It was never going to be easy, but I prepared as best I could - French toast, two coffees, and a queue of excellent podcasts (thanks to Forever 35, The High Low and Highly Enthused). Having to brave Ikea, Target, Bunnings and Coles all in one day is some kind of headache in my book. But I move into my own place in a week, and I need a bunch of things - I got rid of so much before I put my life into storage a year ago, no use holding onto old pillows and grubby mops and brooms and draw liners and all the rest. It’s nice to start fresh, and having bought my very first home, I’m looking forward to having everything just so. All as I like it.
It was rainy but productive, and afterwards I went by Laura and Will’s house for coffee and some muddy garden stomping with their boys.
