Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)! Grab a cup of coffee and share with us!
I am sitting here in my new house writing this coffee share for the first time. We moved in earlier this week, and it is just starting to feel like home here. I’ve spent the majority of this week finding the right place for things, and making my daughter’s and my room ready. Starting with my daughter’s room first of course. I couldn’t place her new bed where I planned to put it, since it was an inch too long..Her room is tiny and very cozy, but this slight change of plan throw me off little bit, since we had to move a closet, and take down a big shelf (that was pretty well attached to the wall,) to fit her bed at the only wall that was long enough (if I didn’t want to place her bed directly under the window and cover the only heater in the room.) In the end it turned out great. We are going to print some new photos and decorate her walls with, as soon as we can agree on which ones. All fun stuff.
The only thing that took some time in my room was to put my new bed together. It went pretty smooth. I did that yesterday afternoon. I have actually not slept in my bed yet, since it had such a strong smell of new when it was time to go to bed yesterday. (I’m very sensitive to strong smells.) It seems comfortable though, I’ll try it out tonight. I still have some decorating to do in my room as well. I like to not hurry with the decorating, and live in a place for a while until I know how I want to make it my own. I’m a minimalist and I don’t want lots of stuff or decorations, but the ones I have I am very picky with. Very picky..
I do like our new rental house a lot. It has a unique charm. It is more than 100 years old, but is completely renovated on the inside. It is small, the minimalist in me like that. It has everything we need (2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and a full bath/laundry-room) on less than 500sqf.
View from my bedroom. I love the old stonewall, so typical for the Swedish countryside.
How are you doing? How was your holidays? Please tell me all about your week. Can I get you a refill on that coffee?
