A Weekend in Oslo

Monday, 24 July 2017
loving the rain!

The day after the general election this year B and I hopped on a plane and flew to (rainy) Oslo for a long weekend, escaping from what we thought would be an inevitable Tory smug-storm.  It was a really fun weekend - Oslo is a cool city with lots to do - so I'd definitely recommend it for a city break.  One thing I would say though is that although flights and accommodation were fairly cheap, it's a pretty bloody expensive city when it comes to food (we rarely found anywhere you could pay under £50 for 2 mains and 2 soft drinks), and especially alcohol.

New House Tour

Saturday, 22 July 2017
We moved into our new house in early February this year.  As it's a new build we were pretty lucky in that we didn't need to do much apart from buy furniture and unpack, so it was a fairly stress free process!  I had a week off work on moving week so was able to get all of the furniture built and about 80% of things unpacked within the first few days.  I felt like a flatpack building machine!  

We've started putting up pictures and things on the walls in the last few weeks, but won't get round to painting until end of this year/early 2018 (technically with new builds you aren't supposed to paint for a year as the walls are still drying out).  So it's white wall city for a good wee while!

Say hello to my little troublemakers.

Hello, again.

Oh hello there.  It's been 6 months since I last blogged.  Half a year!  For a while I considered deleting the whole thing because every time I sat down to write a post I ended up getting as far as opening a draft, and then thinking 'meh I can't be arsed with this'.   In the end though I decided to just leave it until I felt the inspiration to start it up again.  And here we are.  

So, to kick things off - here's what I've been up to since my last post....

...we moved into our new house!

We finally collected the keys and moved into our first proper home in early February.  Everything went really smoothly, apart from me having the flu the weekend we moved in.  Yaaay.....   I'm going to do a house tour post soon with before/after photos, but for now here's a sneak peek at our main bedroom.
