So I got the keys to my flat in September 2017 (which already feels like forever ago) and today I came across the original estate agent photos of the place, and I was so surprised by how different it looks now! These are the photos that were on RightMove and I remember when I first saw it I thought it looked okay but perhaps little bit small and in need of a make over, but other than that seemed suitable.

But in the end with a lot…

Now I’ve finally settled into my new home I’ve been enjoying buying new bedding in the correct size for my king size bed, as all my old bedding was only double size so was too small. I always think it’s important to buy good quality bedding as you want it to last as well as being comfortable. After all, the bed is possibly the most important place in the home!
