Knitting with the Monsters...

My life with two toddlers and two cats, all of whom are out to drive me nuts and destroy my knitting!

New Computer!!!

Well obviously I'm here on our new computer. IT came yesterday and we're still playing with all the new gadgets and widgets (literally)!

Have made some progress and almost have a FO so stay tuned! Also if I get loads of free time (so probably not), I might inspect the iWeb and get a new look for my blog...

On the house front they say 6 weeks but it's been 8 already since the original offer was made. It's been even longer since we found this house and viewed it the first time... At the end of it all it'll have taken us probably 5 months since first finding this house and seeing it for the first time. I've never bought a house before so I don't know the games that people play, but thus far it's been a thoroughly UNenjoyable experience. People can be so awful and selfish and just plain arseholes and the people who are selling us the house better hope to never see us again, is all I can say, because one the sale is completed if I meet them, I'll be telling them off.

I'll probably not blog again for a while as the mood here in both the flat and in my head is pretty dismal. Usually when DH is home we manage about 2-3 waking hours before the squabbling then fighting kicks in. We're all pretty much at a pretty low point and all I can say is I can't wait for our vacation in August which is more than likely going to be a week or two after we move in. Oh joy, we'll NEED the vacation, or we'll need a divorce lawyer. God help us.

It's awful how these stressful situations can affect relationships. We're also suffering from stress, as our new business only has a certain amount of time left to work before our money runs out completely! It's been like this for two years and we have until the end of this year. The business is building every day, but not quickly enough. Lucky for me it's my OH that's calm and coping well. I'm the highly-strung one.

Anyway, I'm glad things are moving, housewise. Sounds like it might be just in time.

In the meantime you must keep in mind all the things you love about you-know-who and the fact that you are under stress, you will rise above it, ride it out and soon - things will get better. Just hold on there!

Hi there. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog.

I know it's easier said than done but don't let the stress get to you. House moves in the UK takes a LONG time, just be prepared. Just think you'll get lots more space soon - hopefully including a dedicated craft room/space.

Where are you moving to? If you are in my bit of town (Chiswick), we should meet up.

Hi there again.
Just wanted to let you know that location wise, I'm in West London and you're in Central moving to South East London. I do know Sydenham as I had a friend who lived there.

I laughed out loud at your story!! Children!!

My hubby is away again this week (Thurs -Sun). But I'm a bit housebound (just had surgery on my knee). If you fancy venturing west, let me know. Bring children, knitting, etc.
