Are officially numbered! In 7 days our official tenancy for our new home in Stanley Close begins next week which means that our process of moving out of Knowle Close begins tomorrow, when we sign the agreements and get the keys to the new flat. We're both really looking forward to this. It means we can leave the YMCA for good, never looking back or wanting to live here ever again. It is a big move forward and a big step in the right direction.
I guess I can honestly say that the Village People got it wrong. It wasn't fun to stay at the YMCA. It was noisy, the flat was a shoebox. The doors never closed properly and the place always had the feel that would more commonly be associated with some kind of prison. Not a home. Everyone here always seemed to have this repressed and unhappy look about them and no one trusted anyone else. The walls were paper thin so you could hear everything and everyone else which is not fun, because they can hear you as well.
We went to view the new flat today, and it was lovely. It is ground floor and it is quite a big place. Much bigger than where we live now and its a lot more private. I mean I can actually have a room where I can sleep and relax in peace without the worry about dub-step music or drug dealers. I wonder about having my new items sent to the new place, but what I can do is send them there and if I have to I can collect them from the Depot.
So tomorrow we are going to sign for the keys and the moving process begins. I have begun to move things like the cable, benefits and my bank account to the new place. Tomorrow, we can begin shifting some of the boxes of things over, which means that I am going to have to box up my models and other things.
