How do you measure - measure a year?

Hi all,

Firstly an apology for the time between posts recently. I have been super busy and life has taken over, but in a good way. I can honestly say I have never felt happier, more hopeful and more excited for what the future can bring me. I finally got the notice that the flat will be mine in October! So so happy that this journey is coming to its final chapter, and then my new story and life can begin. This year has truly had a great impact on me. I changed jobs (and from what it looks like will probably change again soon - the effort!), found peace within myself even more, met relationships goals with bae and now will finally be moving out to our own place.

This isn’t to say living at home has not had its fun times, because it has. But time has come for me to spread my wings, and rise from the ashes like a Phoenix into my new life. It may be tricky at first to manage (I am still to visit home regularly - to keep the peace as my sister says), but will have more freedom in the weekdays I can cook, get back to the gym, regain a social life, but most of all get to spend more time with bae. That is priceless. Best of all we get to design the space for us, to our taste and get to enjoy the feeling of knowing we have our own slice of bliss waiting for us whoever we want it.

The only tricky part is we haven’t seen the flat in real life just yet. The trouble with new build properties is that they will ainly allow access when they want you to, so we have to wait another week or so to finally see our new home. That makes one thing difficult; and that’s furniture shopping. We have bought a couch (I say sofa usually but bae prefers couch so I will adapt), and we only hope it will fit. Otherwise we will be pivoting on the stairwell a la Ross from Friends. We should be fine though, I have great spatial awareness, and think it will work. The feeling of buying my first piece of furniture for the flat made the dream even more of a reality, and there is more to come. We already knows we can survive Ikea, so we know we will be fine throughout this whole process. And who doesn’t love shopping? Lol.

So here’s to exciting times in the coming weeks, with more busy days and nights making the flat a home. But honestly, I knew I found home the minute I looked into bae’s eyes two years ago. I knew I found home in his arms and heart the first time we kissed. I knew we would centre each other and make each other happy. Our home was always going to be with each other, and long may that last.

Welcome to my house

Hi All, I got the best news this week! I’m going to be a home (flat) owner!!!! For those that know me and my story you will know that this is a big deal. It means I can finally move out of my parents place and start living life the way I want to, and in pride month no less. What better opportunity could I ask for? It means that I can live with the love of my life, and do all the cute and fun couple-y things that we were always meant to do.  It means I can just be me. That’s the main point really. No more hiding who I am, no more having to answer to others. Free to be who I want, go where I want, come back to the flat whoever I want. It’s not like I’m in a jail sentence at home, but the comments made on how late I come back home do take their toll. I’m the type of person who wants it to be easy, don’t cause too much of a fuss and that way no fights or arguments happen. I mean I am human and I will provoke sometimes, but for the most part I’m easy going and want things to be

Out

Hi all, Hope everyone is keeping safe from the pandemic and that the pressures are starting to ease off a little in terms of lockdown. It has definitely been a strange year, and it will continue to be for a little while longer. I honestly feel we should write off 2020 and forget it ever happened. Despite all the tragedies and despair there have been nice things to come from it. People are being friendlier towards each other and helping neighbours. They are innovating in times of need and helping out in any way that they can. It will be tough to move forward, and the effects of the lockdown will last for a generation, but we will endure. My post is about a little gem that I found on Disney+ called Out. It's a short animation about a closeted gay man who is struggling to tell his parents about his boyfriend, and the reason he is moving because of it. This is a first for Disney, as they have never really showed an out and proud gay character in anything before. They have alluded

I could be your private island

 Hi all, It's been a while since I last wrote a post, and to be honest not much has gone on in my world. Except for a pandemic, starting a new job and celebrating one year in the flat. So yeah, not much but also a lot! This year has been crazy, and it doesn't look like it will get any less crazy anytime soon. The pandemic is still rife, and affecting everyone and everything. I truly hope you are all keeping well and trying to maintain social distance with face coverings and hand gels galore. It has affected all walks of life, has made us adapt to a 'new normal' and has forced us to re-think our daily lives in general. One aspect that has affected everyone is travel. Be it local travel on public services, or the all elusive holiday abroad, we have all been affected. Bae has not been able to see his parents since the beginning, and every little sliver of a chance he gets to go back, the rules inevitably change and it becomes harder. I for one am tired of not having a holi
