What I've been up to in 2021 during my blogging break

Well hasn't it been a while!

While internet will never miss one woman, I've missed writing my blog. But alas, time (or rather, the lack of it) is the issue. So I took a somewhat unplanned five month blog break. I've been more active over on my Instagram, which is a bit quicker and easier to update.

During that blog break I have been, and we have been busy. In that time we have done lots of big house renovations - a roof replacement, two sky lights put in, windows replaced, house exterior painted, a total bathroom renovation with new pipes put in, oh, and a new boiler. There are still some small niggling issues to sort in the house and after they have been sorted the next renovation plan is to tackle the garage and garden. I am very much looking forward to all of this finishing as it is a major pain in the arse and disruptive in every way possible. While living in a period house has its moments, it is a lot of hard work. 

There was of course homeschooling too during the third lockdown. Less said about that the better ha ha! 

Now that places are again opening up I have been busy booking us all kinds of places. Our Saturdays are fully booked until July actually - and I've already booked a few August and Christmas things too! Museums, English Heritage places, weekend trips, art exhibitions - all kinds. Feeling like I may have gone a bit overboard after being limited to our Local Authority area too long, nice and green that it is, I have still missed going to the Big Smoke. 

Now that I am finally back here writing, which to be honest, I really have missed, I'm looking forward to writing about all the things we are starting to get up to, as well as finally finishing the dozens and dozens of drafts I have lingering in my folders... 

And if I do manage to get to the bottom of my draft bin you might find some very non-current content such as the monthly baby development pictures I took of my now three year old daughter that I was meant to publish and then, just never did. We shall see! On more current things there is our visit to the Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Sky Garden, Wrest Park, Audley End and so on, so on - all lovely places and fun days out I'd love to share!
