Welp, I’m all moved in to the new house, just about!
Of course, with any move, there will be teething problems.
There is a strange damp dog smell in the living room. The outside astro turf is also similarly affected.
My settee is the wrong shaped ‘L’ for my living room.
My cooker, which was supposed to be delivered today, was damaged in transit, and is now out of stock. Thankfully, the nice company have allowed me to upgrade to another model for no extra cost, so I can actually (hopefully) start cooking properly on Saturday.
The previous owners haven’t put a stop on their phoneline/internet until the 11th November, so I am currently enjoying broadband that I’m not paying for.
I turned on a switch in the airing cupboard 3 nights ago, thinking it was the boiler. Turns out I’ve been kept awake at night by the extractor fan in there, as the boiler switch is with the boiler in the attic. Oops.
I have 3 keys that I *still* have yet to find the locks for.
Of course, the above are just annoyances, and can be easily fixed. There is good!
The previous owners obviously threw serious money at the bathroom and kitchen – so the most expensive rooms are fully modernised, and I can have a good go at fully decorating all the other rooms in the house. Yeay!
I have loads of space, at last. And it is such an awesome feeling to know that I can just do what I want in terms of decorating and such. No need to phone a landlord and ask permission. The freedom is amazing!
There is a lovely little pub around the corner, who do pretty decent food.
My commute to work has been vastly shortened – from next week, I am a mere 2.5 miles away from the office.
I’m all moved in, and life is pretty darn awesome!
