Our New Den

We're not quite at the stage where I'd be happy to give you a full guided tour of our messy, disorganised flat, but the reality is we may never be. We go for a very 'lived in' look around here. I thought that I would share a few bit with you though, give you a bit of a taste of the place we now call home.

Top left to bottom right: 'The Study', the den/book nook under Kit's bed, the lounge/where I sleep, the entrance to Kit's room with his latest art project (lifesize drawings of him and me).

Kit has the biggest, warmest and brightest room in the flat. I wanted him to have space of his own to play in this flat partly so that the whole flat didn't look like a toystore, but also because he is at the age now where he is happy playing alone and I didn't want us to be under each others feet all the time. I'm sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge at the moment, but I do have a small single bedroom too (which is a dumping ground work in progress at the moment) it is going to mainly be a craft room though, as the lounge is warmer. I've separated part of the lounge off as a sleeping and TV den using bookcases, and the other half (next to the kitchen) is a dining room/study. I'm zoning in an attempt to make a small flat seem bigger. We've begged, borrowed and thrifted furniture to fill what we didn't have before (although we did Ikea a few bits). We are almost done but I can't imagine it will ever stay tidy enough to take nice photos!

All Change

We've been gone for a while. It all got a bit stressful for a while, but now we are gradually getting life going again. We've been busy re-nesting in our new home, in a new town, in a new life.

Over the summer we left our little flat on the South London/Kent border and moved into a slightly bigger (although not significantly!) flat on the Sussex/English Channel border. We now live by the sea in Worthing, and Kit is enjoying splashing in freezing cold water and drawing in the sand. I'm enjoying my new fifteen minute commute rather than the old hour (if I was lucky) one. Kit is settling into school, almost. We've been busy having fun and re-exploring the town and surrounds where I grew up. I'm looking forward to Kit growing up here too. (His only complaint is that with the ten-minute walk from our flat we aren't close enough to the beach).
