My Happy List Week #10

My Happy List Week #10

We have been in the new house over a week, which I cannot believe!! We have settled and all gone back to work but it is still a little strange being somewhere new after 5 years.

However, despite me and the gremlin STILL being snot monsters we have had a good week and this is what has made us happy:

  • The gremlin having an obsession with party dresses all of a sudden and wanting to change and prance about. She looked so happy when she found one from last summer to wear.
  • Hubby and I having a few days alone to sort the house, nip to IKEA and have lunch out in Nandos. The gremlin would have been bored stiff so so we don’t feel too bad.
  • Sitting in our gorgeous south facing garden which gets so warm in the sun and it is only April. I wonder what it will be like in the summer? We had our first al fresco lunch at the gremlin’s request and it was lovely.
  • Buying some cool new bits for the house like a funky coloured rug from Next, a giant wall clock from IKEA and a cool American fridge with an ice machine. Can’t wait to get it up and running.
  • The gremlin being a limpet has been a slight hindrance but her cuddles and affection are very lovely at the moment; not sure if me being pregnant has anything to do with this!
  • Going for a sneaky scan with hubby. It was amazing to see the little piglet and all was ok. I am saying no more!!
  • My cough getting better so hubby and I have been in the same bed. I am so sick of spare room sleeping when I am choking to death at 3am.
  • Actually going back to work. It’s helped to feel a bit more settled and in routine. Plus was nice to catch up with my colleague.

I’m looking forward to the weekend as Friday will be a loooong day in London with work but should be fun.

Have a good one lovelies 🙂

    Congratulations on the new home- sounds like you are all settling in nicely- the post-house move IKEA trips are the best aren’t they? Bet you are itching to get the place just how you want it? I don’t know how many times I had decorated our house in my head before we even got the keys Hope you’re all feeling a bit better #justanotherlinky

    A house move is the best excuse to visit ikea I bet you enjoyed your alone time together. I’m so envious of your American fridge too we’ve always wanted one. Hopefully you’re on the mend now! #happydays
