In Farsi, there is a phrase that means "little by little"- nameh nameh. Though it's hard for me to do things like that (typical Aries), we've been taking the unpacking pretty easy. Though it gives me eye twitches supreme to see packing materials and cardboard everywhere, I'm trying to take it easy and decide what will stay in the flat, and what we'll have to get rid of.
Unfortunately, as we moved from a 130 square meter flat to about 80 (much, much nicer, and much more suited to two people, and much, much, much better for hoovering and cleaning) we've had to downsize a lot. I thought we had done enough in Helsinki by weeding out things I knew wouldn't fit, but we may have to carry on now that we're here. There are a lot less walls, for one, and a lot less storage, so it's an exercise in minimal living. At this point, we don't even have a dining table. We may have to get some stacking stools and eat at the kitchen counter!
But nameh nameh, we'll sort it out. And nameh nameh this place is really starting to feel like our home- totally and completely. We may never move again.*
*Absolute bullshit, as you know.
