My Life: A Little Update

Happy Daisy Instagram Crochet Life
It's been a little quiet here on the blog this week - the exact opposite of what it's been like in actual non-virtual life! If you follow me on twitter - you'll probably have seen my stressful outbursts as flat hunting got the better of me. I've been searching for somewhere to move in to in September, when I start my degree. I can say with relief that this is now sorted. I went to view a little maisonette flat with my parents on Sunday - and while it's not perfect, nor my "dream home" it's far better than Halls of Residence and will save me a very long commute every day.

So, in about three weeks time I'm going to be moving out of the home I've known for the last twenty years and in to a place not-quite-of-my-own, as I'm renting it with another student, but you get the picture. I'm excited to start making it into a home - I've been writing lists like a maniac, DIY projects that I want to make, Things I need to buy, Things I need to pack etcetera etcetera.

I've been lurking the Home Decor boards on Pinterest to get some ideas and getting thoroughly overexcited! I brought a stack of cardboard boxes home yesterday (one of the perks of working in Retail - a ready access to decent sized boxes!) and I'm going to start a slow-and-steady session of packing everything I need, over the next couple of weeks. I have never moved house before, my family and I have lived in our current house since I was six months old, and I couldn't possibly of imagined how much there is to think about! Every five minutes I suddenly think of something else I need to take with me: bucket/hot water bottle/cutlery - my mind is racing!

In the midst of all the excitement, I've been working hard on my crochet blanket, which is getting pretty sizeable, I have three squares left to do, it's going to brighten up my new little bedroom a lot, I think!
So I'd like to apologise for the quiet here on the blog this week, but I assure you I have not been idling!

Has anyone got any tips on moving out for the first time? I'd love to hear them.

  1. When I moved out at the beginning of this year, I stocked up on heaps of homely stuff from garage sales, and op shops. But then again you can easily buy anything you need brand new at a decent price, 'not like in my day' as my mother will remind me. But then again pots that are the thickness of a piece of paper aren't exactly the most enjoyable to cook with. I also went kinda crazy on taking every single object I possessed into my flat. Which always made me feel weird when I came back home for a visit and was sleeping in my old bedroom, and it was all naked. It's nice to leave your mark on your old bedroom if you can! Unless your parents want to transform it into a home-gym, then I don't really know what to tell you.
    Otherwise I wish you the best of luck! Moving out of home makes you see things from a different perspective. My oh my that blanket is growing haha.

    1. I am planning to get a lot of things second hand - mainly because I love things with a story! Though I do have to make a trip to Ikea next week to pick up some basics... Yes! The problem with me, is I've just got my bedroom at my parents, to a state where I really like it! So I don't want to dismantle it too much... haha!

      Thankyou lovely!! Yep, the blanket's growing - each square is 22 rounds, and I'm on my 7th square at the moment! Ax
