I struggled to decide how to start this post. Ironic given the theme of today’s Blogmas.
The big news today: I handed in my notice for my flat. I’m officially moving into a shared flat with my friendly and already super helpful flatmate. If all goes well.
As soon as I messaged my landlord I started panicking. What if something goes wrong and I end up with nowhere to live? But once again he has been incredibly lovely and replied by saying if anything goes wrong I’m welcome to stay here. I really hope he doesn’t turn bad. I have had landlords that tried to get all my deposit using silly excuses although they’ve been great and lovely throughout the tenancy. I hope he is not that kind of person.
Although it’s scary, I am excited to be moving. Fresh start, more money saving and I’ll have much more space. I’ve already came up with things I want to do at the new place I couldn’t do here like having plants. I can’t wait.
At lunchtime I went for a flat viewing, this time not for myself but for my fellow Cypriot who is moving to Southampton next month. I think we found the one! It is so much easier to make decisions and way clearer on what the best options are when it comes to others. When personal feelings, emotions and thoughts don’t rudely interfere with common sense it all becomes crystal clear.
On a different note, today I received my first Christmas cards. That means we are getting closer and closer to Christmas!
Although Blogmas consumes a lot of my free time and is more like a personal journal rather than Christmas related posts, it’s been amazing so far. Sitting down at the end of the day and reflecting has been deeply therapeutic. I sometimes forget that others are actually reading this.
Thank you to everyone who’s been following my first Blogmas attempt.
Today I’ll leave you with a beautiful tune by Kira Grannis. Magical vocals and the lyrics hit home.
