Well, this has been a very grown up few weeks. My attention has been taken away from my blog and illustrating for a number of reasons, mostly the very exciting search for a new house.
We have been looking for somewhere to buy and have found a lovely place, just a stone's throw away from the fields in the photo. A little house next to horses and a little farm selling chicken eggs with an honesty box (I have spent much too long imagining myself as a modern day Beatrix Potter for it to be healthy!)
|Our potential new neighbours!|
However, this fun and buying of every interior lifestyle magazine all comes with the very grown up obligations to estate agents and mortgage advisors and solicitors and a million other things that muddle my brain and bore me in equal measure.
And these things are all SO adult and sensible. Coupled with having a full time office job I feel like someone has taken over my life and replaced the frivolous, creative me with a proper grown up. All very strange. Buying a house really needs to be simplified and maybe even just transferred to an online checkout with a next day delivery option. I am not very patient!
So I hope you understand my very poor blogging in the last week. And I promise this week to have LOTS of fun things for you to read - mostly for my benefit so I can think of other things aside from where my latest P60 might be and what colour I want to paint the pantry in our potential new house!
I will also follow up on my accounting tips this week, some of you sent me some questions which I will get answered asap - if anyone has any more finance queries please send them my way and I will do a bumper blog as soon as I can.
Hope you're enjoying the sunshine!
