The Big Move
I had never found living at home at the age of 21 to be a problem nor even thought about moving out.
However when me and my boyfriend got together, it became clear quite quickly we simply clicked with eachother right from the beginning. My family home was always pretty hectic and cramped, my bedroom was the smallest room in the house only able to fit a single bed and definitely no space for a wardrobe - my room soon became nicknamed "my little cuboard" and this by no means was exaggerated, it really was the smallest thing ever. My boyfriend moved out of his family home in Wisbech, into a small single rented room, to be closer to both me and his work.
After around 8 months of my boyfriend renting his bedroom in his shared house his landlord announced she was going to be selling the house. Which of course made things very stressful for my boyfriend as this was unexpected, sudden and so close to Christmas. We had a serious chat about our relationship and decided instead of him renting another bedroom it would actually work out much cheaper to find somewhere to move in together and obviously half the rent together.
So the hunt began and soon after around 2-3 months of looking around we viewed a gorgeous loft flat. This flat was something we weren't particularly looking for but it is safe to say we both fell in love with it immediately and without a second thought we accepted it there and then!!
So yes 2 weeks before Christmas 2015 we had accepted a place to live together and fallen in love with the place - moving your lifes worth of stuff into somewhere new is way more hard work than you'd ever realise until you are in that situation. However we got in, got decorated made our place a home and even added our very first Christmas tree!
I personally found putting my own stamp on our place perfectly easy as I'm a very arts and crafty person and planned how I wanted everything to look and be before we'd even moved in!
Before I do this I just want to take the time to say how proud I am of our little home, how much I love living here and to simply say I 100% am so pleased I went ahead in taking the steps to move out, and into my very own home. I can honestly say living with my boyfriend has bought us closer together, more in love and it's such a pleasure to live with my absolute best friend and other half. - Sorry for the cheesiness!
Of course this flat is our start of hopefully a very happy life together and I honestly can't wait for the time to become right to upgrade to a home with a beautiful garden to have summer barbecues and garden parties in.
Are you thinking of moving out of your family home, whether it be alone or with a partner? Let me know your thoughts.
