A new chapter

As you will all probably know, as it's all I've been banging on about for the last few months, this weekend is my last weekend in the flat before I move house on Tuesday.  The flat is now strewn with packing materials and boxes and I've been furiously sorting through things to keep and things to throw away.  Before I worked in my current job I worked for the photography store Jessops, and as a result, I've amassed boxes and boxes full of negatives, photographs and photo discs, most of which I sorted through this morning.  Because this move will bring me to a new chapter in my life it felt quite poignant and apt to be looking through images of previous chapters - old friends, old boyfriends, previous places I've lived.  I even pulled out some photos of the first flat I bought and remembered how I felt on that first day of moving in; like I had something that was all mine; that feeling of true independence and ownership.

If someone had told me a year ago that this time this year I would have just bought a house with the most lovely, kind person I have ever met, I just would have laughed.  I would have laughed because firstly, a year? To meet someone, fall in love, and buy your first house? I don't think so.  Secondly because this wasn't at all what I was looking for.  I was happy with my independence and my priority was to do well at work and pursue my career.  I guess it's true what they say that you don't know what you're looking for until you find it. Anyway, enough gush - I guess I just feel thoughtful and nostalgic, and at the same time, so impossibly excited for our new home.

I decided to have a break from packing earlier and do some photoshopping as I love the idea of having some new address cards to send out, I did the first and wasn't sure about it so I did the second for a bit of a laugh and funnily enough I quite like it, it looks just like me and Tom!



On a final note, I was a bit naughty today and bought a dress online from Dorothy Perkins.  I had spied it in Glamour magazine and loved it, so when the lovely Sarah from A Million Dresses announced today that DP were having a 30% off dresses sale, and that their 20% off code still worked (DPGLAM20) I couldn't resist picking it up - especially for a bargainous £28.  Perfect for all those garden parties I'll be holding in the summer!


Hope you're all having lovely weekends!

  5. Congrats on the new house! How lovely. Hope everything goes well. Totally know what you mean about the dreams you never knee you had - if someone had told me 3 years ago that I was going to end up living on a narrowboat with my best friend I would have laughed too!
