Our Thursday Photo #22

This week has been well and truly exhausting. Lia appears to be teething so none of us have had any sleep (except for Libby, who would sleep through a nuclear war). I’ve ordered a Sophie the Giraffe for Lia, I’ve heard good things about them and I’m willing to try anything, so although I wouldn’t normally pay £12 for a teething toy, we’re desperate! Our house hunting has taken another interesting turn. Because I’m now self employed, my wages as it stands won’t be taken into consideration for a mortgage. They take the self employed average of the last two tax…

This week has been all about decisions. We’ve booked an appointment for someone to come and put our house on the market on Tuesday, but we really can’t find anywhere that we like the look of to move to. I’m making an appointment to see someone at a nice little local school where rumour has it we might be able to get Libby a place even if we don’t live in the catchment area. Unfortunately I’ve heard these rumours too many times already so I’m not holding out too much hope. We’ll try anything though because we’d love to be…

This week we have been deliberating and agonising over what to do about school for Libby. We don’t want her to go to the local school where we live at the moment, and this would be our catchment area. The only way to guarantee that she will get into a nice school is to move house. We love the house that we live in, it’s a great location, close to family and it’s just coming together as we want it. Ultimately though, the school that Libby goes to is too important to take a risk on, so we have reluctantly…

I’m struggling to believe that it’s Thursday again already, it only seems five minutes ago I was posting last week’s photo from my phone. We came home from our holiday on Monday, having all had a fabulous week. Libby’s speech is developing every day, and she is at a stage now where she generally talks perfect sense, so the odd word of utter nonsense or silly mistake can be really entertaining. Here are a few examples from this week: Libby: I want to go on the radiator. Dad: The radiator? Libby: Yes, I want to go on the radiator (points…

On time with my post today, but posting from my phone as we’re on holiday in sunny Pembrokeshire. Camping with two smalls is exceptionally hard work, but we are managing and enjoying the change of scenery. In particular, Libby has enjoyed the beach and a boat ride, hubby is enjoying being of work and spending time with the girls and the dogs are getting plenty of fresh air and walking. For me, I’ve loved the change of running scenery. I managed to run down to the beach yesterday, have a short swim across the cove and back and then run…
