The Stress of Living In Boxes.

Hello my lovelies. I’m gonna be honest with you now. I am very stressed out. You guys see, the partner and I have moved. 450 miles to be exact, but this time we are living in boxes. We are now living in someone else’s home and it’s very stressful. I’m glad they offered a place for us to stay (it’s my old place, the brother in law now stays there) but it’s not home anymore.

While staying here I’ve come to miss the little things we took for granted. Like cooking meals whenever we wanted. (The cooking part aint a topic I wanna go into!) Curling up on the couch to watch a cheesy movie with a bowl of crisps. Trying to stay calm and rage quitting while I die again in monster hunter. (I keep dying at one part and can not get past it!!) Being lazy after work and we both crash on the couch. The whole walking around in just a t-shirt after I get up. Having my craft stuff all over the sitting room table as I pondered what to make. And most importantly the space……how I miss my own space!!

Right now we are living in boxes with very little space. I don’t want to intrude on my brother in laws space with my crafts. I can’t even paint at the moment which is stressing me out! I’ve been hiding at my sister’s flat and even that is pushing the line. She is looking after my chinchillas for me so I go there often for them. God I miss seeing their cute, fluffy little faces every morning.

However there is a good side to this annoyance. We have been looking at some house’s and we may have finally found one. Monday will be the day we find out if they have accepted our offer and I honestly hope they have. I can’t wait to make more things and cook in my own kitchen. (More like watch Rossco cook cause he is the chef in our relantionship) We have both come to realise how much the little things matter.

Also before I leave you all with this ranty post, have a look at my shop’s etsy page http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheNysnoRose

I make custom orders and simple orders to and have made some space for these. If you don’t want to order but think someone else will then please share my page with friends, family and follow me on instagram.

Until next time my lovelies. Xxx

Interviews…….Interviews…..And The Wait!!

I’m gonna be honest here, the last few months have been very difficult. From no job to moving to some place completely new, things ain’t really been easy. It’s been stressful, a few emotional outbursts, a ton of anxiety and a lack of funds thrown into the mix has made things hard. Very hard. 

And now. Well I’m sat here anxiously waiting on news after 3 weeks to see when I can actually start. I have the job which is great but I don’t have the start date. Which is not so great. In the last few days I’ve called my employer (can I call them that yet??) And chased up my references myself. Too the point I’m probally driving them mad or getting sick of me. 

All this waiting has slowly put me into a more negative mood though. I want to get motivated but it can be difficult to do so. My funds are close to drying up but I wont let this get in my way!!!! We moved here for a fresh start, if I need to hassle my employer and call him (again!!!!!) for my start date. Then I will. I’m excited to start working again, to provide for myself and help Rossco with all the little things. 

I even have several interviews lined up just incase this start date doesn’t come today. Some are more than 2 hours away!!! Nightmare for bus travelers like myself. And a worry on the funds. But I plan on making this work. I’ll work through it cause lets be honest here…….I’m far too stubborn to stay down for too long. I’ve got plans and I will reach them, one way or the other.

Moving and A New Adventure

Having thought about what I’d say to you when we both knew it would be the last time for a while. I was used to seeing you every week, chatting away about silly things and catching up on the latest gossip. Then I got the news. News that would take me 400+ miles away from you. 

The last day I saw you, we kept it fun. Had a few cuppa’s and some laughs. Then came the time neither of us where looking forward too. The goodbye. When I cuddled you I didn’t want to let go. But I had too, for me. And I did. The next day my partner and I left at 5am to make the 8 hour journey to our new home. While I miss you now, I know the next time I see you will be amazing and filled with laughs.

So my partner and I have completed our move to England and got our keys to the flat last night. We where exhausted but it was worth it and going to sleep felt amazing. 

Not the best photos but these 2 cuties, who I had been stressing and worrying about slept most of the journey. They settled in to the new place faster than us!! 

Its strange going from a house to a flat. But it’s our flat. No tag on’s, or a shadow. Just us. A fresh start for us and I can not wait. London is just a 40 min train trip away and I’m beyond excited. 

See you all later lovelies.

Massive Clear-out And Huge News

Hello my lovelies. The last month has been crazy, like beyond crazy. I’ve been putting loads of things on the back burner, like looking for work, drawing, finishing my half started projects. That is until just recently. Recently my partner (Rossco) and I finally got the news that we had been waiting for. Rossco got his transfer, so that means we will be leaving the chilly north and heading down 446 miles and spending roughly 8 hours in a car to move to our new home in England. Which we haven’t settled on yet. Luckily this Monday is fully booked with flat viewings! Gonna be super busy. Plus need to get our 2 furbabies down without over stressing them. This will be a challenge. (Wish us luck please!)

Due to the news I have been clearing out all the stuff I no longer want or need. And I can tell ya right now it’s a lot of stuff. It’s strange going through all these belongings and coming to terms that it is time too move on from them. My wardrobe has been emptied and 2 black bags are heading off to charity. I’m giving my friend loads of my jewellery and her kids are getting some of my teddies. (The ones that I’m not keeping. Snowy is coming with me though!!!) Today I’ll be going through all my books (trying to decide which ones are important. Please send help!) Plus I’ll be going through my crafts box to finish off some projects and see what I can do now.

Both our families know and have been fully supportive of this huge move. Even with their support, constantly telling myself everything is gonna be fine and Rossco letting me take charge of packing…….I’m still so damn nervous. My emotions have been all over the place but I’m very excited. It’s a whole new adventure, it will be a culture shock but it will have so many new opportunities. Heck I’m even applying to internships and looking at apprenticeships as we speak. Along with job hunting of course.

Who knows I may have more to write about now! May even get involved in some blogger events. So exciting and so damn nerve wrecking. Anyway see ya all on the other side.

Until next time my lovelies.

Spring Nails (Where have I Been!) 

Hello lovelies. I’m back. I’ve been away for a bit due to ill health in the family. My step dad took ill and I’ve been helping where ever I can. A little stressful here and there but got aome positive results back from the hospital so fingers crossed all goes well. 

With all the stress recently my sister thought it would be a great idea to treat me to a wee pamper session. She had learned how to do some nail art and wanted to give it a try. 

Love the simple gems on the green nail varnish. Great for spring and cheering me up nicely. Nail varnish is by Kiko Milano Cosmetics. With everything that has happened it was nice to actually relax and breathe. 

Ross and me are just waiting on some news that could move things in a positive manner for us. Just need to wait. Either way it will be a big moment. 

Well until next time my beauties. Xx

How I’m Coping With Unemployment. 

Unemployment. I hate it. I truely do hate it with a passion. I’ve always worked since I turned 18 and never really been out of a job……until now that is. And it ain’t fun. It’s actually horrible, it’s stressful, and very upsetting. 

(FYI I was let off with loads of other people because there was NO work coming in for us. Which is understandable.)

To begin with I treated the first few days as a sort of holiday really. I applied to a few jobs here and there but my attitude was upbeat. I was confident and wasn’t overly worried. Even had an interview but didn’t get it. However I remained calm. That is until this week where I came to the realisation that I didn’t have any holiday pay or last minute payments for my old job coming in. 

Now fear and worry have set in with the simple thought of: how the hell am I gonna pay my part of the rent!!!?? 

So I did the only thing I could do. I swallowed my pride and walked into a job centre. They have helped me apply for Jobseekers, even gave me a list of website’s to look at for jobs and I have a meeting this week with them. I’m nervous but feel more in control. I’m making a positive step forward. 

Heck I even took a leap of faith and applied to some bigger jobs!! I even smashed a recent phone interview but I need to wait 3 weeks for the face to face interview (which doesn’t help me now!!) But I’m still gonna see what happens and I’m still gonna go for it if I can. 

Even though I have all this positive stuff round the corner. I’m still so worried. How can I pay the rent?? Is Ross gonna cope?? How does he feel about this?? What about next months rent?? What about food and my boys?? And now my stepdad has taken a bad turn! 

So many thought’s are running through my head but I know I will get there. I always do. It’s just so scary. So difficult and now is when those damn voices have come back to make things worse. My anxiety has come back with a vengence. 

But I will get there. I’m just too damn stubborn to accept this. 

Until next time my lovelies.
