Hello from the chaos that is currently my home. Last week has been extremely busy and tiring as we moved into our new home. Due to unavoidable circumstances, we had to make the move a little sooner than expected which led to us working like a machine. But finally, it’s all done and dusted. We have slowly started to make the new place a bit more like a home now.
I had never seen Queen of the Night before – a flower that blooms only at night once a year. So imagine my surprise when we first entered the house at around midnight and were greeted by a big bloom of Dutchman’s pipe Cactus. Even though I was starving, I totally forgot about the big pack of McD burgers that we had bought on the way. I was quite emotional at that moment, having left our first home to the new tenants and the tiredness of the whole day slowly crashing on me – somehow those flowers at night brought back relief and lessened the anxiety of the move.
Too bad they wilt in the morning.
The next day, excited and pumped up we set to work. Do you want to see what we have done with our abode till now? 🙂
All the shelves and storage that we had bought were sort of customized for the previous home. Plus we now had to fit items from two bathrooms into one. So it was quite tricky to make it look all pretty and organized in the new home. After a lot of brainstorming and trials, we finally agreed on this look of the bathroom. We both love a bit of green in the house – be it living or non-living plants.
Never had we ever argued on the position of the mirror before. You see, the small round mirror is positioned in such a way that my husband can see the back of his head when he stands in front of the bigger mirror. 😛
This weekend we decided to arrange the bookshelf. After scrolling through loads of ideas on Pinterest, we finally mixed and matched designs to come up with this. And I absolutely love it. Right now, it’s the prettiest corner in my house.
Sometimes I have to hold my ground. Especially when my husband insisted on hanging some of my paintings in the Toilet!! Seriously, what in the world mister. Thankfully, most of the rooms already had a lot of hooks in place so while my husband took care of assembling the dining table, I went around the rooms hanging my artworks. I am planning to paint a few larger canvas for the living room. But that will have to wait.
And when we can’t move anymore, we sit by the pool, trying to ease the pain of our tired legs.
Thankfully, it’s Christmas time, so will have a week to set up a few more things before I go back to work. I am still trying to understand the house. All houses have their own weird noises. Like the last one, this one has its own set of creepy sounds that sometimes make me jump. The first few days I had a hard time distinguishing between a door knock and the sound of something falling on the roof. Although I am yet to figure what it is that keeps falling.
While I do that, I hope you all are having a wonderful time with your friends and family.
Pin for later
