New in Northampton: I’m Back!

Hello hello hello…I am back online and now writing from lovely Northampton! I am relatively settled into my new place with the boyf and ready to start our new life here. It has been a rather mental week to say the least, the house was not up to scratch, I have been suffering from a nasty virus, I have hardly slept and of course there is the stress of moving and being broke. Ahh…such is the joy of moving house. But mustn’t grumble too much as there is lots to enjoy in the new house and I get to live with the boyf, hoorah!

Tiny little sneak peek (more to follow soon)

A big massive huge thank you to my wonderful Guest Bloggers this past week. How amazing were they?! If you missed out you can catch up here:

Carrie -> Tips for Low-Fund Foraging (a charity shop guide)

Kat -> Floral and Stripes Outfit

Lisa -> What’s in my Handbag?

Zoe -> Confessions of a Thriftaholic

Kaite -> My Style Bible

Rachel -> The Clothes Collector


Gosh, where to start on catching up?! Well, first of all I have still been blogging at Domestic Sluttery so pop over and have a gander there. And I’ll be blogging more later on the WIWT party I attended last night and the new Three Jelly Moulds and a Wardrobe shop update.

Phew….busy times! How are you dear readers? What have I missed? Share you links to any lovely blog posts you have written recently, I need a good catch up.

    Congrats! Hope you’re feeling better and settling in!
    That must be the lift testing tower, no?

    I know and like Northampton , from cruising on our boat along the River Nene and up the Northampton Flight to the Grand Union Canal. Hope you enjoy living there!

    Love the fireplace, have you made any progress with the radiators?

    Congrats on the new place – I’d say it’s definitely Isengard out of the window.

    I have the same Victorian fireplace – obviously put in after my 30s house was built!

    Blogwise, I made a spookily accurate quiz to discover what kind of blogger you are/should be, in a kind of Cosmopolitan magazine stylee.

    Hope the move was smooth for you. It never fails to rain on moving day for me!!
    Hope you feel better soon, I’ve got a nasty chest infection – had no voice for 5 days!! just little squeaky noises!
