The best tent ever!

I have just found the most awesome tent ever! Maybe a litttttttle over what i'd be willing to pay for a tent, at £299,  but check this out:

"Officially licensed, this stunning four-man (or lady, natch) tent is a luxe, full-size replica of the iconic 1965 VW Camper Van synonymous with 60s counterculture. It’s so evocative you can almost hear the Mamas and the Papas singing California Dreamin’ every time you feast your eyes on its beautifully breadloaf-ish form."

My Crib

I moved into my new flat just over a month ago now, and although i'm still moving things around and figuring out what should go where, i'm pretty pleased with it! I found the place while casually browsing rightmove.com, and found a flat that said it had a 'balcony bed above the living area' which really intrigued me, so i decided to book a viewing. I wasn't really desperate to move, just ready to fly the nest and looking around at what was out there, so the viewing was more to cure my curiosity more than anything. 

Anyhoo, I saw it and loved it, and now i'm in it! It has a main living room, with a little staircase up to a doublebed-sized area where I sleep! It also has a separate kitchen and bathroom, and a cupboard to keep my ironing board/broom/clothes horse/wellies etc. Here are some photos for you to see:

The other side of the main room, with my sofa and the stairs.

A collection of candles in the fireplace.

Cheerful fake flowers that will never die!

Happy wooden couple and their pet pig...

This is the view from my flat. A cute little cottage and some houses.

And this is where I sleep!


My rug!

Colourful kitchenwear :)

My kitchen! (i've put polaroids over some of the tiles)

 I'm sure lots of things will move around, and new things will appear. I've not yet got round to putting anything on the walls. I'm not allowed to put nails in, so I have to find things that can be put up with blu-tak!

Currently making a beef and bacon stew that smells goooooood!
So long!
