Life in a Northern town

Loving the new hair #greypunzel


Hoping that we can exchange contracts on this house very soon.


Praying that Boy’s dance shirt and trousers arrive in time for his competition.

Trying to get all the outstanding odd jobs done on our house by the end of the coming weekend so it can go on the market.

Looking forward to the kids first dance competition in Blackpool on the 4th October.

Spending a lot of time practicing waltz and samba steps.  I’m slowly learning to dance by osmosis! 😉

Eating too much takeout…but holding the thought of my lovely new kitchen and all the amazing food I’ll cook there!

Knitting the Hubs cardigan…still.  But I’m on the last front so I’m hopeful it’ll be off the needles soon.


Sewing dress blinds for the hall windows.

Dreaming of when it’s all done and we’re in the new house and we can slow down a little.

Remembering to breathe!

    hope all goes well with the move and the children’s dance competition, all exciting stuff

      Thanks. This year the dance comp is just about getting them used to the environment. They’ve only been dancing 3 months and they’re up agains kids who’ve been doing it for years.

      Next year…all bets are off! 😉

  3. The new hair is gawjuss, and you are looking very cheekboney Mrs P! Glad everything is going well, and fingers crossed for the house.

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      Thank you! The cheekbones are courtesy of a very good camera angle, I can assure you. I’m as fat as a ham at the moment, but I’ll deal with that after the move.

    Hair is looking lovely!
    Life sounds very hectic but also very exciting. Fingers crossed you will all be settled in and relaxed by Christmas! x

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      From your lips to God’s ears! The survey on the new place is next week. Once that’s done we’ll know when (if) we’re going to move in. Can’t wait!

  5. You look fab and life sounds as “quiet” as usual 😉 Deep breaths and large glasses of wine when the little ones have gone to bed! Fingers crossed for the house 🙂

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      Yes…we don’t really do quiet, do we?!?!
      Wine o’clock is my favourite time of the day at the moment! Thankfully, today I finished everything I need to do on the house and put it on the market. Now I can concentrate on the exam I have in 3 weeks. Cue mad laughter!

    Oh wow, I adore the new ‘do! It’s fabulous!
    You’re also super and wonder woman all rolled into one, dealing with that amount of crazy all at once… I take my hat off to you! Fingers crossed you’ll be in your new home very very soon x

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      Thank you….I love that I can actually wear my hair down now. It was looking decidedly ratty before. Perks of growing out the grey!

      I’m not the only one who has a busy life. Your’s is more so than mine. So I tip my hat back at ya!

      Hopefully end of October for the house, but a lot can go wrong before we’ve got the contract. Just keeping all crossed here too.

  7. Your hair is gor-ge-ous! I love that colour and so bang on trend. Your really suit it. Hope that the move is coming along nicely and that you are in your new home soon. No stress, and hope everything is a bit less hectic soon. Xx

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      Thank you kindly. I’m growing out the grey under cover of “the cool kids are doing it” rather than “I’m looking down the barrel of 50”. Shhh…don’t tell them!

      Today I’ve hit the tipping point and all I have to do now is keep the house ready for viewings and hope that no-one gets bashed by things falling out of overstuffed cupboards! 😉

  8. So happy to hear all is well though hectic for you! House move is exciting…minus all packing involved. You must be thrilled to have them competing so soon. Next up they will have to teach mom & dad how to dance ;o)

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      I’m not thinking about the packing yet. Although some of it is done already. The loft is stuffed with boxes!

      I’m looking forward to the competition on Sunday, though not to the very early start to get there on time! I’m rather astonished at how well they’ve take to this…as is their dance teacher! I can now do a basic waltz and a basic samba, which I’ve picked up by osmosis! When Hubby gets work back in Lancashire, we’ll be signing up for classes too. It’s ridiculous fun and you get to wear sparkly shoes. What’s not to love?!
