The last four months, in purchases

1) We bought a house.

It needs A LOT of work – we spent the first few weeks living/eating/sleeping, in the living room since it was the only sort of liveable space. That nice list of things I was going to do, to enjoy Autumn fell by the wayside pretty fast. Between work and house renovations, I’ve not had much spare time. But I do now know how to cap off pipes, fix a stop cock and remove a bathroom suite – so it’s been time well spent.

2) We bought a bed and mattress. After much research we decided on the Emma and it is one of the best things we’ve ever bought. Maybe even better than the house.Ikea Hemnes Bed, Black

3) I bought dungarees for decorating purposes, but I love them so much I don’t ever want to take them off. Maybe we should’ve moved to Chorlton instead?.Gap Dungarees, Farrow and Ball Sudbury Yellow

4) I bought a sander, my first ever power tool. B&Q is my favourite place to hang out these days.
