We bought a house, yay! After a very long search, we bought a place about 7 weeks ago and 2 weeks ago, we moved in. The move was huge, considering we’d been living in our rental for 5 years. There was so much stuff to chuck out, even for us who are not hoarders. I am not a huge decorator, however sinking my teeth in to what we will put in the house has been at the forefront of my mind and most nights you can find me trawling various home décor websites to find the perfect cushion which doesn’t seem to exist. I ended up buying fabric today so I can make my own cushions, so we’ll see how that works out.
Apart from a few little fixes around the house, it is completely liveable and lovely. I love the space, I love that it’s on one level and it already feels like home. The back door is a bi-fold one and Teddy is loving the indoor/outdoor living. Being able to watch us from out the back while he plays makes him a happy little pup.
The backyard currently has a concrete fence at the back that I plan to paint a light grey-ish colour. I also want either a vertical garden type thing or perhaps just to plant some small trees or bushes at the base to spice it up a little. The previous owner left quite a few potted plants but they are so random and not so well maintained so I don’t think we’ll keep them.
The Autumn weather that is starting to make an appearance makes me so happy! I love the cold weather and any hint of chill gets me pretty excited. Instead of lying in bed cold when it is time to walk Ted in the morning I’ve been using it as a time to go for a run to warm ourselves up. Wearing jumpers and boots is so comforting.
What has everyone else been up to?
