I’ll be honest, I almost completely forgot to write this post. My little monthly round up post really snuck up on me, so much so that I had a whole other post planned for today. And then I realised that this is the last weekend in the month and I have to get my sh*t together.
It’s nearly the half way point in the year. How the flippin’ heck has that happened?! Although I claim in every single one of these posts that time is flying and I have no idea where it’s going and I’m getting so old blah blah blah. But I really know the reason why May has blown in and out like a passing tornado. And it’s because at the start of the month me and Dom received a repossession notice from our landlord. He’s got a new job and wants to move back in.
Now this isn’t something we could have seen coming, nor is it something we have done anything to cause, but I’ve got to say it was a bit of a slap in the face. We’re being kicked out of our home, effectively by a simple email. It’s left me in a bit of a pickle as to where I want my life to go now that we aren’t contractually obliged to live somewhere. Is it in Bristol? Or is it somewhere else? There have been tears and (minor)tantrums and a lot of trying to persuade Dom that we should just pack it all in and move to a foreign and preferably sunny country.
In the end what I chose to focus on is the fact that life does go quickly, and no, I’m not actually old, and another six months is really not a very long time. So consequently May has been taken up with scouring Rightmove, flat viewings, rejections from letting agents, missing out on other flats and yet more tears and tantrums. But here we are, now at the end of May with a new flat in the pipeline (fingers crossed!).
This time we have to buy our own furniture and I’m excited! Dom is having to hold me back from Ikea and the contract hasn’t even gone through yet. I want to sort out my belongings again and rid myself of a few things that no longer need to be in my life or on my shelves. I’m excited for summer and light, late evenings and sun. Really that’s all that matters. To be excited about things and looking forward to the future, even if some parts of the future seem a little cloudy at the moment. That’s just life, right?
