Green tea and blogging.



Good morning world! I am at work ridiculously early today so I thought I would write a little life update until I actually have to start my shift.

House 
I haven't written about the house buying for a while mostly because nothing really new has been happening and it is kinda depressing. We had a meeting last night with Kaeti from Bank of Queensland and it was more not so awesome news. We are definitely on track to getting our finance accepted, which is good, it is just going to take us longer than we hoped which not as great. We really want to be in our new house by Christmas and Kaeti has been positively amazing and is pushing to get us there with everything she has got, we are going to give it another go on the first of December so I will have another update  for you around then! Until that time, Steve and I just have to keep save save saving because the more we can put in the better our chances are of acceptance. 

It has been a long road and I am sure it will have a happy ending and I will have a wonderful post full of hindsight wisdom! 

Work
I am full time now at the cafe. I haven't worked full time in so long and it has taken a little while for my body to adjust to the change but I think I am slowly getting there. I still love working there, I haven't worked in a place with such an awesome team of staff since back in the good old days at Vat and it is so nice. My barista skills have been improving but I am in a little bit of a slump with it at the moment. I think all the other annoying things going on in life are affecting me in little ways and coffee is one of them!

Family
Bayley is fantastic. He is the little light of my life and I am really trying to appreciate and make the most of the time we have together. Now that I work full time I have to work on one of the days I usually used to spend with him which sucks but it's making me do more with the time I do spend with him so that is great.

Steve just qualified from his apprenticeship yesterday and we went out for dinner for a little celebration. Caught up with Kat and Dan and Renae came along too. It was a lovely night!

I was going to write more but my shift has started so I need to get to work. They are the main things that are happening anyway!!

Love 'n' stuff!
