A new one for me, I have typed this blog post out before bringing it over to Blogger, not sure why but there we go.
I paid over a thousand pounds yesterday and got the keys to my new apartment.
It has a brilliantly done inventory which fully acknowledges all the broken bits, dirty cupboards etc so I am not as worried about my deposit now.
The moving bit, I am finding very hard to wrap my head around. I have lots of stuff, that I will never deny but I am trying to move one room at a time and reuse boxes. I am hoping that will help me avoid the temptation of just chucking stuff still boxed in the attic.
I have decided to use the ‘bedroom’ as my lounge and make it really snug with sofas and bookcases, the TV and Xbox.
The mezzanine is going to be my bedroom area and again will be snugified.
The kitchen is a good size and my Aunt has given me a countertop oven and stove so I can cook a bit now. Due to my hugely diminished budget I am mostly going to be eating rice and frozen veggies.
Also looking at the property, I think my beautiful Phil cat is going to be ok in there with me. I will move him across in a few weeks, once it is relatively sorted and I feel a bit more settled.
Plus, on a studio front, I think I am going to place it in the main living area, because it deserves to be the centre of my life. With two large chill out zones established it can happily sit in the lounge space. Plus that’s where all the light is.
I know I can do this but it all feels so . . . well unfair is the childish answer but also the main one. I am tied up in a swirling vortex of anger, sadness, resentment and hope.
All of this will settle down once I have finished moving in, its just a question of getting there.
My apologies for blogging sporadically, will rectify it as soon as possible.
