And so, July’s Splatfest has came to an end. Last fireworks are shot. Music quiets down as Callie and Marie can finally stop their singing and take a well deserved rest. Most inklings head towards their homes as they are also tired from all the partying. But some squid kids ignore the sleepiness and continue dancing.
Turns out that my *bright idea* of going all the way to Manchester for a book signing the day after Elliott and I moved in to our new flat in Leeds payed off after all!
I loved the little section in Louise’s book about moving in to your first flat with your partner. I was having a well earned sit down with the book after unpacking a ton of boxes and came across this bit and it felt like she was in the room with me!!! And lots of good advice in there that was heeded - especially about storage! :) :)
The rest of the book is lovely too - me & El are itching to try some of the ‘un baking’ recipes in our new kitchen and I’m definitely going to paint the inside of some jars to keep *important things* (read: junk) in.
Also it was lovely to see Louise again so soon, though I fear that I may forever be known to her as 'the girl who’s boyfriend I told to propose’ 😳
