Little things from the week that kept me smiling
The apartment here is quite nice if a little bare. As aforementioned, it’s difficult to justify spending much cash on this place given our situation. However, we have found some budget friendly options. We of course covered our fugly couch. Then we became the owners of a second couch thanks to one of PC’s teammates. Most recently, with the mini, we could finally travel to Ikea. Of course, most of the cheap stuff there follows the “you get what you pay for” adage, but we don’t need high quality, long lasting items- it’s perfect. An ottoman here, an area rug there and it’s starting to look like people actually live here. It’s not much, but the poor space needed a mini face-lift.
