New Beginnings...

new home

Oh my goshhhh, these past few weeks have felt like an absolute whirlwind. In case you didn't know, me and Lewis now own a house! I still can't believe it actually happened. It felt like we had talked about it for so long, if somebody had said to me that I would have been in my own home in June, I would have just laughed.

It hasn't all been plain sailing though, the amount of stress to even get to this point was unreal. We got completely messed around with the house we looked at before this one and as much as it seemed like the end of the world at the time, everything happens for a reason and this house is just the most perfect little thing and a trillion times better than the other one. I'm not even just saying that, the other house was a dive in comparison, but I think we were just so blinded by a house that we could afford, we didn't see the bigger picture. I feel like this cute little home was truly meant to be. It's funny, but there have been so many little signs throughout the process too, I knew I was doing the right thing. The house smelt exactly like my nan's house used to when we went for the viewing and there are always Robin's in the garden - my Gramps' favourite bird. I like to think that this is a little message from the both of them.

Since moving in, I have been going through stages of feeling really anxious. I have wanted to live with Lewis for ages, but I have never actually been away from my mum and dad. I know it sounds silly coming from a 26 year old, but I have always been at home with them and the thought that it wouldn't be like that anymore petrified me. I absolutely adore them both and just got it into my head that as soon as I left something awful was going to happen. I am getting better though, even if I do still pop in to see them everyday. I don't want it to sound like I am ungrateful or anything but leaving was such a big thing for me, it has taken me a little while to adjust. It probably helps that we are only a few streets away, when I say a few streets, it's literally like 500 steps aha, which probably makes this whole paragraph sound silly, but it has helped so much that I can literally just pop my head in if I feel like I'm starting to panic.

I am hoping that this explains why I have had to put the bloggle on a bit of a back burner for the last few months, the stress of buying and the anxiety of actually leaving home has just been a bit too much for me. I feel like I am in such a good place right now though, my house nerves have settled and I can't wait to decorate the Funko room that me and Lewis have planned, so that I can show you all the geeky goodness.

Thank you all for sticking around.

  1. Congrats on your new home! I'm so jealous, I wish I could afford a house already but I'm still only part time and Edinburgh is so expensive. Honestly I'd feel exactly the same as you about moving out - I've only known living with my parents so I feel it would be pretty scary to actually adult and be away from them and everything. This must be such an exciting time for you,and I'm so happy for you both! xx

  2. Congratulations on your new home, it must be super satisfying to have something that shows how hard work pays off! I'm 25 and still live at home so I completely understand your nerves about leaving your family behind haha! Please, please, please do a Funko Room Tour post once it's up and running, it sounds amazing! xx

  4. Congrats on your new home Emily! It's great living near parents, something comfortable that you know and like you say, it's great just being able to pop round. My mum recently moved a lot closer to me and it's made such a difference.
    Have you already moved in? I love the finding new homes for everything stage, have had to resort to reorganising the flat every few months instead!
    Please tell me more about the funko room?! We've only got 4 so they're on a little shelf in the hall. Can't let myself keep buying them, I know I won't stop! x
