Have any of you ever lost your blogging mojo?
I must admit, mine has disappeared like the British summer sun.
When I get out of a habit, I find it very hard to get back into it again. When we were working towards moving in there was a goal and a sense of purpose, but now we've done it we're, quite frankly, exhausted.
Just over four years of full-time jobs and rest-of the-time-renovations are hard work on the body. Exceeded budgets are hard on the brain and the heart. Despite the joy of finally being able to move in and the contentment of actually being there, the desire to fall into bed (and sleep!) is greater than the desire to celebrate.
I'm going to save that small celebration for Christmas, when we hope to have a little bit of mojo for life back!
Lights are my favourite part of the house as the first signs of my favourite season approach. Each of them were sale items that we spotted over several months and in different stores. Fashions change so quickly that shops change their stock on a regular basis.So, if you're interested in what you like, rather than just trends, wait for the sale!
And don't forget about Ikea for roller blinds!!
This is not a 'loads of money' house, it's about getting the best you can for the least amount kind of place.
I'll leave you with one of my favourite Christmas presents. He personifies how we feel. He lives in our bedroom. (I'd be reluctant and frightened to tell you how old he is, but US folks may remember him.)
