Celebrate The Small Things: 8 July

Our offer got accepted on a house. It’s a really nice house too. In good condition and a great location. It also has a large garden; I’m excited about finally have some outdoor space that I can do what I want with. I’m relieved that we’re settled on a place now so that I can start to adjust to the idea of where I’m going to end up. I didn’t much enjoy house hunting.

I’m still drawing a lot at the moment to help me to relax. Looking at old sketchbooks has also spurred me on. Even though I stopped practising during university I was surprised to see that I had still improved over that time. It’s a skill I keep coming back to because there is always the need to create or modify assets on the side of other projects. I aimed to draw every day this week and have managed to keep at it. I’ve also corrected the grip on my pencil and have noticed an immediate improvement in my drawings. This in turn leaves me feeling encouraged that I can still get a lot better yet.

I’ve gotten back into Tibia. It’s been my goal to reach level 100 in that game for a long time, and the expiry date on an experience voucher has caused me to return. I’ve moved from level 91 to 95 this week. My timing is also good as they’re boosting experience over the weekend. This always seems to happen when I return.


Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.

      Thanks, I’m eager to get the move sorted now so we can start settling in. I’m waiting around knowing my life is going to change in a big way soon, but I can’t do anything at the moment.

      Unfortunatley a few of us have ended up moving at once and the circumstances for this have only gone and added to the stress. My life feels like it’s on hold for the time being until we all settle into our new places. Things will be much better once we have though :).

    We were lucky with our house hunting. We found the right one after only a few trips out with the realtor. At one house, my husband broke a window frame and the cover to the fuse box, so we knew that one was a dud.

      We found that we could tell right away if it was right. It just felt right when you walked in and we found ourselves making plans for the space as soon as we left.
