So for the past couple of months we have been vaguely talking of moving, but with no great urgency. But last week I just got a bee in my bonnet about the space and I started looking online, and the second place we looked at was really stunning. With the changes in the economy it has meant a drop in rent prices, so we could afford to rent a large two bedroom town house. It has:
Large front room
Large Bedroom(with a wall of windows!)
Tiny Kitchen(more of that later)
Spectacular master bedroom with original stonework walls and wooden beams
Storage space in a garage at the back
You can understand my excitement. So this morning I signed for it and handed in the deposit. We will be moving in on April 1st. But before that we have the mamoth task of moving our insane amount of stuff. Let me explain. I'm a hoarder, I've been doing visual art for 8 years, I've lived here for 5, I work from home, my business is based on collecting things to recycle them, John works from home, and he hoards books and dvds. That all adds up to us have truck loads of stuff....oh and we don't have a car, oh and we live on the third floor....it will be interesting. But it's all worth it because we will have a great living space, and I'm using the larger bedroom as my studio so at last I will have a fantastic space to work in.
Ps: It used to be an office, so the kitchen is the size of a broom closet, but I'm deeply in love with the house so I'll forgive it's warts and wrinkles.
