L-R: Laying my Papa's ashes to rest on my Nana's birthday // Moving into our new place // Painting my nails to get in the Christmas spirit // Hanging out with my baby cousin Nicholas // Opening presents at Mum's house // Boxing day at Dad's house // One of my favourite Christmas presents // The coffee machine I surprised B with for Christmas // Moving in to my brand new private office
I haven't done one of these instagram collection posts in a while, so I figured I'd skip right to the good stuff this time and make a collage of my favourite 'my life lately' moments instead.
As you can see from the photos above, December consisted mostly of moving house and celebrating Christmas. We signed our lease Monday the 16th, moved in officially on the 22nd, headed to my Mum's house on the 23rd after having barely unpacked, visited my Mum's side of the family on the 24th for Christmas eve dinner, headed up to Toowoomba on the 25th for Christmas lunch with B's family, spent most of the 26th with my Dad and his new family, then came back late boxing day night to pass out from a massive food coma.
I'm pretty sure I might still be recovering from Christmas as I just haven't felt quite right since we got back. I've set up my new office (which I'm still not 100% happy with, but I will be sharing an office tour here on the blog once I feel that everything is ready), gotten back into blog designing, cleaned our old apartment, tried out several recipes from my new Jamie Oliver cookbook, set up the awesome new coffee machine that I (with the help of B's brothers) surprised B with for Christmas.. but for some reason I just haven't felt quite at home yet. It's possible that I'm just feeling unsettled because my new baby brother is due in the next 6 days and I'm planning to drop everything to go and up and see him when that day finally comes, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
Other things I'd gotten up to before the moving/Christmas drama were laying my Papa's ashes to rest on my Nana's 80th birthday (it was such a beautiful way to say goodbye), spending time with Bianca before she moved away herself, catching up with Anita and Jaana and meeting their gorgeous puppy Lotte, and spending time with my favourite chubby one year old who I've been babysitting on a regular basis for the past three months now. :)
So what have you been up to lately?
