If you don't know me well, I'm a bit of a morning person. I like to go to sleep early because I rarely sleep in. Not because I don't want to, but because my silly body won't let me. There have even been nights when I haven't come home until around 3am, but I still wake up at 7am.
Last night, I decided to go bed early because I had been planning on waking up to run this morning. That didn't happen, hence this morning blog post. The reason it didn't happen was because I couldn't get to sleep. And the reason why I couldn't get to sleep is because yesterday, my lovely man and I were offered a place! If it feels sudden, that's because it was.
Last year, I was flatting with my wonderful friend Ellie. A family thing came up at the end of the year and I decided, once the lease was up, I would move home with my family for a little bit. It's been lovely being around my Mum and my Grandma, but I definitely feel like I have lost a little of my independence. Rob and I had been discussing living together for a while and we thought that 2014 should be the year. I had been browsing online and I saw this sweet two bedroom place! On Wednesday we went to the viewing, and Wednesday night we applied for the tenancy. In our minds, it was all very casual, we weren't committing ourselves to anything and we could always say no. The next thing I know, the agent is calling me, offering me the place and Rob and I were saying yes! So really, it all happened within the last couple of days.
This is the reason I couldn't sleep. My brain would not shut off. It was calculating finances, shopping for furniture, thinking up cute DIYS... I'm so excited about this huge change for us, but I'm also very nervous. We don't have a lot of stuff to take with us so I know it's going to be an expensive couple of months, but I am just so happy to be able to make a home for the two of us.
So there we go. There is my exciting news. I knew this year was going to be a big one, let's just hope that it's a good one as well.
