I spent my first night here in my new flat last night, on a deflated air mattress (it had a puncture) so I effectively slept on the floor. I’ve been extremely busy over the last 2 days, not only with the actual ‘moving in’ part, but also the unpacking (which I’m nowhere near done with) and having to buy pretty much everything from scratch. It’s slowly beginning to look like a home, but I have a long way to go before it reaches that stage. Furniture wise, I do have a bed, a large chest of drawers, a bookcase and an Ikea lounge chair. I have plenty of closet space, but nowhere near enough hangers.
I know that I’m going to get lonely at some point, but I’m trying my hardest to keep busy and wearing myself out with cycling and walking. It is a relief not to have to share my living space with strangers (or people in general) anymore and that I can freely get up whenever I want and come and go as I please without having to deal with anyone. With that being said, I wish I had a friend I could invite over, or better still, a partner that I could have over to stay for a couple of days a week and cook for.
I’m really pissed off at the moment as the O2 network has been down since early this morning, so I’m unable to get online much without using my GLocalMe mobile hotspot device, which is expensive as it eats data like crazy. O2 has no idea when the network will be back up, so I can’t use my phone’s data or the internet much.
I’ll take pictures of the place when my couch and computer desk and chair are delivered on Saturday, as it’s still a bit ’empty’, but this is the view from one of my bedroom windows:
I’ll try to update again tomorrow, after my mental health assessment.
