As I write, I am surrounded by boxes, piles of things, and lists of “to-dos”. As we all know, the physical moving of stuff between houses is one thing – settling in to a new place is something else entirely! We are getting there, however – most of the rooms are fairly presentable, or can be made so within a half hour. At least, that’s what I’m hoping – we are due to have quite a few visitors this weekend! I’m hoping that by this time next week I’ll be feeling really happy with how everything looks and will do a blog post with photos so you can all see our cute wee flat.
In addition to being in our new place, I am also on summer break (Praise be!). I had every good intention of going into school a lot this week, but a break from my classroom and the endless reams of paperwork has been blissful. I’ll be in some afternoons next week, probably, but for now it’s nice to have been away for a little while!
Right, I shall close this brief missive with two requests for advice – one for the ladies, one for the cooks….
1. I’m thinking of trying a new skincare regime – what range do you ladies use?
2. I have treated myself to a crockpot / slow cooker (yay!). Do you guys have any good recipes for such things?
Right, time to go to the post office and the gym (ah, the gym. This is the point in the summer break where I can really feel that I haven’t worked out enough – I’m fine *during* the workout, but the morning after is always a shocker!). More soon – have a lovely Friday!
