Shift


I haven't been a very committed blogger for the first month-and-a-bit of this year (really, February already?!) which is a shame because 2012 is shaping up to possibly be my greatest year... so far! In addition to making a conscious effort to improve my health, I recently got a great opportunity at work and... now I have more news!

You may or may not have wondered about my lack of arty-posts recently, and my lack of posts in general. This is mostly due to that fact that only one thing has been occupying my mind, and is something I couldn't share until it was confirmed. Which yesterday it finally was! The apartment my wonderful aunt rented for several years when I was a teenager is available again, and with her connections Charlie and I (and Wallace!) have nabbed it. We're moving! I am so crazy excited. Objectively, it's just a one bedroom flat with the one stand out feature of an amazing view of the city (see a fraction of it above, and excuse the average phone photo... you can bet there'll be many a superior image uploaded once we're there!). But it's the type of place that as a teenager living at home with Mum and Dad, I always dreamed of living in as an independent adult- of course I didn't imagine it would be the exact same apartment my aunt used to live in, but that makes it even more perfect.

I can't wait to move in, and I'm so grateful that Charlie's understood how much living there means to me and agreed to it! We will be moving in just a few weeks (the landlord is doing some renovations before we can take over) so there is SO MUCH to do before then! It's lucky I love packing and setting up house!

Go you, that's awesome! All the best for the move, and enjoy gazing over that view. I know exactly what you mean about dreaming of an inner city apartment life as a kid, which was why I was so happy to land the place I'm in now.
