Home Sweet Home


Back to reality...Ty looking sharp on his first day of work

We're all moved in to our new flat. It is so nice to have a place to call home. We've been nomads for about 6 months now. We are living in a small flat in Hampstead Heath in London. We love the area. There is an awesome 250 acre park within a 5 minute walk of our place, that is so beautiful. It is nice to be able to walk a few minutes and be surrounded by trees and nature and out of the bustling city. We went to our ward for the first time yesterday. There are only about 70 people in the ward and everyone is very nice.

We're happy to be here but I still can't believe that I'm here for good. It is going to be an adjustment getting used to life here, but I know we'll love it. Here are a few pictures of the flat.
The kitchen- not made for more than one person to be in at a time as you can see
The major downside of our place..the fridge. There must have been some kind of accident and the other half of the fridge got cut off when building this place. And that little sliver of a drawer at the top of the fridge is supposed to be a freezer. This should be interesting.
The bedroom, sorry it's blurry.

I meant to take a picture of the outside, but I guess it didn't work. It just looks like a normal apartment complex anyway.

Ty does look sharp! The flat looks awesome. I can't wait to sleep on that couch and make room in your fridge for all of Owen's formula.
