It turns out this mortgage stuff is incredibly stressful, and we are into the final week of hustling to get it exchanged in time. It is stressful because it is beyond my control.
So for this week, this is my calming mantra.
Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.

Hello there tumblr friends!
My complete apologies for my horrible absence. I have found the new tumblr system a bit frustrating, and it has put me off doing any kind of post for some time.
However, as winter approaches, I thought it might be a nice time to show you my nest. We’ve made some changes this year - rearranged furniture, decluttered, and donated many things to charity - and it has improved my quality of living 100%
Here are some pictures. There are still things to do, but nothing that we’re not looking forward to.
And a photo of Bombino, because I am certain you have missed her:
