So I have been sort of AWOL recently. But I have been more than busy, I don’t stop blogging for just any reason! After 3 years of searching and about a million viewings, we have finally bought our own flat! We got the keys on Friday.
Building a home for us is something we have dreamt of for so long that finally being here, doesn’t feel quite real. It’s like we are playing house.
It’s been hectic, we’ve been redecorating. My hands (and if I’m perfectly honest my face too) is covered in specks of paint. I have umpteen bruises – I dropped a tub of pollyfilla on my ankle. My back is killing me from hunching over to paint the skirting boards. In between coats of paint, we are moving our stuff, slowly, from one flat to the other. At the end of the day I collapse into a heap, but I am more than content.
