January 2019 Goal Results

Hi Everyone, 

Its almost the end of the longest month of the year! 



We've almost made it out alive.  





I haven't blogged a-lot in the past week as I've been feeling a little under the weather mentally... I think it is hard for a-lot of people at this time of year .... the nights are dark, its cold, people are broke from Christmas and I always find it a little depressing when you realise that Christmas and the festive fun are over. 




We have a bit of snow though... 


I have been coming home from work, eating dinner and hiding under a blanket either catching up on a mountain of TV or gaming. 

We've got quite a cosy little set up in the living room and when the permanent furniture and carpets are in, its going to be incredible.

To be honest I have also been busy adulting and getting stuff together in the house. I will write a post about this but basically, Luke and I are in the process of updating, paying off and upgrading the stuff in the new house. 
I thought it would be scary.…

Discovering Wellingborough : Sywell

Hello Everyone! 
So I thought that I would create a new series for the blog. 
I have just moved to Wellingborough, but I have no idea about anything that resides in it. So I thought that I would do a little series on my discoveries. 
Our first adventure was Sywell Country Park. 


Luke and I worked out that its only five minutes away from our house
As you know, in the old flat we had a park on our doorstep so we miss being able to go for random walks when we feel like we need to escape. 


The park has a massive lake, forest area and green fields surrounding it. After spending five years in the town centre, I'd forgotten how much I have missed open green spaces. 
I grew up in village areas, and moving to closed tight spaces was a real culture shock. 
The new house backs on to farmland, I see it when I leave and come home from work and I absolutely love it.  I also can see the stars at night as there is no light pollution. Its just wonderful.




We found a massive tree in the middle that reminded …

Its Time For The First Post Of 2019!

Hellooooo Everyone, 
Happy New Year!  (It's still ok to say that right?)
I thought that it was time to come back to the Hideaway after a New Year break / Adjustment period in the new house. 

I have to admit that I had forgotten how much organisation and energy a house move took, not only that but we decided to do it in the festive period... which again is a busy and exhausting time. 
Since January 1st, we have been finding our rhythm and getting into various routines, with work, the cats, unpacking, exploring etc. 
This has meant that time has been flying and by the time I come to sit down to write.... my brain is tired and I find that my eyes are closing. 

It doesn't help that it is dark in the mornings and dark at nights as well. I'm less productive in the Winter.

But its time to come back. 
Times actually a rather weird concept.... We spent months waiting for news, having weekends and evenings drag , 
to now in which they have starting flying again. We actually began to hate …
