Life Lately: A sofa delivery, a new baby and overwhelming happiness

dfs sofa

Bonjour mes amis! A combination of being super busy, having no internet at home and being a little bit lazy mean that this is the first time I’ve blogged in just over a week. A lot has happened over the last ten days that deserve a mention so pull up a pew and lend me your ear…

After what feels like forever (i.e 6 weeks) I finally moved into my house.
It’s been a long time coming but last weekend my boyfriend and I finally moved into our house. It’s only small but it’s perfect, with loads of storage, a patio and built in wardrobes. It’s close to town, we have parking at the back and BONUS there’s a park at the top of the street and loads of dogs pass by our house.

And on that very same day, my nephew decided to make an appearance, totally stealing my thunder.
So we were moving in when a text came through from my Mum ‘Your sister thinks she’s in labour’. I laughed it off, saying that my sister always steal my thunder and never let’s me have the limelight but lo and behold, 12 hours later Reggie was with us. He’s super cute (just like his sister) and I’m dead chuffed that my sister has one of each sex.

My sofa <3 was delivered on Monday, completing the interiors.
For the first two days in our house we were sat on garden chairs (which was very uncomfortable) but when I came home from work on Monday the sofa had pride of place in our living room. It’s so comfy and cosy, I’m so pleased with it.

I joined the dark side and got an iPhone 7.
My Samsung broke (post to come) and it actually ended up being cheaper to get a whole new phone so I opted for an iPhone 7 – My very first iPhone. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get an iPhone as I love it, so much faster than my Samsung was.

I paid off my Macbook and my Argos card.
Last week I made the decision to take a rather large chunk of my savings and pay off the outstanding amount on both my Macbook and my Argos card. It made me do a little cry seeing that much money go out of my bank but at the end of the day it’s for the best as I’m not going debt free into my new pad and have about £150 spare a month.

Oh and I tried Five Guys for the first time.
Err yeah, so this isn’t quite as huge as the other things I mentioned but it’s just as exciting (in my eyes anyway). Mum treated us to a Five Guys when we went to visit Reggie and omfg, it was quite possibly THE BEST cheeseburger I’ve had the pleasure of eating. The cajun fries were delicious aswell. Life changing.

In short, the last couple have weeks have been really good. I’m the happiest I’ve been in ages and when I’m at work I can’t wait to get home and chill on my sofa. Things are pretty good at the moment and I hope with the lighter nights and improving weather things only continue to get better.

How was your week?

    I still need to try Five Guys. You sound so happy in your new home, it sounds perfect but i'm especially jealous of the sofa, I really want a new one! Oh and congrats on your nephew too 🙂
