From furnished to unfurnished and how you can help me make the transition less painful and/or surgically invasive.
I won’t lie- money is super-tight right now. And by saying super-tight, I’m subtly implying non-existent. This move was unexpected* and so, as you can imagine, we hadn’t established a ‘moving fund’ for anytime in the foreseeable future, let alone for immediate use. This fund would need several thousand pounds in it right this minute.
So I thought that I’d take a moment to mention that if anyone was considering a housewarming gift, a little Paypal donation would be the most helpful way to spread your love. You’ll find a link in my sidebar (in the second section, Pages) and any housewarming gift amount you send to my Paypal will be going directly into the first month’s rent/security deposit/IKEA fund, as well as a van rental.
(I’ve budgeted the bare necessities at IKEA and that alone will cost approximately ¬£750. * sigh *)
We haven’t finished paperwork for the new flat yet but the ball is rolling. Hopefully by the middle of next week we’ll know – with certainty – our new address. I’m not the type who asks for anything, but I just thought I’d mention how you could best help, if perhaps you were thinking of doing a little something. (Though I love Amazon Wish List presents, that stuff isn’t going to keep me off the streets – or away from trying to find an egg buyer.)
So many boxes, so little time. Let the stress begin… yowsa!
* The landlord sprung the news on us a few days ago that he’s selling the flat we’re in now within a few weeks. Eek!
