Moving into our new home

Published Categorized as Home, Life

I’ve mentioned before that The Boy and I were in the process of buying our first home – and now we’ve finally moved in!

Well okay, we’re still in the process of unpacking (as you can see from the Maccas box in the photo above we scrounged everywhere for free boxes), but we’re almost there. As much as I’ve been trying to be less attached to possessions, I have to say that I have really missed my stuff and having it back makes me so happy! Moving and unpacking it all however, has taken almost a week and still requires a lot more organising to fit, tetris-like, into the space.

Speaking of space, since our new place has one room more than our previous apartments The Boy and I can have separate rooms to use as offices. I claimed the bigger one for my ‘studio’, where I’m hoping to have a permanent setup for my sewing machine as well as my computer. I still haven’t decided on how I want to handle my standing desk, so for now I’m continuing to make do with propping up my laptop with a bunch of books. I’ve also been wanting low, long bookshelves (tall bookshelves seem to clash with the shape of the arched windows), so have laid my tall IKEA Billy bookcases stacked on their side in what is probably the laziest IKEA hack ever. I have a long way to go, but I’m happy with how my studio is taking shape.

There will almost certainly be some kitchen/wardrobe/shelves organisation posts coming up soon, you have been warned!

    Was looking through old art and got to wondering how you were doing and where you were. Thank goodness for outdated Gaia profiles!! <3

    1. Cat! Gosh it’s been a long time. I occasionally go back to take a peek at Gaia every now and then – I have fond memories but it’s changed so much! I hope things are going well with you too :)
