Long Time No See

I have been very busy the last couple of months and could not write on my blog. My main priority is my degree at the moment. I have started a Maths and French course in October and it is all going very well so far. The Maths course is compulsory for my entry to the external program at the LSE and I have an unconditional offer for 2013.

I went many times to IKEA in the last months and I know most prices now in my head. I don’t know if that is worrying. My latest project was an untreated chest of draws from IKEA and I painted it in Farrow&Ball’s Clunch. It is the same colour as my bedroom walls and it looks quite nice.

I have been diagnosed with PCOS and I am taking now medication for it. It luckily explains a lot of the changes in my body I had over the last few years and as much as I am relieved about the diagnosis I am also annoyed and angry that the doctors I’ve seen over the years couldn’t help me earlier. The first three weeks on the medication were awful, I’ve had panic attacks, I couldn’t go to sleep in the evenings and I couldn’t get up in the mornings, I was constantly hungry and I cried a lot. I am now feeling a bit better, the weight is coming off and I am very happy about it. My skin is also a bit better.

I am constantly tweeting again and I enjoy taking pictures for Instagram.

My new bed IKEA Leirvik

On Sunday we went to Ikea to buy my new bed. Please note that the picture shown above is not the picture of my room, but I bought the same bed. It is the Ikea bed Leirvik and it costs £99 without the mattress. I don’t move until the 28th of April, but as soon as the bed stands I will take a few pictures of it and show them to you.
