*This is one huge sitting room, ey!
So, we moved house yesterday! I am tired but inspired to write.
Moving house has never been my cup of tea but when my wife insisted, I had to.
*I’d like to give a shout out to Free Movers who came in, packed everything and moved us.
I think I have a difficult time moving. It’s new patterns, paths, shopping areas, markets and many more. When moving, what is key for me is accessibility, comfort and security. If a place doesn’t meet the three, then I won’t bother. When I look at comfort, I look out for the size of the rooms, the light in the space, WATER, the kitchen and bathroom and finally, the bedroom.
I once stayed in a nice place before later realizing the water went and came like a visitor. I’d barely had water in the kitchen – which runs on the main line, for the year or so that I had stayed in that place. I couldn’t use the kitchen at all.
The bathroom is essential. A good bathroom goes a long way! I’ve been house hunting in places where the bathroom didn’t have a window and I honestly advised the broker to let the client know about the dangers. The entire space was humid. I honestly felt sorry for people who’d lived in or were going to.
On my new list of things to look out for in a place I am moving to is closet space. Good closet space is essential. Who builds closets without drawers?
*Have you listened to Good Goodbye by Lianne La Havas?
So, we moved into the new place on Sunday and we are already settled in. It was a crazy day but everything was set! And here I am writing, musing, in my new place.
