Bruise, bruising, bruised

I've got a bruise. Well, actually I might have a few of those as I tend to get them rather easily. But I don't think I've ever had one on my shoulder before. I know exactly why I got it, nothing fishy about it really. I just kind of fell out of bed and landed on my head and shoulder (don't ask)! The bruise bothered me first, but now the muscles in my neck and back is starting to ache accordingly as well. I guess I had it coming! 
 
It doesn't look much, my bruise, but it hurts a lot. Enough for me to feel sorry for myself!

I hadn't realised before how often people (friends/family that is) put their hands on your shoulder. Now I do. 
Please. Stop. Touching. My. Shoulder. 
At least for now! I'd rather have a back massage!!! 😜

Wet, wet, water

We have water! In the kitchen. What a relief! Yet again I feel forced to say that it's the simple things that makes you happy. Like running water in your kitchen. And of course, all is relative, that might not be a simple thing everywhere in the world, and some would be happy just by the possibility to gain access to clear, fresh drinking water. I'm aware of this. But, nevertheless, today running water in my kitchen makes me happy! ❤️
 
I've been cheating some today. That is working although I shouldn't as I'm home with mini me on VAB - VĂ„rd Av Barn (roughly translated into: care of child). That means I get to stay home from work, tending to my daughter and still getting payed like 80% of my salary. Great isn't it! While I did that, work that is, Charlie the cat kept me company on the couch opposite mine. Mini-me sat on the floor, playing with her iPad. I love how cats seems to enjoy sleeping more than most. It always looks comfortable and relaxed! 

I'll be staying home with mini-me tomorrow as well, but on Friday I'll be back at work! She's been doing better today and I try to introduce more foods with different textures to learn what she's able to chew without pain, but also to challenge her to use her mouth/teeth again. She would rather eat pancakes for a month if I didn't, referring to the dentist telling us to only eat "soft" foods. To her that means that she can say no to potatoes, rice, pasta, sausages, meat and...well, about everything other than pancakes and ice cream (Thank you, dentist Tom). So today we tried pasta with a cream sauce. After some hard resistance she buckled and ate her portion! Victory! 1-0 to mummy! 
 
I've got to put her to bed now!

The simple things

I'm smiling, thinking that the littlest things often are the ones making you happy. Like for me just about now. Happy to be able to lay down on the sofa, dating my Kindle. 
 
Feeling relieved that mini-me seems to be doing better, now sound asleep in her bed. And feeling totally relaxed in our new home. Small things in comparison, but still. Happy! In my own little bubble. Thinking of the issues and problems of the world would burst the bubble, in seconds. But for now, I'm staying happy, dating my Kindle on the sofa! ❤️

It's getting there

Today the countertop was delivered and put in place! Finally, another step closer to have a fully working kitchen! Apparently it needed to rest 24 hours, but tomorrow we can have the tap, dishwasher and stovetop installed, and after that we have a fully working kitchen! I can hardly wait! Im getting tired of eating out already!
 
Lovely, isn't it! I love it! ❤️
 
And with the brass tap it's going to look even better! And then we have to wait for the tilers that will put up the tiles on the wall (white ones), but we'll be able to use the kitchen either way. 
 
 This was what I had to work with this morning, a lot of boxes to unpack in the kitchen. 
And I made it happen! And yeeees, still no new table in place! I just can't seem to find what I want! Heeeelp!
 
But...the wardrobes in our bedroom is still not ready. We have to anchor them to the wall, which is yet to be done as an electrical outlet is in the way and needs to be dismantled before we can continue. Hopefully that will be done tomorrow! Because...
 
 Our guestroom /office is drowning in bags with all our clothes! And this is making me irritated. I hate disorder and messes like this! I need it gone! đŸ˜±
Now I'm off to read to mini-me. She has no fever today, yeay, but her mouth still bothers her a lot! I've made her some pancakes that she's eaten and that feels like a giant step forward! I'll stay home with her tomorrow as well and then we'll see!

A little bit of this and that

Mini-me has been home with her dad today, tending to her cuts in her mouth and the fever. She still has a lot of pain, so the eating isn't going to well. But atleast her fever seems to get better. Hopefully tomorrow her temperature will be normal again, fingers crossed! ❤️

When I got home from work today, my hubby had made such a difference to the apartment appearance. Maybe as much as half of all the moving boxes were unpacked and most of the furniture had been moved into place. I can't tell you how nice that felt! So I've spent the evening unpacking a few boxes myself and putting a final touch on the details. So, it's really beginning to feel like a home! ❤️ And the best part is that our countertop will be installed tomorrow! And that means we will have a working kitchen again! And our beautiful water tap will be mounted! Yeay!!!
 
I love it! I love brass, as you probably can tell! 😜 And it will look great in the kitchen! 

I'll show you some pictures tomorrow! Now I'm off to bed!

Sunday no Funday

Tired doesn't begin to describe how I feel right about now. Mini-me fell badly yesterday, which I didn't tell you in my blog entry. She hit her mouth on the wooden stairs just outside the entrance of our house. Three of her teeth was pushed back a bit in her mouth and she got a huge cut in her gum, just above the teeth in her upper jaw. And she got a cut in her lower jaw as well, a bit smaller though. And she got a cut on her chin too, just below her mouth. As you can understand she's in a lot of pain and the area around the cuts and her lips are swollen. And, as if that isn't enough, she has a high fever since yesterday evening. She slept between us all night, but I'm not sure you would call it sleep as she woke up at least two times per hour crying. ❤️ 
My husband talked with a nurse yesterday whom told us to call the dentist this morning, which I did. At first they didn't want us to drop bye, and tried to convince me that it wasn't necessary. But I didn't feel calm enough with the dentist explanation and advice, as he hadn't seen her injuries, so I called him back an hour later and got an appointment just twenty minutes later. I meet the same dentist I had talked to, and he was really great! Especially with mini-me, whom even let him check her injuries without crying. Her teeth weren't damaged, they will find their way back to there usual place in time. And the cuts didn't need stitches although they looked bad. He told me to wait a few days for the swelling to go down, and then come back for a follow up. He prescribed something that I'm to clean the cuts in her mouth with and told me to keep her off "hard" foods the next four weeks. I don't think that will be a problem because she doesn't want to eat anything today. Her mouth hurts to bad so all I've made her "eat" is some yoghurt and rosehip soup. And drinking water of course! And the dentist suggested that we'll give her a lot of ice cream as the cold will make the swelling go down. Any other day that would have made her happy, but today she doesn't even want ice cream! My poor little girl! ❤️

So, I've been lying next to her almost all day. She fell asleep two hours around midday and that gave me the opportunity to unpack some of our boxes, but not nearly as many as I had planned for today! And my fantastic husband had to spend the day alone in the house fixing all the things left from yesterday as they'll start cleaning it tomorrow! My sister, the best in the world, helped him as much as she could though! ❤️

And mini-me got the best present ever from her best friend Moltas and his sisters! They had bought her a huge Lego Friends package, with a stable and horses! She was super excited and so happy to receive that, especially today! It took mini-me and me, almost two hours to build it all! What great friends we have! We love you all to the moon and back, Jezz! You're the best! ❤️❤️❤️

My husband will stay home with mini-me tomorrow and I'll probably be home Tuesday at least, and most likely Wednesday due to her cuts in her mouth (hopefully the fever will be gone by then). 
Now I'm off to the shower, I feel dusty and a bit older from all the drama we've had this weekend!

First night

So today weve been moving all day! We thought we had moved a lot all ready, but apparently we had a loooot of stuff left in the house! My sister and her entire family helped us all day and we are so thankful for their help! We wouldn't have made it without them! ❤️

So now we're here. Our first night in our new home! And my gosh what a mess it is right now! It's like we've thrown in an entire home in a small box and then shaken it hard! 😂 It's going to take us some time to make order out of this mess! 
 
We had a visitor just before leaving the house. A beautiful Peacock butterfly. It sat in my hand and didn't even try to fly away. Maybe it was a way to say goodbye, or just a thank you for taking away the butterfly hunting and eating cat! Morris the cat will surely miss her hunts in the garden but the butterflies can yet again fly over there without being killed by the black cat! 😜

Now I'm off to bed! Mini-me got a fever tonight and are sleeping next to me and my husband. I hope she'll feel better in the morning, she was so tired tonight. Feeling poorly again. It's only three days since she last had a fever. But we heard quite a few children at kindergarten were home sick, so she might have caught a new bug.

Nightmares from hell

I woke up terrified at 03,28 this morning. I had the worst nightmare I have ever had in my life and my heart was beating in panic! I was so afraid I couldn't breathe! I dreamt that mini-me was hit by a car right next to me and I could see her under the car, rolling. And when I got to her I held her in my arms screaming while she said my name in pain and terror. That's when I woke up! I feel the panic getting its grip on me even when telling you about this dream now, and I can honestly hardly breathe. I couldn't calm down this morning even after realising it was just a bad dream. Every time I closed my eyes I saw the image of her getting hit by that car. I woke my husband crying and he comforted me, but it still didn't help. So I lay awake until the alarm went of at six and then I ran into mini-mes room and lay beside her in bed and told her how much I loved her and how dangerous cars are. And how important it is that we always watch the road for cars before passing over the street. Of course I didn't mention the dream, I just needed to feel safe that she understands the dangers in being a small child and surrounded by a lot more cars now that we're moving! Maybe that has been bugging me all this time without me really realising it, hence the nightmare. I don't know, but it hit me hard! 

But, this have not been dampening our day! I picked up mini-me early (two in the afternoon) to go to her lesson in horseback riding, and she had so much fun (as did I). They got to trot for the first time and she was super excited about that! And did very well I might add! After that we went back to the apartment to fix some interior thingys. And after that we went back to the house continuing the packing! Tomorrow is the big move!!! Finally! But now I need to sleep! I'm exhausted! And tonight I wish for happy dreams! Please! ❤️
 
Tomorrow we start our new life, in the city! We are all exited and very happy about that! And obviously, as last nights bad dream told me, a bit anxious as well! Living here in our little village has made us feel a lot more safe than the city will, and that is absolutely a game changer now! We just have to live accordingly! But everything is relative, Uppsala is more like a really small village compared to big citys like New York, and last time I heard there are children living there as well! 😜

Ending a long day early

I've been stuck in meetings all day at work today! I barely had time to squeeze in lunch! And after picking up mini-me and meeting up with hubby, we went shopping for some paint to our room and mini-mes. She wanted her walls to be painted in pink, gold and blue. I wanted her walls painted in white. So we compromised! She got one wall to paint in pink, and I chose the colour! So she got a soft pink, which I think will satisfy us both - meaning hubby/daddy doesn't have to repaint the wall in a few months! 😜
 
In Swedish it's called "puderrosa" and translated that means powder pink. 

In our bedroom I chose a much bolder colour, but I'm hoping it's going to look great!
 
Number two from the top down, called "1973 antikgrĂ„", translated to antique gray. I wanted an even darker shade, like the third, or fourth down, but I lost my courage and went with the slightly lighter one. I'm really more of a white-wall-kind-of-girl so this is a huge step for me! Scary! But I really think it's going to look great! Fingers crossed... 😁

Today I sold off two armchairs that I couldn't find any room for in the apartment, so now we've gotten rid of (sold) all the furniture that we won't bring with us in the move! Feels great, and all the buyers have been super nice and congenial! I hope they'll be happy with their new furniture! And I'm happy that we got a contribution to our new kitchen table that we still haven't bought! Need to make that happen! 
 
Now I'm turning off my phone for the night! A quick shower and brushing my teeth, then I'm jumping in to bed! Thank you for stopping by!

Summers back

What a great day we've had here in Uppsala today! I couldn't help but to feel that summer has returned! Of course I had no time to enjoy it other than through the windows as I worked all day. But it helps just knowing it's warm and sunny outside, don't you think?!
 
I've been working from home today and as mini-me had no fever and was feeling better, I could work almost without any disturbance at all. She was happy playing with her Lego Friends and iPad, only asking me questions and wanting my attention when I were out of meetings! đŸ‘đŸ»
 
I've spent most of the evening packing in the kitchen together with mini-me. Now I'm out of moving boxes so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to continue on with the packing. It's not that much left to pack, so I can see light in the tunnel of boxes! 😜

Sell, sold, sold

So hubby sold our kitchen table today, so now we have neither chairs nor table in the house! Guess we'll be eating from the floor until Saturday then! 😂
 
No, I'm just kidding! We still have the couches and table left in the living room so we'll eat in there. Feels good though, to get rid off the old furniture so easily! And that means less for us to carry on Saturday as well! 

Mini-me was stung by a wasp just as I got home from work today, poor thing! Still feverish and excited to see me she accidentally stepped on a tired wasp on the floor. She cried for about an hour and I tried everything thinkable to ease her pain. I know how much it hurts (I've had my fair share of close encounters with wasps through the years) so I suffered with her as her little toe got more and more swollen. But now she resting in bed, and the toe has almost resumed its usual size. I hope both her cold and toe are better tomorrow! I'll be keeping her company here at home, although working as much as possible at the same time. I have a meeting between 10-16 so I hope she's feeling better and can play next to me while attend it. We'll see! 

Now I'm off packing some boxes before turning in for the night!

Hot baby girl

And I mean hot! Mini-me still has a high fever and a bad cough, so my husband will be home with her tomorrow as well. Poor thing! ❤️
 She's laying on the couch looking at "Macha and the bear" on the TV right now. I've just given her some medicine to take the fever down and will read to her before putting her to bed. 

Today my husband sold our old kitchen chairs and a large commode, and apparently someone wants to buy our old bookshelves too. Good thing that the furnitures get reused instead of just thrown away, don't you think! We sold off the old kitchen in the apartment too instead of throwing it out. And another great advantage by selling all this is that we don't have to drive it all to the recycling station! Here in Sweden you don't have to pay for throwing your old stuff/garbage out. You just take it to the recycling station and sort it into the right containers - like for example: plastic, corrugated cardboard, garden waste, steal/metal, paper, electrical appliances, hazardous waste and so on. A great service that makes it easier for everyone to make an effort for our environment! 
 
Now I have to put mini-me to bed. I bought her a new book today that I'm going to read to her in bed. It's about a horse so I'm sure she's going to like it! 🐮🩄❤️

Two days of fun

Well, I don't know if "fun" is the right word to use, but we've spent the last two days packing and moving things into our apartment. And buying new things (like a desk to mini-me, doors and chairs) and getting rid of the old (mostly the doors but also a lot of packing materials)! So I've had little time to write here on the blog, but I'll make sure to give you a before and after picture later on so you can see the change! It's going to be beautiful! 
These are the doors that came with the apartment, really boring and plain.
 
 So we bought these instead. And yes, we will paint the mouldings framing the door as they look yellow next to the new door.
 
And we bought new chairs. Finally! I've been going on about chairs like forever, but every time I were about to place an order I hesitated! And maybe this is why! This chair! Which I found on IKEA! Love them! We now have four of these, and...
 
...two of these! Also IKEA. They'll go well togheter! The only problem being I've still not found a table I like!!! So we have the chairs, but no table to put our plates and glasses on! 😜

Still a lot to be done, furniture to move and walls to be painted, and we got a week to do it on! Tomorrow I'm back at work, but my hubby is going to stay home with mini-me who has caught a cold and went to bed with fever, a snotty nose and a cough. Poor thing! ❤️

Boxes everywhere

There are boxes everywhere! In the house, and in the apartment! And we're going to have to live with that for another week as we've decided to move next weekend. Why? Beacause we didn't get our appliances delivered for the kitchen today as we thought we would. So no fridge/freezer, no oven, no microwave and no stove. And that would be a problem as we need to store food, cook it and eat it, at least twice a day. So, we're going to continue on moving over as much as possible this weekend between the two of us, and get the wardrobes built in our and mini-mes room. Hopefully will just have to move the big furniture (beds, sofas, dining table and chairs) next weekend!

Now I'm off to bed. It's been a long day!

One step forward

Today have been a better day! Mini-me have found new friends at kindergarten and we're really hoppingivande for it to be a lastning friendship! ❤️ Tomorrow she'll be without us at kindergarten the whole day, and thanks to her newly found friendships she seems to be fine with it! So fingers crossed!!!
 
Although I've been able to do some work from the bench I've been sitting on the last two days, in the corridor outside mini-mes kindergarten class, it's going to be nice to work in my office again next week! My neck and back is telling me that the bench was a bad choice of workplace for me! 

Tomorrow I'm off from work so that we can start moving out of the house! So I've been packing like crazy the last two hours! I didn't have much more time as I had to work the hours I missed when staying with mini-me at kindergarten. So tomorrow will be all about packing! And lifting. And moving! I'm sure my neck and back won't be happy about that either! 😜

Issues of the heart

Sometimes it's really hard to be a parent. Heartbreakingly hard. And we've had to experience one of those times now when mini-me is changing kindergartens. It might sound small and insignificant to some, but to me and my husband these are trying times! You see, this process of changing kindergarten isn't as smooth and simple as we might have wished for. 

Mini-me has always loved kindergarten, ever since she started attending it at the age of 19 months. And she's attended the same one until today, aged 4,5 years. She had a lot of friends at her old one (besides her BFF whom she got to know there as well), and to get you to understand the love - the children could come running, calling out her name and giving her a group hug! And she would do the same to greet one of her friends! ❤️
She always said we picked her up to early in the day, that she wasn't done playing with her friends, and she loved her teachers!!!

She's now attended two whole days at her new kindergarten, both days accompanied by her father until lunch when I would take over. And it's hard to see her withdrawn and shy, trying her best to engage other children in play - and being refused. Yesterday she met a girl whom she seemed to hit it off with, but today the interest in mini-me had cooled off. She clung to my husband, and even started to cry when he tried to go to the bathroom. When I came she seemed a bit more calm and engaged in playing with one of the teachers, so I sat down outside in the corridor to give her space. But my heart broke when she again and again walked out to me and being sad, saying that none of the other children wanted to play with her. And in the car, on the way home, she cried and said she had no more friends. Begging me to take her back to her old kindergarten because she misses her friends so much! 💔

I've spent a lot of time this evening trying to boost her self confidence and urging her to go talk to the both the other children and the teachers whenever she feels left out or alone! And of course both my husband and I have talked, and will continue on talking, to the teachers so that they can help mini-me to make new friends! 

It's so hard to see your child so lost and alone. And knowing you are the reason for it! She was so happy before, and now, with the move and all the changes that brings, well...I can't help but to feel like a bad mum making her go through all this! I know that it'll change! We won't accept anything else! She will have new friends and she will be happy attending kindergarten, somehow/eventually! We'll see to it!!! But after today, I kind of feel a little lost my self. Lost in the matters of the heart! I wish with all my heart that tomorrow will bring change, in a good way! Her starting to get new friends and being happy at kindergarten again! ❤️

Packing

So the packing of all our stuff has begun! Mini-me and I just spent two hours going through everything in her room. Every single toy, game or crayon that she owns. Me trying to give away some of her things that she has outgrown, and she refusing my every try. So we ended up packing just about everything (I managed to hide away some of the things she definitely won't miss). Her clothes and stuffed animals remains to be packed, but I'll do that just before leaving.
 
It doesn't look like much like this, six moving boxes, but it's a start at least! 😁

Now I'm getting mini-me ready for bed. She spent her first day at her new kindergarten today (her father and I split the day between us and were with her the entire time). It went very well, but understandably she really tired. It was a lot to handle for her, getting to know new teachers, children, routines and building/outside yard. But she did good and we're really proud of her! ❤️
 
She found new friends! ❤️ 
 
And I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight! I had a long day as I had to work when coming home from kindergarten with mini-me, and then finishing off with all that packing! And, that's how this entire week will look like for me! Leaving work at lunch to go be with mini-me at kindergarten. Coming home and fixing her dinner, working three hours while she play and then doing a few hours of packing after putting her in bed and then crushing in my bed just before midnight! Sounds funny, right! 😜

A little help

I asked mini-me to help me pack as we start moving this weekend. This is her helping me!
 
Great help! Little sweetheart! ❤️

We will start moving into the apartment on Friday, but I don't think we'll be finished with the move on Sunday. Not that the time is to short (three days) or that we have to much stuff to move, but we still need to buy the wardrobes to our room and to mini-me and we're waiting for some new furniture to arrive as well (and old ones to get rid of). AND, most importantly, the kitchen will not be finished until the countertop is delivered and it won't be for another two weeks. So we'll start moving stuff there, but I'm not sure we'll actually move in yet. We'll see!

Tummy ache

I slept really bad last night. I woke up with tummy aches and couldn't go back to sleep until the pain was gone. I lay awake over three hours, feeling sorry for my self. And today I've had tummy aches off and on all through the day. 🙁
 
And I think I know the root of the problem as I found out that a vitamin tablet I eat everyday (since two weeks) contains gluten! So I'm not taking them anymore (since yesterday) and hope that my tummy will go back to its pain free everyday life! Well, it's not always pain free (rather the opposite), but atleast I hope to be spared from this kind of pains. Since I started to eat according to the FODMAP diet in October 2015, my pains have lessen considerably! 

So now I'm resting in bed while mini-me plays with her grandmother and hubby is in the city, painting in the apartment with granddad. We've been to IKEA and checked out their wardrobes as we need to buy some to the apartment. And my mother in law looked at furniture to buy to their new apartment in Spain. A great day that only was dampened with my tummy aches. And speaking of, I need to rest! That means no more writing to you right now.

The botanical gardens

Mini-me, my mother in law and me has spent the day in the botanical gardens here in Uppsala. It's a beautiful place and the flowers are amazing! 
 
Even mini-me likes it here!
 
And the atmosphere is lovely. I really liked this waterfall, or maybe just a stream because the fall wasn't that high.
 
But it's the flowers that speaks to me!
 
I could watch them for hours!
You might see a theme hear, all flowers purple or pink. But it's actually a coincidence! I didn't take pictures at first, passing some lovely blue flowers, but there were a lot of pretty flowers in other colours!
 
 These were my grandmothers favourite, or at least a flower that she always kept in here garden, sweet pea. Gorgeous!
 
And they come in so many different colours and structures. Love them!
 
And look at these funny looking cabbages (black I think)! Aren't they great?
And I kind of liked these as well. I'm not sure of their name, but I think it was "Spanish flag" or something close to that. It's unbelievable the way nature work, that it can create flowers with colours fading shades like this. 

Now we're back home. Mini-me and her grandmother is playing in the garden and I'm relaxing out in the backyard. My husband will be home soon and he's taking me to the movies! ❤️

An eventful day

Today we said our goodbyes to mini-mes kindergarten teachers and friends. She wasn't sad at all, just happy and eager to leave. Me on the other hand, couldn't keep the tears from falling. They've made me feel safe, that I can trust them to care for mini-me, and I'm really going to miss that! But! Hopefully I'll get to feel the same trust with mini-mes new teachers! 

After leaving kindergarten, we left for riding school and mini-mes first lesson! She was so expectant and happy all the way there and the feelings carried on during the entire stay! She got to ride a Shetland pony, tiny and super cute, named Nisse! 
 
Her cousins joined us and they helped their little cousin to care for Nisse, and prepare him for the lesson.
Mini-me even looked tall riding Nisse! 😍 
Now we're looking forward to the next lesson. Apparently she'll be riding Nisse then as well, and the lesson after that is with a new pony. Good tactic, I'll say! Then you get to know your horse a bit before changing! 

 Now I've got to sleep! I'm so tired!

It's happening

The kitchen is really coming together fast! Our handymen are the best! 
 
The tiles will be white, about 10x20 cm in size, but we won't put them up until after the countertop has been delivered and put in place.
 
So all this wall space from the cabinets will bedressed with tiles. And yes, the cabinets are still in plastics to keep them safe from scratches while the handymen still got work to do. 
 
And here are the cabinet for the microwave and the oven (left) and space for the fridge and freezer.
 
The open space to the left is for the dishwasher. So, there you have it. Another sneak peek of our new kitchen. This weekend my husband is spending painting the walls togheter with my father in law. Mini-me, my mother in law and I will be spending it visiting museums, playgrounds and the botanical gardens here in Uppsala! Looking forward to that!

Tomorrow is mini-mes last day at her kindergarten here in our village. On Tuesday she'll be attending a new kindergarten in Uppsala. It's with really mixed emotions we'll be saying our goodbyes tomorrow. The teachers has been phenomenal and mini-me's loved every minute she's spent there. And we, as parents, have felt really safe with leaving her there, and she's learnt so much! We love them all! But, we're moving and that requires mini-me to change kindergarten. I just hope that she'll be as fond of her new place as she's been so far with her old one!
We've bought two large cakes to the teachers and all the children for tomorrow and I'm going to write them a loving thank you-note. And I'll be trying my best not to cry! 

But now I'm going to relax, reading (no surprises here) a book!

Laters babes!

Sneak peek

I'm at the apartment! Looking at our new floors and they are beautiful! I'm so happy! It's going to look even better than I had imagined! ❤️ And ofcourse I had to share that with you!
 
You'll have to ignore the terrible green wall. It's going to be white when we move in! 😜
 
And the kitchen is in the making! I can't wait to show you the finished result!
