Week 1

Week 1 at the new place has been lovely. New surrounds, new layout,
new things for the cats to look at.

Got a week off work too, to clean up, settle in, get some stuff
happening with the old apartment. Found a property manager, but have
yet to read all the paperwork she sent me. Baby steps... Really slow

Does anyone play Godfinger on iPhone/ipad? I'm looking for more
friends so I can complete one of the game challenges. Add me? I'm

Naptime for cats

Sunday evening, second last night here

We found a new place. Hooray!

It's been a drawn-out house-hunting adventure filled with false hopes, near misses and so many fucking forms. I hate forms. I don't understand why we don't just have a national database with everyone's info, where you can consent to one-off access for specific situations - rental applications, electoral roll, credit card verification. Security would never be an issue if you hire a shitload of ninjas, which also takes care of unemployment.

Fuck it, even that sounds like a lot of effort. I just don't want to fill in another form for awhile plzthx.

Spent the last week in packing mode; the last 2 afternoons actually packing. We don't have nearly as much stuff as I thought we did; as I did when we first moved in. I guess I've thrown a lot of things away since leaving the suburbs - clothes, toys, trinkets, letters, memories, dignity, youth...

It feels like a new life chapter is about to start, and I don't mean this in a romantic starry eyed way. It's more along the lines of "shit's going to be a bit different from now on, so you better adapt." I'm a little scared - I'm going to be paying rent and a mortgage, which means this place will need to be cleaned up quickly so it's fit for a tenant.

And there's lots to do. :[

On a less stressful note, found a cool iPhone app last week. It's called Stachetastic and it's amazing. I won't spoil it for you - go check it out for yourself.

Bye now. :)

How to remove blu-tac without ripping paint off

Use a wodge of blu-tac to remove residue, but instead of pulling or
rolling it off, just twist until it's all gone.

Just a pity I ripped off two chunks of paint before figuring this
out. :(

Moving day tomorrow. We found a new place. :) Wee!
