Up above the world

Hi there! I'm using the opportunity of having borrowed a wifi dongle for a short update from the moving front, since I have no idea when the telephone technician will come by to activate our internet. Because we moved house!

I didn't say much about it here, but we've been looking for a bigger flat since August (and nope, I'm not pregnant), and actually already had a new tenant asking to move into our old flat at the end of October, way before we even found a new flat. I found a wonderful one at the beginning of the month (after several rejections from other landlords, I was getting quite a bit panicky) and we only got the confirmation and signed the lease a week ago. And then we moved in on Saturday! Crazy! Don't ask about how many boxes we packed up in a week...

Anyway, now we're here, in an apartment almost twice as big as our old, tiny, 1.5 room apartment, with two balconies, an amazing view, a huge wardrobe (yet to be assembled), a nice little sewing nook (yay!)... There's lots of stuff to be assembled (including the kitchen), everything is full of boxes, some rooms don't have light fixtures yet... But I already love it here. You'll be getting pictures as soon as the rooms aren't full of boxes and half-assembled IKEA furniture anymore.
I leave you with a view of the sunset from our 4th floor balcony, yesterday. :)
