Word of the Week | Home

HOME

All the productivity of last week definitely rubbed off on me, as I was ticking off the to-dos pretty well this week also... I will admit though, some of them had been sitting there for a while awaiting attention! I've been busy in the home this week, not just with my usual day to day tasks, but working on a couple of small projects also.

We've been in this new house of ours for roughly six months now, and we still have a few unpacked boxes dotted around - which is kind of shameful to admit really! So this week I've tackled some of those, including the dreaded box of papers that needed sorting and filing etc. We've finally added the finishing touches to the living room, with a couple of decorative pieces and also cushions now in situ. And lastly, but by no means least, I've rearranged our bedroom ever so slightly in order for me envision and measure up for a new bookshelf. I already have the one bookshelf in our room, which isn't overflowing or anything, but I'm very particular with how I organise things and so another would be lovely - thankfully we have the space for it!

Honestly, six months in I did think we'd be all settled by now - barring some of the bigger projects we have to tackle - but we're getting there, slowly but surely.

  1. It's definitely the perfect time of year to tackle home projects, we have been doing the same. A new bookcase sounds very exciting indeed. Have a great weekend x

  2. How lovely that you are becoming settled and enjoying your new home. I think we still had unpacked boxes longer than six months after moving in. I have two bookshelves in the bedroom, hubby thinks I shouldn't have so many books in the bedroom, but I love them.

  4. Sounds like you've had a very busy week and glad the last of the boxes are being unpacked. I have to confess that we still have some boxes in our garage that haven't been properly unpacked and put away and we've been in our house seven years! #WotW

  5. Unpacked boxes soon become part of the furniture. Always think you need to live in a house for a while to decide where you want everything. I used to move things round on a regular basis. Nice to fit in another bookcase. #wotw

    1. It does take a while to get sorted, so totally understand the moving things around regularly - I'm still at that stage!

  8. I think you always end up with unpacked boxes i know we do ! I am so hoping we sell so we can get packing up. And sometimes we just need a productivity push I know I do to get all those nagging jobs done or I put them off x

  10. It takes time to really settle in a place and have an exact place for everything. I'm forever changing things around even a few years in. #WotW
