A Fresh Start in the North

If you don't follow me on other social media outlets, you may not know that I have recently moved house. And not just any house, a house I have bought with my boyfriend, in the middle of the Peak District. It was a big move for us, not least because we've never owned a house before. We are more accustomed to dwelling in cramped flats we don't own, on noisy London streets, hiding our pets from the landlords and giving most of our earnings as rent.

We decided to make a big change in our lives, and move our southern arses to the north of the country. The affordable house prices were a huge factor in this decision, quality of life was another one. Our new town is high in the peaks and is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills I hope I never get used to seeing, whilst also being an hour away from central Manchester, where my boyfriend works. It really is the best of both worlds. I have the Derbyshire moors on my doorstep, and cities like Manchester and Sheffield to explore on days when I need a bit more "life".

I posted a video about my new studio, the attic room. I hope you enjoy having a look around!
