It’s been a busy few weeks in the Wambugu household! It seems all the time I usually spend on the blog has been spent elsewhere these days. Here’s a quick update on what’s been keeping me busy (and away from blogging!).
Jesse and I are doing a family budgeting exercise, which has been a lot of work! We’d like to be saving more money than we are, so we’re tracking our expenses, and trying to figure out where we can change our spending habits. It’s time consuming, but it’s also such an interesting, eye-opening experience!
I’ve also been going to the gym (something Jesse wishes I would blog about, but I don’t feel entirely ready to expose that part of my life yet!), and have unfortunately suffered a couple of annoying injuries. So, between hours at the gym and hours spent at the physiotherapist, my cherished mornings of alone-time while the girls are at school have all but disappeared!
Finally, Jesse and I have been on the lookout for a new house. We actually LOVE where we live, but the rental increases have been over-the-top in the last few years, and (as our budgeting exercise has shown), we’d love to reduce our rent and use some of that money elsewhere. House hunting is exhausting! And often disappointing… But we’ve got a few more houses on the docket to visit and hopefully we’ll find something in our budget that we like! (While I’m at it, feel free to let me know if you know of any gems!)
So, my sincere apologies for dropping the ball on blogging. I promise to get back of the swing of things as soon as I can! In the meantime, if you’re in a blog reading mood, feel free to check out some of these oldies-but-goodies:
