I am now in my new home. I have gone from a tiny studio to a place with actual rooms and even a garden – so it feels so big!
The studio was starting to feel a little on the cramped side, maybe I just have too much stuff, so I wanted somewhere bigger. It is nice to have this extra space and more of a home feel rather than, as my father put it, a human storage box.
Living in a small space isn’t inherently bad of course but in order to make it work you have to be creative with the space. Doing this takes time, energy, money, and the freedom to be able to make alterations.
While my rent has increased it is worth it to come home to a nicer place. The previous place was a loft with only one window and thus could be quite dingy. Here I have lots of windows and airy space – a vast improvement.
I now have a proper kitchen with an actual oven and enough space for my pans – before they were shoved onto a trolley and would fall off if not arranged exactly correctly.
I can now have guests if I want to – in the last place it would have felt like we were all in my bedroom – and a weird bedroom as it had a microwave in it!
So, in conclusion, I finally have a reason for having a silly number of mugs!
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
