Productive and Happy

Today, I feel very accomplished, despite the fact that I lost my bus pass yesterday, and am therefore (mostly) home bound until I get my replacement.

I did my pilates, sorted two loads of laundry, swept my house from top to bottom, unpacked and organised a whole suitcase of books and DVDs, applied for some jobs, and prayed sunnah prayers on top of the fard.

I think I deserve a pat on the back. 👏 Or at least a small round of applause. 😊 Just kidding, but I did well.

Anywho I wanted to share with you guys.
You see when I bought this cupboard,

I had no idea it would prove as much of a hassle as it has. It won’t go up the stairs! Three whole different sets of people have attempted, and failed.

So against my wishes it’s become a permanent fixture of my living room.

This is what I’ve done with it.

One side for excess clothes and…

The other side for ‘entertainment’, with the drawers being used for mail I need to keep, and the magazines I subscribe to.

So from now on I’ll be know as “that chick with a wardrobe in her parlour”. It has a nice ring to it. Don’t ya think?

😅

Moving on, what have you lot gotten up to?

Hope you’re having an, if not happy- then at least productive Wednesday

Moving House! Yippee!

Hello world,
It feels like its been forever… Well such is life sometimes you have lots of time and not much to do/ say and at other times you have lots to say / do and not enough time, as my mother would say. All I can say is Alhamdulilah really (all praise is due to the almighty).
He’s truly wondrous, and works wonders.

I mean just look at this instance, I’ve been bidding for properties since late last year, and praying the whole time for me to get a nice place, when suddenly I get a call from my Careworker telling me I’m in first position for a house I’d bid for like two weeks ago, that I thought I’d been rejected for. :O. As you’d expect I am pretty chuffed.

I’ll be going for the official viewing on Tuesday, me being me though, I went down to the flat on the day that I heard to scout the area, and take measure of the environment. It doesn’t seem too bad. I also had a sneaky peak though one of the windows and saw a little bit of the kitchen. Can you say wood laminate… At least that’s what it looked like.

I even took a picture of my new front door.

My uncles coming down this Sunday to look at it with me, then Tuesday’s the viewing, after that I have another appointment for signing the tenancy etc, and then I’ll probably move in by the weekend or latest on the Monday. Woot!

I hope inside is as nice or nicer than outside… Then it’ll be perfect… Actually it’s pretty perfect, so I’ll officially not be ‘homeless’ yay!

Do y’all have any moving tips? 🙂
