We’re on the move…as a certain Mr L Vandross once sang. That’s right ladles and jellyspoons, The Laughing Wolf is continuing his trend of refusing to live more than a couple of years in one place..and is moving across Frankfurt to a beautiful apartment that has just been finished.
I would love to say that I am being a grown up, getting on the property ladder and actually buying the apartment…but no, I will be renting again. This time I will be renting with CW, and we are both very much looking forward to having you all over to dinner. Well, not all of you and definitely not you on the left..but the rest of you…you know who you are.
My current apartment has served me well, but it was never supposed to be a long term thing and was nothing more than a bachelor pad. A poorly decorated, but superbly located bachelor pad. We are moving to a very quiet part of town…I am not sure how I will cope without the sounds from the pub below lulling me off to sleep. Although I won’t miss not being able to have a quiet night in due to people shouting me from downstairs.
That all said, the White Van Man does not have to ride again, as a friend of CWs family has offered to do the move for us..which means I just have to help load and unload the van…and when you consider that I have very few actual posessions…it should be nice and easy.
I worked it out that after I moved into the current place, I owned:
1 set of bunk beds
1 computer desk
1 office chair
1 tumble dryer
Assorted pots/pans/crockery and cutlery
An iron and ironing board
1 ugly set of drawers
I have since added:
2 cheap wardrobes and matching cheap set of drawers
Another office chair
A giant slicer (thanks to CWs Dad)
A coffee pad machine
Fortunately, CW has plenty of stuff…so it will all work out
I think that the best thing about the new apartment is that the toilet is inside…not in the main house stairwell like it is now (and by in the main stairwell I mean in it’s own room..outside the front door of the apartment…..not that we pee in the stairwell). That and the fact that there is a bathtub and a brand spanking new kitchen that got installed a few days ago.
So there it is, cue massive underestimation of the work required and a marked increase in procrastination when I should be packing. Oh, and the internet probably won’t get connected in time again..we shall see
