I'm very happy with the new house. Despite all the boxes I felt at home from day one. I started the unpacking in the kitchen, which is wonderful to work in. I even did a few baking experiments while I was emptying the boxes (think chocolate brownies + pie). I don't know if anyone else relates to this but it seems each time we move we start eating differently (I know we've moved often in the last years but now we're done). Maybe it's because we are grocery shopping in new stores and seeing things we had stopped noticing in stores at your old place. Now it seems we have entered some kind of a hummus phase. It also happened in Antwerp but here I'm eating even more hummus (it reminds me that I haven't shared a hummus recipe on the food blog). These days it's mainly Moroccan-inspired hummus devoured with pita bread and vegetables - yum!
Do any of you have a desk in the bedroom? It's something I have always liked but I'm seriously thinking about it now because of our very spacious bedroom. The movers actually put my desk and rattan storage trunk in here when emptying the vans, and I like them in here. In our old place these items were in my study room and our male Persian cat used to sleep in it, on the windowsill. Now his favourite sleeping spot seems to be this room, the windowsill next to the desk (he's sleeping there right now). It almost feels as if he's chosen this room as my study, that he's telling me to just keep the desk in here. If I go for it I will avoid the office look, I will only place a lamp and a few books on the table and keep the bookshelves downstairs.
Speaking of bookshelves, I'm off to the kitchen to grab some hummus before unpacking the books. There is a bookshelf downstairs that looks lonely without any, and so does the coffee table in the sitting area. Have a wonderful day!
