One Year

A year ago today we got our keys to our little dream cottage. The year that's followed has been a bit of a rollercoaster.

We've lost family, friends and pets but we've also acquired new ones. We've four mad, escape artist rats and a wonderfully daft dog. And we're hoping to get on the list for IVF soon so maybe there'll be a new family member on the cards shortly.

I've had a complete career overhaul and I couldn't be happier. I get on well with my colleagues and I actually have a social life again.

We've gone a year without having Sky TV (or any other package), getting by with DVDs, blu-rays and watching TV with friends and family. We've also been a year without Internet access purely because the longer we've gone without it, the less we've felt like we needed it!

Of course, I've got an iPhone again now which means we do have Internet access at home, even if we don't have a phone line or broadband. Hopefully this'll work and I'll actually be able to update my blog from home.

There have been plenty of ups and downs over the last year, but the ups definitely outweigh the downs. It's been a brilliant year!


  1. Wow a whole year?! Where does time go?!

    Sooooo happy for you! xx

    1. I know (and thank you :-D), it's insane really when you think about how much has happened since we moved in. On one hand it feels like no time at all and on the other it feels like we've been here forever!


Let me know what you think. :-)
