Happy Pink House.

My MIA was definitely unplanned, however moving house is a lot more stressful than I imagined! (and we’ve not had internet until half an hour ago)
But, the main thing is; I’ve moved into my very own happy pink house.
And yes, it really is a pink house!
Packing was a nightmare, who knew I had so much stuff?! I mean, obviously I only bought the essentials, all 3000 of them!
My room is pretty big, and somehow I managed to fill it with so much rubbish.
I used 4 vacuum pack bags for my clothes, yep 4, with about 15 other bags full of ‘essentials’, like shoes and belts…definitely must haves.
I won’t lie the journey to Wales was literally the most uncomfortable thing ever. 
(apart from when I was on a plane in the middle seat with a very fat fast asleep stranger in the isle and I was desperate for the toilet, but that’s another story) 
We had the left back seat down with things overhanging it by at least 10cm, then you had me and my brother squished in the back next to each other; each holding at least 2 things. I thought I had packing light down to a T…I was wrong. It was a very uncomfortable 6 ½ hours.

It was meant to be a sad face- turned out to be a pout.

Next stop was our house, it’s a gorgeous house- it really is. It’s 4 floors with the bottom one having the living room and the kitchen which is down from the front and flush with the back, two more bedrooms up stairs, then mine and 2 bathrooms on the next floor with 2 attic rooms on the next one up. Mine, although big has original windows; they shake in the wind, are so thin I can hear every word said outside, and have lots of cracks in them..that’ll be fun in the winter.
I’m such a homebody, so I decided to stop myself being homesick I would plaster my room in familiar things. Everyone has said my room is “homely”, I think that’s code for ‘full of rubbish’ haha.

Before... I had a lot of stuff.
 After! My 'getting ready corner'

So that’s our house.
What makes it even better? It came with the best video collection.
We have Flubber, The Jungle Book, The Rescuers, Mulan, The Lion King, Mrs Doubfire; The Classics.
On Saturday we watched James and the Giant Peach, I’d forgotten how amazing the film is haha. However never noticed how obscure being eaten by a ‘Giant Cloud Rhinoceros’ actually was, I used to think they were real!
Now I have internet, I will endeavour to be a good blogger again!
We have freshers week next week, and despite having to get up at 7am every morning; I will have fun. Plenty of OOTN for you I’m sure ;)
Hope you all forgive my absence, and you’re all having a fab September :)

Love, Elizabeth xx
