I'm a #BadBlogger.
It's been a whirlwind couple of months of buying our first home and getting a puppy!
Yes. I think we are a bit crazy.
I decided to have a few weeks off Blogging simply because of the craziness of daily life at the moment as there just doesn't seem to be enough hours of the day to complete anything!
Thank you so much for all your patients, but I'm officially back!

What have we done?
Tom and I have been together for nearly 4 Years and have been saving for our first home together for about 2 Years. We thought we'd need a couple more years of saving until we had a big enough deposit to purchase our first home but in late September we noticed the perfect house had come on the market in a local town called Uppingham for a really, really great price.
So.. We bought it!

It was much, much less than we'd originally planned to spend on our first home but it was just so perfect.
A little Victorian Cottage built in 1890 with quirky features and original wooden floors and doors set over 4 floors. It needed a bit of work doing to it but we couldn't miss the opportunity of buying this house and spending money on it to update it a little, restore the original features and make it ours.
So that's exactly what we've been doing!

It's not finished yet, in fact work has just began however we should (fingers crossed!) be in for Christmas.
I'm going to share the journey weekly on my Blog showing your the changes and work being down to create our perfect first home.

A Puppy too?
Again, yes we are crazy.
A house and a puppy at the same time, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

It's been my dream for 10 Years to have Pug one day.
Years of driving my parents crazy with constant persuasion and tears.
But I was only allowed one when I moved out.
So, after years and years and finally moving out, that's exactly what I did.

This is Arla.
Our now 12 Week Old little teeny tiny Pug puppy, and she's perfect.
We got her when she was 8 Weeks and 2 Days Old.
She's full of character, loves cuddles and has what we call 'Crazy Pug Time' every evening from around 8pm for about an hour.
'Crazy Pug Time' consists of ears back, tail down and running -faster than you thought a pug ever could - round and round and round a room for no apparent reason on and off for ages.
She's just so funny.
You can follow @ArlaThePug on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

What's to come?
Now I'm back you'll have 2 Blog Posts a week again, every Wednesday and Sunday evening.
No slacking! Promise.
As I mentioned before, they'll be a Weekly House Update on the Progress and Plans.
First House Update coming this Sunday evening.
Also, as it's Christmas they'll be a few Gift Guides running up to Christmas for alls kind of budgets, big and small.
As well as a few Puppy Updates too!
I found getting a puppy such a fun and special experience and I'd love to share with you all my advice when getting a puppy and what things you'll need for you new addition.
Hopefully, we'll be in the new house for Christmas with our little pup Arla and our new super fast WiFi of 76mb, life changing compared to our 0.2mb at our current house.
So be prepared for a YouTube relaunch in the New Year also...

But until then!
Thanks for your patients and understanding about my absence and new crazy life at the moment.
I can't wait to share and document it on my blog.

See you Sunday!
