems sensible to me. He’s in the safest place he can be. I can’t think of anything more stressful than moving to a new house with a newborn and a toddler while recovering from birth. If we are already there and have the stress of moving mostly over with, I think it would be a lot better. Don’t get me wrong I am well aware that it’s not going to be easy but I can at least try to help ease some stress before his grand arrival. Yep, I don’t make things easy for myself do I? (Grins like a crazy person)
Husband passed his degree! I am extremely proud of him! Some of the worst years of his life have happened while he has been at university but he has worked hard and finally finished. It’s not been an easy journey for him and I have no idea how he has kept going with everything that has happened. I know for a fact that if it was me, I would have crumpled and been at a complete loss. But he has stayed strong and determined. One of the many reasons why I love this panda. I honestly could not be more proud of him. Cheese! Yes extra cheese as always!
So yeah,I think that’s it, the main things anyway. A lot has been happening. Big things! My brain is confuzzled! (is that even a word? Now it is!) With pregnancy hormones going berserk, an endless list of what to pack, your normal aches and pains of pregnancy, oh and a toddler running riot! We will somehow get there. We will! It’s all a part of life isn’t it. Those special big shiny moments that you look back on and smile fondly at. They just forget to mention how stressful, time-consuming and tiring it all is don’t they? How all you want to do is just scream psychotically and cry about how much you still have left to do. Oh life you cruel yet beautiful strange thing. We love you but at times I want to strangle you. But then again, if we all had an easy life it would be pretty boring right? If everything went smoothly and nothing ever went wrong it would’t be living would it? The bad outweighs the good and vice versa, yin and yang. Can’t have one without the other. It’s like at times we are all living in our own personal snow-globe. The snow has settled and everything is fine and dandy but then suddenly a curious child comes along and shakes your globe about disturbing the snow and causing it to whirl madly around you. You don’t know what to do or understand why this chaos has suddenly happened upon you. You are confused and distressed at this state of affairs and wonder why this child has chosen you as their innocent victim. Yet it’s oddly beautiful and enchanting as you watch the snow fall to the ground. Once it has settled again you wonder why you were ever scared as things have quickly returned to how they were before. What’s my point? I can’t actually remember. Damn this pregnancy brain! But you get the idea. I think? Blahhh
I hope you are all well! I am off to nibble a slice of lemon cheese cake that has had my name calling before continuing with the packing. It’s crazy seeing your life in boxes. Never knew how much rubbish I actually own! AGHHHHH! Wish me luck!
Hop hop wiggle wiggle.
