MOVING TO YORKSHIRE
We have been back in the UK for 3 weeks now and in that time we’ve managed to find a flat…and move in! It’s pretty crazy how quick things can happen but its very nice to have our own space again. It was amazing living in our tent and very lovely living with family the past couple of weeks but there’s nothing quite like opening up your own drawers in your own house and finding some clean clothes (oh and not having to walk a mile to go to the loo!) We’ve only been in the flat for 3 days so we’re still getting use to the area and trying to find a place for all our belongings. We’re living in Leeds, in a little village called Menston which is not too far from Ilkley, so we kind of have the best of both worlds - a 15 minute train into the centre of Leeds or a 15 minute walk into the countryside. So far, so good but it is very different from London (obvs), the people, the weather, the atmosphere…London was our home so it’s going to take some time to adjust. I am however loving the cheaper rent (very handy when working as a freelance photographer!) and that there is a fish and chip shop at the end of our road, ha! Oh and the space in our flat, even though its still a one bedroom (rented) apartment…there is so much more space and we have huuuuuge windows which I can’t wait to take full advantage of for some food photography.
We have the necessities in the fridge!
We don't actually have any blinds yet (long boring story) so we fashioned our own!
Next on the list - time to explore the area!
