We've moved in! Finally!!!
After all the drama, Adam and I now permanently live together, no more long distance, no more week long stints together. After two long years, a BA and a Masters later, we finally get to wake up next to each other every morning, even if for the time being on a blow up air bed! We're getting our mattress delivered next week (Yayyyyy!
We really had a hard time getting to this point, we are the poster people of how not to move to London, everything that could have gone wrong did and it took longer than expected.
So gone are the overnights in hostels, long cross country commutes and late night face times!
We're finally unboxing all the things we've been buying for the past 18 months and although it took me 15 minutes to find underwear this morning, we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.
It's crazy how much stuff we have between us, despite us both having massive clear outs prior to moving, but with our things in the building it's starting to feel like ours, it's our new home. How grown up.
Speaking of grown up: moving, living and being located in London is expensive. Like super expensive. Tax is painful, rent makes you cry and council tax don't come cheap at nearly £1400 per year. So yeah, friends if you want to go out, I'll be on tap water!
I'm so glad to have done this with Adam, he really is the best. We also couldn't have done it without our super supportive friendship group and our amazing Dads!
It's been a challenge, but in the end, we're in, it's ours and our new pad is starting to shape up! Prepare for lots of homeware stuff, DIYs and life stuff over the next couple of months. It might be a little slow off the blocks as we don't have internet yet, but it'll be all good in the end!
