I love cream teas, in fact I always find an excuse to stop at cute little coffee shops to enjoy a pot of tea and a warm scone. There's just nothing nicer than them. Since I've moved house there's no where really around here where I can get my scone fix, so I was happy when I received a hamper full of delicious cream tea treats.
Not only was there scones complete with jam and clotted cream, but tea, fudge, the most amazing strawberry and cream biscuits, and two bottles of delicious cider. There was far too much for me to enjoy on my own, although I'd give it a good try, so I thought I'd be nice and let Chris have some too.
It's been nearly two months now since we finally completed on our flat. The whole process took around 5 months, which I know might seem quite quick, but we were told it would only be 8 weeks, so it felt pretty long for us! The past two months have been spent packing, unpacking, painting, buying IKEA furniture, and trying to put it together. But now at long last, it's finally starting to feel a bit more like a home.
After buying pretty much the whole of IKEA, we finally have all the furniture we need, minus a dining room table. We're planning on getting one soon, but at the moment there's still a pile of boxes in the space we want it in that we haven't got around to unpacking. Oops. I'm pretty excited as we're now finally at the more decorating stage of the moving process, meaning I can finally buy pretty cushions and things to stick up on the walls, as there all looking a bit plain at the moment! I want to try and do some home crafty things, like knit some cushions or something. I also need to work out some more storagey things, as we don't have much space in our little flat.
The whole moving out thing feels a little weird, and I still haven't got my head around the fact this is ours, still doesn't quite feel real. Although the sadness of having to pay our own mortgage and bills and has helped. It's nice to finally have our own place though, and somewhere we can now call home.
Technically as it's the end of August, it's not really summer anymore. I say technically because I've still got a wardrobe of summer clothes I haven't touched this year, and I'm pretty sure there's only been about 4 days where it's been hot. Regardless of it not being that warm, I've still been wearing a lot of sandals this 'summer', and to do so I like to make sure my feet are 'summer ready'.
