Our New Home

Yes, you heard correctly, I have finally moved out of the parental home yay! Graeme and I have found a lovely furnished little two bedroom flat just outside of Woking and moved in 3 weeks ago. Now we are little more settled I have finally found time to blog take photographs.  It was a bit of a bomb site before but after some good old Swedish flat packing are flat looks much more like a home. That and the fact Christmas is literally around the corner so we could put a tree up almost straight away.  The tree is very cute and quirky, and cheered me up after getting a bit run down from all the cleaning and unpacking.  It has already started to loose it's needles (don't touch the tree!!) but I love having a real tree and means we don't have to store it after the holidays, thank you Graeme.
The kitchen; purple themed of course with my awesome Next kettle and toaster, so pleased with this purchase!!

The living room; we needed a rug as the floor is very hard and cold. Graeme choose this huge beast of a shaggy rug which pretty much covers the whole floor and is so lovely to sit/lay on.  Most expensive purchase = totally worth it!!
The bedroom; a little less cluttered than the others and a lovely place to relax in the evening.  We put the second chair from the living room in here as a gaming chair/clothes horse so we can play Xbox in this room if the other one has friends over, yes, we thought of everything!!
The study; this may be our favourite room but mainly because we have two huge desks to spread out on for the computers to play games or plenty of space to craft.  It does feel a little bit like my desk at work but at least I get to play on this one.
I'm just far too excited to finally  have my own place which we can decorate to our liking (even if I can't change the wall colour :oP)  I remember as a little girl cutting out the pictures of things I wanted from the Argos catalogue to stick into my scrap book of my imaginary home and now I have a real home.  But more than anything it gives me the chance to do what I really love re-purposing the old into the new.  I follow lots of blogs about reinventing, reusing and recycling, not only will it save me money but I can also make things really unique with my own twist. The only thing to decide now is where do I start?
