So, the last week has been a TOTAL whirlwind.
Let’s recap, it’s been a while.
Firstly, Green Ranger got kicked out of his house share, I stayed around too much and apparently he didn’t clean. This is total lies – the people he lives with are just all bitchy girls. It’s a shame but living there made him miserable anyway due to their foul company. So his move out date is May 2nd. This is a bit sooner than we’d have liked because we planned to move in together in June. Yes, 11 months in and we want to move in. It’s mental but we both are.
So, the hunt began to find a flat. If anybody tells you trying to find a place isn’t stressful then they are lying. Exciting though it may start out, it soon ends up in piles of despair. The first place we saw had a completely mouldy bathroom ceiling with fuzz and water dripping from the ceiling, it just got marginally better from there. Oh yeah! Should really say where we were looking – West Sussex.
Then I saw this perfect property, genuinely, just what I wanted. It was a one bedroom, gas central heating, perfectly kept, perfectly decorated, large, had loads of storage and was relatively cheap. I tried everyday to get the viewing and finally, a couple of days ago we got one (the landlord had been messing about). We saw it and that was it, we loved it and it was in all ways perfect.
The quest to find a flat was over – then to find the budgets. We worked the numbers, thanks to my full time hours beginning on May 29th at Caffe Nero I could afford it just. The next day, after a chat with the parents, it is ours! Referencing being done… we are on our way to our new address…
18 Laws Close, Ifield/Crawley and it is my new home as of May 19th, the day after my last university exam. I’m finally leaving home and moving in with Green Ranger.
