The best things about moving out

November 28, 2018

It’s nearly been 10 months since I’ve flown the nest of my parents home and brought my own. Damn I’m an adult!!

I have successfully locked myself out four times, blown the electric once, smashed only a few plates, and become known as the stomp-y neighbour. All in a days work!

Moving out was the best decision I have ever made and i am SO proud of myself for doing it all on my own and getting on with it. It’s actually super easy when you own a small flat. Cleaning takes me hardly no time because of the size of it and i love being host. Yes do come round let me make you a cup of tea and cook and feel cosy and give you another home i love that shit.

Being a host is one of the many things I love about living on my own as i get to share my home with others and make them feel like it’s their second home too. I want people to feel like this is just as much mine as it is theirs and there is a place they can come to if they need to escape.

Shopping for home decor is also SUPER fun and being able to design it to how you want it and there are some really super cute things you can get. Eventually I want to rent this out so i might aswell start looking after it while i can!

Looking at it realistically, one of the best things about living on my own is the fact it is mine. I bought this flat no one else, with my hard-earned money. Each time I pay towards my mortgage i am paying towards owning it and i can do what i want, drill and paint as much as i want too. It’s great and i am very happy.

I will do a flat tour decor thing??? soon I just want to get it to the standard i like before anything happens!

Thanks for reading my little chatty blog today and I hope you enjoyed it!

Lots of love,

    This post is literally SUCH a mood, I feel the exact same way! Ive been living by myself close to 1 1/2 years now and wow, I don’t know if I could go back to living with my parents full-time. I love them to death but once you’ve tasted that freedom of living by yourself, there’s no going back. Also, I’m looking forward to your flat decor tour! x

    Fantastic!! Well done you! I do remember when I bought my first home, a ‘boyfriend’ came round and dragged his filthy coat the entire way along one wall which I had spent HOURS painting. I was furious! He didn’t understand at all and was dumped shortly after …. ha! Katie x

    Woow I love this. I’ve been wanting to move out for the longest time but it’s so pricey I simply just couldn’t manage it which is so incredibly annoying. I’m so envious!! xx

    This post brings me back to when I first moved out! I love being able to decorate my place to my heart’s desire and hosting friends over. Living at home sort of felt like it wasn’t really mine… if that makes sense. I had the freedom to decorate my bedroom the way I wanted to, but the kitchen, living room, bathroom, etc. was all my parent’s.

      I completely relate, my parents house was never really mine but this definitely feels like it is!

    Haha, yes, locking yourself out is the worst. My favorites are the times I leave to get the mail or grab something from my car real quick and not realize I’d locked the door behind me. No key. No phone. Just me and my shame waiting around until I figure out a way to resolve the issue :).
