We're in. The old house has been completely cleared of our belongings though it will always hold some of our dearest memories. It has been thoroughly cleaned with hot water, bleach and a few tears. And so we move on. In so many ways.
I have realised this week I had been aching for a change. I think I needed a drastic one. I needed something to distract my mind so much that it just didn't have a moment to overthink in the way it has become accustomed.
I don't know what this change will bring about. I don't know if it will hold the answers I'm looking for, I don't know if I'll be given the opportunity not to care for answers anymore. I don't know much when it comes down to it. I do, however, know with certainty that I've made some kind of move forward. Upwards even. Who knows what the future will hold. Que Sera Sera ;)
And now the pontificating is over us I thought I'd use the first Sunday in September to give you a little look into my recent Instagram feed.
Please do pardon the unmade bed but we were packing up that day so I didn't see much point in making it (getting Lee to make it lol) and please do pardon the ridiculous face I'm pulling. My phone is on it's way out and I wasn't sure if it was going to take the picture. This was my Moving Day OOTD. I got warm very quickly. My husband bought me this shirt a couple of Birthdays ago and it's still one of my favourite things despite it being 4 sizes too big. In fact that's what I love about it. I use it as a shirt, a cardi shirt and a nightshirt. Bargain. It was from Peacocks. I still really miss Peacocks.
The occasion came up to celebrate 300 GFC followers here on The Agoraphobic Fashionista. I am so incredibly chuffed that anyone reads my ramblings let alone subscribing for updates. So, thank you all so very much and of course there will be a huge giveaway to celebrate in the appropriate manner ;) I plan to coincide it with my Birthday, double whammy giveaway - gotta love it!
This picture, in this moment, of that day (moving day) cemented my love for our new home. It's even pretty when it's dark, grey and very very wet. In fact, it just makes me love it more.
This is our view from our living room window. How could I not fall in love with it?
And when the day winds down it's all the cosy. A little tip for you all. I used to work for Harry Corry's so therefore I picked up some nifty home furnishing tips I thought I'd share one for you here now. The white curtains you see here were already hung when we arrived. Initially we had headed to get darker, more sumptious curtains for A/W. We found the fab red set in Harry Corry's. In our haste that morning though I hadn't allowed for my golden rule of curtains. Always over measure. For me, personally, I like my curtains to hang luxuriously. I like them to graze the floor and I like them to have a good few natural pleats when drawn. After Lee put the red curtains up on their own I realised they were too small. They didn't graze the floor and they were pulled straight. So! I added the 2 white curtains on the end. This immediately makes a statement focal point in your living room. When open and tied back they give a hint of red and then when drawn for the night it's grand and cosy all in one. There you go lol Sera's Homemaking Tip of the Day.
It's been a long week. There has been nowhere near enough fruit and veg. But! We are all moved in and spending time getting acquainted with our new family home and all the changes that brings around. I think it's safe to say we made a good move.
