Some good news to kick off the year - our house completion date is finally confirmed, woo hoo! Assuming all goes to plan in the next 2 weeks with the legal bits and bobs, then we should get the keys on the 27th of Jan, with us moving in properly the week of the 13th Feb. The countdown is well and truly on!
I feel like we've been in a bit of limbo for the last month or so, with us knowing that the move was happening *soon* but just not sure exactly when, so I've been trying not to get overly excited. It also means that our flat is in the early stages of being packed up which is just the worst. We're at the "looking in cupboards trying to work out what to keep and what to get rid of" stage and so our spare room is chock full of half packed boxes and bin bags full of things for recycling. Urgh.
It doesn't help that I started buying house stuff in the Boxing Day sales so there's loads of packages of nice new things that I can't use yet which are just taunting me and begging to be unpacked. This includes a new mattress topper, duvet and pillows from Soak & Sleep which I am DYING to start using but need to wait until we're in the new (kingsize) bed.
Most of the bits I bought in the sales were decor pieces like kitchen things, photo frames, lighting etc - although I did also order our sofa from Next, which is the only furniture I've purchased so far. We're going for a bit of a copper, marble, white and grey theme and luckily that is really *in* at the moment so it's been pretty easy to find things!
I've put together a wishlist of things that I've either bookmarked or already bought, so this should give you a bit of a sneak peek as to what our decor is going to look like.
Where to find everything
*The Cox and Cox frames were kindly sent to me (along with some copper bowls and mugs which you'll see when I do a kitchen tour post), so thanks very much to the team for being so generous - I can't wait to hang them up in the new house!
