It has been so long since I last wrote a proper blog post. Life has been so busy! First of all, we moved into a new place that wasn't quite 'finished' in the sense that, the bed mattress was old and rotten, the washing machine didn't work and there was furniture and stuff that we just didn't need or want. It took quite a while for all of these things to get sorted which was quite frustrating, especially the washing machine not working. Each weekend, Robert and I would have to fill up pots and pans of water to get the machine going and we'd have to do this twice every time we wanted to wash a something. Finally, it got sorted, but it probably took about a month. Then, we were introduced to our new landlord (hence why it took so long because the original landlord sold the house). Our new landlord was not happy with the paint job so asked us if he could get contractors in to paint the entire house. "Sure" we said. Anything to get rid of the nasty yellow and gold speckled paint job that already existed. A week it took them and it was the longest week ever! During that week, everything that we thought was wrong with the place got fixed so it was very busy indeed. Now the place is awesome and it feels like our home. I'll add some before and after pictures up. It is still not quite finished, but it will be by Christmas.
