I feel like this blog is just become an endless update of lists – oops. (I do love a list tho). Here’s what’s been going on over the past few months, in a sort of…list format? You’ll never change me, apparently.
First up, the big news: we’re in the midst of buying a house. Or trying to, at least. It’s a long, mostly boring, often stressful process of which we know little about. People don’t tend to tell you the ins and outs so we’re nearly always in the dark about what we need to do and when we need to do it by. If we ever do actually get to move I’ll be sure to mention it but at the moment it’s all completely up in the air. Fun*. (*Not fun).
Life has been busy but quiet. I’ve had a lot of time to read and to think. We’ve had a big spring clean and given a hell of a lot of stuff to charity – partly because I don’t want to take it all with us when we move and party because the mantra of “have less, do more, be more” seems to have taken up permanent residence in my head.

It’s a nice one, right? I’ve taken a pleasant satisfaction from paring down our stuff to only the things that we actually love and use. Now I need to work on the do more, be more portion. Suggestions gratefully received.
I’m listening to more music than before – new and old – which is a welcome change and something I didn’t even realise I was missing. I’ll put together my new favourites in a playlist at some point because sharing the love is something I’m always willing to do more of
I downloaded the Moves app last week and have been so ashamed at my lack of activity, ha. It tracks how many steps you’ve taken (as long as you have your iPhone with you) – so far my personal best is just over 5000 in a day, which is ridiculous. The weather is getting less severe now that spring is finally on it’s way in so I’m going to try and start a lunch time walking routine a few times a week. Bye bye sloth existence – I’ll miss you.
I’m going to leave you with this, which I’m listening to right now and enjoying very much. I have no idea how to end blog posts any more – Twitter and tiny lists of things have got me out of the habit. Must do better…
