it's never good when the man says that you're controlling him too much, it's so tricky to know when the persuasion stops and the controlling starts...
we're going to meet my brother and his family tomorrow and although I'm not very nervous I think Pete is slightly nervvy. I'm sure it all will be fine and we'll have a nice evening, watch some movies, have a go at their new dance game console, I look forward to that.
With so many things to sort out today I can say that I've went through most of the unpleasant ones, call to BT to cancel my broadband package (of course there will be fee of over £99 for early cancellation), and to cancel my email package. I hate calling those companies, they're all nice and helpful as long as you're spending money - but when you need to cancel, they all make big fuss about it!
Surprisingly I've bumped into my friend yesterday, he happens to live in the same village, and just around the corner from me, amazing :) That's so true it's a small world.
My Christmas ambitions continue with making the heart bunting, maybe it's not as impressive as the photo, which I found on Google, but never the less it's enjoyable to make and gives some sense to my passing days :)

Such a small addition, but make a massive difference, finally we're having doors in the house! My partner is having 'love-hate' relationship with the doors and has removed nearly all of the internal doors around the house, I didn't even realise how great job they do when it comes to keeping the heat! Now the winter is on it's way the house is slowly becoming very cold. When there's no door to keep the cold coming in from the front door or cat flap, the cold travels freely all around the house. We've agreed to get the door today from reclamation yard, and now that we've started to put them in we can already feel the difference in the temperature - I'm really glad we got around doing it :)

Pursuing my hobby - writing a Blog. It's been a busy day unpacking at home and finally there are some visible changs aka progress. More space in the kitchen cupboards means more space for my stuff and I can fold another empty carboard box - success. Although after 3 weeks of living here I thought I will be nearly almost unpacked. All takes time I suppose.
We're off to barn dance tomorrow night and cornich wrestling during a day, it's going to be an interesting day. We might put the Christmas Tree up - hopefully - and also maybe just maybe get the washing machine fixed. Although I do not see this happening, and the damp clothes will be there in the bowl lying outdoors as they did for last 3 days. I do not know how to deal with a partner who is sooo 'laid back'.
I need to have more patience on nearly every step :)

So here I am writing the first post on my first personal Blog, thank you for stopping by! Trying to be patient with my keyboard which can be very unresponsive lately.
So Neverending Pursuit of Neverland is basically bearing my soul (although these are the intentions, don't know if I will be brave enough in the end), talking about my views on life I chose, finding out if it actually makes me happy and also having a hobby :)
Most of my life has been one big Neverending Pursuit of 'perfect' - perfectly cleaned cupboards, polished shoes, perfect atmosphere at work, perfect living arrangements. Never have i been good at fitting into the expected mould, my freedom and independence have been the most important things in my life. Impatient, brutally honest and not very gentle when it comes to inter-personal situations - that would be me in a pill.
Well, my honesty might be not considered as a flaw by some people, yet I'm trying to hold more in these days - "count to 10 before you speak in anger" - that's what my parents always said. I try to practice it more now, and it really makes miracolous changes - I'm honestly surprised!
Pursuit of Perfect is also responsible for my love life so far - I was always finding flaws in any boyfriend / date, which were always impossible to stand. I have realised only lately there's no Perfect Man, as nobody's perfect. It's better to set for 'Man Good Enough Right Now' and find happiness with him. Surprisingly it can work, as long you work on it (both).
