Dear wonderful readers,
Firstly, HIIII! How the devil are you? I have been missing you and your lovely comments and likes on facebook, twitter etc 🙂 I will get my butt into gear soon lol! A little catch up with you all, I thought I would sit with a coffee and update you all on what has been going on. So grab a coffee and pop you feet up and have a peruse through.
Recently we had the kitchen in our home done. This is almost finished and just needs some silicon around the edges of the tilling and shelves and then we are done! It’s looking good, we are really pleased how the new kitchen has opened up the place well and also have the extra storage is great. The main thing is having the fridge back into the kitchen as the previous owners tried to do an open plan kitchen but the fridge wasn’t part of it…? Here we have a before and after…. Left before and right after. I do also realise and this is completely by accident that my dog is lying exactly like her toy duck! Hahaha!
Next, I have been headhunted from a company who would like me to write articles for them! They are paying me per article which is very exciting 😀 They would like one article a week to start and i’m told they would like to increase what I do for them. They didn’t go into details but this could be really exciting! As I have been self employed before, this isn’t scary for me. What is scary is that they may not like how I write as everyone has their own style. We will trial for a month (my suggestion) and I hope they like what I do! Getting paid to work from home is a dream come true. On top of the little bit of Avon I do will be a lovely bit of pocket money for me 🙂 My husband has been an amazing support through this, so one of my first purchases with this money will be a thank you gift for him. Something really meaningful, so I will need to have a good brainstorm. He is my rock and my world.
As you may have noticed, I have also been busy re-branding my blog with a sleek new look. I am very pleased with how it’s turning out and I would love some feedback. Also, my last post was successfully submitted to The Mighty. This has now been published and is doing very well for my first one and now I am a contributor for them. This is a wonderful feeling and I am truly loving this. You can see the finished product here.
My pain levels have evened out now so the flare is going down at least. We had our new mattress delivered last week and this has been helping with my sleep. It’s a ‘healthapeadic’ mattress and is actually really comfy. I think the next thing is to find the right pillows as my neck is so bad when laying down. I get a lot of pain in the back of my neck and it doesn’t seem to matter how I lay. If anyone has some suggestions on good pillows for neck support I would love to hear them.
So for now I will say, catch you all later. I have my dad popping over shortly. We are going to be looking at the engine today to see what air, fuel filters etc we need to service the engine. This sort of thing I find fascinating and will be looking forward to learning more about our floating home.
Be good and take it easy all! Much love x
