Getting in the Christmas Spirit 🎄

I blame all you Americans because you do Christmas decorations in such a big way !  It must be catching because this is HUGE for me. 😉 Sorry I couldn’t take the photo without my reflection! Yes I could have hung from the ceiling…

First Apartment Residential Meeting.🌹

We have our next apartment meeting next Friday, here is what happened at the last one 😬😉   Picture the scene, John and I walking into the residential lounge in our apartment block for our first ever residential meeting. There were quite a few…

I had a dream.🌹

      John is full of cold at the moment which I find hard to believe when we are living in this sub tropical apartment, not using the heating because it’s obviously coming up from the apartments below……. anyway we both got up…

Our new rug is really a magic carpet!🌹

    My daughter and her family called yesterday and she noticed our new rug which she thought was very nice. I told her about trying to iron the creases out of it. Now bearing in mind that she is a technical engineer at…

Royal visit! Apartment Living take 2

  After finally calming down after feeling the effect of the full moon,  I am now on a high after resuming my long term habit of  (eating marshmallows) John was watching me stuff them in my mouth so I stopped to tell him that…

My new baby has arrived, part 2 of the great rug debate!

    Finally afte waiting for 24 hours my baby has arrived, after lots of puffing and panting (from John)the new baby is here, but omg how wrinkled is this baby, it almost resembles an old man! (Sorry that’s a sexist comment) it resembles…

The great rug debate!

    Yesterday morning after a very sleepless night due to high winds like I have never heard before, I got up feeling restless and announced to John that I thought we needed a new rug for the lounge Nothing strange in that I…

The first day of the year, apartment living. 🌹

Year We had a visit from my daughter and her family this afternoon, they had walked down to our apartment and were all very cold when they arrived.  Very soon they were saying how warm it was , even though we had no heating…

Apartment Living, Christmas Day

  Well I must say we are loving this apartment living, after living here 26 days we have got used to the climate change (not outside) but in the apartment, after living in an older house, which for me personally I found cold, we…

Apartment living continued

  I am pleased to report that we had the best nights sleep ever last night after making a few changes in the bedroom. Our feet now face North, the bed has been turned around The blackout blind has been fitted to the window,…

Apartment Living.

  Our memory foam mattress appears to have lost its memory in our recent house move . Either that or its protesting about being moved twice in the last year, maybe the removal men bent it into four when they put it into the lift…

Countdown to moving complete

    Well I can’t believe that three weeks tomorrow was the first time we viewed this apartment and now we have moved in. We were not even looking to move, we had put our names down two and a half years ago but…

Moving Day part 1

    Moving out day today, the removal men came around 12.15pm two young men both very quiet which I later found out they were from Lithuania and could speak only a little English.  They were so polite and such hard workers too. I…

Countdown to moving 5

  Finally it is all coming together, after purchasing a curtain pole our dark grey velvet curtains are now hanging in the double door window in the lounge, along with two new light grey blinds in the dining and kitchen area. The masking tape…

Countdown to moving 3

  If anyone had told me that we would move yet again this year I would have laughed, to move four times in the last two years is unbelievable. When I met John I lived in my little one bed flat, which although it…

Countdown to moving 2

  Had another fun filled day painting the new apartment, I have to say I am very pleased so far with the apple white paint.  It’s  looking lovely,  very mellow and calming. Our outlook changes by the day. We can see much more of…

Countdown to moving.

  Now back from a few days away visiting family in Cornwall we are back to it getting the apartment ready for our forthcoming move.  I took a few photographs today. Its hard not to stand and look out of the window and do…
