Today was a great day. We don’t get them often, but F and I had a lovely date day. Because of our current living situation, we are literally smack dab in the woods. This being the case, means going out for a meal, or doing… anything… is almost impossible. It has to be a conscious effort, to get out of the house and leave, to do something for a day. Because of this, there is no longer any room for spontaneity.
Today, after about 5 months of dragging my feet I finally painted the gravestone of my parent’s dog. It’s not that I didn’t want to do it, I did, he was a good dog… it’s that, I’ve done all the gravestones for all the family pets and it makes it so permanent. Today was easier than I would have expected, but still heart breaking.
No I didn’t purchase these item, instead they are saved in a lovely bookmark folder for “to buy later”. I consider myself pretty frugal as a person. My husband would likely disagree, but honestly if he even realized half the stuff I save as a “for later” buy, he would change his tune. I’m overwhelming obsessed with lapel pin collecting, so there’s going to be more than one, here and future. Sorry if you hate lapel pins! Here are some of my favorite saves for the month.
This time last year, we packed up our beautiful life in San Francisco, naively believing that we’d be moving to England (my husband’s home country) shortly after. We moved in with my parents, as a sort of temporary stopping point. Problem is a year later,we are still here. I think parts of both of us thought it would be this easy process, first world country, to first word country. Well it has not been. It’s actually be a sort of disaster, that’s lead to a real slump of both of our moods.
My name is Goblin.
Ok not really, but thats what you can call me. I’m a twenty something, cat mother & wife [insert something mushy about spouses here]. I am a major vegan junk food enthusiast. I love to cook, even if my other half wishes he didn’t have to stomach it. I am completely obsessed with interior design, even if my eyes are bigger than my wallet. I love setting myself unrealistic goals, just for the fun of thinking about it. I am by no means a professional writer. I didn’t even finish college (art school drop out). If my grammar is a mess, I wouldn’t be shocked, so neither should you, but I am always open to corrections!
My life is kind of a mess, but it’s mine and I wouldn’t really change it at all. Currently we are mid moving from California to England, in the most drawn out process, my naive self was not prepared for. This blog is to be an outlet for all the major transitions at hand. But to be clear from the start, I love my life, I am so happy and grateful it’s mine. Unfortunately for all my friends and family, I’m just kind of a bumbling disaster of a person figuring it out.
