so, this week did not go as planned. went to the office on Monday, worked, came home… and then, started feeling a bit weird. four days later and i could finally get out of bed this morning, after enduring the stomach flu of death. i feel like maybe everything is heightened when you’re pregnant? i’m just thankful to have crested the worst of it, but unfortunately that means this week was without posts (i could not even browse the internet, that’s how bad it was guys)
here’s what’s been happening lately, to make up for it.
we redid the floors in our study, which was a loooooooooong time coming! this room used to be a balcony with concrete flooring, then it was enclosed and the previous owners carpeted it (yuck) so we found a guy to install new parquet flooring to match the rest of the flat, and then also repainted the walls white. one of these days it will have to be turned into a nursery 🙊
so we will have to put up some blockout curtains next…!
above was the colour before we painted it.
this is just a corner from our bedroom. i will do a proper home tour one of these days.
this is the cat who belongs to our apartment block, who hates everyone except for the caretaker. i am determined to befriend him, but so far his love eludes me.
our office is also getting there. we got a new couch, which will be good for pregnancy napping.
we’ve been looking for some new pieces for our place from Space for Life (we just ended up buying a bunch of mid-century planters) still on the lookout for the perfect chest of drawers for our bedroom and a new couch..?
