...And I'm Back!

Hiya *waves* It's me again!

Yes, it's been a while. I've had no internet for a couple of weeks, so no blogging for me :(

But... guess what?

The boy and I are all moved into our new flat now, woohooooo! We discovered that between us we owned three coffee tables but only one fork. Eating salad with a spoon can be quite challenging...

The actual move itself was pretty stress-free, thanks to the muscle power and organisational skills of the boy's awesome friends and the tetris-packing skills of John the van man, who managed to fit my not insignificant amount of junk all into the van in one load.

We've just about unpacked, finally, although we need a bookcase, so some boxes will have to remain for a while till we can afford something nice.

So all in all, everything is good. I have never properly lived with a boy before, and I rather like it, although I have discovered that living with someone means I can no longer come home from work and eat cheese sandwiches for dinner though. Apparently that's not proper food or some such nonsense... Consequently, I am putting on some much-needed weight, hurrah! Derby thighs shall be mine once more :)

No shiny things yet, sadly, as I need to purchase a strip of lino to put under my workbench and cabinets to make absolutely sure I don't damage the floor that does not belong to me. It's weird, living in a house that belongs to someone else...

In the world of my old house, the bathroom did finally get finished.

Almost done here....

And tada!!! This is it pretty much finished, apart from the bright pink waterproof roller blind (thanks for the idea mum) that will cover the window and match the bath mat nicely.

And a little closeup of my nice sink, which turned out to be somewhat bigger than it looked in the picture. Turns out you're supposed to check the measurements, not just look at a picture and say "oh, that looks about right". Pah! What do they know? It looked fine in the end :)

So, onwards and upwards now. First task is to sort out workshop floor, then finish rollerskate. There will also be more new-flat related stuff I suspect. Do yell if you get bored...

Bye for now X

Oh wow that is such a gorgeous bathroom, I love how the pink rug looks on the black and white tiles and it will look even nicer with the roller blind. I'm definitely having tiles just like that when I can afford it!

Thanks Pixie! The tiles were kind of expensive, but totally worth it in the end :)
