Well, here we are – back again – after a blogging break of almost two months!
We’ve needed the break to be able to regroup after a few events that shook us up a lil, and we’re still somewhat licking our wounds a bit and are trying realllly hard not to do that childish foot-stomping and yelling of – “it’s not fairrrr”….!!!
Whilst we were away, ‘Tuffy’ (our Mother / Mother-in-Law) took a bit of a tumble, and the events that followed resulted in her and her hubby moving into an Aged Care facility – which had been desperately needed for a while – but they were both very stubborn, and didn’t want to concede to what they saw – as defeat…
To make a long story pretty darn short, only a few short weeks after they moved in, Tuffy died.
We like to think that deep inside (despite her dementia) she knew that the Love of her life now had someone to care for him – because she hadn’t been able to for a long while – so on 11.06.18 at 92½ – Tuffy slipped away in the night with her amazing second-youngest daughter, at her bedside…
( Which we are eternally greatful for! <3 )
Throughout this – we had also had an ordeal with a contract on our house in town, however the potential buyer was causing us so much grief that we ended up choosing to terminate the contract, as it was causing more highly aggravated stress than not having a contract was causing us!
We now have another ‘interested party’ – and have all our appendages crossed that closer to the end of the month – we may be able to share some good news.
Please send good vibes our way!
So this week and over the weekend, we’ve been making a concerted effort to go through the rest of our ‘stuff’ that is still at the house, and toss/donate/sell whatever isn’t going to serve us in the future.
There is also some stuff that we’ll have to pack away for whatever reason, and so we’ve also been going through our shipping container at the Farm [aka ‘The Shed’] to see what’s in there that’ll go into the toss/donate/sell piles, to make room for the stuff that will be coming over from the house.
Once we get our feet back under ourselves properly again, we’ll get back to posting regularly again, and we’ll also put up some more posts of our Kiwi Adventures so that you can get a taste of what we got up to 🙂
Cant promise quite yet, just when that will BE tho – so please be patient…!
Hugs Y’all x
