I told you I was going to move right? And that one of my flatmates was going to be Angus, the 39 y.o. friendly Kiwi.
Well that still is the case. I have packed more than half of my things in boxes, booked a removal company and sent out the first change-of-address notifications.
However I have now found out that my second flatmate is going to be of the male type too. That was not really something I considered could happen when I said yes to Angus, but somehow I will be sharing a very nice three bedroom flat with two men!
Does this worry me? Not really. The new guy (I am calling him Paolo, which isn’t his real name) is Italian, 34, working in an Art Gallery in the West End and very quiet, according to Angus. So I think we will all be fine. And to be honest, generally, I do get along better with men than with women. There just need to be some rules, you know, things like the toilet seat down and things like that. But it is going to be new and exiting, the flat and the area are great, and who knows Paolo might be a brilliant cook of Italian food!
So yes, two weeks from now we’ll have a coffee the three of us and me and Paolo will get the keys. And the next day I move in. I will keep you updated.
Besides moving, I am also going to be social, I will visit the following events:
- visiting the Qype summer party tomorrow
- doing a Ghost bus tour Thursday with the people from 3
- going to Tweetcamp next saturday (there are still free tickets available if you are interested)
For all those three things – I have no idea what it is going to be like, but I will give them all a try. I am not looking forward to the Ghost Bus Tour though – as I am not a fan of anything spooky, but I got invited so I will give it a go.
Tonight I will watch two delightfully talented actors in Waiting for Godot. Next week I will go on a two week video editing (Adobe Premiere) course in Leamington Spa where I hope to learn some new tricks regarding video editing. And when all that is done I will soon be closing the door behind me in my current flat, moving on to a new chapter in my life.
Did I tell you already that you really should go and see Last Chance Harvey? Utterly utterly charming film. Actually.
And what are you all up to?
