We are in. We have our own house keys, our own front door to shut on the world. Our own space, to do whatever we please and it feels so good.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s stressful. It’s so very stressful. But knowing that you can shut the world out when needed is nice. We may not be 100% settled yet, as this is all still so very new to us. But that’s the fun of this new adventure.
My favourite thing of all is making my own meals; which a lot of people say I’m going to get sick of very quick. But it’s nice, and I’m enjoying it so much.
The DIY goddess in me has popped up to say hello, and although there is a lot of cursing and shouting but getting to the finished product is very rewarding.
We are far from finished, but will we ever be finished? There will always be a want or a need, something we come across to use and it’s not there. But that’s all the fun in moving into your own home.
I learnt the hard way about where the smoke alarms are, and if they work. They definitely do. I set one off making a fry up on our first full day here – yay! The other leaving the door open whilst in the shower so the condensation set it off. My neighbours are going to love me.
Oh, and thanks to Hurricane Henry, we only have half a fence up; how rude of him.
But, I can not be thankful enough to all of Nathan and I’s family and friends for all of the help we’ve had over the past week or so. Each and every one of you has been amazing, and I can’t be anything other than grateful for that.
I’m now going to enjoy my very first lush goodie filled bath in our own home.
