Bus Blogging

2 months and 8 days.
9 weeks and 6 days.
69 days.

That’s three ways to show how long we’ve been living together and we’ve got some pretty good stats:

Deaths: 0
Blown fuse: 1
Broken dinnerware: 1
Forgotten keys: 1
Pressing a neighbour’s intercom to get in: 1
Breaking into our own place: 1
Rain drenched washing: 1
No light in bedroom: 1.5 weeks
Underwear/socks dropped in common areas: 2
Empty tank: 0

I think we should focus on the zero deaths and zero empty tanks for the car. I mean really, those are the most important things =P.

It’s been fun… and tiring. I’m actually really tired night now. There’s never enough hours in a day. We both get home after 6pm then we have to cook, clean and shower then it’s pretty much bed time. Sometimes we try to wake up early for the washing other times we scramble to get out the door.

But we wouldn’t give it up for the world =). It’s really nice having each other there and sharing a home together ♥!

Some quick updates:
– We finally bought a couch, though we won’t get it till October (whooo electric recliners) so we’re still sitting on the bean bags/carpet/floor/cushions.
– We have an amazing quilt cover with matching pillows!!! (those things are expensive). I’ll post photos later.
– We just installed a hat rack in the laundry for our coats and jackets (thanks Dad!!!)
– We purchased a dining table, but we had to return it cause it was faulty and the quality was so-so, but it looked so nice =(.
– We have 2 carpets, a soft high pile one for the bedroom and a beautiful blue one for the living room =D

The new coat of paint made such a difference. When we’ve gotten everything we want I’ll post pictures.

On a completely unrelated note, I CAN’T WAIT FOR JAPAN!

We’re finally kicking off the planning process. Hopefully we’ll have everything booked by the end of August, and then it’ll just be a waiting game. Our trip will be so jam packed but I can’t wait to have no sleep in another country hehe. I only wish Joseph could’ve come =(, at least it sounds like Daniel might. If they don’t we’ll just have to have extra fun their behalf!

I’m on the train now, only two stops till I’m home.

Should probably pay attention so I don’t miss my stop (I’ve already done that once before haha =.=”””).

Till next time,
Helen ♥
