Here's my update in brief:
-We got the keys to our new house on September 27th so have been busy busy trying to decorate, floor and furnish it. P took two weeks off work to do the bulk of the work and we are moving in properly this weekend. The delay was because the showers weren't connected until after the tiling had been done.
- we bought our couch and dining set today, (very very very exciting, we had a nightmare finding a couch that we both liked)
-We had our first wedding anniversary (can you believe how quickly that year flew?) on September 30th, we went out for a nice meal to celebrate.
- Work is going fine, I have really settled in now and feel a lot more like I know what is going on. The type of work that I am doing is completely different than my old job so it was a steep learning curve!
-I changed my name! When my new boss was putting me on the headed paper I decided to use my husband's name- and I have spent some time getting used to it, but it's nice to be referred to as Mr & Mrs F!
- next weekend is a bank holiday here and we are going away as we have been together ten years on 30th(!) We are going to Clonakilty in West Cork, a beautiful part of the country with fabulous scenery etc. I went there for my hen weekend and adored the spa there (http://www.inchydoneyisland.com/) so I was given vouchers for my birthday and I am going to use them on Saturday afternoon, I've booked in for a facial, seaweed bath and massage, can't wait.
-My IBS is so calm now it's wonderful. The only thing that kills me that I like to eat is icecream (but I can have small doses and just get wind but no cramps) and alcohol. I can sneak a slice of cheese in a sandwich or a little ham or bacon fine, I even managed a burger lately without any ill effects. It took me so long to get to this place!
Send me your updates and I will check in to say hello.
