So the new year has already kicked off to an exciting start! Last Friday my sister Hannah and her girlfriend Ella moved into their first home together! It’s been a busy weekend of unpacking and assembling furniture this weekend and I have to say their lovely little home looks great!
They’ve done so well to get together everything you’d need for a first home! Many trips to IKEA later and it’s all matching!
They have only moved a 2 minute walk down the road from me and Rod so I expect they’ll be sick of the sight of us soon but it will be lovely to have our movie nights and only have to take a quick stroll home!
It’s crazy to think that we have lived in our flat for nearly 5 years now and even crazier to think that we’ve been together for 10 years. Whilst rearranging my living room (because I was jealous of how great Hannah and Ella’s looked!) I came across a scrapbook I had made for Rod in 2010. We had been together 3 years and it was full of cinema tickets and little quotes. A lot has happened in the last 7 years and the last thing put into the scrapbook was our favourite wedding picture. Hopefully the next picture to be put in will be a baby scan but we will have to keep our fingers crossed for that one!
I am so grateful for everything that I have and for the family around me and I wish Hannah and Ella lots of happy times in their new flat together! Congratulations!
