I can’t believe it is already the end of January! The holidays were lovely, mostly quiet and relaxing which was just what we needed after the busy time we had with buying our house and moving just before Christmas. It was fantastic to be off work for over two weeks, and much needed for both of us!
We have now been living in our house for over a month, and we still love it. We have started noticing some little things that need fixing or aren’t quite right, but nothing major or urgent. We were really quite lucky that the house was in such a good shape when we bought it. It made it so much easier for us to get everything to look cozy and like our home in time for Christmas.
Just before Christmas, I got an email from a friend in Munich inviting us to her wedding in March. Both N. and I managed to get some time off work and we found affordable flights, so we will be back in Munich for a few days in March. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am. It was so nice to spend some time there in October, to see my family and friends and I am really happy we are going back so soon.
In the past couple of months, we have been doing regular games nights with N.’s mum and some mutual friends, and it has been really fun being a little more social. I have not really found any friends here since moving to Edinburgh nearly two years ago, that is, no one I regularly hang out with. My friend J. who I know from uni still lives here and we hang out sometimes, but other than that, I don’t have any friends my age. It’s so difficult to make friends when you’re no longer in uni. While I am really happy and am perfectly happy just hanging out with N., every now and then, I really miss having a girl friend to meet up with, go shopping with etc.
How / where do you make new friends?
