The Moving Diaries- Almost there!




Since moving into my own flat is a massive thing for me and will be taking up a lot of my time over the next month or two (so much decorating!), I thought it would be nice to have a little series about it on the blog. This way I can update you about what's happening and also kind of organise my thoughts by writing them down!
Since there are less than two weeks between me signing for my flat and the actual move-in date (which is on Wednesday... eep!), a lot of stuff had to be done in a very short period of time! I've had to buy content insurance, organise getting internet (who knew line rental was so expensive? Who knew line rental was even a thing? Not me!), transferring bills accounts etc etc. Now I have to admit that I am ridiculously useless at this stuff and I had no idea what I was doing. Thankfully my housemate Emma is an absolute babe and has been helping me along the way, sending me what can only be described as essays about line rental and TV licenses when I freak out about it at night and discussing different gas tariffs with me at 1am.
You may ask yourself why on earth I'm doing these things at 1am. Well I'm about a week away from my dissertation deadline at the moment, so I spend my days at the library working on that and then do flat things when I get home. It has been working out for me pretty well and I find that I'm actually being really productive this way and getting everything done!
This week I decided to take a morning off and go to the library late because I was going a bit mad in there, and instead went homeware shopping. I intended to just go and buy a kettle, but obviously I ended up in Homesense again and bought lots of (extremely necessary) things for the house, like a fruit bowl and nice towels. Oh and candles of course. I also got my H&M Home order, which was a very exciting moment, which included essential bits like a rug and not-so-essential bits like a tray and a vase that I had wanted for ages. I'm going to film a homeware haul showing you all the bits and bobs I got but I'll probably do that on Wednesday when I'm at the flat with it all.
I also need to start ordering furniture, which I'm extremely excited about but IKEA deleted my entire basket, which I spent weeks putting together, and now I feel like I'm missing things... comment below with something you think I may have forgotten!

That's it from me right now, let me know if you like these kinds of posts!
