our first day in our new home had to be documented, obviously, & as i love hjartesmil’s ‘photo an hour’ series so much i took some inspiration. i’m so glad i did & that i’ll always be able to remember some of the little details from this special day.
8:00am: we woke up exhausted after a hectic few days so we treated ourselves & stayed in bed for a while. it was a beautiful day; after a year living on a raised-ground floor you really appreciate seeing fluffy clouds in a bright blue sky.
9:00am: we started to consider getting up but it was hard. is there anything better than bed & a book?
10:00am: we carried on unpacking box after box after box. i spent some time contemplating my shelf layout (as yet still undecided).
11:00am: we got hungry but the kitchen was still boxed-up so our focus was shifted. sidenote: i love my mini cacti!
12:00pm: brunch! m cooked us a pretty awesome first breakfast in our new home.
1:00pm: oh my god, we can see the floor! how pretty are the flowers my nanna sent us? ♥
2:00pm: we move on to the bedroom. our new pillows shed feathers e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.
3:00pm: we hang the wardrobe doors back on & our clothes get in on the unpacking action.
4:00pm: i organise my day-to-day cosmetics & hooray, i can wear make up again!
5:00pm: cabin fever sets in. we go out for a wander around stoke newington.
6:00pm: some serious car porn.
7:00pm: we end up in dalston & decide to treat ourselves to a celebratory meal at one of our favourite restaurants. from nowhere, it starts to rain really heavily so we eat slowly…
9:00pm: we walk home past what i believe to be the least-attractively named eaterie in north london.
10:00pm: we crawl into bed & watch one of my favourite films, true romance.
