Moving on out

14 Jan

1483_10151192027212967_245453102_nThe last couple of weeks have been kind of hectic. I decided to move out of my parents’ house and in with my boyfriend Tom…over Christmas!

We spent the first couple of days sleeping on an air bed using empty cardboard boxes and a blanket as a sofa. We didn’t even have a shower curtain!

But three weeks later, following several shopping trips during the January sales and a couple of trips home and back, our flat finally looks and feels like a home.

I have discovered what it means to be house-proud by complaining every time Tom leaves his clothes on the floor or food wrappers on the table, and I’m constantly on the look out for small furnishings that can make our flat more cosy and comfortable.

There is also the budget side of it but we will only know if it is really working when we get our first lot of bills through. Until then we can look out for cheaper ways of living for example reduced food at the supermarket and shopping online for the best deals on household goods.

      Yes, we try to change it and add stuff to it to make it more like a home every weekend. Still needs work though. New sofa arrives in 10 weeks 🙂
