Hello ... remember me 😃
Sorry I've been away sooooo long, it's been a tough couple of weeks. We officially moved into our new homes on the 3rd July, which seems like a lifetime ago. With my ongoing back pain and now blood pressure problems I have been doing everything s o s l o w l y it's been unbearably hard for someone that is used to cracking on and just getting things done.
Hopefully I will be able to get back to regular blogging once we have gotten this weekend out of the way. We are completely emptying the flat over the next few days, I say we but it's mostly Alan doing the lifting and shifting with me sat like pained-face royalty issuing instructions.
There's only bits left but bits nevertheless and they do need bringing here ... especially my boxes of tinned and packeted foods. All but the large bookshelves we have now sold on Facebook Marketplace, with the little sofa being picked up just last night. We have a cleaning company coming in next week for an end-of-tenancy clean and then I will hand the keys over early and hopefully get my deposit back. I have plans for the money 😉
My kitchen is almost complete, I am just awaiting delivery of an upright piece, a small section of worktop and my oven ... but excitingly with my new hob came a free gift, I say free in the loosest sense of the word as the little multi-functional hob cost an arm and a leg as far as I'm concerned. But I'm getting used to it and it cooks food as it should, if I press all the right buttons in all the right order!!
And with it being an induction hob only certain pans will actually work on it. I was thinking about streamlining my pan collection anyway ... now I have no choice 😄
I'm taking full advantage of any useful spaces that I have in this tiny annexe that I now call home, so the shelf under the combi-boiler has been requisitioned as my tool and bits and pieces cabinet.
And Ginger has claimed the off-cut of sleeper to have as his evening vantage point. As you can see in the top photo all the animals have settled in extremely well, having their own outdoor space once again and the day-long access to both Mum and Dad's homes has made them very happy and relaxed indeed.
Happy animals = happy us.
Oh, and as you will have noticed from the new header the name of my new abode is - Lavender Lodge. Which ties me neatly back to my roots and my beloved little shop in Ulverston where I sold lavender plants and goodies of all descriptions.
