SOLC Slice of Life – The first Piece of July Pie!

Standard

I am delighted to have made it back online and there is so much going on these slices could be bigger than humble pie! I will try and limit myself to news from the past week!

Well the big news of course – which if you follow my blog you will know I moved house! Mr G and I are now happily living with bits of furniture in the wrong room and boxes and boxes of stuff. I am busy sorting the kitchen first – despite it being a good size the storage is a mini size and with the combination of all our things it is a bit of a nightmare. Plus the removal man couldn’t fit the washing machine so we need someone pin-up-woman-cleaning-up-cold-blue-winter-snow-28623149around to do that. And the laundry has piled up, I planned to do final washes at the apartment – I was worried about water everywhere though – and with good reason the floor needed quite a mopping when the machine was moved!

If it’s not fixed by the weekend then we will need launderette trips.

files-archiveI have just under three weeks left at work. I need to sign up for some agencies and the like ready for some earning potential – particularly as I am still paying for the apartment, I did manage to arrange estate agent evaluations this week though! Finally – been wanting to have it on the market since May but there was so much stuff in it I could never have got it to a presentable standard. I need to do a deep clean and some DIY in the kitchen but they can at least come and tell me what I can hope to get for it.

My neighbours are selling too – 3 of us in the same part of the building – I am hoping the ‘no chain’ factor helps push mine and I have a feeling it may be going on for less than the others. (As there are basic and deluxe kitchens and I believe my side has the basic fittings.)

That’s my next mission sell my flat before Christmas! timer

The past fortnight has been a mission – offline – no TV – just work – sleep – and packing! Apart from my friends BBQ housewarming which was a lovely evening and the first time I have been out in months!

The weekend together at the new house was lovely though – the sun finally shining – summer FINALLY here! Lots of relaxing in the garden after weeks/months of high stress house move feelings! It took us a while to get here but here we are and it was worth waiting for – like all good things.

And in my writing life I have started Camp NaNoWriMo (my 2nd trip to the virtual writers retreat this year, I did 54000 words in April), my summer camp target is just 35000 I am dancing around the 8000 mark – but work will finish before camp does allowing me some catch up time!

Off to grab breakfast in the box city kitchen and read some of your slices before unpacking the house some more!

    • Bless you, it is a case of push or stagnate – I have spent many years not doing anything other than surviving life work sleep work sleep – it was a destructive cycle that led me to great illness. After being on medication and losing the best part of a year or more I decided to take control. I was blaming everyone around me for the failure that was my life and had totally forgotten the operative word MY my life – I was in charge of it – except I wasn’t I was allowing myself to be pushed and moved.
      I have not had everything fall in my lap ever but I do know when I was in charge of my life a lot of good things happened – I keep going – knowing that before success comes a lot of hard work.
      I am a high functioning ‘insert illness label’ and I mean to keep going. There are many things I still find hard and days where I don’t want to leave the world of pillow and duvet – but I can already see the giant leaps forwards and it pushes me to create more positive outcomes and the biggest, most important lesson I have accepted is not to fight against my heart and spirit – they are more knowledgeable about where I should be and what I should become than even I am!
