Our New Flat

This post is entirely an excuse to show off our lovely new flat. It's the first time since Uni that we've ever been able to properly choose our own place to live. It's also the first time we've had somewhere big enough for us to have space for all our stuff, and one of only 2 places (the other being our tiny apartment in Japan) where we're not sharing with someone else. In the last 4 years we've lived in 8 different places, and it's been 7 years since I lived in one place for longer than a year. It feels amazing to know we're going to be settled here for probably 2 years, and we can actually make it feel properly like home.

We have a SOFA. For the first time in 4 years. It's amazing. 

It also has a table big enough to easily feed 4. I can't wait for dinner parties! 

Our kitchen has an OVEN, SURFACE SPACE and a FULL SIZED FREEZER. I am in heaven. 

John's Mum bought us a beautiful silk bonsai tree
