Last weekend we got some friends together and had a lovely flatwarming party. We cleaned the place from top to bottom, put out lanterns and candles in the garden. My flatmate’s friend prepared us some lovely snacks and we got gussied up for a night out. All in all it was great to show off our place and feel like we actually live here.
The final touch will be all of my things arriving from the states! They gave me an estimate of two weeks – that was a week ago. I feel like that’s rather ambitious but I do have a tiny ray of hope. I’ve definitely learned that whenever I move to a new place, I have to get it feeling like mine as soon as possible, otherwise I continue to feel like I’m just passing through.
I have to say that I’m so proud of my place – I have a beautiful flat in a beautiful city. 🙂
