Where was I hiding….

31 05 2012

So as I alluded to recently I took quite the break from blogging…nearly a whole year.

Obviously this was a momentous event on par with anything mentioned in Revelations and no doubt had the great and the good gnashing their teeth and wondering what had happened…

Well in a nutshell life happened…

My parents divorced.

I moved house THREE times!! (Most recently to here) How the heck did that happen?

I changed jobs, still an IT nerd though!

I purchased my first ever convertible(MGF VVTi) and my first ever BMW (520i), closely followed by my second(325i)

I met C ❤

I read Song of Ice and Fire

I realised that trust is for idiots… then had my mind changed for me.

I officially changed my name

I wrote and wrote and wrote… and then wrote some more

Not really exciting I will grant you but all perfectly valid reasons as to why I more or less forgot about my blog…here is hoping for a somewhat less hectic next 12 months!

The new house

9 05 2012

So in one of the crazier things  I have done recently I convinced herself to move house last week.

Now just to set the scene and lessen how weird I sound I should mention that moving had sort of been up for discussion for a while…..just not really in this fashion.

We had just been going through the motions really, you know how it is. A few minutes day dreaming on Daft.ie, a couple of visits to completely random houses. Nothing concrete.

Then boom! I saw my dream house.

I really, really didn’t think that C would be interested in it. Our tastes in property are normally wildly different, she likes trendy new houses and I like rambling country estates where you could set a remake of an Austin novel.

Still I decided to send her a link to it anyway just for a laugh. Next thing I know my mobile is ringing, “I’M IN LOVE! I have called the letting agents and we are going to look round it tonight at 5”

That was Tuesday 1st May…. somehow between then and Saturday we found ourselves handing over a stupidly large deposit and moving in, how is that for hasty!

So here in all it’s ridiculous Georgian glory is the house that has made two normally sane, rational adults go more than a little bit ga ga… Underhill House

Oh and yes, the nerd in me is stupidly pleased at the silly little reference to the Lord of the Rings in the house name 😀
