When life changes

Spread the love

As some of you may know, I recently moved to a new flat. I had been living at my parent’s place for nearly a year when I moved back to NZ from the UK. So I decided to do a little post about when life changes…otherwise known as a life update!

Moving out and moving on London life changes

To me, it felt like time to leave. I was excited to move out again and regain my independence. I never really felt pushed or hurried along when it came to moving to a new place. However, it felt like it was time to go.

I arrived at my new place yesterday, and have unpacked all of my things. It’s strange to be flatting again. It’s strange having to share a lot of things like bathrooms and driveways again. I forgot how much you have to compromise when you are flatting.

The landlady also has a MASSIVE list of dos and don’ts. So I really have to try to remember them and to also make sure I do nothing wrong.

However, I am only a 15-minute drive away from work now, which is fabulous! I was getting so sick of having to wake up so early!

When life changes


You may think that I was really happy yesterday, moving out of my childhood home (again). But there was a sense of melancholy about it. I can’t really explain why. It just felt odd! However, it doesn’t feel as strange as when I moved overseas!

But life is full of changes, and this is one really important one.

And here’s one of my favourite songs:

    A few things:
    1) Good luck on your new flat! *Here’s an imaginary champagne for your flat warming 🙂 (or any drink you prefer cause I don’t know if you drink, hehe!)* And hooray for being closer to work!
    2) I understand what you mean about moving out. When I moved abroad, I wasn’t worried about being on my own. It was the main thing I was looking forward to. I was more concerned of leaving my family behind, especially since it’s halfway across the world.

      Thank you 🙂 I love champagne, so thank you very much for that! 😀 It was so nice driving to work yesterday and only being on the road for 15 minutes.
      Yes, that’s exactly how I felt when I went overseas!

    I think It’s normal to feel melancholy when moving out of our childhood home. Best of luck!🍀 And enjoy the new place! ❤️

      Haha, I quickly got over the melancholy feeling. Went back to work and was so busy that I just crashed as soon as I got home! 😀 Thank you, it’s been pretty good so far. Just getting used to it!

    Hey Katie, It’s great having this independence and taking care of oneself. I hope you enjoy every bit of it.

      I am enjoying it so much! It is great being able to have that independence. Although, as I write this reply, I’ve gone home for the weekend 😀
