Oh and so the mayhem continues. As if being sick in October wasn't disruptive enough, it looks like I'll be out of our current flat by Christmas. Yes, really. Hello 12th house move in 7 years.
In some respects I shouldn't bitch too hard, we lasted a whole 15 months in this flat, a flat I love FYI and am leaving for reasons that it's none of my business to be disclosing or chatting about.
There have been times in my life where I've felt extreme stress that displays a bit like frantic panic, similar situations to this one- negotiating the early termination of a contract and having an unspecified time period left living somewhere and being unable to start looking for the next place. This time around I just feel weary of it already and the chaos has barely started. It's a bit like having a consistent dark cloud obscuring the bright sunlight that everyone else seems to enjoy.
I continue to be a believer in the box theory- that houses are boxes that you put you stuff in. This has been a bigger better box than the previous and the next box is going to be one that T & I don't share, but I'm getting a bit fed up of exchanging boxes now.
I never was much of an interior designer, but I did love doing a small amount of styling for M&S last year
I never used to mind moving house, I've done a fair bit of it, including moves across countries as well as counties and cities but maybe I'm reaching a point in my life where the exciting of unpacking my life into a new space is just a hassle now.
But ultimately, we can't stop the steam train that's in motion and now's a time I'm choosing to use to look back on some of the things that made this box our home for now- after all, home is what you make it.
I still have no idea what was going on here.
I told you interiors weren't my forte... matching wine & wallpaper....
Pretty sure this isn't what normal people's living rooms look like on any given Friday afternoon....
I made T get his pumpkin on last year. Boy done good this year too.....
And not least, this is a flat we've had a good time and partied hard in.
