Reallocating: Our New Home In Pictures

Nearly two months since we moved to our new home, that we are renting.. We are now happy and settled here and I am not going to keep you waiting any longer. Even though the house is not yet perfectly picture-ready, I am¬†sharing our home photos today. ūüôā

The reason for the delay with this post is that there still are quite a lot of bits and pieces to sort out before we can relax and enjoy our days here. One of them is¬†buying a double bed-¬†Edward and I¬†sleep on the mattress on the floor. We had been looking for a bed for quite a while now, but there is nothing,¬†that we would really like. Hanging¬†some pictures on the walls is also in my near future plans, I can never find¬†time to do this… We¬† also want to replace our computer table, as the one that we currently have is very big and doesn’t go¬†with the whole look.

Lets get to the pictures then. Continue reading Our New Home In Pictures

Furniture that we Bought for our New Home

Furniture that we Bought for the New Home justina ivanauskieneGoodness me, moving is expensive! It cost us even more this time than ever before, as the current house that we rent was empty (just as our pockets now)- no furniture, no fridge, no washing machine. Here only was kitchen cupboards, and luckily two wardrobes- in our bedroom and in Luka’s room. Therefore we had to buy most of the things¬†ourselves.

Anyway, as much as it was painful to our wallets, it was also very exciting, I have to admit. We love creating our home and buying all the lovely things, that we believe will add some cosiness to our surroundings. So we just closed our eyes and…. SPENT…

The first priority for us as soon as we moved in it was to get the fridge and the washing machine. I cannot imagine our life without those, but probably no one can.  We have decided to buy them second hand ones, as we will unlikely be taking them to another property, once we decide to move out (hopefully not any time soon). Looked up on Gumtree and VOILA (victory in French apparently)! Our fridge and the washing machine are both Hotpoint brand and actually in a really good working order.

I really do like the washing machine! We paid ¬£100 (second hands) for it and it’s lovely! It has 8 kilograms load, which is very useful having a big family like ours. It’s pretty quiet, many options, looks fancy (lights and buttons ūüėÄ ) and really does a great job! Continue reading Furniture that we Bought for our New Home
