Starting To Grow Up

I’m 31 years old and I live with my grandparents.

When I was little I lived with my parents in a small village, but just before I was five we moved in with my grandparents as it was closer to school. My parents got divorced when I was 8, so we stayed living with my grandparents throughout the rest of my childhood.

When I was 18 I went to university, first I lived in the dorms, then in a rented room. My last year I stayed with a friend three days a week, and the last six months I moved back home and commuted as it was cheaper. When I moved back home, my Mum had married a Welsh guy and we moved back to Swansea and my grandparents had moved up to the house next door. So I moved in with my grandparents while I look for a job.

When I was getting to the point when I could just about afford to move out we found out my grandfather had Alzheimer's so I stayed, then he had a stroke. So someone needed to be here to keep an eye on them at night.

But the other day  I put an offer in on a little house up the road, it has three bedrooms so my grandparents are going to move up with me while our house gets renovated, the damp proof coursing needs fixing and they need a downstairs bathroom built.

After it’s done, I’m not sure whether I will move back with them and rent out the house or stay as is only 8 houses away.

But finally I am starting to grow up.

Free planner stickers–transport

Lately I’ve become obsessed with planner stickers and have spent way too much on Etsy on printable planner stickers – shipping is way too expensive from the US and this way I can print as many as I want or need – but this week I needed a train sticker but couldn’t find one. So I decided to make my own.

I also decided to thrown in a few other modes of transport – car, taxi, bus and bicycle. They aren’t perfect but I thought I’d share anyway just in case anyone else can make use of them. Just click on the image for the link, download print on letter or a4 paper and cut out – sized to fit in a 1/2” punch.

Random Sunday Ponderings

•ðŸ¹why do I drink a drink quicker if it comes with a straw?
• 🎬 why if I have my TV set up with Freeview NowTV Netflix Amazon Prime Instant Video and the DVD player am I watching YouTube?
• why if Sunday is the day of rest have I spent most of it cleaning?
• 🐶 why if I buy my dog a new bed does she tear it to shreds and the whole house gets covered in stuffing?
• ✂️ why do I find fussy cutting stickers relaxing despite the huge mess it makes?
•ðŸ— why does chicken wrapped in bacon taste so good?

Just your normal Sunday Ponderings
