Once again, I am moving home! This is why the blog has been so quiet recently - with all the stress of sorting out the move, I've just had no energy or enthusiasm for blogposts, despite having loads of content just waiting a write-up! One brilliant part about finally moving though - I get a nerd room!
I'm currently in a two bedroom apartment with a flatmate - this was great when we moved in, but my bedroom is the smaller of the two, meaning I took over the dining area table along with a bunch of storage in the rest of the apartment. Not ideal. The other major thing taking up space at the moment is the amount of gym equipment we have in the apartment - a home gym/weights machine, treadmill, exercise bike and some free weights. We need more space for this.
So, we've found a detached, four-bedroom, large garage, large garden house! This is brilliant - I will have a nice big bedroom, plus a full spare room of my own - this will be my hobby/nerd/reading room. I have already purchased some nice new bookcases and a lovely big desk (both eBay!) and will be having a trip to Ikea for lots of storage! I'll also have a garden to maintain, meaning multiple herb planters and lots of vegetables in the summer. Finally, the garage is perfect to become a home gym - the current plan is to clean it out, wash everything down, paint the walls white, have some fans attached to the walls, some mirrors in there for lifting form and foam matting on the floor.
Evidently I'm over the bloody moon about this! Moving day is tomorrow!
