Hello everyone!

How are you doing? Well, I must say that the weather over here in crappy UK has been really great the last 2 days! And tomorrow it's set to be really good too! Don't know if this will continue into the weekend and cross over into next week (highly doubtable) so I've been enjoying it while I can :)

On Tuesday I went to sign the contract, and I'm now officially moving in with Adam! It's really exciting that it's finally done! I've been slowly moving my stuff over when I make trips back and forth to my house; it will be weird because I'm still going to call where my parents live "my" house; and then my Dad is going to help me with bigger stuff such as my bed and other bigger items. Luckily, I don't have to bring any storage-type stuff with me as we have built in wardrobes, not huge ones, but it means we don't have to worry about where to put a wardrobe!

Wednesday we went shopping to Ikea with Perry. It was fun, but difficult at first to figure out which one to go to! Back home, we would just go to the Croydon Ikea, as it's a short drive and my parents can obviously drive, but here in North London there are two Ikea's and none of us can drive, and they're both just over an hour away by public transport! We decided to go to the one in Edmonton/Tottenham as it seemed closer, and the one in Wembley proved a little bit confusing to get to from where we are. Also, the Edmonton/Tottenham one is supposedly bigger? But I can't compare as I don't know! Either way, it was fun! And was so addictive, especially the big baskets and sections at the end bit just before you get to the "self-service" where they have random household stuff and you like, just want to buy it, but you shouldn't because it's random and you don't really need it! Ohh, I love Ikea :D

We ended up buying a desk, a coffee table and two small chests of drawers - one each! Also bought some other homey stuff too such as wardrobe organisers and organiser tray things for cupboards that I can put underwear/socks in ;D So basically, we're nearly there in making the room more, roomy and ours!

In the evening, me and Adam went for dinner at The Old White Lion in East Finchley. As you can see from the website, it's gorgeous! It's a kind of, modern pub? Lol, I don't really know how to describe it! All the furniture is odd, plus the tables, so nothing is the same, and it's really cool! The food is really good too, which is obviously another reason for going! We had Calamari with Lime Mayo for starter and handmade Beef Burgers (with like, an INCH or more thick of meat!) with thin flat chips. They do the magical sought after chips I adore....Sweet Potato Chips!!!!! but only on selected dishes :( Ahh, I love those kind of chips, ever since having them in Finland! (As some of you may remember me talking about here)

I did take pics of our dinner, but the flash makes the food look disgusting haha so im not going to post them, sorry!

Speak soon!
