Christmas in my own flat!

28th November 2013

With support from ubu I have just moved into my own flat. This has been really exciting for me as it is the first time I have had my own place, with my own key, where I have not had to share with others. 

I have chosen all my own furniture and everything that I need to set up my first home. Importantly I have made connections in my local community and have a great many new friends. 

Having previously lived in a residential home environment for 15 years, this will be the first time I have been able to plan how I want MY Christmas to be, instead of going along with other people’s plans. 

I can choose who I see, and who I invite to my new home. I have already been out and bought my first Christmas tree, and decorated it how I want it to look. I am really proud of my achievements to date and I am looking forward to the New Year, as I continue on the journey of the next great chapter in my life.

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! And to anyone who is thinking about taking the next step to getting your own place, GO FOR IT! It is certainly the best decision I have ever made.
