So its all about organising, storing..... maximising space.

Never saw one of these before '
Kitchen Island And Bar With Caramel Oak Finish'

Need a few more slots for the wine but other than that, in the right space its cool, no?

The Beginning...

Its my first day in my new home in Athens. The man did a good job with setting up our litle cosy home with all the little basics. So now its supposed to be my turn from a house into our little nest. What credentials do i have to win such a huge task?! No, i'm not asking YOU that... i'm just thinking outloud thanks.


I'm not even a neat person. That along with being pampered and being looked after by others all my life. Yea.... poor me. Lol. Up till 2 days ago, i didn't need to wash my own dishes, underwear, toilet ... etc. I'm not bragging. What i'm saying is that... ohh boy, I have so much catching up to do in this 'adult' phase of life.

So as this whole blog was started in preparation of this phase, lets begin with the SWOT analysis of what I'll be dealing with. In my home-making endeavour.

First and foremost, our home is compact. We have a room, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. Outdoor we have a nice tiled-yard space and its own small toilet. :)

I'm thankful that I have virtually no budget at this moment. Cause my first step should really be about deciding what to do with what we already have. The place is already full, therefore before i can actually purchase anything, I really feel that we need to make more room. Basically either removing stuff, reorganising, repacking/ storing, ... catch my drift?

Sounds fun eh? Well it's good practice for me. Relatively easy day today, just getting used to the place. Thought i'd throw out the towel and sheets and refold them. Might move on to the clothing if i can get off my fat ass and tummy stuffed with yesterdays Beef Pasta. :)
