odds & ends

+ [personal profile] happydork and I successfully moved house and are settling in nicely to East London. It's simultaneously very strange to have left [personal profile] purplefringe, Awesome Housemate K and the cat behind (though to be fair I still see them lots), and very nice to be setting up our own place. Our decorating scheme is ALL THE COLOURS, and everything's very light and airy. Also now full of giant beanbags. Today we got bookshelves and finally unpacked our books, which instantly makes everything look better. Home is where my Harry Potter books are.

+ Having some time out from work is working out pretty well for the moment - I have been spending lots of time setting up the flat and installing things, and I'm feeling a lot better in pretty much every conceivable way compared to a month ago. But on Tuesday I'll be signing on and then it's job hunting a go go. I still don't really know what it is that I want to do, but there are a couple of job ads that look promising in the meantime.

+ I am slowly trying to get myself to remember how to string sentences together. I barely write any more; no fiction, no journal entries, and even my tweets are mostly retweets or replies to other people. So, hi, internet. I miss you. Let's chat more. <3

Home is where my Harry Potter books are.

Oh, the new place sounds lovely. And it probably says something about my homemaking priorities that my first thought on reading that paragraph was, "I wonder which covers her Harry Potters have?" Because I could imagine the brightly coloured kids ones looking great in a bright all-the-colours rooms with bean bags and sunlight.

congrats on the move! Your place sounds lovely, both with the bright colors and the books, bookshelf placement and organizing is absolutely my favorite thing to do in a new place!
