Sadly I lost my Nan Goodjohn last week, she was 86 and we thought she'd be around for ever. She was very strong willed, fun, stubborn, had a hot temper and always said what she thought, a lot like a fiery bombshell in a film noir. Its always heart breaking to lose a loved one. I'm trying not focus on her death but the life she lived. She had 2 daughters, 6 granddaughters, 3 great-granddaughters and 1 great-grandson! Thats a family FULL of women and I love it! When Lux was born the first person she reminded me of was my Nan Goodjohn and my Nan found that hilarious! Unfortunately they didn't get to meet but I'm positive that Lux will inherit the same strong willed and stubborn streak that we all have!
We also got the unsettling news (via text!) that we have to move out of our house within 2 months! That was a BIG shock and we only moved in 6 months ago! We never wanted to move with a small baby and I spent most of this week in tears and panic. In a weird twist of fate the house that we lived in before just came up for rent so we've decided to move back there! WEIRD!
So I'm left searching for that illusive silver lining and I've found that although its super stressful moving house (especially when you've got a small baby and a dog!) at least we're moving back to a place we liked (loads of cafes and shops around), we're paying the same amount of rent and we're all together.
Arrr, theres it is :)
Bye for now,
