House viewings - why it's all bullshit

I’m moving house in exactly six days.


There’s paperwork to do, boxes to pack, contacts to sign, cleaning, organising, phone calls, emails, faxes,  more packing, faxes, faxes, faxes, keys to swap, credit checks to complete, moving men, driving, unloading of vans, more panic – and hopefully some very strong sleeping pills and a large glass of wine once the whole nightmare is over. 935 more words

Flat hunting tomorrow, after my leafletting shift, then off to a job interview/chat thing.

Moving on

We’re moving. Not countries this time but 45 minutes into ‘town’. It makes everything seem a bit more permanent which is…well on the one hand surprisingly not weird, and on the other, a cue for a panic attack. 474 more words


4 days Flat Hunting in Chiang Mai

DAY 1: So we just arrived yesterday – having taken the 2nd class night train service, we arrived just before 9am. We didn’t want to commit on a place to live from back home over the internet as we wanted to get a feel for the city, the different areas, how easy it might be to walk between places, and how our life might unfold over the next few months. 1,566 more words
