Just fabulous

Well, things fell apart.

In fairness, it was all down to us. We brought on on our own sadness, but have the clearest feeling that we did the right thing in the end. After a long period of doubt about whther this was the right decicion, a couple of details lead us to make some difficult calls and the house is no longer on the cards. It all came down to potential strcutural problems and lack of paperwork to back it up. It just didn't feel right, and when one is about to commit to such a huge sum of money, one thinks twice. Then weeps at the thought that, yes, it took sooooo long to get there! Boo hoo.
And so we're back to square one, only this time armed with valuable experience of what to ask and what to look out for.
But that doesn't take away the heartache. Or the crushing feelings that everything within commuting distance of London is unattainable.
 I could go on and on, but have decided to stay positive, and cross fingers for 1) winning Euromillions or 2) the housing market to suddenly crash and leave us in a marvellous position to buy.

So, on to fabulousness. Inspired by so many pretties on Pinterest lately, I had a go at designing my own daily planner sheet. Nothing too fancy for a first go, but I kinda like it.
I was a bit sceptical about using it first, but it's turned out to be great and really helped me focus on making the most of my days, especially days off. I've designed it to suit my personal needs, with a small "to do" list but including a "make and bake" on its side. The middle section is all about health, and I've realised how much more water I ought to drink everyday since using it. The bottom of the sheet is something for me, like doing my nails or just reading a magazine for 15 minutes, and something for others, like treating Baby to a little session at the Softplay or remembering to send a birthday card.
 When I use it, I fill it in as early as possible in the day and it's a great incentive to get things done quickly and not leave them till the next day. All in all, a fabulous tool. I'm now getting supplies in to take it up to the next level and make an even more fabulous planner for 2016.

Well that's it for today folks. Speak soon. Off to research houses ;)
