Day One - Domesticized

I had all these plans of all the amazing things I'd be doing on my first day of freedom, but as the new flat is a mess, most of our things are still in boxes and the place hasn't been cleaned since god knows when, I had to bring the domestic goddess out instead of the creative nut (not that you cannot organise bills creatively but... :)


While I thought I'd sleep in enjoying that I don't have an alarm set I woke up even earlier than usual excited for my first day of unemployment! After preparing my first cup of latte I settled in my new comfy office (OK, AC's new comfy office :) and browsed through my favorite blogs' updates. Check that beauty behind me! I'm a total Mac virgin, having used only PCs in my life, but this pretty, shiny, huge new screen will definitely come in handy with blogging and photo editing!

I prepared a healthy lunch and then started to clean up the hugeeeeeee mess. There is still a loooot to do but I definitely made some progress! :)



Organised some of my accessories, fixed some lamps, drilled some holes and bought some herbs for the kitchen!

After cleaning up the office, I decided to be extra nice and I even made dinner  (that's 2 warm meals prepared in one day!!!) with heart shaped pasta (originally planned for Valentine's) for my man. I used a pre-prepared pesto-basil sauce and parmesan with fresh basil from our window! :D

Overall I feel like I worked much more than on a usual work day which was definitely not planned, however I really cannot wait now to finish everything and start enjoying having a nest of our own! :)

Happy Weekend darlings! I'll be organising some more, snapping some pics and hosting a housewarming brunch for my girlfriends! :) Who knew being unemployed is so much work fun? :D ENJOY!

I think it's absolutely awesome that you've quit the job and are going for a creative lifestyle. I'm planning to do the same in the summer, after a move to a different city. Thanks for inspiring me. I loved your post.

Happy day! Muah!
