The MONTH That Was: July

So there it all is! In no particular order, because that's how my scrambled brain remembers things ;)

During July, there was a lot of Oreo doing things- sneaking porridge from my bowl, watching for visitors, climbing into and out of boxes, chilling out- and of course a lovely visit to the vet! He's all good now but he did give us a scare towards the end of the month.

PK and I also did some chilling out of our own, while also preparing for PK's big Air Race by holding some sausage sizzles to fundraise- this involved chopping lots and lots and LOTS of onions. Our entire house smelled like onions for about a week! That was, until we started pulling up carpet and painting...

As you can see there was also quite a bit of yummy food- a successful experiment with Asian-influenced chicken noodle soup, a fun breakfast treat, planting some mint (ready for mojitos!) and a little bit of take-away food too. We also celebrated our anniversary with a delightful dinner out, something we don't do nearly enough!

July also brought a lot of activity, whether we were inside the house (starting those final touches ready for the house sale), outside the house in the sunshine or out with friends. I started playing netball again, something that I had been wanting to do for some time but couldn't because of shift work- so you can bet that I was happy about that! Even if I was a little disappointed that I now have to trim my nails back every week!

I think that more or less covers it all, July was quite busy though, as was August (soon to be posted) and September is shaping up to be another hectic month too! If you have any questions about a particular pic, let me know and I'll describe it more in the comments :)

No, Seriously?

It's September?? How the heck did that happen? Last I looked we were cruising along nicely through June and all of a sudden it's frickin SEPTEMBER?!?! That sh*t Kray!

Umm no excuses for that, sorry guys! I've been lazily working on figuring out a way to post all of July's 365 Days a Year pics in one post, so as not to draw it out too much- I guess I need to now add August's pics to that project now too, hmm?

You may ask what's been happening with the sale of the house... you know, after the big reveal and all, right? Well, mainly PK and I have waited. And see-d. And put up with the torture of a few jam-packed weekends of home opens. And private viewings during the week too! Our real estate agent has really worked hard to make sure both sales were going to happen- remember, our offer on the new house was subject to the sale of Muriel!

We did have a couple of bites, but no real takers... for the first 11 days anyway!! Yep, that's right, we were officially on the market for only 11 days before some beautiful, kind, happy people made an offer that PK and I could comfortably accept! And accept we did :)

So that of course meant that PK could safely go off on his around the country outback adventure, no worries right? Well, not exactly- we still had to wait. And wait. And. wait. For the word that the buyer's finance approval had come through... and without that finance approval, the offer would have to be retracted, the house would have to go back on the market and our offer 'subject to sale' on the new place could plausibly fall through. Oh and there is still my day job to reckon with. And a wedding to plan that seems to be getting closer too quickly! So, no pressure or anything!

But, never fear PK said, I'll be home before you know it! And off he went...
