A new House

[Friday 1st May 2009]

Since the surgery was not enough in April, I also had the great idea of moving to a new place at the end of the month.
Let's say that the surgeon told me that I was "going to walk in 3 days", so I thoungh that 2 weeks from the surgery would have been ok, but the reality is that the pain and discomfort are actually lasting (as now) for almost 3 weeks...

This new house story has been a very big source of stress for me. At first Chiara wanted to buy and I wanted to rent (one year ago). Then when the economy collapsed and mortgages become more interesting I changed my mind, but unfortunately also Chiara did not want to persue her former wish.

In the end we had a 6 month notice to give so we looked both at houses to rent and to buy, but although I might be too "soft", and inclined to take the fist thing that I like, Chiara has been a bit too "rigid" and in the end nothing that we saw was good.

We ended up having to rent a place that it's smaller than the one that we left, in a nicer area, more or less for the same amount of money of the previous place.

Moving was done in one day, of course we had to call some people to help us out because my conditions are not good for lifting weights up and down the stairs.

Now we have almost settled everything there will be a couple of thing that we need to buy because the deal that we were given was really shite, and the landlord left a lot of useless pieces of furniture that are just taking up that little space that we have there.

It's not going to be easy to live in a smaller place, I already do not like it very much, but the idea is that this house is a temporary solution until we buy a place. My resolution is to look for houses to buy anyways, I am sure that I can find some decent place!

I expect the new place to be "finished" in a month's time, after that should be more comfortable to use and to live in!
