Word of the Week: Stressful!

The Move

Little T’s room has now been turned into a storage room.  For the past week, she’s been sleeping with me on our bed and the husband has been sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge.  He likes to get up first thing in the morning to see to his emails without having to disturb T.

We’re down to the basics in the kitchen since most of the things have been packed away.  We’re ready to move on the 22nd.  Hopefully nothing goes wrong, though I’ve heard of horror stories of things going wrong on the day of the move.  A friend of ours found out that his buyer backed out a day before his scheduled move.  I’m confident that won’t happen to us, simply because we know our buyer personally and she has assured us time and again that she won’t do this to us (especially since she knows what went wrong with the first buyer).  We trust her.

In spite of this, things have been rather stressful.  I can’t wait till this is all over and I’m busy unpacking and choosing new wardrobes and other essentials.

Lovely Weather

In other news, the weather has been so good this week.  Although I wasn’t able to enjoy it outdoors, apart form last Monday when we had dinner out (refer to previous post), since my knee is still hurting but hopefully, all will be better next week and the weather will still be fab.

Little T

It’s Sports Relief day today at T’s school.  She’s dressed as a gig-rower, just like her dad.  But insisted on wearing her gymnastics hoodie which she wore last year.  But she’s proud of her badges and I don’t blame her.

Boots the Prodigal Cat

Boots is slowly getting used to being home with us.  She’s fidgety during the day and has been demanding to be let out, but we ignore her, till of course she decides to use my laptop as a step to look out the window:


At night, she likes to wake me up with her purring.  She’ll flop over next to us and then change her mind, waking me up again with the sound of a loud thump on the floor.  She has gained a lot of weight you see, at least I know the old woman fed her well.

As for Doc, he is eager to be her friend.  But Boots likes to give her the “You move and you die!” look.

It’s finally Friday folks!  Phew another week has ended.

Do you have anything lovely planned for the weekend?
