Or perhaps it’s just the fact that I am one busy girl.
I decided that I wanted to start a blog as I often have an anxious internal monologue that just wants to get out. Perhaps I should talk to a professional, but for now I’ll just put my thoughts out there and feel better for getting things off my chest even if no one wants to know.
Setting up accounts, emails, domains, resetting passwords for every account I need to log in to because I’m useless and forget them all.. and then actually deciding what to blog about. Maybe I’m taking too many things on at once.
Josh and I are in the process of buying our first house together, and although I knew it would be stressful, I didn’t realise I’d be quite so anxious about making sure everything is fully read, forms are returned the second they arrive on the doorstep and that we know exactly which sofa, coffee table and fridge freezer we are buying. Yeah, sometimes I’m over prepared. Add to that the fact that Josh is extremely anxious about something going wrong, as we are in love with this house, and things aren’t easy.
Don’t get me wrong, this whole thing is ridiculously exciting and I can’t wait to have our home together and get it exactly as we want it. We both live with our parents at the moment so are confined to one room most of the time – not because we’re ‘banished’ from other rooms, just that we like to be alone together a lot.. if that makes sense. Now we’re going to have an entire building to be alone together and it’s going to be amazing.
I’m getting slightly obsessed with finding furniture and furnishings for the house, and we haven’t even exchanged contracts yet. I just feel like everything is going to be ok and go smoothly and I just want to be excited NOW. Josh was reluctant to get his heart set on anything until recently, but last weekend I managed to get him to let me buy some things from The Range in Lincoln. I’m so glad we have the same kind of taste, I can already tell our house is going to be beautiful! I can’t wait to share pictures when we get moved in and start to make the place our own.
This post was meant to be about the blog, but has become a bit of a splurge of what’s going on in my head. I think this might be the way most posts, and probably the blog in general, will go. And for quite some time it’s probably going to be house, house, house too. Deepest apologies (naaaahhhttt).
I think it’s bedtime now. I’ve had what I like to call a sleepy tea (it’s actually Clipper Organic Sleep Easy) and am feeling very dozy.
