I haven't had much reason to post in here lately but a 2 hour call with my grandma today really helped get my spirits raised. Of all the people in my family, she's probably the person I'm closest to and opportunities to speak with her never fail to put a smile on my face!
I finally found a decent table for my kitchen. So now I don't have my drying rack, toaster and microwave all awkwardly sitting on the floor. Now I can place the microwave on the kitchen and also use a shelf for the toaster. Also found a corner sofa that I'm excited to try out later.
