Heya! How goes things? Me? Sheesh… I’m worn out today. Been doing a lot of travelling, and I was intending to do a fair amount of housework around the place as well, but I haven’t really, outside of the laundry. Just been too tired after work, really. So… much… testing… *sighs* *yawns* Well, that, and the fact that there’s been a few mishaps in my life lately. Like losing my car keys temporarily because of a sneezecough at the wrong time. *shudders* (I’d mentioned it on twitter, but basically, I was in the car, key in hand, and was gonna put the key in the ignition when all of a sudden I had a sneeze and a cough at the same time and the key went flying out of my hand. And I couldn’t find it. *cries* I had to dig out my spare and hope I’d find the key when I’d got to work… Anyway. Long story short, I found it when I put my hand down the side of the passenger’s seat for the third or fourth time, and felt my fingertips brush the key. I admit, I was so relieved I’d found it. Wasn’t sure if I’d be able to lock the car or not with my spare key… *shakes head*)
The travelling… Well, I went to look at a possible house to buy. It’s a nice “coach house” – which basically means it’s kind of like half-way between a flat and a house, in that all the rooms are on one floor, with the difference that there’s no neighbours above or below – in fact, all that’s below the coach house are garages. Anyway… I took a look and thought it was really nice, and there wouldn’t be any work required on the place either, which suits me just fine. So… I’ve put in an offer, and I just need to wait and see what happens now. All’s going well… I should hear something back fairly soon. I know I’m not the only one interested in the property, so… Yeah, like I say, gotta wait and see.
For now, though… Well, I’ve got to get some stuff together and take it round the estate agents’. Which is gonna be fun…! *sighs* But won’t be able to do that until Tuesday. Hopefully the delay won’t be too much of a problem or anything. Shouldn’t be, but we’ll see.
In the meantime… Well, like I say, I’m tired, and I got a lot of housework to do… So I’m likely to grab an early night’s sleep and get on with things tomorrow.
Going back to the possible house… I dun really have any long-term plans – surprisingly enough, considering I’m likely to be tied to a 20, 25 years mortgage *rolls eyes* (Honestly, I can understand why houses and the like are worth a lot, but… If you’re not lucky enough to win the lottery or be rich in the first place, having a mortgage for that long of your working life is… Well, come on, isn’t it just ridiculous?) – but if you were to ask me if I can see myself in that place for the next 5 years, I’d say yes, but I dunno if I can see myself living there for rest of my life. That’d probably be a no, in that case.
But it’s a nice light bright place, and that’s important for me, I need that sunlight in my life. And if I do meet a lovely lady, I wouldn’t have any problems bringing her there. Here, in this flat… *looks around* Honestly, just… no. It’s too dark and bland, quite honestly.
Anyway, not counting chickens. For all I know, someone else will make a bigger offer and that’ll be the end of it, until I can find something else.
I means, I’ve seen houses before that I was interested in, and I was very close to actually getting one in the past, but the seller withdrew, unfortunately. And that cost me money (solicitor’s fees and the like…) *shakes head* None of it was my fault, and yet I had to pay out. So… Yeah. Definitely not counting chickens. The good news is, the house is fairly new, I’d heard so… Should be fine.
Okay… Like I say, I’m tired, and I gotta hang the laundry up (I dun have room outside, so it’s all hanging on clothes horses (I know… The coach house would be the same, though) so I’ll see you tomorrow! Hope everything’s going great over there!
Oh… I’ve got some new games as well, including the Last Guardian, but I’ll probably try them out tomorrow, once I wake up in the morning before getting on with the housework! I’ll let you know my first initial impressions tomorrow!
