More reflections

I know I've mentioned the move about 200 times, but with it steadily approaching I find myself reflecting on the situation more and more. My boyfriend and I have been living in a lovely part of London (Muswell Hill) but of course the rent is far too high to continue living there. The plan was always to only move there for a year, then move back to my mum's flat- she would have been spending most of the year in France, before she got ill. Anyway I have hopefully secured myself a tiny flat in the housing cooperative we're part of which means cheap as chips rent (in return for being on a committee and going to really dull meetings), and living near to my mum, which is a happy medium I think. BUT I won't be moving there until August, so there's still a few weeks of me at home, and D at his parents. I think we're moving back in together (with the cat, obvs), although I suppose these few weeks apart will be good for us, to see whether we do want that or not.
I don't know, I guess I've always been one of those reflective nostalgic types. It's the end of an era!

To add to my midi collection I picked this one up in Primark for £5! You'll have to take my word on the length however (the first two photos are with the old cam..)

  4. You are so lucky to have had the chance to live in Muswell Hill - it's lovely! I hope everything works out with the move, it's not only stressful but can bring up a lot of emotions!
    This skirt is such a bargain and very pretty too.

  6. I think time apart is good because you either realise how much you miss eachother or you enjoy the time apart - its a tell-tale as to where your relationship is going!! Hopefully you guys will miss eachother!
    Its good that your going to be near your mum, never take for granted the time you have together (as you know I found this out too late with my dad), she will also need you close at this difficult time!!
    If you ever need a chat - I'm here!!

  7. Why does London living have to be so damn expensive?! It's good that you found a way of getting cheap rent even if it involves dull meetings! I hope you enjoy your new flat. Thanks for following by the way. I'm gonna follow your blog back xx

  9. Fully know what you mean, I've just finished uni and keep thinking back to all the good times! I lived in a house of 6 with my boyfriend but now we are apart until we can afford to rent a place and at least we know that we can live apart and together, except for my needy phone calls to him haha xxxx

  10. That is really goo that your getting a flat for cheap rent, makes the dull meetings almost worth it. It will be years before I am able to move out :(
    Love the skirt, I spotted it myself!

  12. I think it's great that you have decided to stay living together and close to your mum, it sounds like a good compromise. I wish they had housing cooperatives in Sydney, the rent is ridiculous!

  21. I too am a very nostalgic person, I understand the need for change but often forget that with new beginnings new ends are inevitable. Good luck with the move and changes approaching dearest, I know you are strong and will be able to handle everything that gets thrown at you while still being the fantastic girl you are.

    P.S. LOVE the new header!

    xx and hugs

  23. Good luck with your move! I think being able to move or make some kind of change is good every now and then. It keeps things interesting. :)

    Your purse is gorgeous! And of course, your cat. I'm a cat person, so I know the "I rule from this bed" personality all too well. ;)

  24. That skirt was a great buy! I love a great midi skirt, and the floral print on yours is really lovely. (I'm also loving the photo of your cat looking extremely comfortable and satisfied with him or herself!)

  32. This "Housing Cooperative" thing sounds interesting, when I first read it I thought you were talking about moving into a housing commission estate type of place full of youths in tracksuits :P
