I have been a bit out of sorts this week (pre-menstrual), and the stress levels of moving (and excitement) have dropped and I am a bit low, and also a bit bored. Oscar does not have a nursery place here, although they said maybe October, and the weather has been rubbish so we are pretty much in or out quickly.
There is still a lot to do in the house but energy and finances dictate the pace of that. My back (degenerative disk disorder) has been really bad since we moved and I have concluded that a better chair and a better mattress are definitely needed (with whopping price tags). This means that soft furnishing, paint and nik-naks are on hold for now.
Our eating habits had lapsed into the 'really bad' zone so I have been concentrating on meal planning and buying the best we can afford. This often means organic and local food (which gobbles up the pennies too), which makes me feel a whole lot better about the meals I am serving up. There is a really nice green grocers 5 minutes away and they also stock some of my other favourites (Marigold Bullion Powder, Belvoir Cordial, and an organic seed selection).
Things in general have been pretty much the same old same old then, cooking, cleaning, laundry, Lego, stories, drawing and the odd bit of beach, park and garden fun.
Some pictures, because blogs with no pictures are dull.
