… and Breathe!


The. Week. From. Hell.

This week I moved house, wrote 130 reports, marked 85 pieces of coursework, taught my lessons, spent several hours at the vets with my cat Daisy, who contracted conjunctivitis within just 18 hours of being in the new property and have done all this while still feeling quite ill. I’m exhausted. The Bloke has taken the week off and has rushed between the two houses to finish everything off and he’s done an amazing job. I don’t think that I could have got through the week without him. He looks exhausted too, bless him.

While I was initially upset to leave the old house, our new house is warmer and cosier and I have found that I have started to settle in quite quickly. The landlord seems nice too, which is certainly a bonus. I’m still angry that we have had to go through this, but I’m trying to view it from the idea that things happen for a reason.

However, I’m grateful that I have made it to the end of the week relatively unscathed and I have a lovely three days ahead of me where I am not required to do anything other than unpack boxes, go round and see our lovely neighbours from the old house and catch up with the blogging world. I’ve missed it so much! I’m worry for not replying to any of the comments you have left but I have read every one of them and I’m extremely grateful for your support.

I hope you’re all doing well…

  1. Wow, I hope you can get some good rest soon. Hope Daisy is doing better.

    That’s good to hear that you are settling in quickly too!

  2. Glad you can now take a wee breather. Remember to enjoy a little quiet time (maybe with Daisy curled up on your lap?) to just be. 🙂

  3. Poor Daisy! I hope she feels better soon and hope you continue to settle in comfortably. But yes, be sure to take a few minutes to take care of YOU. 🙂

  4. That sounds like a stressful week! I’ve had weeks in life like that before where I don’t know how I’m going to be able to cram everything in that I need to get done. I hope you enjoy your new house! 🙂

  5. This is such a long school term as it is Suzie without all this extra work and after your illness. Try to get some rest. And breathe. Must be due the Easter holidays too? Two weeks to go here. Hang on in. Hugs.x

  6. Moving is always a stressful time. As you say, Breathe! Take a nice deep breath, close your eyes and let your whole body relax as you exhale. Thinking of you and praying for patience and relaxation. Hope your cat is better soon too.
