Celebrate The Small Things: 9 September

Our moving in date has finally been confirmed and it’s really soon. When this first crept up on us I was feeling overwhelmed by the idea, but now I’m just really excited about it. I bought my first items for the house: a hoover, kettle, toaster and iron. I didn’t think buying these types of things could ever be fun, but it’s that idea of being able to take more control over your life and having a space to do what you want with. Been to Ikea today. They do nice hot dogs.

I’d also like to mention how generous people have been in helping us to get started. We’ve had furniture and financial support offered to us as we’ve gone through this process. I’m really grateful as it takes a lot of the pressure off. It’s also lovely to know and acknowledge that no matter how alone we feel, there are people there that do have our best interests in mind. I just hope that I can repay the favour some day to show how thankful I am.


Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.

    That’s so exciting! It’s true that moving and having your own space requires a financial commitment, but the things you buy will last you a long time. Yay for people helping you out! It’s great to have caring friends. 🙂
