How are you getting on?
What an eventful couple of weeks I have had! But I am so pleased to finally catch up with you all and say we are officially settled in our new home.
Last Thursday I picked up the keys and from then all the way through the weekend it was non stop packing, moving and cleaning.
Most of our things were moved over on Saturday morning which left the afternoon plus Sunday to fully clean our old apartment from top to bottom. You think you live in a clean home but that ‘deep clean so we get our rental deposit back’ is always a killer.
But we got there and Sunday night was the first night in our new home, nicknamed ‘The Treehouse’ because when you’re inside it feels like a house up in the trees. Can I just say how much I love being surrounded by trees? Brings such a comfort and cosiness – especially the massive lemon tree we have growing outside our kitchen window. Simply stunning.
Most of our boxes are unpacked and everything is finding its place. I will show you pictures soon once we have sorted everything out fully. It’s such a lovely apartment though and simply perfect for the two of us. Definitely feels like home.
What else has been happening?
Well for the past 6 weeks I have been a part of a community choir learning how to sing! It has been so much fun and dare I say I have found a hidden hobby? Monday was the last lesson though and we had a concert to follow in which our friends and family were invited. It was great to sing with everyone and show our loved ones the 7 songs we had learned throughout our time. Did I also mention it was in our local library? The acoustics were incredible! I couldn’t stop smiling and the champagne reception afterwards certainly continued those smiles.
Other highlights included getting an obscene amount of Lindt chocolate from our newly opened Lindt store (we needed a moving treat) and also finding that they stocked my favourite Lindt bar!
Getting these gorgeous flowers from my parents and brother.
Trying new coffee shops in our area – such a lovely little community.
And only training twice this week. We took a few days off after moving as our bodies needed it and we decided to go for a coffee and walk this morning instead of training – was definitely the better option for my health that’s for sure.
My weekend plans this week – Saturday – Walking (!) to our local farmers market, Ikea and food prepping. Sunday – The Bloody Long Walk! Yes David and I will be walking 35km (22 miles) on Sunday starting in central Perth and winding round the city and suburbs ending at the beach. I am totally looking forward to it – catch me on my insta-stories!
But time is precious on a Friday/ weekend so will let you go! Hope you have a fun fab weekend!
Tell me what you have been up to recently.
Do you like to sing?
Any tips on what to do with all those lemons, apart from the lemon hot water we have each morning?
