Today’s BEDM prompt is quite fitting as today was the day I picked up the keys for the bf and I’s new flat. I’m so excited. Hello home number 23! This place is just a stop gap for a year tops (hopefully) while we get to know Peterborough and then search for somewhere to buy but I’m looking to make it as homely as possible. All furniture will be our own and that’s definitely a first for me.
(We are such nerds! – Love it)
I think what I’m most excited about in terms of the furniture is our sofa. It’s my parents old one and is so damn comfy! I don’t know what it is about sofas in rental homes – they’ve all been terrible where I’ve lived.
Before getting to my favourite part of moving – unpacking and finding a place for everything, we firstly need to pack everything up. This is a massive job that we only have two days left to finish. Fingers crossed it all goes well.
We moved in a few boxes today but thats barely made a dent in the bf’s book & dvd collection. We’re going to need a library one day. I can’t complain really, my clothing collection is still at large after taking two big bags of it today. So a walk in wardrobe as well will be needed.
I’m looking forward to having everything in it’s place and just settling in. No more river dancers upstairs, noisy surroundings and leaky shower (this is just scratching the surface of my hatred for this current flat). Goodbye Wembley!
What’s your idea of Home Sweet Home?
I’ve been feeling rather broody lately. For a home of my own. I was recently contacted by Fields of Blue, a homeware company who sell shabby chic vintage style home accessories and I had a lovely time browsing their site. Take a look at my wish list.
I wouldn’t think myself much of a pastel kind of person, but I found myself gravitating towards everything pastel on this site. I just love the retro feel of it. My friend has a set of these scales in pink and I’ve always wanted a set of my own. Especially since I started Slimming World and am weighing things more. Plus my mum would be proud of me for picking out this matching clock. See, I can match sometimes! This clock looks like it should be in an American diner with a jukebox.
I don’t really bake that often but I think I would have to make it more of a regular occurrence if I owned a cake stand as pretty as this one. Anyone want to come over for a tea party? And my home wouldn’t be complete without something a bit quirky so these globe lights fit the bill. I’ve seen a lot of different fairy lights but never this style before!
