House Descisions

So, Adrian and I have discussed things, and worked out that it’s going to be cheaper for both of us for us not to share a house together.


The main reason for this is because I have geographical limitations, and he doesn’t. I work in Brunswick and don’t have a car, so anywhere I live needs to have good access to Public Transport that allows me an easy access to work. This means the preferred areas are anywhere along the Upfield train, or along the 1, 8, or 19 trams.


The problem with this is they are old established areas, and tend to be expensive. This means our options for renting are an old place, which means it’s probably not been well maintained (because it’s a rental) which will be basically swapping the problems with this place for problems in another place; or a new place that will be too small, or too expensive.


However, I can get a one-bedroom apartment near work that would end up costing me about the same or less than I pay here (once other costs are factored in), and Adrian can get a different housemate and move further out for less, as all he needs is access to the city.


So, that’s basically what we’ve decided to do.


The problem? I own far too much stuff, and I really need to get rid of most of it. So, I will be getting rid of a lot of furniture over the next short while, most of it for the nominal fee of “you want it, you move it”.


And to be honest, even if I wasn’t moving into a one bedroom apartment, I probably should be getting rid of all of the excess crap anyway.


Wish me luck! (Any and all help gratefully appreciated).

If you want to hire a moving van, I can drive it (not sure if you have your licence). Also, I'm looking for a set of proper shelves for my craft room so wouldn't mind having a look at some of yours.

Don't think this gets you out of being fed, boyo!

Yell if you need moving boxes. And hugs. Actually, have hugs anyway *hugs*

The shelves I'm definitely getting rid of would probably be good for the crafting room as the larger bottom section would be good for holding larger things. They are yours if you want them.

I can drive, but as far as the move is concerned, the major problem is that I'm not physically capable of the amount of physical effort required, which is why I usually hire MiniMovers to do the move. I'll probably do the same again this time, but (im)moral support would be greatly appreciated.

*hugs*

Know that feeling. Moving sucks.

And "Immoral support"? I don't understand. Is there any other sort?

Shall I come over later this week to check things out? And the shelves?

I'll be late home Tuesday night (chiro and massage appointment) but other than that I should be available any night during the week if you want to come over.

*hugs*

Yay! Moving!
Would be there with buckets and bells if I wasn't here... :(

I did a massive cull of my wall of crap before I moved here. It was easier than I thought it would be once I got going... I really wish that I had done it a lot sooner.

Happy to help in any way you can think of, just let me know?
(Even if it's late-night Skype-buddy while you pack. ;)

I don't think that would help. Talking to you would distract me far too much. :)

Which reminds me, we still have your cat cage. Do you want to hang on to it?

If you would like to look after it for a bit longer, that would be awesome. Means something that I don't have to worry about moving.

Thanks.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
