It has been a hard week. In addition to feeling really far away from family at a time when it would be very nice to be close, it is insanely busy at work. And we are trying to find a new flat and struggling to accept what compromises we will have to make now that the market for rentals has gotten very expensive. We saw a beautiful flat today - that was 75m2. Actually if I convert to feet it doesn't sound so small - that's around 800m2. Which is a bit tight for a family of three. I am starting to accept that we will be living in a smaller space now but we will get things in return: no stairs (Munchkin is getting heavy) and a space she can make noise in.
