Yay! We got the second apartment we saw yesterday! Now that we have really thought about it, I think we both like it better. There's a lot more room, a balcony, many closets, and a lets-invite-friends-for-dinner kitchen. And then there's the elevator. We now live in the 4th floor and have no elevator. It has done wonders to my thighs, but I think I can live without that exercise.
The most exciting part is that we're moving in there in just a couple of weeks. We planned to move in the beginning of March, but in order to get the apartment we had to agree to pay the rent already from mid February. That's all right because it gives us a time frame of two weeks for our moving. A huge stress relief. So is the fact that we're moving to a house on the same street, only two minutes walk from here. I feel so happy and relieved. I love our new, big home already. (It makes me dream of a sofa... oh no...)
I had already given up hope on both apartment, because earlier today I found out that the first apartment was gone, and there we're so many people seeing the second one. I never imagined we could get it. Not only did we get it, I was told we were Chosen :D
Lovely mail today too: a t-shirt & postcards from aMuse. Forgive me not modeling the t-shirt myself, I didn't feel like a supermodel today. I almost never wear prints, at least not on shirts. I have one t-shirt with a print: green elephants, and the shirt used to be my father's back then when both men and clothing used to be really skinny. I decided to give the aMuse t-shirt a try. Printed t-shirts are going to be a part of my new life.
And then there was Japanese fabric from Karaku:
And then I bought some new linens too! The seller in the fabric store thought I was a bit nuts when I carried a linen bolt after another to the cutting table and asked for 0,6 meters or something from each. And the sellers always worry if I have considered shrinkage. I keep telling them that my books aren't machine washable.
I think I'll have some new books ready tomorrow. I'm trying to be really busy now that I still have a lot of free time. I'm most likely starting in a part time job in the near future, and of course, moving is always a hassle.
