things are looking up 🌞

My last couple of posts have been a bit negative nancy so I thought I should focus on and write about the great things that have happened lately.  Firstly, my husband and I have made a deadline for when we get outta here (my mum’s).  Its in 3 months – end of May-  as long as all goes well with getting a loan and finding the right place.  We decided that a deadline is what we needed to keep ourselves sane enough to continue being here and it allow us to plan and knuckle down to save enough for our new place.  Our relationship has definitely benefited from this and we are doing well.

Secondly, I sold a dreamcatcher I made on etsy!! It is my first sale and I am so excited and motivated by this.  It has spurred me on to make more pretties and work harder at getting new things into my shop more often.  Today I went and bought a few more hoops to make more dreamers as I didn’t have any to make new ones.  Here is a pic of my packaged and ready to send dreamcatcher.

first sale

I added a handful of little crystals and a shell and silver mermaid to the package for something a little extra to say thankyou to the buyer.  I really hope she loves it, I put so much love into these and it is always scary to put yourself out there and be open to judgement.

Thirdly, and very excitingly, we traded in Brett’s mazda and bought a new(ish) car!!! It’s a 2012 Toyota RAV4 and it is in immaculate condition and very very low kms for its age and has 3 year warranty as well as lots of other little perks.  We are so happy about it and it is going to be perfect for all of the driving that we do and for going to the snow.  I am totally in love with it and so is Brett.  It also has enough room for another bub if we are lucky enough to be blessed again.  We decided to do this as the mazda was needing quite a bit of work and was getting quite old and had done over 300000kms. It kind of ends up cheaper for us just to buy this and spend only $80 a week on the repayments rather than spend thousands trying to fix up the mazda.  Anyway, here it is…..

new car

thanks for reading…. I will probably be posting pics of all our little trips in this baby from now on! hahahah ✌

wow,that was a bad day.

I should have stayed home, I even said to my mum that I didn’t want to go anywhere today but I did because today is swimming lesson day for Lennox.  So I leave the house and drive to swimming, I had trouble getting a park near the pool thanks to council works so I parked much further away.  I was not feeling very good so I thought I would pick up a coffee on the way.  Lennox was a bit whingey and I was trying to get her and her swimming bag out of the car and I locked my bag containing my car keys, wallet and phone in the car.  My head was just not right today.  So anyway, after some attempts to break into my own car by myself and some lovely strangers, I decided I would have to join up for roadside assistance $180!! and get them to come and open my car as I had no choice 😭. I did get to have that coffee though we didn’t make it to swimming unfortunately.

It is also my mum’s birthday today and my husband’s on saturday, so I wanted to pick up a nice present for them today…. I chose an expensive perfume for my mum and asked to have it gift wrapped – it looked really nice. I gave it to mum and she opened it, and it wasn’t the perfume I chose at all!!! Now I have to go back and try and get an exchange even though it has been opened.  OMG I should have stayed home. 🎻

valentines day sucked

I hope everyone had a better day than me for valentines day, mine was awful and I am just so exhausted by it.  It didn’t really matter that it was Valentines day, it was just a crap day.  My husband and I argued all day.  We have been arguing a lot in the last couple of months and this environment is really taking its toll on us.  This is really getting me down and I have really lost a lot of motivation and don’t want to do anything except sleep the day away – although I am not sleeping well at all lately.  I can’t spend the day doing that though as I have my precious little toddler keeping me up and at em 😍.   Hopefully things improve between us and he stops being so irritable at me,  I hope our relationship gets stronger when the going gets tough and doesn’t fall apart.  💔
