November 29th 2019 Today I passed my references and I’ll be moved into my new flat within two weeks. That’s not bad going considering I started looking for places on Monday. It feels good to be somewhat spontaneous after a year of stagnasis (didn’t expect that to be a word but it was) I realised that it’s been over a year since I moved back in with my parents, and it was never supposed to last that long. It was supposed to be a temporary thing, and then I almost moved to London, which delayed me leaving home, and then … Continue reading Stagnasis


November 28th 2019 Today, after viewing 9 places in three days, and 5 today alone, I found the flat I’m going to move into. If all goes well, I could move in 10 days time. I currently don’t have any stuff to move in, so I doubt that moving in will take me very long. We viewed five properties today, the first of the day being the one that we ended up preferring.

He’s just got a job in Cheltenham (where we’re moving) and I mentioned that … Continue reading Property

For a while it looked like it was going to be yesterday, but she was in overnight and so the baby didn’t arrive until this morning. At the moment, they’re undecided on a name, so for now she’s just Baby A. Until this point I’ve not mentioned Genine’s pregnancy on this blog, because it didn’t feel like my story to tell, and I was silently pretty anxious about the whole thing. But the baby is here now, and she’s beautiful, and healthy, and Genine is okay … Continue reading A
