Settling In




Hello!
We're in! We've spent the last two weeks sorting out masses of stuff, finding new homes for things and thriftily buying the things we still needed. It's been really fun! And obviously a bit knackering too... 

It didn't help proceedings that I had my first year deadline on Tuesday and had to dig out my sketchbooks from boxes! I knew it would happen and was dreading it, but all went surprisingly smoothly in the end. So now, we're in a new home, I've finished uni for the year and am now looking for a summer job. It's all change!

I think I need a week to sit around, drink tea and recover! Oh and watch all the episodes of Kirstie's Homemade Home again. You know, I'm a woman obsessed. I do love a posh bird on telly getting stuff out of skips! On her recommendation I'm even making a quilt for our new bed! Maybe I'll show you an in-progress pic or two soon.

Have a great weekend all :)  I plan on doing some baking and lots of sitting about.

Glad the move and uni deadline went well, I think you deserve a rest now.
Wasn't Kirstie's Handmade Home great? I also thought about making a quilt but I don't think i've got time, can't wait to see some pics.

It's all very exciting! Katje, I really wanted it to look fresh (that was the exact word I had in mind) so I'm glad you think it works. I only wish the walls were white rather than magnolia but you can't have everything :) I'd gladly paint them but in a rental property I don't think the landlord would be too happy!
