    Lovely place 🙂

    I get that too. The pizza guy wished me good luck on my exams awhile back. Now there are students around here of every age, and I DO live in an apartment a block from a university..but I’m not a student and he was shocked to find out I was 25 lol

    Ooh I covet your kitchen – ours is just a smidge over galley style and it sucks not having enough cooking room. =(

    Do you find that you need to have a big ironing session when you unpack all your summer clothes? Because I’d love to do the whole seasonal wardrobe thing but the thought of all that washing and ironing scares me off!

    • beverly posted on April 15, 2007 at 10:58 am

      My kitchen’s got that servery area which i LOVE, cos I can put stuff there like my vase of flowers, food, etc..

      Hehe I don’t own an iron. I don’t iron ANYTHING i own 😛

      Ya!! Heheh but I wasn’t right in the middle of the crowd, just hovering around the edges looking curious 😉

    Your new apartment seems so much more like home than your last! Maybe it’s just because it’s clean hehe. But the furniture just seems to fit in there better and it looks a lot nicer!

    Oooh…

    Clean, neat, minimal (except for the shoes). Nice!

    Brown Brothers do make some decent drops. I like their Muscato too, something of a summery-sweet thingamabob… it actually reminds me of dessert wine, but a little tamer (in sweetness).

    I like your apartment, it looks so cozy! And that is a gorgeous coat!! Is it soft?

    And people always think I’m a high school student too, I think 17 is the oldest anyone has guessed my age! And when I was 17 most people thought I was 14 😀 Doesn’t bother me though, I just think that when I’m 40, people might mistake me for 20, and that would be swell!! 🙂

    • beverly posted on April 15, 2007 at 10:43 pm

      Yeah the coat’s really really soft and inside it’s all suede-y. It’s not lined so it makes the cut really sleek. I love it!

      You’re right, we’ll probaably like it when we’re older, but right now, it sucks looking young!
