Perhaps we're just preternaturally lucky, but the Roomate and I decided to hunt on Saturday, found the perfect place on Sunday, signed the lease on Wednesday, moved on Friday, shopped and set up on Saturday and Sunday, and have a fully running house as of Monday morning, allowing for the cooking of lunch in the morning before she left for work!
It really is a nice feeling to be living with someone I love so much :) Yes we get snippy, especially at 11pm while washing and drying the last of the dishes to be put away. And we're used to different styles of cookers, and different brands of tea; I must have the fan on and she mostly prefers it off, but it just works. There is little to match the joy of actually setting up a kitchen with someone who will treat it with the respect a kitchen deserves!
I just love my new flat :) It's just the right size for the two of us. My room is full of light and the Good Night keeps the mosquitoes away. The fan groans just the right amount, and theres enough signal on my datacard to manage to check work email and not fall behind. And did I mention, it's about 15 minutes away from most of the places I like to go with my friends! The best bit is that I get to pop off home to the parental house and luxuriate in internet and generally being in their house, which mitigates missing them.
And now I should go and do something. Like think of what else I wish to filch out of here and smuggle off with me! :D
