My Monthly Roundup - Instagram February 2015

It has been a busy busy month. Hence, I haven't actually been uploading many pictures on Instagram - the time has been just slipping away in house viewings, meeting mortgage advisors, checking mortgage offers, verifying our credit scores... Because oh yes, we are about to buy a house!

Our application is now at the mortgage underwriters, so hopefully everything will go OK, and we will move into our first house in April. Exciting! (Expect plenty of renovation /interior decoration posts in the future...). Sorting it all out has meant that I haven't had the chance to blog much either - in February I managed only seven posts. Hopefully March will be a bit better, although it is starting to look like March too will be a very busy month. But, anyway, on to the round-up. For the linky please scroll to the bottom.

1. We've been going out to play - we've dressed her up in some very practical rain gear so she can roll around in mud, like a little Peppa she is...
2. Working from home = PJs and your favourite tea mug. I've had a couple of luxurious days of working from home, I love it! I rarely work home, but due to a few dental, mortgage and doctor's appointments I've had a few this month. Not having to commute is great.
3. I do try to go for a walk during the lunch hour at work, and often walk around in St James's Park.
4. I also saw a black swan for the first time in my life! In St James's Park - I might go there again tomorrow to see if it is still hanging around there.

5. It was Valentine's this month. We had the Marks&Sparks Dine-in meal with some cava (it was tasty), and I got us matching onesies!
6. After our offer for the house was accepted I've been dreaming of all sorts of interior decorations - got some magazines for inspiration.
7. Many nights have been spent on the computer, a snack in hand, looking for mortgage deals, and other boring banking things in preparation for mortgage application.
8. After Valentine's we still had some spoils to cheer us up - a dozen of red roses and homemade chocolate dipped strawberries.
9. It was a busy month at work too, and I went to a conference which was held in an amazing palace in central London. Took so many pictures, and was pretty much constantly thinking "Wow".
10. The place reminded me of the Russian Palaces, like the Winter Palace in St Petersburg. I loved walking around in the rooms and wondering what it would have been like to live in a place like this. Pretty amazing!
