What I’ve been up to

So, I read somewhere that bloggers shouldn’t apologise for a delay in posts. But I’m thinking they meant when it’s been a few days, not something like six months!

So, I’m sorry. We moved, and that was really stressful as the workmen who’d done some fixes to the house before we moved in had accidentally pinched an electric cable and nobody noticed until all our stuff was moved in! So we had to move to my mum’s house while they tore up all the floorboards looking to find the problem. (Not going to lie, it felt like a pretty good time to be a renter).

Then, our new teeny weeny house is so perfect for us and where we are in our lives right now, but it’s also pretty modest and has a horrendously ugly kitchen, so while I’ve been enjoying making it a cosy neat, nothing really feels blog worthy. Which is fine! I just thought I’d warn y’all that Annabel Vita is probably going to be a little more focused on sewing from here on out, with (even) less house stuffs.

But! That said, I haven’t even got my sewing machine out in the five months since we moved, as not long afterwards we learnt that somebody else would be joining us for the ride…

(Sorry for the dark picture! It’s also a little out of date now, but oh well! Imagine me a little tubbier…)

So that’s fun! We have a little baby boy due to join us in July and we are SO excited!

I’ve got my energy back now and am feeling a lot better than I was for the first few months (I didn’t even have the energy to find my sewing machine in all the boxes still unpacked), plus I feel ready to get sewing some bits and pieces for the baby.

So that’s what’s new with me. Thanks for sticking around!
