I’ve been struggling with blogging recently. I think it’s the fact that I’m feeling a lot of blog envy and I hate the feeling. You see I’ve been blogging since 2006 and I have a core group of people that read my blog- mostly family!! Hi guyz, love you!! The thing I can’t figure out is how to get others to read my blog. Do I need to comment even more? Are my posts really really boring?? Please don’t answer that last question!! Anyhoo it bums me out a little bit and I hate that it bums me out!
Okee dokee back to normal blogging crap. It’s half term here in Manchester so Squidge and I don’t have any activities planned. Wal is back from Turkey- yipee. It’s been drizzling for days and days now so we’re stuck in the house.
We’re going to view a townhouse tomorrow. It’s the one I posted a while back. We decided that it gives us more room for about the same price as remodeling (which wouldn’t give us any more rooms just make one room bigger). There are loads of down sides to the property. The main problem is that I really want a HUGE house. Only problem is I’m too cheap to go into major debt for it. Also I found a house that I LOVE (at least on paper) but it’s about 50-75k too expensive *sigh*. The good thing we have on our side is that it’s a buyers market at the moment. We also don’t have to sell our current house- we’re going to take the equity to buy the new house and rent this one out. So it’s a win win situation as far as I can see. Now lets all keep our fingers crossed that I (and Wal) will fall in love with the townhouse.
On a more disgusting note- Squidge is driving me a bit crazy with her poo’s. The girl is poo’ing about 6 times a day. Oooh how I wish that was an exaggeration. I posted on a parenting forum and the consensus is that I’m giving her too much fruit and veg! WTF!! Now I will admit that I’ve been giving her prunes (2/3 every couple of days) but that does not account for the number and volume of poopy nappies!! OKee I’m done with the poopy talk.
