Moving continent is exhausting but we’ve had some hysterical moments throughout.
We have not stopped! After getting the keys to our flat on Friday afternoon, we have done furniture shops, food shops, coffee stops, pulled in favours, fitted in a ddpyoga workout everyday and had a laugh all at the same time.
In amongst all of the madness, there was one episode, I just had to share with you, that we really didn’t foresee!
We ordered this beautiful white bed frame in a lovely minimal style. We went all out and matched with draws and cabinets – I’ve never been so excited over furniture! Unpacking it felt great and we were both thinking “Finally! A bed set that matches”. In the seven years we’ve been together, we’ve never really thought about furniture aesthetics, until now!
The bed should have taken 40 minutes to assemble.
We unpacked it and saw there was a box entitled electrics… ah lovely… maybe some lights to surround the head board! That would look cool.
(Keep in mind at this point, it was also labelled “reading light”).
After nearly 3 hours of assembling and calling in another friend to help, we finally had the finished article. Woohoo! But let’s just take a moment…
I love it because it’s fun, but let’s be honest, it really doesn’t look “wholesome”!
And I really wouldn’t have labelled it as a reading light – trust me, we have tried! No way can you read with them on!
