So having exchanged on our house purchase last week, this week has been filled mainly with:
It’s truly amazing how much ‘stuff’ two people can fit into a two-bedroom flat. I dread to think about ever moving from a three-bedroom house with a garden. I think I’d like to stay there forever!
Today is my due date – eeeeek – and Mr M is working all weekend until completion day on Tuesday, so we decided to spend the weekend packing up the flat and moving it to my mum and dad’s garage just in case Little R-M makes his or her appearance in the meantime.
It’s probably helped my nesting needs and has given me a great chance to declutter everything, so that we are only moving what we need.
I cannot wait to start making our new house a home. The most exciting bit for me is to have a garden – I’m an outdoors girl really and I can’t wait to have my own outdoor space. We only have a small balcony at the moment, so we won’t know ourselves in the new house.
Mr M is planning what he will do with the interiors already and is constantly on Pinterest and eBay looking for ideas and inspiration.
Although I can’t wait to move, there is a little tinge of sadness about leaving this flat. We have been here four years and this home has seen many of our big life events, including our engagement, our marriage, and finding out we were expecting our first child, so it will always hold a special place in my heart.
I think there will be a bit of sadness as we close the door for the last time, but as that door closes, another opens to the next chapter in our lives.
