.....for a cheaper place to live. I think I've found one.
I had news of a flat available and today I went to see it.
Only one bedroom, but that's all I need, miniscule kitchen, 3 seconds to clean, no carpet, that's a plus.
I hate carpet. It's such a dust catcher.
There are repairs and general maintenance checks going on there at the moment, they'll be finished in a couple of weeks.
I'll know on Monday if and when I can move in.
I'll miss this place, but the rent is getting too high, and with electricity and all other costs of living set to rise (and rise and rise...), I had to do something.
I can't stay here and become one of those elderly people afraid to use the heating because of the cost, (so they freeze to death, we've read about that sort of thing), or have to choose between heating or eating.....this way I'll be able to have both.
This will be a load off my mind.
