A new month, a new start…we’ve moved house!
For the past few months it has been quite stressful at the place we were staying in. The guy we were sharing with (who is also the landlord) was suffering from some mental health problems. This made things very stressful for us as whenever we left the house we weren’t really sure what we would find when we got back. Would he be in a good state? or no? Would he be shouting? Would the house be re-arranged? Would the electricity be switched off? Would the house be a complete and total mess, or would he be cleaning and it looks decent?
Anyways, all in all it wasn’t a good situation for us. We couldn’t rest when we went home, and spent most of the time tiptoeing around him in case we would set him off. The only positive that, with the exception of once, he was never threatening or intimidating (and the once was more exasperating than anything else). So a few weeks Michael and I took the decision to move out.
We saw a couple of places, liked one, and luckily we were told that we could move in on the 1st of July. However, this being London, you are never completely sure if things will work out, so we were on tenterhooks till yesterday. And yesterday it happened! We got the key, we moved our stuff (with the help of a minicab), and voila! We’re in our new place.
So far it all looks good. We have an amazing view from our balcony/window, which we can see while lying/sitting in bed. The housemates also seem very friendly from the little we have seen. So all in all, so far – very positive!
Can’t wait to have the first people over . Who’s it going to be?
