Thank you all SO much for your kind words and well wishes on our new house! It turns out that original features and a spot of DIY turns you guys on as much as it does me, so I'll make sure to share some updates. Our living room is looking rather lovely, but I'll hold off sharing pictures until our new furniture arrives.
We moved in on Tuesday and we've already unpacked and set up the kitchen , our bedroom, the bathroom and the living room. Next stop...the sewing room! It would have been first on my list if I had my own way of course...
On a slightly sadder note, we went to clean our old flat today and say a final goodbye. I'm not going lie, it was very bittersweet - we've enjoyed such an awesome 5.5 years there, in such a central and 'cool' location. I've also had an absolute blast arsing around on our balcony, taking pictures for this blog. The natural sunlight and privacy are a winning combination. And, it even has railings and terracotta wall tiles that are ideal for displaying and hanging makes from.
I'm going to miss that balcony and all it has to offer. But, I guess half the fun in the new house will be experimenting with new locations. I just hope I discover somewhere as good...or even better maybe!?!
Finally, I'll leave you with a picture of my new do...which I'm delighted with by the way! A work colleague recommended Love Me Do hair boutique - it's beautifully retro with friendly and extremely capable staff. I can safely say that for the first time in my 5.5 years in Leicester, I've found a hair salon that I'll happily return to again and again. Give it a whirl if you're from/in the area!
Hopefully, I'll have some stitching-related posts to share soon...before I lose your interest entirely!
